In preparation for QuiltCon, we’re also offering Paper Obsessed as a PRE-ORDER!  Check out crimsontate.com to find exactly what you’ve been dreaming of.  We’re offering bundles and kits as pre-ordered items.  Fabric should arrive in June.  We can hardly wait. Holla!

Paper Obsessed and I’m working on those return letters!

I finally have all of my ducks in a row and am ready to start addressing envelopes to my friends who sent me #PaperObsessed mail about fourteen weeks ago.  Yikes.  I’ve got a long ride to Pasadena, CA.  Let’s cross our fingers my markers don’t run out.  Although, truthfully, I kinda love the marker that is on the edge of drying out.  Those scratchy marks are kinda fun.  See you at QuiltCon?! Look for me and Crimson Tate in booth 504.
