UPS truck= Big Smile, frantic rush to door

I love the UPS guy. He alsmost always brings good things. Except for the few exceptions like when the swimsuit I ordered from Speigel comes and it looks HORRIFIC on me, I'm almost always happy with what he brings me. I don't know his name, but I do know the sound of his truck. When I hear that sound, I drop what I'm doing and run to the door, racing my kids to get there. (They like him too.)
I'm a lot like a dog who salivates when he hears the rustle of the dog food bag, or the cat who comes running into the kitchen whenever she hears the sound of the electric can opener. I'm like the little kid who waits all day for the icecream truck to come to their street...and today I was not dissappointed!

My new fabric collection for Moda, Santorini came today, and now I'm cooking up all sorts of plans for it. Here's a little peek:




Hold that thought...what are these???



Let's just say there are lots of new patterns on their way to the printer soon. Check back soon for more sneak peeks!

Lila,

I just wanted to tell you that your fabrics and patterns are breath taking and timeless. I can't express how beautiful your fabrics are. I become extremely excited and I run to the store when I hear that one of your fabrics are available at a store. Your fabrics are in a class by themselves. Your patterns and fabrics show how elegant and beautiful a woman is by wearing or carrying an item inspired by you.

Thank you for inspiring everyone and giving us the wonderful products you do. Please don't ever stop showing us how creative you are.

Sincerely,

Shannon Margaret

Love love the new line! I just bought some of your Soiree collection to make a quilt. I just started quilting and I was so excited to use the Soiree line. Thanks for your cute fabric patterns and your cute patterns! Keep the ideas coming! I also love "Color Me Mine!" I had no idea that you owned that as well.
