I have been waiting for DAYS!!! I got an email from Island Batiks and UPS saying the box would be arriving on Monday, March 10. YAY!! Then, I noticed the box would weigh 10 lbs. Um, how much fabric weighs 10 lbs???? That's a LOT of fabric! Some of my friends estimated between 20 and 30 yards. YARDS of #IslandBatiks Ambassador fabrics!! Some could be revealed today, and others could only be teased until May, when others will see them at Quilt Market.
Of course, this morning, I was supposed to go drop off dance costumes. But I didn't fall asleep until after 6 a.m. and the headache that usually accompanies insomnia has not made this a JUMP for Joy day, even if I wanted to, because this BOX is filled with AWESOME stuff!! I'm quietly celebrating, though.
Outside my door this morning was a box. A nice size box. I picked it up, brought it into the cutting table, and slit the tape carefully.
A letter explaining the program and fabrics, and some packing paper.
So, how much was in the box?? 25 yards PLUS of beautiful fabrics. My mind is spinning with possibilities. Two of the groups are more Holiday themed, and also have metallic accents. What does 25 PLUS yards of Island Batiks look like??
Who wants to come over for a play date?? BUT, you WON'T find these beauties mixed in with my regular fabrics. They are in a special area, and protected until the inspiration hits and I can reveal more. In the meantime, I'm planning, and working with other Island Batik fabrics I've purchased.
Being an Island Batiks Ambassador is already more fun than I had hoped. Thanks again for choosing me, and for letting me play with these collections.
Thanks for visiting!
Okay, one more tease!!
