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?
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!
While I'm never entirely thrilled for the end of the 'lazy' time of year, I must admit - my brain has come to welcome the swish of a broom that fall brings for clearing out summer's cobwebs. The time has arrived for organizing, tidying and finishing up - and I'm ready! Before Fall officially swoops … Continue reading Summertime’s Big Finish
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!
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
As decorating goes - I can't say I've ever been stellar at it. I tend to stumble upon things I like; bits and pieces really. I always feel a bit like I love odd things that are mostly random, don't often go together, yet possess an intangible meaning I can't always explain. Like umbrellas, for … Continue reading Imaginary Home Decor of a Lousy Decorator, and a new Serendipitously Harmonizing Quilt (and yes, a kit!)
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
Even though you probably didn't notice - I took a little break over the holidays. In part, because it recent years I've put off my Christmas shopping until closer (read: dangerously close) to Christmas, so I had lots of shopping to do! But also because I think the holidays are a time to regroup, reset … Continue reading All I Need is Love…and a Little Sewing Time
Let's face it: Everybody loves a good full collection fabric bundle. We love the ease of not even having to think about assembling which fabrics we want to use for our quilt projects, leaning instead upon our favorite AMAZING designers to coordinate collections that look all matchy-matchy from the start, full of individual … Continue reading Have Scraps? Need Scraps!
What do you think of when you hear the word 'Tuppence?' While I'm not entirely sure if it's a word that's still used in present day England, tuppence is an old word that means two pence or, in American terms, two pennies. That said, Tuppence, for me, has a magical meaning too. Pennies aside, one of … Continue reading Pennies, Memory-Sparked Singing and a Brave Girl Project
