Back At It

Well, hello there! How are you all? I've missed you while I've been slaving away on my Connecting Threads contest entry! But at the same time, I did enjoy the freedom of my blogging (and sewing) break. I felt like I could a) breathe and b) really focus on my design work. That felt very good indeed. It is not an exaggeration to say that I have been sleeping, eating, and living these designs. They're the first thing I think about in the morning when I wake up, and the last thing I think about at night when I fall asleep. And I'm probably dreaming about them in between, but I'm so tired, I don't remember. : )

I so wish I could show you the results of all of this work. I just don't think it's quite there yet. But I will say that I truly love what I've done. It was touch-and-go for a while, but around the middle of last week, I had a breakthrough, and there was no going back. I'm kind of working a Farmer's-Wife-goes-Bollywood vibe—and if that isn't the most whacked description you've ever heard of a fabric collection, I would love to know what is! So stay tuned, because I'm going to have a BIG post featuring all the prints coming up in just a few days.

In the meantime, WIP Wednesday will be back tomorrow. Yesterday I turned on my sewing machine for the first time in almost a week, and I've even fit in a little work on my 4x5 bee blocks.

Also, Angie of Stitching By Starlight is featuring ME today in her "10 for Ten" interview series! She had a fun list of questions that I enjoyed answering, so head over there to read about little old me. And every 10 for Ten interview features an amazing giveaway, so even if you couldn't care less about what movies I like, I know you won't want to miss out on free fabric. : ) Thank you, Angie!

  14. Welcome back from Freak-Out Mode. Sometimes it is nice to take a break from incessant blogging even if it is just to refresh one's brain once in a while. And even better to take a break when someone has a great idea that they just have to spend time with. I'm glad your time away was fruitful--you know we all just didn't know what to do with our Wednesday!
