Tilda, Teacups & a Lefty-Girl-Imagination Running Amok

I'm tickled to share a recent finish in the form of a new wall quilt for my studio. The pattern is designed by my sweet friend Robin Pickens and hers looks like this: The above represents the cover photo for English Breakfast, featuring Robin's next collection for Moda fabrics called Cottage Bleu, shipping to shops … Continue reading Tilda, Teacups & a Lefty-Girl-Imagination Running Amok

Fabric Curator as a job description. That’s a thing, right?

Okay, so maybe it sounds like a made up name for someone who has a thing for pulling together a whole bunch of fabrics that all somehow work together in a quilt, but I feel like if I'm anything lately, it's that - a Fabric Curator. Early this summer, as explained in my previous post, … Continue reading Fabric Curator as a job description. That’s a thing, right?

Summertime 2019 Projects Here I Come!

Who's a crazy hermit/shop girl who's just finished cutting 6,336 - 5" squares? Two hands way, way up! Well, okay, so really Sophie Just helped with the showing off part, which is a fine job for her! The reality is that I have always loved to create kits and bundles, almost as much as I … Continue reading Summertime 2019 Projects Here I Come!

Oh, the Bundles We Grow!

Well, it's officially July - and the Summertime livin' is still easy...except now I'm filling it up with more sewing projects! On the heals of my recent introduction of our newest Happy Scrappy Stack additions in the shop - I wonder if it's obvious enough that I kind of have a thing for assembling fabrics … Continue reading Oh, the Bundles We Grow!

New Happy Scrappy Bundles, a Simple Sew Along & Summertime vs Summer

Summertiiiime...and the livin' is eeeeasy. When I think of summertime, not 'summer' but 'Summertime' (because I think there's a difference), I always think of that song; and I think of hot days, lemonade stands, and sprinklers. Nowadays, I still fee like summertime should be as easy and carefree, bust when we're grown ups, there's no … Continue reading New Happy Scrappy Bundles, a Simple Sew Along & Summertime vs Summer

Painted Gardens and a Springy Serendipity Sandbox-Style Sewing Project

The long and short of it is that Spring gets me every time. By 'gets' - I mean that more than any other time of the year, Spring inspires me to whip up something great; something adventurous and cheery; bright and sunny; joyful and quite obviously - Springy. So when miraculously at Fall Quilt Market 2017, I … Continue reading Painted Gardens and a Springy Serendipity Sandbox-Style Sewing Project

Bad Hair Days, Empty Nesting and New Fulfilling Endeavors

Back in what sometimes feels like the olden days, when my family was young and growing, I remember feeling like there was always tons of planning and organizing going on. In those days, we went the grocery store once a week with a detailed list. We organized that list by section from back of the … Continue reading Bad Hair Days, Empty Nesting and New Fulfilling Endeavors

“The Universe Does this Thing…

...where it aligns you with people, things and situations that match the energy you put out. The more you improve yourself and raise your vibration, the more you will see things that are beneficial to your well being." No one seems to know who actually said the above, most magically thoughtful, words (please speak up … Continue reading “The Universe Does this Thing…

Things I like, A New Bundle, and Staying on Track

It's Tuesday. I like Tuesdays. For starters, I like them most because it means Monday is behind me (which often means I'm at least somewhat caught up after the weekend) and I still have the whole week to accomplish things. It's also January and I like Januarys for the exact same reasons I like Tuesdays, except … Continue reading Things I like, A New Bundle, and Staying on Track

And Sometimes You’re in the Game with Both Feet…

...running with the wind at your back and the road ahead is straight and long, at least for the moment! You may remember last week's post when I shamefully shared that I had just not managed to get my Be My Neighbor sew along block finished in time to for my Monday post, in time … Continue reading And Sometimes You’re in the Game with Both Feet…
