what's been going on then?

lots of stitching 

lots of circles

lots of mess

lots of charity shop browsing

lots of hexagons

lots of colour

lots of blooms

...and lots of new samples of summersville spring!!!
two weeks? how did that happen? sorry i disappeared from view...i won't bore you with same old excuses...instead i'll show you some snapshots of what's been going on because i'm too lazy busy to actually write anything of interest. but i thought the last image in particular might interest you for it is a little peak of summersville spring. if you're a shop owner in the states, the reps have received it this week...not sure about everywhere else i'll be truthful! i tried to get a good balance of colours across the collection and to include some new (to me) colours...hopefully you'll agree that they work well? i'm so excited by this - i'll be honest, it's easy to get the collywobbles about a collection when you haven't seen it for a while, but when these sheets were delivered today, i felt really proud...should be in stores by february in the states, probably march and april everywhere else. epp!

I love your story about your home town. I live in Melbourne Australia, I am going to look up about that flight crossing. My eldest daughters favorite author is Roald Dahl, I am going to find that book. Thanks for the tip. Thank you also for your time and generosity. I am loving hopping all over and learning about different designers. Toymum

Hi! I just wanted to tell you that I just saw Summersville Brushstrokes (in blue) fabric on a tv show that I watch. It's called Storage Wars Texas. It was shown being used in a refurb project in the Season 2 episode 20 called "Hate to Burst your Bubba." I said to myself, "that's cool, I know and love that fabric!" Just thought you might get a kick out of this little tidbit.
