Thank you so much for the wonderful welcome to the world of blogging. Your kind
words have got me really excited about this new (to me!) form of communicating with friends.
Thanks especially to the other Moda designers for your gracious encouragement! What a
sweet group of talented ladies you are!
Many of my fabric groups in the past have had Saltbox themes in them...Saltbox Harvest, for
example. Thought you might like to see our "real-life" Saltbox. Of course the picture above was taken in the fall.
is a little more true to life today. Last week we saw 8 deer walking along the ridge that you see
here. What a beautiful scene that was!
My garden is waiting for the snow to melt, just like all of us. I thought this picture captured
Christmas Tree" growing out of it and a cardinal in the top. Maybe a little rabbit sitting beside it?
That is how my inspiration starts. One image or picture and then building from that.
Of course, it really helps when I am designing a line in the correct season. Sometimes, I work
on Christmas in July and play Christmas carols to get me in the mood. Visitors think I am crazy
listening to "Jingle Bells" while the air-conditioner is blasting and the kids are playing in the water
from the hose!
Fortunately, the fabric line that I am designing right now IS in the correct season. Can you guess
what holiday it is for? I'll give you a hint...it is due Feb. 14th and I hope you LOVE it next year
when it comes out!
Until next time, HUGS and KISSES (another hint!),
