Hi! That didn't take long, because I decided to not look any more for my camera, and just go buy a new one. One that I don't have to share. One that will be guarded with my life.
Now... ( and these are just a few of them) ...here they are...the fabrics I have waited to get forever... they finally came!

(Blah blah blah)

So anyway, I've been sewing up a bunch of stuff.... and going a little crazy, but it's all really fun, and surreal to have my own fabric to work with. Now remember what I said about being kind??? Well I really mean it, because this is REALLY scary! I know some people will hate it, and some will like it. But I can't please the world, I can't even please myself. So please don't hate me if you hate the fabric!

Thanks, Love ya!

Lila

Thanks everyone! You are all being so nice to me, and I really appreciate it! It's O.K. to critique it too, I mean, I didn't really mean to scare you all and make you feel like you had to say something nice or I would have a mental breakdown or something...I'm totally open for advise! But I love you all for being so supportive!

Lindy...I don't know much about iron-on fabrics, but I do know a way to iron on any normal fabric to another one, if that's what you are looking for. Email me and I'll chat with you about it!

jt: I don't have any fabrics in home-dec weight yet, but that's what I want to do, so I'll be pushing for that! Some of Woodland Bloom will be done in flannel, though, which will be fun for fall projects!

Thanks everyone!

Lila,
I don't know why, but this post makes me cry. Just like I cried at your house when I saw all of your fabric for the first time. It's like watching your dreams come true right before my eyes. You have worked so hard and I don't know anyone more deserving than you. You are the best Mom, Wife, Sister, and friend.

I Love you!

Chelsea

I love the fabric! So awesome. Great creations too. What can't you do?! My favorite is the apron. Love it.

Chris said...

The most beautiful fabric I've seen in a long time. I'm glad the world's small nowadays and we'll be able to get your fabric here in Germany as well. Even though we probably have to order it in the USA. Can't wait to get my hands on them. I'm having hundreds of ideas already how I'm going to use it.
