Just for a bit….

I'm popping in just for a bit…

I have disappeared into the depths of my studio once again…. I am sure you all know why. Market is right around the corner and thus I have been in that alternate universe of fabric, design, sewing machine and directions, lots and lots of directions. One of my gals remarked the other day that I don't seem to leave my studio except to eat and play with my munchkins… I think she might be right!

Market falls early this time around, really early and the fabric is late this time around, really late! Crazy combination.  See… I am speaking in 2 word sentences, what is that about? Only awake and productive by means of Starbucks!

I can share a tiny peak of one of my upcoming patterns, entitled Cameos….. that's it there behind the office door. Its a honeybun pattern and its really fun to make. Will have one to show you made from Mill House Inn [this one you are seeing] and one from the new line, Whimsy [that one doesn't quite exist yet]! 

Stay tuned. I think tomorrow my camera will be charged & maybe it will find its way to the yummy stack of brand new lovelies on my studio floor.

Talk to you soon.

    I’m going to send you a card for Starbucks to make sure you don’t run out of energy for all your wonderful ideas! I know you handle stress well… but it seems like they could just be testing you to see “how well”!

    Your peeks are always exciting, best wishes Joanna as you prepare for market.

    2 months ago I saw a pattern over Andover website called ‘Stone cottage’. I said to myself right away that this is the PERFECT pattern to showcase your Mill House fabric. I have placed my order for a FQ bundle (together with Wisscasset), and now eagerly waiting for its arrival. Love all your patterns and fabric, especially Patisserie and Dandelion Girl.

    Don¹t know of this pattern but glad you are eagerly awaiting Mill House Inn.
    Best of luck,

    Waiting for that Starbuck¹s card!

    Oh, you’re such a tease (giggle). Love the new quilt, and I can’t wait to see more! I’m drooling thinking of seeing Whimsy! Must go — am sewing a project with Mill House Inn! Love it, Love it!

    Oh I can’t wait to get and make that pattern. It looks like it would work in almost any colour way. My favorite kind of pattern 🙂
    I can’t wait to get a sneak peak of the new line, even the name sounds perfect.
