LITTLE BOX OF FIGS: BOX 2

So hopefully by now most of you have received and are already enjoying our LITTLE BOX OF FIGS: The Fall Edition. Thank you to all of you how have let us know how much you are loving the "ingredients" of this second box! We are so very glad! I know that many of you missed out on this annual subscription and are wondering if you have any chance of jumping in on the fun. ORDERING UPDATES So here is the scoop…. we do not have any more official spots for this year [although every once in a while we do have an opening due to illness or emergency and we then contact the next person on the wait list from March]. Since there is a fabric based project in each of our boxes, we are limited by the amount of fabric that we have pre-ordered for each…

More on the MINIS…

Okay… so I am going to try to answer all the MINI questions at once. Hopefully yours is in there! • We have 4 new minis. This week they were all available as PDF download patterns. Including a great deal on a bundle! Starting on Monday, they will also all be available as printed paper patterns. Including a bundle too :-). The PDF's will only be available from us. The printed patterns will be available from any store who purchases our patterns. As a gal who loves all things paper, the patterns don't really seem real until they come in their shiny little packages. I can't wait fo the paper patterns to get here. • We will also start shipping to stores on Monday. So if you have contacted us for the patterns, that is when they will start to ship. • We will most likely offer…

Honeysweet Pattern Showcase #3

When we found out our new collection was having those brand new yummy little hexagon packs with it, we knew it had to be something cute and small and did I mention cute? Introducing HEXIES, our new mini "thread" pattern made from the new MODA HONEYCOMB packs. Actually one pack can make up to 5 HEXIE bags!  … on our samples, each piece both inside and outside is a different hexie and thus a different fabric. So much fun to play with. … embellished with a simple snap and an outer button, each purse has its own little personality.     … they are a bit addicting to make. Kinda like eating potato chips. PATTERN INFO NAME: Hexies SIZE: The purses measure app. 3" x 5" across the top, when stuffed. The gusset on the side is about 1 1/2" deep. FABRIC: These…

On the 11th Day of Christmas

  On the  11th Day of Christmas my true love gave to me, eleven Pipers Piping. Again, I have to admit that the image of an entourage comes to mind but I don't want to repeat myself. Can you imagine the entrance one would make with eleven Pipers Piping? I am slowly running out of ways to reject this poor man's gifts. Perhaps eleven Pipers Piping isn't so bad…. But perhaps a little bit better, or at least a little bit cuter would be this super sweet flour sack tea towel with our latest critter on it. Please meet Hazel, the Hedgehog and the HAZEL FLOUR SACK TOWEL KIT. Not sure you all want a hedgehog story but here's one anyway. When my husband and I were first married, we collected hedgehogs of every kind and size imaginable- cards…

Pattern Showcase #3

You know how we are about our projects…. we love those quilts nice and big and our mini patterns, nice and little. Its a perfect combination in the studio. If we get tired of piecing, we move on to our little mini projects for a totally different pace and then back again. It really is a good way to go, especially if, like me, you enjoy the satisfaction of getting something little done in the midst of a larger project.   So along those lines, introducing  A PEAR IN A TREE. Do you get it? As opposed to A Partridge in a Pear Tree? Yah, well, my husband didn't get it either but I entertained myself!   … perfect to make with one of those yummy little MODA CANDY packs or any of your favorite little piles of scraps. These make perfect ornaments or decorations of…
