Wow...that's all I have to say is WOW!!! I don't even know where to begin on telling you what has been going on in the lives of Olde Green Cupboard! But I'll try!!!...
Our fabric has ("Farmhouse Blooms") arrived here at the house (3 yards of each) that we use to make our samples! Let me tell you.... it was pretty exciting. I was at Camp Blanding when I heard Jack had signed for the box. I hopped in the car and drove into Mandarin to pick it up! I took it out to the retreat and it was wildly received with two thumbs up. The gals were a bit confused because it doesn't look like our normal color palette. However, it was styled with the 50's in mind.... when we were kids living on our country farm in Indiana... when the big floral tablecloths were popular and mom had the coolest aprons she wore... I still remember her wearing them in the kitchen and garden... especially when she was canning!
Then... Heather and I have been working on designing our ad boards...
The red/yellow fabrics are designed for the kitchen. We have a quilted tablecloth (Vicky is sewing on it as I type), apron, hot pads, hot pad towels, casserole carrier, ruffled stool, trivet, and a framed message board! The framed message board is easy to find at your local stores (Hobby Lobby, Target, Walmart, etc.) Simply add our fabric and you have an adorable addition to your kitchen.
Our pink/teal line is so adorable... we just had to redo the laundry room!!! We've designed an ironing board cover with pocket runner to hold your ironing supplies, Laundry Sign, AWESOME rug (made with cotton clothesline and our fabric cut into strips), and then we'll show you how to measure and line ANY basket you may have in your home. Then... we found this awesome clothes sorter that we have recovered and added sweet ruffles around the top. It can even be made specialized for your home with family names (I especially like this... it can be filled with their clean laundry - pop out the bag using the handles) so they can take to their room and put away! Or you can use it for dirty laundry... "lights, darks, towels, etc." Then we have little girls dresses that will be shown at the spring Minneapolis Quilt Market!!! Thanks Pati Violick (Marcus Fabrics) for making them for us!!
So...what do you think?
Oh wait...I'm not finished... We have 3 quilt designs that will be coming out soon too....
