Fig Tree DESIGNER SELECT SOLID BUNDLE… brought to you by MODA!

If you are new here today, welcome to my little corner of the world wide web!  I know I have already talked just a wee bit about these this summer but today is a special day in blogland. It is MODA BELLA SOLIDS DAY! If you float around a little today, you might notice that several of us designers are talking about our bundle… all of them are quite yummy, each representing the colors in that designer's signature palette. Ours is…. well, classic Fig Tree. Not pastel. Not primary. Not totally bright, not totally soft. Somewhere in-between. "Fresh Vintage" is how we have always called it. But this bundle can be best described as plain SHERBET… there is no two ways around it. SHERBETS all of them! Our BELLA SOLID colors include the following: ivory, butterscotch, cantaloupe, coral, persimmon…

…A Little More Recap

I am literally on my way out the door this morning… If you want to follow along, you can do that on INSTAGRAM as I hope to over gram this adventure from beginning to end.  But for now I just have a few Market shots to share, mostly because I promised that I would. I was completely in love with the outfits that MODA made for their booth displays… and of course that chair fabric.            And of course I am completely obsessed with all things Jen…         And it was so lovely to meet a few of our newest designers and hang out with the ones that were new to MODA but that I already knew and loved….       That Chelsi is a crack up!   Oh and of course my newest obsession…. Erin's new…

Deadlines, Fun Projects & More!

Hello Friends! I love SO many of the suggestions that you guys sent in for naming the boy turtle on the Fiona pattern but I think I am going to have to go with…. Finn! I love Fiona and Finn and I totally wish that I had thought of us naming the boy before the pattern went to print! Oh well, he will just have to be Finn to us personally even if only Fiona is named on the pattern LOL! But I do also love the idea of Baby Fergus so I am going to work up a baby turtle as soon as I can. When I do, I will give you guys some info on how to make him if you have the Fiona pattern. Thanks everyone… that was fun! I think Claudia was the first one to mention Finn and Joni mentioned Fergus and Merrilee mentioned Baby…

Market Recap… for real

Of course Market was a lovely adventure as always. Eric and I both hate it and love it every single time. Since we do it two times a year and we have been doing this for more than ten years… well, we've done a lot of them and still always love it and hate it?! It is a crazy amount of work but it is the best time to see friends and colleagues, to showcase our new products and to generally participate in this wonderful industry of ours. Regardless of how much we might whine and complain, we wouldn't have it any other way. This time around due to a completely crazy schedule over here in Fig Tree land and a huge retail show the weekend before Market, we opted to showcase our goodies in the MODA DESIGNER SHOWCASE area instead of having our own…
