Yuuumm, Good Enough to Eat

Its That Time
Its that crazy time of year we’re preparing for…. I won’t even say it… but the bad word starts with M and ends with T and its another name for shop… if that doesn’t help you, then don’t worry, its probably better for you if you don’t anything about the busy frenzy that most fabric and pattern designers are in these days.
For us here in the Fig Tree Studio, work is clipping along at a steady pace. I met with a group of my favorite creative gals last night and one of them asked me if I was in a panic yet… I said, “Panic, yeah, I’ve done that already, I’ve moved through now, I’m on to calmly checking things off my to do list…. TODAY anyway. Talk to me again tomorrow and it might be a different story”.

Fun Stuff
I wanted to share a wonderful apron that my friend Kathleen made based on a vintage apron pattern, using some of the fabrics from my Cornucopia line. I just love it and wearing it in the kitchen makes me feel like an old-fashioned 50’s housewife… in the good, nostalgic way, not the oppressed way LOL. Kathleen makes custom aprons using your own hand picked fabric and I think each of you need to have one… email her at stanleygraphichs@sbcglobal.net
