February 26: Buffalo Bill's Birthday

William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody (February 26, 1846 – January 10, 1917) was an American soldier, bison hunter and showman. He was one of the most colorful figures of the American Old West, and famous for Buffalo Bill's Wild West Congress, Rough Riders of the World.

Recently, Windham Fabrics collaborated with the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming, to produce a line of designer-quality fabrics. (I'd like to add just for me, but I'm sure others have found and fallen in love with the gorgeous pieces!) If you ever get the chance to visit the BBHC, do not pass up the opportunity. It's first-rate. Here's a look at a few of those fabrics..... Love the words, lassos, and reproduction of Wild West show posters. I'm currently working on handbag designs to showcase these fabulous prints. Stay tuned!

I'm sick ('tis the season, right?), and truly feel for those who don't have someone to make a medicine run. Look at what else my wonderful husband brought home? Magazines for when one feels too lousy to do much else. Does he know me, or what? More soon....
