A Little Tease
You've heard of Christmas in July? Let's call this Christmas in March. I'm such a trendsetter. Watch, this is going to be huge. Retailers everywhere are going to jump all over this bandwagon.
I've been working with Steve's cousin Ann Marie Cunningham for probably two years now on Christmas fabric. That's not entirely true. Ann Marie did all the hard work (Draw this! Draw that! Make it bigger/smaller/wider/thinner...) within weeks of agreeing to let me drive her crazy. I've been procrastinating on my part of the bargain, which to my utter amazement, has not moved the project forward in the least. Until now. I finally have my fabric proofs in my hands, and I am beyond thrilled with the way it turned out. Except that I totally missed Christmas. Hence my brilliant marketing scheme.
There will be patchwork patterns for a tree skirt and table runner using the triangular patches featuring Ann Marie's awesome designs. And, soon after that, many of the same motifs will be rendered in 4" squares for you to patch together for all kinds of wonderful projects. Please imagine me hard at work at the sewing machine making large, triangle, log-cabiny blocks with one hand while writing and illustrating the patterns with the other. OK, maybe Christmas in April?
We're calling the line "Merry Merry." It will only be available at AmiSimms.com. To give me a thumbs up click here. That will automatically put your email address in a file so that you will be the first to know when the fabric is available for purchase. Plus it will encourage me (or fill me with guilt) depending on how far along I am with my work when you click.
