It's time for me to put on my Madam Ambassador hat for Henry Glass & Company, and work on the package of fabrics that arrived this week.
The fabric line is called Far Horizons designed by David Shultz. Click HERE to see the entire line up close on the Henry Glass website. The line is inspired by the colors of Australia, the country David calls home. David made my Country Sunshine pattern, so we have a little bit of a history of commenting on each others work on Instagram. David is very creative, and I was delighted when I learned I would be working with his first fabric line.
I knew in advance from my contact at Henry Glass, that this was going to be my March shipment. I worked with it a bit in EQ software before I decided what I was going to make.
Then this idea came to me. I thought the fabric would look great in my Spoken For pattern. I knew I could do some fussy cutting and make some wonderful blocks. I dug right in with great anticipation to see how the first block turned out. I love it! The pattern is a combination of piecing and applique. I can piece during the day and applique the blocks at night so I can stay awake.
Well I have to tell you my knickers are all in a twist. We watched the last episode of Sanditon last night. So many loose ends! There had better be another season in the works or I will be very, VERY sad. I feel I was left hanging, and completely unsatisfied with the ending. I will have to do some research and see if an author finished Jane Austen's book. It is such a good story and I want it to have a good 'Austenesque' ending.
We are looking forward to a brief rain and snowstorm blowing in tonight. We've had so little weather this winter. I miss a good storm of rain, wind, and snow.
His fabric will be beautiful in "Spoken Without a Word" Lynn! I really like the colors in the line.ReplyDelete
I'm pleased with it so far Paula. It's speaking to me. --LynnDelete
I agree with you on Sanditon. It seems like the makers were gambling there would be another season, though from what I've read that appears unlikely because of low ratings.ReplyDelete
My understanding is the ratings were low in the United Kingdom. I guess we can always make up a better ending! --LynnDelete
As usual your choice and use of the fabrics is perfect. And also the fussy cuts are definitely the work of a Madam Ambassador.ReplyDelete
Thank you Fran. I value your opinion. --LynnDelete
It's looking beautiful! and a few years ago Paul and I watched a show (Granite Flats), and it was really good! Then after the 4th season, the producers decided to not produce it anymore. And it had ended on a cliff-hanger!!! Argh!!! I know your angst!! :-)ReplyDelete
That's disappointing when you find a show you like, and it disappears. --LynnDelete
Love the fabrics Lynn and Spoken For is going to be perfect.....ReplyDelete
Regarding Sanditon, grrr......
Looking forward to when you give us a better view of that quilt. It looks lovely!ReplyDelete
