A girl can dream, right?
For me, designing fabric is all about dreaming. I dream I'm in other places and of the life I'd life... In my fabric designing dreams, this is who I think I am... (watch video)
Should I burst your bubble?
Here's my real life: Today, I am in my PJs making color corrections on Splendor 1920. It's noon. I haven't showered. And, yesterday, for instance...
7am: Laying in bed thinking, I better get up and finish up the changes on the patterns and get them out the door. There were just a few details left, and I want them to the printer by noon.
7:30am: Still laying in bed thinking the same thing when the phone rings. My poor sister sounds like she's been hit by a Mack truck. Turns out she and her husband had eaten something very very not good and were, well, quite sick. Meanwhile their 9 month old and 2 1/2 year old boys were apparently at the ship's helm. Deciding that was probably a bad plan of action, she called me to come steer the ship out of the muck. I quickly brushed my teeth, washed my face and threw on what resembled clothing and ran over there. It can be noted that I did not brush my hair, and I in no way looked like the woman above. This didn't matter much because about 30 minutes later I found myself covered in what can be described as baby-goo and no longer judging my sister for her well-worn yoga pants.
And, in the end, none of it mattered... because at the same time...
somewhere in UPS-land men in brown uniforms started delivering packages of LillyBelle to quilt shops all over the country...
...so that we all can dream the LillyBelle dream. So, go ahead... despite the spit-up in your hair or the coffee stain on your shirt... dream you are LillyBelle.
Edit: Heavens, a buzz over the shoes on the social media ... I'm told that they were purchased here, some time back. But you can still get similar styles.
