Projects at the studio....

I thought I'd try to update on a more regular basis by doing shorter posts to start with until I can get in the swing of posting regularly. Thank you for your patience with me while I create a habit of posting.

Today I am continuing to work on Stationary London Shades (fabric & trim shown here)

I will be starting on some Casual Swag Valances as well (fabrics & trim to the right).

This week at the studio - 8/3/09

I am truly blessed to wonderful clients and a full calendar of jobs! Trying hard to balance all the things one must due as a small business person these days - sorry my blog updates seem to go to the back burner when I'm swamped....working to do better at that.

Wanted to share with you a few pictures of some boxed cushions which have been completed and are currently in their new homes - both were for young "pre-teen" girl rooms! I think they are both so fun and will grow with the young ladies!

Here's what's on my worktable for the next few weeks - I have about 5 jobs that have gotten backlogged either from fabric or trim being backorder or other decisions that needed to be completed before the beginning of the fabrication process - so I'm working hard to meet the deadlines and produce the top quality that my business is known for!!

Sent out panels and pillows yesterday PM on a job - beautiful patterned silk with lead edge flat braid inset & 2 14x20 lumbar pillows w/self-cording!!! Here are a few pics in my studio.

Starting yesterday I'm working on 3 arched boxed pleated valances, 1 staight box pleated valance and pinch pleated panels for a job going out Friday! We had to wait on trim for 2 of the valances - finially came in a few weeks ago!

Also starting this week I have a job with 4 pair of multiple width panels and an arched cornice with swag and cascade are the fabrics on this job - still waiting on trim for cornice.

Also, I have 6 Hobbled roman shades to complete - these will be motorized! Excited about this job! Will definitely share photos when job is installed! Here's the fabric...

Guess that's the scoop from the studio for now! I'll do my best to keep communicating progress as it occurs! Looking forward to being buried in fabric for a few weeks!
