Welcome to my world of RUSH!
So by now you have visited with my most amazing project designers today, and there will be no surprise to me that they will all be rushing to see what you have got to say about their amazing projects.
That is what we do, we continue to cheer them on from the very first day to the last. You do it because you lift someone else’s heart the way we have lifted yours. As I keep saying, it pays to be a cheerleader.
And look who shares my day! Please cheer for them. It is never easy to be on the same day as me, is it ladies? There are a few of you that I just know will have my heart rushing.
Tuesday, September 30
Carol, that other lady, always manages to keep us all together and constantly cheers from beginning to END. Pay attention future cheerleaders, be a cheerleader now, never ever be late, keep creating and raising your BAR. That is what we are looking for, more Carols. So Carol, thank you! You matter.
Now what do I have in store for YOU?
Let’s see. From the moment I spoke with STUDIO E, I just knew this man would keep my heart pounding. He has had me in a state of rush for months! (And here is a shocker, I still like him.)
So what did I want to design?
It helps to have some java in my veins, and as much as I love my Keurig, on occasion I love my Bodum. Guatemala has been my favorite ground coffee for this French Press.
What drove me crazy was, after the first cup was poured, the rest is cold.
So I created a java jacket that has a pillow sleeve inside filled with 100 % goose down. This fabric matches our home, my kitchen and speaks to me, even with its sweet red ruffle. Yep, that was my very first design.
Oh, by the way, it keeps my whole pot hot for 2 hours.
Java jacket + Rush Hour = Hot brew
Check that off my list.
Next I needed a cover for my iPhone. I hate cell phones of any kind. I usually leave it at home. I hated the black leather cover it was in, so I created an envelope and it is so compact. It fits perfect in my iPad or iMac Air, or my Tammy even, and it is stylish. Now I don’t mind bringing it along. I don’t use it, but it is with me.
Check that off my list.
I sit outside a lot in the summer and fall on our lovely deck. The problem is pesky bugs. I have my breakfast there each morning and nothing annoys me more than bees and flies snooping in my space. So I designed a new cover using eight different pieces of Rush Hour. They cannot peak and cannot get in. Problem solved, Un Covert, cover in French!
Now check that off my list.
I also have an iPad. I have had so many covers for it, but nothing spoke to me. I needed a theme to match. Will you look here…a large coffee button that was gifted to me. (Love it.) Problem, where to put it?
Problem solved. It fits perfect with the Rush Hour coffee cups, ruffle and handle. (I needed a padded handle, because I am balancing my tray to have breakfast outside and I don’t like making 2 trips.) On the back I stitched “I’m UP” since it is the first gadget that I take with me when I go outside to read what you are all up too.
Check that off my list.
By the way, all of covers were stitched with superior metallic threads. They are perfect for that bit of bling and my machine loves it. It does not break like other metallic threads. I did this one in reds. Thanks to Bob for great threads!
Next I needed a padded cover for my iMac Air. It travels the most with me so I wanted it to be durable and something that would not show wear and tear. This Lettered Rush Hour collection was a perfect choice since it answered my problem of having one that is stylish and functional.
Check that ONE off my list too…
No problem solved here, I just wanted to make another doll. La Modele is a doll I have been making since 1992. I have made her in so many styles it amazes me that I have never tire of her. She looks quite appealing in Rush Hour and looks rather calm. Could be I just wore her out. But wait there is more!
I was not happy with just one padded iMac Cover, I wanted another. Well, what if the other is soiled? Can’t have that can I? So I have a plan B. Check that off my list too, a back up cover for my iMac Air.
And I never need an excuse to make a Tammy bag. The only problem I had was which Rush Hour fabric to choose. I chose 4 different ones. Check the pocket for cups and check that off my list.
I just got off the phone (this would be yesterday) but I am writing this today (yesterday) and you are reading it today. Confused? Let me pour you a cup of coffee…with Mr. President.
We will be working with STUDIO E next year TWICE. Yes 2 more times. A collection for Christmas in July and a collection for next years Wicked. theme.
He was funny. I said ” no more talking till next year.” His comment? “We will see.”
I do like him and I thank him for believing in you and I. Because my sweet ladies, you rocked it on this hop.
You matter, Scott. You matter STUDIO E. And you all matter bunches to me.
Top 2 of our day will be posted later this morning. See you in a bit.
