So by now you have heard of Hickity Pickity and I know for some of you it can be confusing because we are always talking about them on Facebook. they are the leaders in their genre. They use quilting fabrics for all of their products and we couldn’t be happier that they are smitten with both Sis Boom and Jenny Eliza. Judy Buchannan has been the visionary of Hickity Pickity and now along with her daughter they have artistically styled a very branded look. They bow to Lily Pulitzer but have a certain signature that moves beyond that and distinguishes them from the pack. They are also the ones that got the Aussies all their Jenny Eliza and we are so grateful for their generosity. Hickity Pickity you make us thirst for more of the incredible style that is you!!! Follow them, They will make you anything, you will enjoy working with them. They are in Florida and ship internationally!!! Organic Moments thanks for all the beautiful photos.
Would love to hear what you think of Dandelion and Boo’s collaboration with Daisy and Poppy and Roses of Blue. We have joined together to raise money for Clown Doctors who bring some humour and smiles to children in hospital. I love the idea of of collaborating for a cause. Making children laugh who are experiencing difficulty is probably the best cause there is. Thank you for allowing us a glimpse of your happy moments in helping the cause. Best, Jennifer
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!!

Way to go my Aussie friend!! You are on fire!! I had the wrong name posted..forgive me Michele!!
