Wow. It’s been a bit since I’ve posted. hmmm….summer seems to be getting away with me. I am beginning to work on the specifics of the fall line so color and pattern have been taking over my world. Here is a bit of inspiration for you.
What are your favorite colors and patterns?

I just returned from the fabric store. There’s something magical about wandering through aisles and aisles of satin, organza, and lace.

This weekend I made the trek to my homeland of Tejas. It seems like the moment I crossed the Red River every radio station suddenly became country. I was inspired to share these beautiful things with you today!

I am now fully convinced that inspiration can come from anywhere. I mean anywhere. While standing in the checkout lane of the local Garden Ridge with my mom, my eye was captured by a plastic tub filled with discount bon bons of the most delightful colors.
Now, I’m definately not the type who gets excited or even thinks about babies, but these colors simply begged me to explore childhood fancy. Take a peek at this neopolotan-inspired world I’ve crafted just for you (or your little one).

I’m not sure what’s going on. I just ate a bowl of tomato soup. I hate tomato soup. Plus, I am in serious need of inspiration. Maybe it’s all the crafting madness going on in my living room right now, but these subtle colors just hit the spot today.
