Well, like I mentioned...we had a conference call with RJR yesterday. We were presented with more oppertunities for designing! It is excitting but at the same time...making us even busier!! Busy is good right? The only problem is we still have meals to make, laundry to do and families to take care of...thank goodness they are supportive. Back to the drawing board.

This week at bmd is a busy one! Last Wednesday we received art work of our next two collections and this week we have to tweek the prints and colors. RJR has had some staffing changes and we have a conference call this week to discuss up coming projects and marketing.
I am working on a project for a "Mom's Program" happening in January at a local Church. I am using Bohemian Rhapsody fabrics and the paisley motif. I have been teaching at this mom's program for the past two years. It is a great time of "crafting", fellowship and learning.
Have a great week!

Last night we had the oppertunity to share our 2nd fabric collection with our friends at Homespun. We gave them a "year in review" and then we explained our concept and fabrics to them. The question and answer period is always my favorite time...great questions last night! It is always interesting to hear what customers think.
Myra and I have been going to Homespun in Langdon since we wrote our first book! We have taught classes on many occasions and since we started designing fabric, Barb (the owner) has always asked us to come and do an "open house" at her shop.
Barb has a great shop and she is a very welcoming and generous person! She has been such a great supporter of ours. She has great displays and of course because Blue meadow was coming, she had a great display of Bohemian Rhapsody. She is also very generous and gave away a bunch of great door prizes. Her Homepsun staff are wonderful too. They are excitted and enthusiastic and we always have a great time. THANKS to our Langdon friends for their hospitatly, support and encouragment. See you again soon.

We have a long list of things to accomplish in the next month. This week we designed and are sewing a quilt featuring "Bohemian Rhapsody" for The Quilter Magazine which will be in the March issue. Next on the list will be a design using the "So You Sew Fun too!" collection for the Quiltmaker. And...the list goes on. As our proposals get approved and slated we will let you know what to watch for and when.
This next week, Wednesday November 8th, we will be visiting Homespun in Langdon ND. We are looking forward to the visit with our Homespun friends, this group of ladies have supported us well and always are encouraging. Thanks to Barb, owner of Homespun!
