Donkeys for Christmas?

Hi everyone! I've been toying with some ideas for holiday fabrics and would love your thoughts.

Would you be interested in fabric with donkeys in boots and santa hats for the holidays?

Would you want a coordinating boots-only fabric?

If I get the fabric printed and listed in the store by October would that give you enough time to do your holiday sewing?

For those of you who have purchased my donkey and boots fabric and are familiar with the size, would you want these donkeys to be the same size? smaller? larger?

If you're so inclined I'd love to hear your thoughts. Just leave me a comment. Thanks for your help!!

Urban Circus Giveaway with Red Pepper Quilts

Well I have emerged (kinda) from under my tower of cardboard. My move is complete and I'm nearly done unpacking. My hope is that within a week or two I can post some pics and take you on a proper tour of the house and my studio. Boy, it really takes a long time to get re-organized, doesn't it?!

And in much more exciting news than my moving... Urban Circus is starting to arrive at local quilt stores!!!

A few weeks ago I packed up some fat quarters and sent them winging to Australia to the lovely Rita at Red Pepper Quilts. She whipped up this absolutely precious lap quilt for me. I just love it. And the back with the square strips is equally as cute as the front. Thank you Rita! The quilt will be treasured.

And now for what you've been waiting for! The giveaway!

Rita is giving away fat quarter bundles of Urban Circus to 3 lucky winners. To enter to win one of the bundles just head over to Red Pepper Quilts before noon (AEST) on Friday August 20 and leave a comment on Rita's blog. Good luck!!

Of the 3 fat quarter packs being given away, Lindsay and Charlie at Hawthorne Threads and Cynthia at Fabric Worm are each sponsoring a FQ. And I'm sponsoring the 3rd bundle. Thanks so much to everyone for your enthusiastic response to the Circus!
