OK, let’s start with the crush I have on our UPS guy. It’s kinda like a crush on a senior when you’re a freshman: you don’t even know this person, but you know how he makes you FEEL. Never mind that it’s a different driver every shipment; my crush is on the truck and WHAT HE BRINGS ME.
Today’s delight: Heather Ross’ Far Far Away! Her last collection for the foreseeable future. Her all-in-double-gauze collection for Kokka. The words, “I’m gonna wet my pants” are pretty sure to have escaped my lips, but I know my UPS man will be back despite that particular overshare.
Look at it. Really. I opened the box before I even closed the front door.
Such deliciousness. I’m almost glad I only got six of the nine prints I ordered today–I’m not sure my heart could’ve taken ALL of them at once. I jest of course, hyperbole, but you see my point.
Is anyone else flashing back to their sticker collection when they see this? I can’t be the only one who remembers 1983 so clearly…
Oh, the happy lily pads! Oh, the perfect scale! The colors! I love allll of it.
And this double gauze is delicious. If you’ve never worked with it, double gauze is just what it sounds like: two layers of fine cotton gauze, held together by itty bitty invisible stitches. It’s not sheer, but it is lightweight. It’s not heavy, but it makes the softest quilts. It’s a whole new experience, and if I were trying some for the first time, may I just say: you could do a lot worse than to work with Heather’s prints!
This apricot color I wasn’t so fond of on paper, but in person I think it’s shooting to the top of my list–and I’m not the only one: I’ve sold almost half the bolt already! I have another on order, but Kim wasn’t kidding when she said this collection would sell out quickly. And because of Heather Ross’ non-compete agreement with her former company, Munki Munki, there won’t be another printing. I’m not usually a sky-is-falling-create-scarcity kinda girl, but I’ve totally already secreted away a little bit of this for myself, for when it can’t be gotten later.
Oh, the mattresses!
OK, off to review those suggestions so we can get a giveaway started tomorrow. TWO lucky blog readers will be going home with a chunk of this loveliness!
