We just received a HUGE shipment from the lovely folks at Birch Organic Fabrics: Mod Basics 2, Elk Grove, and The Grove Home Decor. 100% organic cotton and printed with low-impact dyes, Birch Fabrics is quickly becoming one of our best-selling lines. And what could be more exciting than ELK PRINTS! Makes me want to hop a plane to the Rockies right this very second. In fact, I'd better get busy making some elk shirts before my July trip to Colorado. What will you be making with these fun new collections?
This honeycomb and bee print is one of my favorites! I'm dying to set up beehives in my backyard. Recently I've noticed a sudden decrease in the number of bees in my yard, and I'm worried that last summer's aerial mosquito spraying may have affected the local bee populations. Without bees, pollination activity decreases and it can affect fruit and vegetable harvests. In fact, I've resorted to hand-pollinating my squash plants because the fruits are not developing. Hopefully next spring I will have some new buzzy friends to add to my menagerie.
