WHEW! Thanks so much for following along on our Storybook Lane tour (part 1, part 2, and part 3) and for all of your encouraging, generous comments. Now, to cap this all off I think we need a contest!
I am giving away some free fabric. Win an entire stack of fat quarters (that’s all 18 prints) All you need to do is leave a comment and tell me who your favorite Storybook Lane character is. I will randomly pick one lucky winner on April 1st at Midnight PST. The winner will receive their prize when Storybook Lane fabric ships (in May).
(Please note: if you are my sister or best friend, you are automatically disqualified.)
I can’t wait to see what you all do with all of this fabric!
In the meantime, I wanted to include a personal note from me: I am busy finalizing patterns, getting my print orders organized and ready, and spending a lot of time talking booth construction with my Dad. This is definitely the part that I was envisioning all those years ago when I started down this path.
Each time I hit a new rung on the ladder though, I find I want to share more of the blood, sweat, and tears that came first, because I think sometimes it’s helpful to hear that part. Some of us need to know that it isn’t all easy or fast. Sometimes, it’s just chipping away steadily for a long time – often so slowly, you can’t really see any progress.
People ask: “How long are you going to keep doing that?” It must be so painful for them to watch. But with hard work and grace, you look up and see that you did make it. Keep chipping. Don’t give up.
Lots of love,
