A bit more Tapestry…

Remember how I mentioned a little while back that this next line coming up is one of my favorites…. well I think I still feel that way. It has every single one of my favorite colors in it!

The other day when I was having a particularly daunting day and I should have been working on ten different projects and dealing with a few big family issues but couldn't motivate myself for any one of them, I worked on changing all of my screen savers to the picture of the stack I showed you.

It made me happy on that hard day. Hope it might do the same thing for some of you soon!

Here are a few more shots of the few teeny, tiny pieces I have. Anxiously awaiting the arrival of air yardage sometime soon!





Hope you all have some fabric near you that is making  your hard days a bit easier!

    That’s a lovely palette. I know I will add these to my Fig Tree collection!

  17. Patricia Conner | 17th Apr 12

    Some times I go into my stacks of fabric and just pick them up hold them for a few seconds, turn them over and even put my favorites up to my cheek ( I guess caress is the word ) and put them back in the stack. Makes me feel better. some of your fabric is in that stack too. Hope all gets better for you soon. PC

    I have lost a dear cousin this week and it has reminded me just how difficult it is to say goodbye to someone you love. You and your family are in my heart and I continue to pray and trust for His Grace to bless and keep you..throughout this season and always. We are in His tender care.

  30. Grace | 17th Apr 12

    I love mixing your different fabric lines with other lines you have past produced. I like the darker plum and think it will contrast well. Still to this day my favorite is the gypsy rose, but none of your fabric lines were ever not to my liking. I still have a stash with some of the gypsy rose and think this plum may be a good coordinate.

  31. Anna | 17th Apr 12

    Hang in there…one thing I know is life keeps going whether we are ready or not! The new line is so beautiful!

  32. Amy DeCesare | 17th Apr 12

    It’s so nice to know that we’re not alone…so many of us feel that attachment to fabrics, and find peace or enjoyment through them. We’re lucky you share your designs with us!

  33. charlotte | 17th Apr 12

    Oooooh, that peachy colored fabric comforts me. What a great color.

  34. Kate Brown | 17th Apr 12

    So very fresh and pretty!

  35. Tami | 28th Apr 12

    I hope your day got better after looking at some of your pretty fabric….I know my day is always much better when I read your blog and look at some of the yumminess that is your fabric!!
