Welcome, Bienvenidos, Willkommen, Aloha mai

Ok I am not that worldly, I had to look up all of those languages on line. It does have a nice ring to it though. So, Hi! Welcome to the first post on tulapink.com. If you have made it here then you are either a friend, family or made a wrong turn somewhere. Hopefully you are here because you love my fabrics or at least want to see more of them which is what this is really all about.

Full Moon Forest, my first collection of fabrics for Moda is finally in stores, yay! I am super curious to see what people do with it. I have had my sample yardage for sometime now and couldn’t bring myself to cut into it until yesterday. I spent months waiting for it to come in, thinking up elaborate projects and imagining all kinds of possibilities. At one point I contemplated covering all of the walls in my living room with paisley owls, don’t fret, I reconsidered. Then it came in and I was paralyzed with fear. I kept thinking “What if someday I have children and then they have children and that aqua bunny is the perfect fabric to finish their little summer dresses and I don’t have any left because I made some table cloth for a party 30 years ago that was ruined because someone spilled something on it and now i don’t even know those people and my grandkids have no clothes and…

Well you see where I was going with that. So I gave myself a good mental slap in the face with a splash of cold water and forged ahead, scissors in hand. The pieces are cut and the sewing machine has been unearthed. Now all I need is a little bit of time which may not come until after the holiday rush. You win some you lose some I guess. Until next time…

  3. I am not friend or family. I just love your fabrics. I can’t decide which ones to use in a quilt, and loving owls and your colors, I’m not sure if it will be a baby quilt or not.

    Thanks for some great designs.

  4. Nor am I a friend or family member……..just an admirerer of the amazing designs you create! I am so glad I made the ‘wrong turn’ while surfing. I hope that I get the chance to see these fabrics in person somewhere in Florida. Please let me know if you have them in any stores in my neck of the woods.
