I got Mail

I got a fantastic surprise in the mail today - the first test strike offs of my fabric designs from Adaptive Textiles. It is amazing how quickly they can produce the finished product once they receive the art work. These are very rough - first test efforts printed on a fine cotton sateen. They don't look half bad if I do say so myself.



Now, I will be working on color variations and backgrounds. I have to say, this is the most fun I have ever had at work. I'm hooked!

You must be thrilled. I am living vicariously through the process with you, with envy, I might add. You are doing something that I have always wondered about and wished I had pursued long ago. I love seeing your color choices and designs. Thanks for keeping us updated in spite of your 24-7 schedule!

Ohhh.... how lucky you are, to be working with your own fabrics. I wish i loved men as much as i love fabrics. Ive only helped design and color wallpaper never fabric, best of luck and the colors and patterns as lovely!!!
