Preview: Denyse Schmidt’s Hope Valley




Hooray! As hinted at earlier this year, Denyse Schmidt‘s upcoming collection for FreeSpirit, Hope Valley, is inspired by homesteading, fresh starts, and pioneering.

I just love everything about this collection: the colors, the vintage feel, the sweet, happy florals and simple small-scale coordinates. The images above from Denyse give you a good idea of the colorways (Fiesta, top; Piney Woods, middle; New Day, bottom) and relative scale. Release date is later this year, which gives me plenty of time to save up so I can buy tons. I will let you know when I hear of a more precise date.

    Thrills! I did a Katie Jump Rope project and I’m currently working with the elusive and wildly popular Flea Market Fancy that I’ve hoarded.
