Yes, it is true.
It has been a week packed full of so many different emotions, let me take you back to the beginning of the week. Monday I was sitting at home knowing it was going to be a big day and hoping the UPS tracking system was correct, the vision you see is me sitting on the couch stitching away and watching out the window for any van, truck, car or horse & cart that might pull up out the front.
It was similar to watching grass grow.....I kept stitching - what else is a girl to do?
About 3.40 a white van stopped and reversed up the driveway, this is it! I believe I asked my friends to hold me up incase I faint. Remember to breathe Natalie.
The reason for the excitement was this little box, FULL of fabric - not any kind of fabric.
It was mine.
My Woodland has arrived.
Clearly no one wanted that box to pop open until it reached the destination. I paused for a moment and snapped a picture to remember what it looked like, squealed, danced and rang Mum & Isabelle so we could all squeal together. The box wasn't even open at that stage, funny if it was just filled with cardboard.
So in the excitement of the moment I rememered to breathe and ripped open the box and there is was, the fabric I designed. I was lost for words for a couple of seconds.
It was worth the wait, I ADORE!!
I have spent the last day or so with Woodland - starring at the selvage, fondling and playing, folding, cutting and beginning to create something special for Lecien (and you) from all this goodness and occasionally feeling a little overwelmed by the moment.
Wow, that's me there on the edge.
One of my favorite little ones in the collection.....I have not seen the scrap basket looking this sweet, how can I not take a photo?
And right now, this is what is waiting for me in the studio. Lots of squares, lots of sewing.
For now this is your little taste of Woodland, of things to come - me designing beautiful fabric so you can play with it too. When I get the green light I will share the line in full and explain how it all came to be, the story behind Woodland.
Lecien & I = Perfect match.
I have some sewing to do now,
PS. Promise to draw a winner in the morning for the Mush-roomie Flip patterns, I have not forgotten - just been side tracked ogling fabric, forgive me - please?
