March 11 - Fairytale Florals Pre-Order Closes
March 23 - Home of the Brave/Swim Round Opens
Looking ahead - April Flash Round!
The printer's holiday "pause" in February is a bit of a drag - BUT they're back in business, so we're finally getting back on track with Tessellation Wars Pt2. Hoping to have that here in TX for me to cut and ship in the next couple weeks (fingers crossed). Retail is still up in the air for this round, and we'll make the call on a date once the fabric gets in.
In other news, Fairytale Florals will be closing on March 11. Just about a week left to get in any orders for these floral beauties, which you can now get in woven and french terry, as well as cotton lycra knit. Just made my first clothing item for Baby H out of woven, and I'm seriously digging it. I've been meaning to share pictures of the 2 tiny dresses and bloomers I have from this round, someone remind me to do that this week.
This will be the shortest turnaround between rounds so far; Home of the Brave/Swim Round opens Monday, March 23 [**edit - no longer March 19**]. Strike offs are looking like they might be a little late, but we'll get them to our team to be sewn up asap! Amanda and I will even be trying our hands at swim. I'm not optimistic, but I promise I'll still share the hot mess that will be my swimsuit.
I guess now is as good a time as any (although we're looking ahead to April with this news) to announce that we'll be running a Breakfast at Tiffany's flash round! Baby girl's name may or may not be partly inspired by this book/movie, so needless to say, I'm excited for this one.
We're working on the designs for "Unnamed Harry Potter Rd6" as we speak! Hoping to have something to show for it in the next few days, so be on the lookout for a new album with previews! We lovelovelove the artwork for this round, and we're hoping you love it too.
Thanks for reading our first edition of EHF Happenings! Thinking we should come up with a fun name for this. "The Monthly Prophet" maybe. Too much?? If you have any ideas, I'm all ears! We'll chat again in April!
