So all about Monday..

I hardly know where to start when it comes to working on the strike offs. Holly and I spent the whole day going through all the fabrics. There were between 2 and 4 pieces for each print to review. Some had differences so subtle I couldn't even tell what they were. Holly was patient and showed me how to use the charts to evaluate each print. Then we laid out each of the prints by color and reevaluated in reference to the rest of the same color. That fruit print.. needs work but it's there to see how it looks with the rest of the yellows. Then we looked at the results in reference to the other prints.

Pinks turn into reds then to blue.. you can see we were still evaluating one of those blues. I don't remember which one we chose, they were both so good.


I have a thing about fabrics with white backgrounds and these whites... amazing. And my yellow dot on white, I'm weeping over how much I love it. I need a bolt, I never want to run out. And you know that's just the start. Holly is a genius and she took my little wad of ideas and turned it into something I think is pretty wonderful.

Then after a day of work, we celebrated with some carefully chosen perfectly matched candies. Isn't that what everyone does?


I hope you like what you see here! The sales period for PamKittyMorning is in its final weeks and soon we'll be sending our print orders to the mill! From then on it's the waiting game!

Bwahahaha...now you understand the agony we shop owners go through when we have to view 63 SKU's and try and decide what to buy and what to pass on. Agony I tell you. Sometimes it's just easier to take the whole kit and caboodle! I'm so glad you and Holly are picky and I know they will each be fabulous...all 63 of them. Thanks to both of you for your hard work and dedication to perfection! I can't wait until they arrive.

I love it!! I would have a hard time picking and choosing, I guess that is why I ordered the whole line.
Maybe we could have you do a guest appearance.
