Introduction #6

Strawberry Cafe Remember a couple of posts back when I said I was having a serious fruit thing going on?  Well here is more evidence for that theory. These are my favorites right now. Now, I will admit that these little curtains are a bit more "cute sweet" as I call it, than my house is normally. I am more of a plain vintage girl and not so much cutesy as far as the house goes. But…. I broke down with these little cuties, especially since its summer right now and they are perfect for the season!  So far we have auditioned them in the laundry room, the kitchen and even the bathroom. Yes, you heard me right, the bathroom.  Even a bathroom can use a little re-fresher once in a while, right? It looks like perhaps we might be sewing more than…

Introduction #5

Clover Somehow I have managed to miss 2 days of introductions! How did that happen? I had such good intentions…. Let's just blame it on the end of school schedules of 3 munchkins & the gradution ceremonies of 1 of them. Okay, back to previously scheduled programming as my hub would say…. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • For several of the past seasons, we have not done specific projects with charm packs. I don't know why really. We were in love with the jelly rolls and mostly the layer cakes because you could do so much interesting stuff with those "cakes"… pretty much four charm packs worth. But the last couple of releases, we have rediscovered the charm pack I guess. Quick 5" squares already cut for you, what's not to love I ask you?  And so this pattern was born. You…

Introduction #4

Sweet Berry Bag I really seam to be having a serious strawberry thing going on lately. Actually a fruit thing if I think about it. Between the Cherry Delight project I did for Quilts&More, this strawberry bag and the strawberry cafe curtains & table topper that I have yet to "introduce" to you [and I am working on something with pears…], I am all about the fruit these day. Really don't know what that is all about… maybe one of those "trends" I was just talking about except that this one is mostly all in my own head I think! Anyway, we designed this as a purse for girls of all sizes but we have been amazed by all the women who have are making one for themselves! So I guess its a purse for anyone who is young at…

A Little Tour

Its always so embarassing for me to watch myself on film or even hear my voice recorded. Isn't it funny how we hear and see ourselves so differently than we actually are? Anyway, even though I personally have to cringe and look away :-), for those of you who haven't had enough of Market yet, I thought you might like a live view of the booth… Back to introductions later. Talk to you soon…

Introduction: Day #3

Today's Introduction: Saltwater Taffy It's always fascinating to me how the quilt and pattern industry goes in such clear and identifiable waves or trends. A few designers get inspired by something, then a few more and very soon there is an explosion of a colors or designs or patterns featuring said trend. Its unmistakeable and it happens like clockwork. I know that this is the way it is in most artistic or creative industries, but since I am most connected to this one, it is always so interesting for me to watch a "trend" spread into so many different venues and in so many different interpretations. I love watching it happen and I love being a part of it… especially when I am at the beginning of the inspiration LOL! …Saltwater Taffy done out of Fresh Cottons with a tone one tone…
