Happy Monday!

Hi Everyone,

Black + White from Cotton + Steel came we still have a bit left after pre-orders. Lots of typewriters because I was smart and bought more of those :) So get it while you can.


This weekend was my first garment sewing class for Fashion You. It was so much fun and everyone left with a finished Flora Top. We customized them to everyone's preferences so no two are alike.... even though three of the four bought the same fabric to make them with (on separate days and times, and they didn't know each other).


They were all pretty proud that they sewed knits without a hitch and could wear them home. They must have liked it because they all bought more fabric to make more tops :)

Yesterday I got started on my Outlander Craft Swap in earnest... and you all know how much I love to paper piece.... NOT!

But I do like the way the Thistle came out... it will be pieced into a useful object LOL

Have a super Monday!

Happy Fabric Friday a Giveaway and Update

Hi Everyone,

We are giving away this gorgeous bundle of Sara's Fantasia over on Maureen's blog... head over there to enter.

If you have looked at the website in the last day or so you might have noticed a little something different over there.  We have a new look. What do you think of it? I am so excited because I have pretty much hated the design of the website since the beginning.


 The navigation is now at the top but once you are inside things are arranged pretty much the same as they were. The pictures are bigger and way better. The best part is it shows much better on mobile devices.

Here is where you find the shop link, a link to the newest stuff, a pre-order page that has a list of all the items we are currently taking pre-orders for.... and the usual stuff like the about and contact page.

I like being able to put pictures with the What's New? page especially. It looks like this:


Anyway... hope you will go take a test flight.

Speaking of new stuff: (don't tell but Black + White is on the way Today or Monday it should be here)

I can't believe how early all of the Christmas stuff is coming out but we do have some totally adorable Christmas fabric in...just think of what a great start you can get on your holiday sewing!

It is hard to pick a favorite but... Festive Forest is right up there:

Those foxes!!!! Oh my goodness!

This is All the Trimmings from Michael Miller. The lovebirds...so stinkin' cute!


Then I couldn't resist this Reindeer fabric... Festive


And this fun one with an advent calendar panel called Wonderland

The old fashioned cars loaded with Christmas Trees really hooked me.

Keep an eye on this spot some awesome is coming soon.

Have a great weekend.

Some new pretties... Lizzy House Butterflies and Sara Lawson Fantasia

We were so busy getting orders out for the sale that I hadn't had time until now to post about these two new collections that came in...

Lizzy's Butterflies in beautiful new colors. It is hard for me to choose a favorite... Maybe the Magenta... or the Emerald...

And we also have this sweet collection from Sara Lawson for Art Gallery... Fantasia. I have to admit I wasn't sure about this one. I thought it would be juvenile but it isn't. It is very beautiful and subtle. There are a couple prints in this of which I would love to make a blouse. This collection coordinates well with Morning Walk too...


It's raining here... yeah!

Happy Tuesday!

I will be posting this as a tutorial on the blog int he next couple weeks so stay tuned.
