i have to say i like the tiny chill in the air this morning - hell yes ! sorry, i love fall and september is "in theory" my favorite month of the year. i just wish it were more "fall-ish" like back in the bay area when i was a kid. leaves blowing off the trees, sweaters on - school starting :) my kids have been in school for months poor things. through 90 degree weather. i think eventually we'll move - when our kids are done with school here. someplace that really knows how to do mountains and mist and FALL! like oregon or washington .. or hawaii strangely.
ok enough rambling about weather. i'm not sure anyone reads the blog anymore anyway, blogs are so hopelessly out of fashion these days. the spring collection. i am almost done with sewing it and it nearly killed me, trying to finish, take pictures, edit it. learn how to use a new computer program so i could make a hard copy catalogue etc etc. all of this going on while one kid starts high school and another adds music class to her curriculum (percussion, yes !). on top of that our house is finally undergoing some serious cosmetic changes that are long overdue. think i have a cute house? i do! did you know the picture window in the living room has been cracked in two for FOUR years? as of yesterday we have a new window and i love it. the house is being painted soon - white washed with grey shutters and a burnt orange front door. very fairy tale cottage .. dream come true there. there's more but i won't bore you with home updates.
spring. i'd like to send out an online look book to everyone interested in pre-ordering. there you will find the complete collection along with retail prices. a 10% discount is offered to customers placing pre-orders. i should have this ready in about a week or 2. i think i'm going to take a little break from showing spring .. we're headed out of town to the blue lakes to camp and decompress. i'd like to switch gears soon and make some of the fall pieces i've been dreaming about. 85 degrees outside and i dream of silk blouses under soft wool sweaters, tights, new oxfords all laced up. it'll come.
