Egg Update

Hmmm...I'm not sure what to think. There are still only 4 eggs, and nothing is happening. Maya doesn't sit on them anymore, and she won't even sleep in the nest. I'm starting to wonder if she is one of those dead-beat Moms! She's not acting very maternal...and I wonder if the eggs will even hatch now, since they're probably really cold.

Shame on you Maya! I was really looking forward to some baby birds. Oh well...I guess you can't force these things! I have read that Finches are notorious for being bad parents.

Anyway, I have been inspired non-the-less to put birds in my next line of fabric. I know birds have kind of been "done" already, but mine are different. Besides...I have a good reason.
Here's a little sneak peek.


It's definitely a Spring collection...hope you will like it!

Hello Lila,
I really love your style, and eventhough you have birds, flowers and butterflies, you have a unique way of presenting them.
This collection is sure going to be a very nice one too!

Oh my goodness, it is gorgeous. I love the colors, and the bird makes it so elegant. Truly magnificent work. I cannot wait to get my hands on this one.
Did I say I love the colors! Thank you.

This is really good, but then I like paiselys! And it is much, much better than another designer that did some animals with bug eyes...and mushrooms.

Heather said...

Love it, love it, love it! I am sooo into birds...of all kinds. This is a print I would use for my baby girl, not to bright or saturated and prissy enough for any little princess!

Hi Lila-
I am Natalia, the owner of Piece N Quilt.com I just have to tell you that I absolutly love your fabrics. I was so extremly happy when I read that you are from Utah too!

Your fabrics are so adorable and I'm actually getting ready to teach a class at one of my guilds and I've used a bunch of Woodland Bloom in some fun quilts that I've created. I'll have to send you some pictures when I'm all done.

Anyways, thanks for adding my link to your site:)
