I thought I would share a little about the inspiration for "Blushing" my newest fabric collection with
When I sat down to design "Blushing" a big part of my inspiration came from Apple blossoms that bloom in this part of the world every spring. I just love these little flowers and after a very long cold winter it's a sure sign that warm weather has finally arrived.
But the other exciting part of the inspiration for this collection was the Languedoc cross. I think it's such a pretty cross and I wanted it to be a part of Blushing. When I married into the Languedoc family years ago my mother-in-law gave me a Languedoc cross pendant - it's something that will always be dear to me. The cross has a long history that dates back to 1165.
I think it adds an 'Old World' charm to this new collection.
I won't see sample yardage for Blushing for months and I know the waiting will not be easy, but I've already started drawing out patterns and I hope to have some digital designs for you soon.
