It's Here!

Sample yardage of Butterfields has arrived in my studio! It's so exciting to hold my first fabric line in my hands. It may be a little cold and snowy outside, but my sewing room feels like spring is in full bloom!

I think it's such a pretty fabric collection and I can't wait to share with you all the new patterns I will be designing with it.

I hope you all love Butterfields as much as I do. 
It truly is a dream come true! 

Not the best week

It’s been a really tough week. I found myself in emergency dental surgery on Friday morning after a long and painful week. I won't go into the details because I know no one really wants to hear about a trip into dental surgery. Let’s just say I have lots of stitches and kind of sad about the whole adventure but hopefully the worst is behind me. Thankfully I'm on very strong pain medication so I am just focusing on getting better.

(from my husband and chidren - I found these in my studio this morning)

When you have felt as bad as I have it sure was comforting to walk back into my studio this morning.  Not sure I will get anything done today but there is nothing more healing than playing with beautiful fabric and smelling fresh roses.
Happy weekend everyone. I hope you get to play with lots of pretty fabric.

Spring Bling Pincushions

Who doesn't like a little sparkle?!

These two pincushions are easy to create and it’s so
much fun to fancy them up with a vintage brooch and some shimmery buttons. Or if sparkle isn’t your thing, a big round button in the middle of the flower would look beautiful.

This past December I found lots of beautiful brooches and buttons online at Etsy and at local shops.

Have fun hunting for just the right buttons or bling!

My new “Spring Bling” pattern
is available on my website.
