(Did you catch Rae's whales in the middle?)
You know, in deciding to put these sets together, I didn't see anything else like it. Which made me bite my nails a bit. It's super cool to be the first to do something... if it works. Would it work? One way to find out. I checked with Spoonflower to be sure they didn't object, and then after I ordered fabric I got lots of messages from designers thanking me for buying their prints. I responded to each designer letting them know that they'd be included in this way-- and was overwhelmed with positive responses. And there've been happy posts and tweets. I love everything about these sets and getting to interact with the designers and share their work. Now that I've done all of the work to get these to market, I'm ready to start sewing them together myself. Is that weird that I didn't feel like I'd earned the sewing time until I'd gotten all of the work done? It's my crafty reward.

I'm off to sew! Thanks so much for your kind e-mails and notes on the mailing list sign-up form. There're a few I've laughed about with A-- particularly the commenter who said "love you guys, but-- less birthing! more crafting!"
