Good morning everyone and welcome to the first of three Blue Morning Mondays! My name is Sally Griswold and I’m the better half of Iron Orchid Designs aka IOD. My sister (the other half) might disagree but one who does not participate in blog posts does not get to object.
Let me just say that I cannot tell you how excited we are to be designing for Clothworks! It’s been a dream of ours for a long time to see our designs in fabric but we never imagined it would be with such a stellar company as Clothworks! Blue Morning is our very first line with Clothworks, but we have been designing in the paper crafting world for many years now and are blessed to also have a line of home decor and art in stores like Bed Bath and Beyond, Kohls, Kirklands, Homegoods, Target etc. If you want to know more about us, feel free to read our bio and see our other collections here, or take a jaunt over to our humble little home on the web here.
On to what you really came here for and that is FABRIC LOVE! To start off our Blue Morning Mondays we have a very special little project as well as a way you can get your hot little hands on some Blue Morning yourselves!
First, the project. I guess you might call this a guest with guests post? I have a couple of friends who are amazingly talented and I wanted to include them in the fun. Besides, many hands make for light work right?
I give you my daughter Phoebe wearing the “Flouncy Tiered Dress” over the “Sweet Petticoat Slip Dress” designed by my friend Kate of Monkey’s Bug Patterns and sewn by another talented friend, Jennifer of Alli’s Auntie Designs. The adorable hat is Jennifer’s addition. Please take a minute to go check out their designs. They’re just absolute loveliness!
As promised, a chance to secure for yourself some of the fabric loveliness you see above. We are giving away 2 sets of the whole Blue Morning line in fat quarters!
Here is how it works. First, post a comment here (on this blog post) letting us know what fun project you plan to make with the Blue Morning fabric if you win or what you love about the fabric. That counts as one enry. To enter again, go like IOD’s facebook page and come back here and post again letting us know you “liked” the page. That counts as another entry… ( each comment is an entry, you’re getting the picture!) to make sure the contest is fair and to differentiate between entries and other comments, please post ENTRY before any qualifying comment. If you just want to comment for fun feel free too, just don’t put ENTRY. For a third entry head on over to the IOD blog and leave a comment there as well! Those comments will be counted seperately for the second set of fat quarters! So many chances to win, we will announce the winners on our next “Blue Morning Monday” post on February 18th! God blessings to you all this week!
