Meet Jenny, I finally got to meet this wonderful lady at Quilt market and she really is such a special girl. A real girls girl!! We are blessed with wonderful internet connections of so many like minded people. They are such amazing connections. But then you get to meet them in real life and they are everything and more. Jenny you have become such an amazing friend and I thank God for you daily!! I love the two fabrics together. SuperFly is just the best for everything!! Jenny you look so pretty but you had me at those red shoes!! Read her escapades at market!! Find Fabric here and chunky Zebra here. Thanks Fabric.com and Equilter!!
This is an older shot but i think it gives a nice feel for the Shana Bell tunic for the fall!! Opaques (mine have to be control top) and sleek boots!!! Great pattern!!
We feel like today is a day for a Rosetta bag… why? Just because! We love the Rosetta on everyone– from sweet little gals to adult women. There is something so beautifully versatile about the bag.
We know it’s got a lot goin’ on with the ruffles and all… but why not play a little more and add some Rosettes! Pssst.. don’t confuse Rosettes with Rosetta!
The Frayed Rosette pattern is totally F-R-E-E and we think that these Frayed Rosettes will make wonderful bag embellishments.. especially for a sweet little girl that simply can’t get enough ruffle and rosette in her wardrobe! You can attach the Frayed Rosettes along the top where the blue ribbon lines in this photo.. or create a totally different idea and surprise us!!

More about The New Gals in town, Rebecca and Shannon…
The Rebecca shift is a stunningly simple garment that gets you right out the door, looking manicured and ready for anything. Grocery store, errands, PTA, cocktail party, speaking engagement….this is THE go-to closet item. The flattering notched neckline and dropped waistband can be made with matching or contrasting prints. Imagine the Sis Boom fabric choices that take this one from prepster college girl to sophisticated city girl. Because of the tailored style, we have provided extremely detailed fitting information and pattern pieces in every numerical size from 0-26W. The semi-fitted skirt and princess bodice can be made from a combination of sizes to get a cut that is perfect for your proportions. In addition, the bodice and skirt have multiple cutting lines, so even if you are tall or petite, you can get just the torso and hemline lengths you are after.
The simple shift is a true all-occasion garment, and we are so in love with our Shannon! Pair with flip-flops for a stroll along the boardwalk, or with a headband and dressy flats for an evening at the symphony. This little dress features a tailored fit with a slight A-line flair. The notched neckline and dropped-waist belt can be made of matching or contrasting fabric…what a fun way to play with Sis Boom prints! The bodice and skirt have multiple cutting lines so you can get just the look and length you are after.
Just meet Tom Jordan, the man behind beautiful clothing for his daughter. Tom stepped out into Quilting as demonstrated by the beautiful pinwheels you see in this photo and has just completed the Memory Board from Girls World.
So nice that we get to see his beautiful daughter in her Girls World surroundings. We love this glimpse and am so touched by the fact you included her with her book!!!! You are so good to me.

Just in time for the hot month of August. Tom, my long time facebook friend ,you are a gem.
