Yesterday, Spoonflower staff took the afternoon off to enjoy our first annual staff spring picnic. There was a whole pig for pickin’, loads of good food brought by staff (who seem to be a foodie as well as a crafty bunch), and a bouncy house for the kids (and for certain staff members who seem to be a bouncy as well as a foodie, crafty bunch). The staff picnic came up recently on one of our social media spaces and one of you visionary folks made a comment to the effect that, “I’ll bet they’ll have tons of gorgeous quilts to sit on at the Spoonflower staff picnic!” Crickets chirped around the office that day. Sadly, despite sewers wildly outnumbering non-sewers around here, we don’t have a ton of gorgeous quilts lying around for picnicking purposes. Yet.
Plenty of fodder for picnic quilts on our new Pinterest board of Picnic fabrics, though–green clover, blue skies with white clouds, strawberries, ants, grumpy pigs, and butterflies and bugs galore. I don’t know about the rest of the Spoonflower staff but next year, I’m totally eating my picnic on a Spoonflower quilt, not a rented chair!
