Coming Soon: A New Pattern!

Design Updates, In the Workroomcarla macklinComment

Faithful readers, please don't think we have fallen off the face of the earth.  The last month has been extremely hectic for both of us gals here at Clever Charlotte.  I am in the process of a move to a new home in the adjacent community, though still within walking distance to Erin.  Erin has been lawyering around town to keep her cerebral juices flowing.  Every spare creative moment we've had we are putting towards our newest pattern, due out in a couple weeks.   Yes!  A new pattern for summertime!Well.... it's not exactly true that ALL of my creative moments are directed to the new release.  Of course I've had a few little home-decor projects for the new digs, mostly for the girls' rooms. I found matching upholstered headboards at our local thrift store and I'm embarrassed to say how little I paid.  Combined with free leftover pink ikat fabric from my mother's stash, I rid the world of a little more chintz.

"But what about matching curtains?" you ask?  Here they are:

I had so much fun at my first attempt at grommet-top curtains.  I found the hardware at Rowley.  All you need are the grommets, a little plastic setter, and a mallet.  Easy peasy!

OK.  Back to work on the new pattern.  No more home-dec projects until the release!
