As we enter into August, many of us begin to feel the end of summer
approaching. Starting in September, the kids go back to school, the
weather starts to cool off, and the number of family vacations dwindle
down. Because we here at Connecting Threads aren't quite ready for
summer to be over, we are offering up a fun giveaway with some of our
favorite bright and cheery items.
Bright, Cheery, Simple, Fast, Fat Quarter Friendly, Quilt-as-you-go, all describe my Gifty Galore project, Fresh Blooms Placemats, from Gudrun Erla’s Book, Fast & Furious Family.
everyone, my name is Kimberly Purdy, and my company Lilac Cottage
Designs is a new independent designer with Connecting Threads. The
picture is of one of my designs, the Sleep Mat II. It’s a blanket, mat,
and pillow all in one. It rolls up so that you can quickly take it
with you for daycare or sleepovers.
Hello my name is Sue and I have a sewing problem. I just don't have enough room to store everything! I've tried not keeping scraps – but that's just wrong – so I keep scraps. I've tried to use up my stash. The only problem is I keep buying more. I've tried not buying more fabric unless it was for the project I was working on at the time, but there's always the next project in my mind and when you see the perfect fabric, well, you know, no fabric left behind!
I thought it would be really fun to give you a 'behind the scenes' peek
to show you just how much fun it is working here at Connecting Threads.
As you know I am a Fabric Designer, but I'm also the Art Director for
our photo shoots for the catalog and web images. I develop the theme of
the shoots, plan the locations, gather props and direct our photography
department on angles and desired results. Our photographers are
awesome! I work closely with Sarah & Amy, and we three work hard at
creating really beautiful images for you to see!
