New Fabrics

Where do the days go? I have been so busy doing ....well I'm sure it was important at the time. Oh yes it was market time at my showroom. That's why I'm pooped and cant think straight. Making a few new samples, taking pictures, laying out the new catalog, making packets for the reps......and then there's the website. My love-hate relationship. I've been redoing it so a whole new look will be up soon. I think it will be a little more user friendly. This one man show stuff is tough but if I wasnt doing it I dont know what I would do with myself. You really do have to follow your passion.

I just read "The Martha Rules" by Martha Stewart. She has good advice and some stories that not only made me chuckle, but surprised me. Like when she catered a fancy dinner and burned one of the courses. Her amazing advice is "dont panic.....cut the pie up and throw out the bad part". She devotes a whole chapter to this theory. I just picked up the "Portable Coach". I'll let you know if its a good read.

These are the new fabrics I am adding to my collection of pillows, aprons and tea towels. I think they are so sweet. The colors are so pretty they just make me happy! The pink/white combo I call "Whisper" and the pink/yellow combo is "Daydream".

Have a great day girls and thanks for stopping by,

Your fabrics are lovely. What do you make with them and where is your showroom? Just curious! I can't tell from the post.

Mmmm. . . love those fabrics. We only have Joanne's Fabrics which is limited. I like Moda and Shabby Fabrics, but buying online can get pricey!
