Ray, a drop of golden sun.
My friend Edith took this picture of me at market. Edith is the gorgeous, French mastermind behind Renaissance Ribbons and also behind photos that make me look like a deer. A female deer. No wait female deer don't have antlers. But I do. In the picture. Anyway, she snapped me as I was making notes for our Field Study collection of ribbons which should be ready in time for fall market.
As promised, I am sharing a look at Field Study Fabrics by colorway. I thought the most fun (and already done) way to do that was give you the catalog pages from my Spring brochure. We get very excited about our brochures around here, kinda like the booth only 9"x9" and easier to manage. We also send one out with each shop order while they last (still have a few hundred!) Anyway, the Gypsy colorway is shown above.
And this is the Patina colorway. This collection of quilting cottons has a few punctuations of pale, almost sun-bleached colorations that I don't always include, but they seemed to work this go-round. I know these swatches are still a bit small, but they are showing you the relative scale of all the prints to each other which hopefully is helpful.
And above is the Moonlit colorway. I love this one. Oh, also, all of the swatches that show an * beside them will also be offered as exactly the same color in laminate for a total of 8 laminates. The quilting cottons are set to ship to stores August 7th. Which seems like a million years from now. But it's more like 6 weeks. See- much shorter, really.
If you still wanna see everything just a bit bigger and the rest of the catalogue, click here to download and view the full pdf, which also has my written introduction for Field Study. We've also just created a catalogue page at the website that will let you download and view several past catalogues just for kicks.
Leo, Cash and I would like to say thanks for the warm welcome. If I posted every adorable picture of those two together, the sheer quantity would push cats right off the internet. And we don't push cats.
