i am not a native ohioan. but, i have lived here for about 20 years now! time flies. but, i digress. after living here for that long, it is amazing how much i do NOT know about this state... and one of them was the artwork of charley harper (read about him here.) that is until a week ago when fabric based on his artwork arrive in our shop. i wasn't sure if i would like it or not based on pictures... but, it is lovely. and fun!
|ok, that bear just looks great with the charley harper pillow, right?|
i spent the day yesterday designing a pillow covering with the bank swallow blue fabric. i think it turned out wonderful! i am going to work on some additional ones today also using the bank swallow fall with has beautiful red, yellow, and grays. i used a linen background with a simple off-white/black polka-dot. the back is envelope style using a blue crossweave fabric. i can't wait to start on the next one! you can see the whole line of fabrics on the birch website.

my daughter and her husband arrived last night at 2am (after driving 9 hours from south carolina!) for the holidays... i added the new pillow to their bed. loving it!
i hope you all have a wonderful thanksgiving, hanukkah, and start to the christmas season! what a wonderful time of the year! (our farm is covered in snow already... i am stressing because it sure feels like we should be opening christmas presents and sitting by the fire... and my presents are not even near ready! yikes!)
