This month seems to have come and almost gone in an instant. I have been busy with work; fabric designs, pattern designs, sewing, writing and shipping. I am looking forward to August because we are having fabulous friends come and visit us from Iceland and I am intending on taking some much needed vacation!!
The prizes from the shop hop went in the mail last week....you lucky winners should be getting your goodies any time now. Thanks all of you again for participating in the hop and stay tuned for the next one in the fall.
I bet you are curious to know what I have been working on? I just submitted a new fabric line that will be introduced next spring and in stores fall 2010!! Yes....I know.....it is way too long until then so I won't talk about it any more.....I can't show it to you anyway...anytime soon.
But I have been sewing a little bit.....check out those Glow strips....getting the hint? This quilt is for a special project that I will tell you about next month, but will also be released as a new pattern in October. It was really fun to get to sew for a change....somehow I don't get to do that much lately!!
Talking about Glow....the countdown is on for it to hit store shelves....I just got my newest Quilter's Home magazine, August/September issue and look what I found inside: Mark talking about my fabric!! I was so excited to see it because I had kind of forgotten that Mark had called me and chatted about the fabric line a while ago. Now....I know what you are thinking.....how can you forget that Mark called you? You don't really get phonecalls from a more exciting, energetic, fast talking, fabulous and fun person.....ever!! But picture this: It was on a Sunday morning....pretty early here in the central timezone!! I had just woken up....tiptoed downstairs to try and not wake any of the kids up so I could have a little alone time with a cup of juice and the computer. Hair not brushed, face not washed, not dressed (no bra!!), brain totally not on yet since it was the morning after a neighborhood party. Phone rings....and I grab it right away....so the kids don't wake up....answer with a squeaky morning voice and hear "GOOD MORNING SUNSHINE, IS THIS GUDRUN?...THIS IS MARK LIPINSKI...HOW ARE YOU?" OMG, I start patting down my hair, straighten my back.....like he is gonna see me!!! Somehow I made it through the phonecall....I think without him suspecting that I just opened my eyes....allthough my brain just didn't quite produce like it really can when it is turned on!! I was just so glad that those video phones just haven't really caught on yet, because he could have done some damage with the sight on the other end of the phone line. Sorry Mark.....now I am always prepared to answer the phone....I will at least turn the brain on before I answer!!
