I've also been sprucing things up here in Monkey Towers/FQ Headquarters. A new lick of blackboard paint, some re-hanging of pics and stuff. It's a lonely office to work in, as the other members of staff are sat in their own personal FQ headquarters in their own houses. It would be awesome cool if we could actually hang out together all day in a hustly bustly studio space surrounded by sewing machines and giant cutting tables. Maybe in a loft somewhere. New York would be nice. It's a bit far for us all to go to work though, and I think we'd be running at some massive losses profit wise with all the travel expenses. Not to mention the carbon footprint with international flights to and from work every week. Oh well. I'll settle for the fabric covered letters above my desk instead and dream of the loft space studio.
I bought those letters from Anthropologie. I was very excited when I saw them. So excited I got a nosebleed. Luckily the ever resourceful Brioni had a tissue, so I shoved that up my nose and all was well again.
Talking of all things Fat Quarterly - there's a giveaway going on for some Saffron Craig fabric. Go check it out, because that stuff is super pricey (but worth it - believe me, it's got a really nice feel to it and the colours are so fresh and crisp and spot on).
And whilst we're on the subject of giveaways... Julie has details of a heap that's going on in blogland right now. Just click on the button below and it'll take you there......
EDIT - I just got an email from the people that do the media for the V&A. This is such a fun tool. You can upload a photo, it analyses the colours and patterns and turns it into a quilt pattern for you. Genius. Potentially useless, but a fun way to spend a few hours.
