So I met this client as a referral from another (love those!) and right away she told me that she likes to find her own fabric. She is a bit of a stickler for the perfect one & knows it when she sees it. I explained that I was the same way, but would take a stab at it just in case she couldn't find what she was looking for. So of course the challenge was on. Bring it on baby...bring...it...on!
We were working around an exquisite rug with some serious color, so I brought her a pile of swatches...eh, nothing earth shattering. I went through all of my books. Determined not to give up, I thought, let me step away from the fabrics for a day & refocus. "Step awaaaay from the fabrics".
So a new day came & I thought I am going to go through all of my books again..there has got to be one that works. And so it happened...was it wishful thinking that for some crazy reason the absolute perfect fabric jumped out at me? I'll never know, but I brought a few other hopefuls, including this new one. When we laid them out on the rug, wouldn't you know, we had found it! My client, who happens to be very animated, gasped..I got my usual chills (which is my inner measure when I love something) & we spent a minute or two hitting eachother in the shoulder...we were both excited!
