It's been a draining week or so, getting the last fabric line all prepped & completed.
But, it's done, (. . . inside I'm doing a happy dance, but outside, I'm a wee bit too tired!), & last evening I uploaded & sent the off the files. (whew!)
It's amazing to me of how the whole process starts off so tactile - so hands-on - for me. . . & yet there is now this technological part of getting the drawings, paintings, sketches, & vintage fabric pieces that I start with, ready for the fabric mill to be able to produce it.
Me. . . while I love the whole process of design,
. . . I'm more of a tactile person.
So over the last week, in the evenings, when I just couldn't look at the computer screen & 'paint' another detail for the fabric line, I sat & played with my Betsy's Closet dress designs.
I reduced their size - so that this will be a little quilt size,
. . . & I had such fun!
. . . stitching the fabric prints!
. . . one would lead to another. . .
. . . & to another. . . until I had all of them done.
(I was actually a little sad when I was done stitching!)
But today. . . with the last fabric design completed & sent off. . .
I'm going to spend the day in the studio making the little sashing & borders for my little Betsy's Closet stitcheries. (. . . & I can feel another happy dance coming!)
. . . & yes, since many have been asking for this over the years, I will be making this a pattern. First it will be an exclusive on the website (& there will be a limited number of kits too!), so keep a look out!
Hope you have a wonderful day!
