Entering Freak-Out Mode ... Now

Hello—it's September 20! That means I have to finish designing my entire Connecting Threads fabric collection in the next ten days! omgomgomgomg.

If Tim Gunn were paying me a home visit right now, I think he might pronounce himself worried. And I certainly wouldn't want Tim Gunn to worry about me—not even an imaginary Tim Gunn. So I'm signing off for the rest of the week. No blog posting, no blog reading. I may actually go to the trouble of temporarily un-installing Google Chrome from my computer. That's how serious I am.

So, there will be no WIP Wednesday tomorrow. Feel free to post a WIP update anyway, but the linky will be AWOL this week. Bear with me. I will resurface at some later date with a fabulous line of fabrics (knock on wood). : )

Funny that you mention Tim, I said to my husband if I could line up a babysitter, I would totally do a Tim Gunn-esque visit to you right now! I know you can do this, don't worry about WiP Wednesday, we will be A-OK, and your fabric collection is going to be gorgeous :)

You can do it!! (and of course you should already be unplugged and designing... and not reading this comment by now). Sending lots of good designing mojo your way!!

Natalie said...

make sure to add some prints that are small scaled, geometric, blender type fabrics that go with your line but could work in anyone's stash! dots, stripes, zigzags, etc. A fabric collection needs fabrics that work with the 'wow' fabrics to balance it all out.

Jessica said...

Good luck! I know what ever you come up with will be absolutely fabulous!!

Melissa @ Happy Quilting said...
