Our intern artist Lauren Cody was commissioned to revamp the vintage Putz Houses that had seen better days. Lacking their luster Lauren went to work this past summer to renovate these little houses from the past and gave them character . Wow, they are so happy now and definitely a place I would like to live. Love you guys. Thanks Lauren for the love you pour into these. More Houses at our show below..xo
PS Barbara Strawser will be here and she can’t wait to meet you all!!
Lynn Harris’s quilts speak to me I love how an innocent golden brown pinwheel glides over the surface of her Lucky Girl Quilt. It is indeed magical and I am always happy with the choices she makes when doing a Sis Boom Quilt. Lynn is wonderful and now has a long arm quilting machine so talk to her. I send it to her and she does the quilting. This collection reminds me of an old quilt with random pieces thrown together but it’s the darks and the lights that create the story!!! I love the navy in this collection because it grounds everything else. Thanks for the classic you created Lynn. I am in heaven….seriously!!
Here’s the remarkable tote everyone talks about in our Happy Home book. We actually have a beautiful sunhat as well to show you the versatility of quilting cottons, not just for quilts but has expanded to apparel and home dec product categories. We just adore Circa and are so glad you have decided to hoard that line because it will be years before it makes a comeback if at all. It is a classic and will live on long after the shelves are depleted. We thought we’d show you two of the projects from Happy Home done up in Circa for your viewing pleasure. As you all know I have made it my mission to get these books into every sewist’s hands so they can have fun creating all the loveliness inside these books!! I know I belabor the issue but I love that these books connect us all and inform us of the aesthetic that is Sis Boom. We love that you join us in our homage to color and all the artists that have gone before us in celebrating color!
As you know we continue to share the love , we continue to share projects from our books because with each new fabric collection the books come alive once again. So please do your self a favor try Girls World and Happy Home they are filled with everlasting projects!! The clothing, the floral crowns, the pillows , all find there roots in our books. We look back to them often to inform and fuel new ideas!! Purchase from me and I will sign or purchase from many of the fabric stores when you are purchasing fabric. Purchase both together and with prime shipping you got yourself a deal!! $34.96. So take a look enjoy the photo shoot and please stop by The studio Tuesday for some great deals!!
I did it, I announced Lucky Girl on Facebook. It’s always thrilling to launch a new line but it can be terrifying simultaneously!! You just always want everyone to be happy and that you continue to raise the bar for yourself. Achievement can never really be measured so it has to come from within. I like this line so much and know that you will have so much fun putting the designs together. You know how much I love seeing your work and if I can help you launch a little biz so you can stay home with the kids I am happy to do so!!!! So I hope you are enjoying the summer it can be difficult juggling kids and your biz but take heart in knowing it will come when you are ready and not before. Savor the notion that you are right where you are supposed to be!!
I can say that becauseMichele Conroy Andy Whitby from My Georgie Boy hasn’t put the binding on yet. This is drop dead gorgeouness at it’s finest. Holy Cow!! Made in Australia I’m sure she will ship to the US. This huge beautiful double quilt is amazing made from Circa!! Only one available!!! I am so inspired by this each block looks like framed artworks. Way to go my Aussie friend!! You are on fire!! I had the wrong name posted..forgive me Michele!!
So there you have it !! Hawthorne Threads has plenty on reorder so you should not have a hard time finding it!!! Make sure to put your name on the list or contact her!!
Denise Walker another fan from Australia has done such an amazing job with Circa and the overalls are just the most exquisite for your baby. Photo ops welcome. We are loving the styling at Butterflybees and as of right now there is not a pattern but you never know. You can see her items on Made it!! We are so delighted to have her as part of the burgeoning group on facebook. I’m telling you they are chatting up on facebook and lots of sewing sites on FB to help you along!! Join the Scientific Seamstress Lab for updates, happenings, sew alongs and coupons!!!!!! Carla has an infinite staff ready to help and answer questions. Make sure you sign up today!!!
You have to love Violet Fields new pattern. We are crazy about it. The Emmaline dress can be found here. We adore it in Circa and love how the Taylor in blue was just made for little girls, priceless, precious!!!! I just couldn’t wait to show you this photo and have you watch the fabric come to life. An abundance of floral bouquets tells a beautiful story on this little girl. Fabric found here.
Here they come our new pillows and we will let you know the retailers that will be carrying them. You saw the ones in Happy Home and for those of you who don’t sew we decided to make them available and boy are we glad we did. The outpouring of love on facebook is a good indication that we scored. My Girlfriend Jennifer at Earth Angels Studios will be a good place to start May 1st! We are so excited by their debut..we are talking HAPPY!!!! You can also create these in our book Happy Home with any word/s you like. Please note do to overstock issues their are plenty of books under new on Amazon with much better pricing..just FYI That’s one of the best sewing books ever. ( I’ve been known to exaggerate.)
Zabtree Couture you have quite the eye. OMG it takes a special vision to put these fabrics together in this ingenious way but I think the theorey is if you love it others will too. I never would have put these together but omg I can’t stand it ,thrilled with the outcome and I know it is going to inspire others to really just may I say “CLASH” if it feels right do it!!! Sometimes a matchy matchy world can close us off from amazing options but friends of Sis Boom all know to do whatever their heart calls them to do! We see it over and over with the folks highlighted on the blog. We love your signature, we want to see what you are up to!! These photos give permission for others to do the same. I get in trouble because I’m not so matchy matchy but my heart flattens a bit when all the blues match, takes the fun out of creativity. There is an energy that we don’t see other places when folks express themselves in this colorful way. Zabtree you rock my casbah!! Theresa Abel Martin you go girl. Find her on facebook.
PS. take a look at the lining of the dress!
