Oops, wrong season!
But things have definitely calmed down in the Painted Quilt household.
Why, you might ask?
Well, the package containing the line drawings and instructions for my first fabric line arrived in New York City on Wednesday morning, less than 24 hours after they were picked up here by Fed Ex on Tuesday. I received a phone call on Thursday to tell me that everything was great and that they will now go "into production". I'm not quite sure what that means but the Creative Director told me that they will have something for me to see and approve this week sometime.
To answer your questions with regards to when it will be available, I did ask and was told that they will be ready to ship to shops in April of 2016. There are a lot of steps and procedures to go through from the designing stage to the actual production of the finished product and because this is all a new learning experience for me, I'll be sure to fill you all in as I am made aware of what's happening.
As you can well imagine, it's all quite exciting and very overwhelming!
It looks like it's going to be another beautiful day here in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia after a long, hard winter with waaaaay too much snow. It's all gone now and even though the weather has remained on the cool-ish side, it only took about a week or so for it all to melt away.
Yesterday Mr. Painted Quilt, Ollie and I spent about two hours outside doing some much needed yard work. Three trailer loads of leaves were raked out of the flower beds and there's still lots more to go, but the main beds are done.
The tulips and daffodils are about 6" high and many perennials are waking up and breaking ground after their long winter nap.
It's such a beautiful time of year.
