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). : )

  4. 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 :)

  20. 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.
