The Flower Queen

I have been working madly on my new fabric collection at Spoonflower, the Flower Queen. I’ve been working on it so much that I’ve pretty much dropped the ball on everything else. Oy. You might call it an obsession.

I haven’t been crafting. I haven’t been sewing. I haven’t kept in contact with family. I haven’t kept in contact with friends. I haven’t blogged. (You might have noticed that.) It’s completely eclipsed everything else (except for a small, somewhat serious bug I picked up somewhere last week – the less said of that, the better we’ll all feel).

Anyway, now that the main design of the collection is complete, I’m free to get back to my regular schedule. It’s time for quilting the Etchings Argyle Nine Patch Bed Scarf! Yay!

Yay? Sniff. I’ve been putting it off, honestly. The Flower Queen collection was just a somewhat convenient excuse for procrastination. This quilted bed scarf is the first serious bit of free motion quilting I’ll attempt. If I were wearing boots, I’d be shaking in them.

I hate being chicken.


Forget Fall

I’m thinking about Winter.

A sneak peek at my Winter collection at fig+fence.

Brrrr. I want it to snow this year. I need it to snow this year.


What is up with me and greenish blue lately? It’s all I’m thinking about. I painted my bathroom greenish blue. The Etchings Argyle Nine Patch quilt top I just finished had lots of greenish blue in it. My new blog design has a ton of greenish blue. All of my new fabric designs for Spoonflower involve some sort of greenish blue. And now I’m working on CafePress items with greenish blue. I think I’m in a color rut.

I think that it’s time for some red and green in that new Winter collection at Spoonflower.
