Furry Friday (and a Sneak Peek!)

New fabric has arrived! I'm so excited to share this first peek at Cuzco (pronounced Kooz—Koh). More on the inspiration for this collection soon, but for now, spread the wings of your imagination and venture to the mountains and valleys of Peru...
And here's some Friday Fur!
Window Washing 101
Mouse-eye View
Have a beautiful weekend!

  6. Love the photo of the kitties watching the window-washing -- I can just imagine their furry heads bobbing and weaving as the paper towel moves over the glass!

  8. Cuzco is wonderful! Can't wait to see some in person!

    I had to laugh at your kitty pic! My DD has a cat, Rocky, who might well be cousins to your furry friends. From behind, there's no telling a difference! Rocky has personality plus, and is curious beyond belief, so I can totally see him watching the thrilling activity of window washing! lol

  28. I'm so excited about the Cuzco. My son's girlfriend was adopted from Cuzco, so this will be very cool for her - I'm thinking matching duffle bag and makeup case. There is nothing that can match the arrival of new Kate Spain fabric - soft, crisp, and colorful. Somehow no other fabrics seem to measure up.

    I have inherited kitty Fat Samantha from that same son - she is a good buddy but gets bored when I sit sewing too long. SHE IS THE REASON for window washing at our house - paws and nose!!!

  29. Love the fabric! The cats are cute too.
    When is this amazing fabric due to come out?

    ReplyDelete
  30. What a great sneak! (Were you watching Emperors New Groove at the time?)=D

  41. Hi Kate
    I love the fabric and I just l-o-v-e Cuzco.
    The food, the people, the temples, the colour, the history well everything really. I walked in the Andes up to 16.000 feet then joined the Inca Trail - the only way to Machu Picchu through the Sun Gate. Wow....then early morning mist before the tourist trains arrive...sacred spot...so can wait to see the designs....
    sitting in the Park in the middle of the square....LOL Susan

  44. The fabrics looks like it would also go well with Good Fortune--is that right, or just the computer monitor? Very lovely, as usual.

    ReplyDelete

  47. I really like your Cuzco line. The yellows, red/pink and oranges in the background are gorgeous. Terrain is still one of my very favorite fabrics and I'm thinking Cuzco is going to be right up there.

  52. Perfect timing, I just used up all of my fabric from Terrain and Good Fortune. Needed a Kate Spain fix for sure.
    The kitties are so cute. I think they wanted to wash windows.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh I love this new line! When you say Cuzco I think of the movie "The Emperors New Groove". Such a cute movie and such a great name for this line of fabric!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Just when I thought I could take my Terrain and Good Fortune stash and start the quilt, along comes Cuzco. I'll have to wait so I can add some of it to the quilt. Love the colors and the peacock. If I'm not mistaken my local quilt shop will be carrying it.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love the peacock! Oh I can't wait for this one ... wonder if the colors will play well with the Secret Garden fabrics I've been hoarding .... oooooh

    ReplyDelete
