I’m finishing up  boat orders this week – if you’re waiting for one they will all be off by Monday.  Merry Wobblers are preparing to board their boats, raise their sales and depart.

So long Wobblers.

I’m also working on a collection of new Fortuny creatures for their Venice showroom. I stopped by the New York showroom last week and got lots of  beautiful and inspiring fabric to work with.

P.S. If you are in NY or will be before March 30th  there is a wonderful  exhibit at  the  Queen Sofía Spanish Institute curated by  Oscar de la Renta of  of the work of Fortuny y Madrazo  (1871–1949).

    Such happy boats and birds! I’m a bird lover, so am always excited when an e-mail comes from you.

    The Fortuny fabrics look luscious. Will you be able to post the results of this commission?

    Always looking forward, Cyd

  5. I love the sweet personality of the little wobbly birds. They remind me of the wrens that nest in my yard. 🙂
