MODA Country Fair!

I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend filled with the outdoors, BBQ, popsicles and friends! We did a little bit of all of the above and managed to get in some fabulous flea market shopping while we were at it, an overnight teaching trip to Las Vegas for me, some Cafe Rio with one of my favorite designer friends, some football and whiffle ball in the street and an impromptu play with original song lyrics and guitar playing, performed by three 6 years olds sitting up in our tree :-)!                                                             &#0160…

MODA Booth Love

Although it seems that I barely made it out of my booth this time around in order to walk the show and take my obligatory photos of friends and colleagues, I did get a little series of pics of the MODA booths right after closing one day. It's actually my favorite time to take pictures. When it is all quiet and everyone has gone back to their hotel for the day, there is a quiet beauty to the booths without any people in them. Helps to look at all the little details that I miss during the day. I thought it was a great representation of the amazing job that MODA does every single Market, every single year, year in, year out. I don't think that anyone would disagree that for years now the quality and the professionalism that MODA puts out there as a leading…

Swatch Guesses & a Thank you or 2

Thank you to everyone for playing! For those of you who have not been following along on this crazy giveaway whirlwind of the Pillow Talk, I know you are tired of listening to me talk about it! This is the end I promise!! I have now read through every single comment and, as is always true with these things, I am so touched and humbled by all of you! You rock! I love that so many of you remember your first Fig Tree project! Not sure I do LOL. I love that so many of you have taken swatches of our fabrics to the paint store with you to match for one home project or another. I wish I could visit each of your homes! I love that several of you are Polish, have best friends that are, or have been to Poland or a nearby Slavic country. Dzien Dobry…

Just dinner

I hope you get my title humor this afternoon, it is Friday after all! It feels like I have been giving things away all week. Come to think of it, I think I have LOL! Today's winner will receive a mini bundle of our BUTTERCUP collection. These are the best little bundles of goodies. Half the size of a traditional bundle or "tower" of fabric, these comprise of (40) fat 1/8ths… which is a fat quarter cut in half [9 x 22]… enough to make a lot of good stuff I promise! We really need to come up with a good name for these things, Lissa?
