a big thankyou goes out to all of the wonderful customers i have had this holiday season!! 2008 has been the best year yet for littlelegwarmers, and i couldn't have done i without such great supporters, friends, coworkers, and family who have really helped me so much along the way. thanks to you, littlelegwarmers has sold 10 quilts in just 3 weeks!
after the holidays come to a close for 2008, i will be making a trip to the Ronald Mcdonald house to make a donation of a few quilts- they send families home with one after their stay. the way this season has gone so far, i may not have too many left! but you can be sure i will donate at least two or three.
i'm very much looking forward to getting started on creating my winter/spring 2009 collection... i have been collecting some new fabrics and new design ideas. i've been furiously scribbling it all down in my notebook and explaining it to my mother over the phone, rambling off ideas and asking for suggestions. if there is something you would like to see, please feel free to leave me a comment! ideas on pattern, color, anything!
the winter/spring 09 collection will feature fabrics from some of my favorite designers, including: heather ross, amy butler, kaffee fassett, denise schmidt, and anna maria horner. it is also going to include (but is not limited to): interesting and slightly "off" colors (magenta, mustard, brown), muted and "swampy" colors (grey, aqua, cream, olive), somewhat "primary" colors (orange, red, blue)... also, i will be introducing a line of mini quilts, which can either be used as doll quilts or wall hangings (framed or hung as is). stay tuned, because i will be posting as i make some progress...
