Nothing like timing!

Yesterday I was working away in my studio, patting myself on the back for how much I was accomplishing when the door bell rang. It was the UPS man. I knew I was in trouble when I saw the two big boxes of fabric from Henry Glass. Of course my husband wasn’t home so I drug them in the door, and started unpacking. The end result is my studio is now piled high with stacks of my Lollipop Lane baby flannel. STACKS! Waiting for me. Calling my name even though I only have 4 more weeks of actual design time. I know I’m not alone. Lots of designers are still waiting on fabric. This is sample yardage that comes in advance of the actual bolts. I have boy bunnies, girl bunnies, pinks, greens, yellows and blues. The cutest combination of soft, 2 ply flannel just for baby so I’m not complaining, but…

It’s supposed to get up close to 90 degrees this weekend and I’ll working with flannel. Wanna come help me sew? Bring a fan please.

  • Diane - Anne, I HEAR you!!! I am still waiting for a box also. I just finished 3 tops, one of them 73″ square. Am longarming today, have 2 more tops to sew, then the last one from the box I’m waiting for, and I wonder why I can sleep!!!! We are getting 90 degrees this week too! I live near Las Vegas, actually Henderson, so the cities really run together, there is no separation anymore! Where in Calif are you? I was native till we moved here 4 yrs ago. Happy sewing! Diane at least my designs are all done!ReplyCancel

  • Diane - Did I say I CAN sleep???!!! Incredulous! What typo was that!!!!

    I mean, I can’t sleep at all. Not until about 3 or 4 am. Sometimes I just get out of bed and sew, I might as well accomplish something, right?! lol! 4 weeks, only 4 weeks! Diane, in HendersonReplyCancel

  • KSedlak - Anne,
    This fabric is just adorable. I can’t wait to get my hands on some.
    Well, I envy you. I wish I could be in 90 degree weather right now. I have been so cold this spring, we should be turning our heat down by now and I have to turn it up.
    I will be thinking about you though, I know flannel doesn’t mix well with hot weather.
    Take care and have fun anyway.

  • Jackie - That fabric looks so sweet!! You know here in CT it still is a bit nippy and I could certainly help you. Come on over my way to cool down. I got several sewing machines and a longarm. We can do it from start to finish! Although, I do wish I had some of your warmer weather.ReplyCancel
