this week the fabric collection i designed for art gallery fabrics arrived on my door step! be still my heart. seeing it finally on fabric gives me such an overwhelming feeling of excitement and gratitude. it represents so much to me. years and years of dreams, hard work, ups and downs.
though the official line won't be in stores until june, the advanced yardage (for projects and promotions) arrived this week. my mom and i leave wednesday for spring quilt market in portland where i'll have my own booth with art gallery fabrics!
having my own booth at market has always been my ultimate dream, one i wasn't sure would ever come true. now that's just around the corner, it's both completely exhilarating and a little nerve racking!
with a last minute arrival of the fabric, my mom and i have had to get a little creative with our approach. we're staying together this week and doing pretty much nothing but sewing, brainstorming, and then sewing some more. so far, we're about 40% done with the projects we've planned and have 4 more days to complete them. i have high hopes we can do it, but it's going to be intense. i'm so thankful for you mom, i couldn't do it without you!
though i don't want to reveal too much about the plans i have for my booth (i'll be sharing more about it with you soon!), we've been busy quilting, sewing, cutting and making lots of mocks ups to get the layout right.
next week is going to be insane. david and i are closing on our new home on tuesday, my mom and i leave for quilt market on wednesday, david and i celebrate our 5th year wedding anniversary on thursday (phone date, anyone?), and qulit market begins on friday. whew!
thank you so much for reading and sticking in there with me. i'm so thankful for each of you! xox, bonnie
