Ann Lauer's Midnight Poppies

Ann Lauer's poppies are back! Her new collection, Midnight Poppies, takes this iconic bloom bigger and better. The collection comes in green/purple and fuchsia/blue colorways. Scroll down to read our interview with Ann and learn more about the fabric line. 

What inspired the Midnight Poppies collection?
I love the showiness of poppies—they’re one of my favorite flowers. I wanted to do them again, but in a different way. We added in the Moonlit Poppies print, which is a really dense floral that we did as a tonal print.

What makes these poppies different?
I love these poppies because they’re realistic with artistic license. They have shading and shadowing that you don’t normally see in an actual flower—they’re prettier than nature!

Tell us about the texture that shows up in this collection.
The background in the large poppy focal print turned out beautifully. It has shaded dots, crisscrossed lines, and an occasional grid. It’s all in there without distracting from the flowers laid on top.

Talk to us about the color palette.
I just love jewel tones. That cobalt blue is gorgeous, and of course I’ve always loved purple. The green hovers between a sage and a lime color. There are four black/white prints in here as well--they range from light to dark, so you can play with just blacks and whites as well.

Can you tell us about some of your favorite prints?
The Mosaic Petals are one of my favorites in the whole collection. It’s a little angular and geometric—not as curvy—and it ties all the colors together. The Daisy Petals print uses that same idea, but in lighter shades, plus black and white.

The Criss-Cross Dot print is a multicolor version of Moonlight Texture. The random lines add a geometric feel. The colors are so deep and rich!

The Stripe combines the poppies with the Mosaic Petals and the Geometric Squares. It can be fussy cut for borders or for blocks.

    Soft Tech Geeks is a chinese underground organisation of computer experts and hackers. We stay discrete in order to prevent the identity of our clients from FEDs and individuals.
    • Hacking really takes the right tools and equipment (Spywares and other necessary softwares).
    Most people really think that a hacker can just breaking into a security system just by browsing through the site.
    But if you really need a hacker we are here for you. We give you full details of our strategy on how we are going to get the job done, then you can decide if we are really or not.


    • We don't ask personal questions about you and we dont give out our personal information.
    We strictly do business and don't expose you or your service to you to anyone.
    That's how discrete we are.

    As long as technology is involved anything can be hacked.
    *Most people want to Hack a target's email I.D, social media websites or apps, smartphones, for many reasons such as husband cheating on wife, girlfriend cheating on boyfriend.
    *if you need to hack a particular organisation so as to sniff, delete, change a particular information or records.
    *as a parent you might need to monitor what your children are doing on social media and on their personal computers or even clone their phones to also hear their calls or see text messages on any app they chatting with, so that they don’t get into trouble.
    *if you want to hack a private domain email account(business email).
    *you want to eraze your name from court’s criminal records, perhaps you might want to Hack into the database of any government agency,
    *you want to spend someone's money by cloning another credit card to their account without bank or the user's notification,
    *some people want to mine bit coin, we can create a platform for you to mine bit coin without having to cheat anyone.
    All these are what we can get done within few hours.

    Fankly speaking, we always give a 100% guarantee on an job we take. Time to complete a job depends on the complication of the job and if we take your job then be rest assured that it will be done, and we give you a 100% assurance that we cover our tracks well enough, so when we do a job its like we were never there. We have also come across FAKE HACKERS claiming they will get the job done in a short time , and sharing testimony of themselves but they are all scams (AVOID THEM).

    We look forward to working for you.
