There’s a New Girl in Town

Hello fellow Sis Boom admirers! My name is Lisa and I am the newest addition to Team Sis Boom! From here on out one of my many tasks here will be to serve as your Style Maven! We’ll talk about the latest trends in fashion, fabrics, furniture and many more things that don’t necessarily start with an “F”. Before we get to that, here’s a little bit about me: I grew up in Connecticut with a fierce passion for design.  While I studied creative writing my background includes running a children’s shop, bedding design, interior design, visual merchandising and being a pretty awesome Aunt to 4 little girls and 1 little man. In 2008 I caught a glimpse of my very fist Sis Boom design (in the collection “Bell Bottoms”) and instantly became a fan!  To quote my brand new Twitter account (www.twitter.com/lbeesa) I’m a “lover of laughter, textiles, elephants, pineapples, triangles, the beatles and much, much more!”  I am thrilled to be working side by side with Jennifer and Co. and cannot wait to meet and speak with each and every one of you!

 

For my first post I’ve decided to let my OCD get the best of me and bring something to your attention….Have you noticed that the dots featured in JennyEliza on the JoAnn Fabrics website look enormous?!? I promise you they are not! The image shown is a highly pixelated version! I want you guys to know exactly what you’re getting so below please take a look the ACTUAL scale of the dots featured on our lovely Sophie. I’ve included the pixelated version as well for your viewing pleasure. PHEW! I feel better getting that off my chest!

 

Thank you so much for welcoming me into your world Sis Boom fans!

 

Untill next time -

Lisa

Folks are loving the bundle and while you were busy doing that, Our Girl Carla was in the Scientific Seamstress lab whipping up the companion aptly named Tobago because she knows you all go cray cray for the mother daughter patterns.  So Monday check in with the Scientific Seamstress fan page because I’m sure it will be available on Etsy.

Love a collaboration!!

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, Jenniferaprettysite

Wow I am the luckiest girl I know!!!  This past weekend I was unable to attend Quilt Market due to our imminent show here back at home.  I was fortunate to be blessed by lovely friends who really did an outrageous job of sharing Lucky Girl with all of you.  First of all to know the Long Ladies of Marie Madeline Studios is to love them.  Hearts as big as the eye can see.  You just want to be around them and be smothered by there openness to love you right back.  I am so touched by their gifts and there uncanny ability to make beautiful things. This year with appliques and stunning clothing and fierce patch working I can only pray that they hit the roof in sales!!  My understanding was that the booth was always crowded!!  I want to thank Freespirit for supplying them with Lucky Girl so they could have everything ready for market.  Long Girls what can I say..except your beauty out shined everything ! I will always be your fearless cheerleader and always here for you.  Jenny thanks for your satellite reports from the Convention center in Houston you did an amazing job!!!  So please venture over they have lots of Lucky Girl in stock and Patterns that will bring a smile to your soul.!!

Lazy Lazy Girl

I’ve neglected my blog and the work is piling up!!  Please forgive me. I devote so much time to sewing these days and I really need to get on the stick? ..off the stick? and why a stick?  Anywho I miss you all and I’ve wanted to share with you the greatest project I did this summer …I mean we.  Katies boyfriend Berto painted the dresser below with Annie Sloans Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint, forget the paint, that name sends me to the moon!!! I knew I had to have it and yes pricey for a pint but I still have a 1/2 a can left!!!   This woman is brilliant, her colors are fabulous and the videos and tips on various sites and youtube make the whole thing go quite quickly.  I want to paint everything this color just so I can say Napoleonic  Blue..feels so noble..Royal!! So take a look and tell her I sent you.  Not that she’ll care or even know who I am….So inhale this beautiful dresser if you like.. The knobs are from Anthropologie but a little to transparant..not showing up..so I painted the back white so no light could shine through and now they pop!!!  So I promise from here on forward not to neglect my Blog duties but please say you’ll keep coming..xoxoxo  Oh and sweet boy George was such a big help!

PS this has nothing to do with chalkboard paint..

Soft Spoken

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!!
