Leaving on a Jet Plane…

By the time you read this, I will most likely be deep in the throws of booth setup! I am on my way to Houston Quilt Market and I just wanted to pop in really quick and give you a quick sneak peek….     Introducing ALOHA GIRL…..     We will be posting on INSTAGRAM throughout the show so if you want to see all the happenings, follow us!

A little Sneak & a Peek

  You know when you see fabric that just makes your heart skip a beat?   That is what this is doing for me right now. I know, I know… part of me feels like I can't say that about my own work and I should wait for someone else to say it. But I can't! I also have to admit that this is not always true of every collection or design I do. Sometimes I really like them and think they are good. Sometimes I love them. Sometimes I wish I could have added something more or expressed my vision a bit differently. Sometimes its a combo of all of the above. But sometimes, I dream about them before they get here.  This is one of those times. I have so many more pics to show you but I think it might be…

B&R has hit the streets!

Hope you're not already tired of me talking about this collection but…. BUTTERSCOTCH & ROSE HAS SHIPPED and is arriving in stores as we speak. The timing for this quintessential, classic autumn collection couldn't be better we think. We can imagine a whole slew of projects out of it. What might you make? And even better, we have a kit available for our most popular pattern from this collection, My Log Cabins. Kit contains all you will need for any of the 3 variations in the pattern. The Barn Raising version.   The Birds in Flight version.   The Sparkling Diamonds version. Click here for more info. I will be back tomorrow morning with some last minute sneak peeks of what is right around the corner. I know you have all been so patient so I want to make sure I get them out to…

Summer’s End

I can't even believe that our summer is not so slowly coming to a close. I know its kind of an artificial end and that we could all stay in summer mode for a bit longer but I guess we have to listen to the calendar! And so our SCHEDULED summer is almost over and I don't think I am quite ready. My tomatoes aren't quite ready yet, either! In the Kitchen… This morning our FARM FRESH TO YOU box of goodies arrived as it does every week. Its a wonderful thing and even though we are growing some of our own veggies this summer, the weekly box keeps us stocked with everything we might need. This week the box came at 11:00 and by noon I had sauteed up a few things for a quick staff snack. We all took a…

Market Fabric Snapshots

Fig Tree went traditional this time around. Classic and traditional with some of our most popular colors from best selling lines. Do you recognize any of them? Introducing Butterscotch & Rose…. For a dash of classic elegance for Fall 2011. I hope it conjurs [sp?] up visions of fall and winter projects and even a bit of home redecorating. I created it for autumn, but some of my customers have shown me that it is certainly perfect for the holidays as well! Pull out the rich reds and classic greens paired with the cream and Christmas is just around the corner. I wonder what you might create? Tune in tomorrow for a chance to get some in person…. soon!  A giant box of MODA goodness just arrived and I am itching to do something with some of it!   Here are my favorite shots of the colorways…

Poking my head out… or in….

Yes, its that time of the year again. The time when all us designer type folks seem to disappear into our caves and come out only for food and water!, or maybe coffee or soda! I realized the other day that I hadn't been on twitter or the web, a place that is sometimes my only interaction with the outside world other than my family, for 5 days! Not a good sign for keeping up with the world, good sign for getting work done and meeting all my deadlines. We are almost done designing over here in this particular Northern California cave although we are still waiting for our advance yardage to arrive so the sewing insanity is yet to start! We are hoping for sometime next week. As usual, we're cutting it pretty close but that's just how we roll around here! BTW…

Buttercup, Buttercup!

 Last time I talked with you it had started shipping but now its officially here, and there and a bit more over there! Buttercup has officially hit store shelves nationwide!! [If you are international, maybe just a few more days….] Hope you are able to get your hands on a little bit of this Springtime goodness in the midst of this crazy cold weather and start working on something to bring a little sunshine into your life. Our sources say that the fabric is close to selling out on the wholesale side so get yours while you can.             I know we'll be sewing up a storm over here this weekend. Hope you will be too! Now…. what to make first? Hope your weekend is full of fabric goodness! Talk to you soon. &#0160…
