All about a girl.
Girl had a dream to design fabric.
Girl sat drawing with pencil & paper until things where just right, the drawings, the colors, the design, the style.
...at times - Girl had no idea what she was doing.
Girl brought a portfolio and filled it with artwork for three different fabric lines.
Girl booked a ticket to the USA to talk to the right people.
Girl flew to the USA and wondered if anyone would take her seriously.
Girl went to the one place at Market that felt like home.
Girl arrived at Lecien.
And that was just the beginning.
Welcome to Woodland
The image above is the cover page from my portfolio, it's the very first thing you see when you open the black cover - then there are pages of drawings and color story, I should share that one day.
I love everything about Woodland - the bold color & playful nature are just me all over.
"Imagine visiting a woodland village with inquisitive fairies, a little garden path leads you to a tiny toadstool village with friendly neighbors. A gathering of girls, birds and lady bugs will become your good friends throughout the journey." This was my Woodland inspiration...
There are six designs in the line offered in seven colorways (or 32 bolts)
It's Woodland by (that girl) Natalie Lymer of Cinderberry Stitches for Lecien, Japan. It will debut at Houston Quilt Market *Crikey* did you know that is only 5 weeks away?
I need to go and sew.
