Sorry for the posting delay today. We have been experiencing
some technical difficulties with our network but we're keeping our fingers crossed that all is fixed now….
Good morning everyone. Hope you had a great Super Bowl
weekend. Sure was an exciting game regardless of which team you were rooting
for! Even though it didn’t quite end the way we hoped it would over here in the
San Francisco Bay Area, it was a great time to be with friends, eat good food and
enjoy the excitement of the game. At least that is what Eric is telling himself as he mopes around the office this morning….
Today we are kicking off the beginning of the Fat Quarter
Shop’s BOM Blog Tour, starting with us Basket Gals- me, Sandy and Edyta! Love
those gals and I can’t wait to see their baskets. Following the baskets will come stars, blossoms and houses… sounds like a party to me!
Ours happens to be on the top of this lovely little stack so
you get a good sneak peek of it. If curiosity doesn’t get you to sign up to see
al the other upcoming blocks, then I don’t know what will!
The folks at the FQS asked us to tell you about our ultimate
gift basket as a part of the blog hop. I think I have found a new calling…. As
I thought about ultimate gift baskets and went virtual shopping for them, I found
that I could make a gift basket out of almost any color grouping or theme. I
made kitchen baskets and bath baskets, house baskets and garden baskets, all
from my favorite stores. It was a little too much fun if you ask me. I finally
settled on a “basket” from one of my favorite stores, Anthropologie and one of
my favorite current colors, aqua and seafoam. This is what I came up with.
If anyone would like to make me that gift basket for any
occasion… birthday, Christmas, Anniversary, Bastille Day, Groundhog Day… any
day would be fine!
Even just my favorite little mini bowls would be fine. Anyone?
As for the BOM, we’ve already told you that we are absolutely in love with the
collection that’s being used but as you know that is a seriously biased
statement since Kim decided to use our AVALON for this one! Yeah!
Avalon is a slightly retro, slightly nautical, definitely summer feeling fabric line that contains our signature tomato reds, a wonderful apple green and a soft buttery yellow. Its grounded with a bright aqua and wonderful tone of navy as well as a soft, warm greay that is a perfect neutral. The whole collection is set in a light ivory color that sets off the rest of the fabris and makes them sparkle!
Not only that, but
we love all the gals involved in the project. They are our design "sisters" and we appreciate all of them so much! They are truly the best. So… you really can’t go wrong
with this one. And that’s a lot coming from someone who is generally not a BOM
kind of gal….
I hope you enjoy the hop.
I hope you send me some bowls [kidding really].
I hope you follow all the other designers on
And I hope that you check in with Kimberly and the crew for more information on everything and on their
