I just thought it would be a cool place to start. Did anyone else crossstitch this and then frame it when they were about 10. Kwitcherbellyakin was a popular phrase and it made for quite the chic sampler. I tell you folks I'm loaded with them. So lets face it getting a college room ready for a girl can not only be time consuming but if you don't want your child to bellyache get over to Go make your bed. She is hoppin over there trying to meet all the college deadlines! But they are soooo pretty. I love Nancy Geaneys bed in a bag because you get something different and unique that only you will have. She is the master and I love how the bag is employed as a pillow case when not carting the duvet and quilt around. Go Nancy! The last picture is the new book by Judy Lake aka Lamp shade lady. Judy will also be at Brimfield signing her new book so check her out and stay close to her blog updates. The book just hit the stores so it just just came out and she devulges the secrets of making lampshades!!!
I've watched her in awe for years sell her one of a kind beauties and
now she is disclosing all her secrets….get in line behind me! She
also used one of my Casey Scrolls so I am extremely fond of that
girl!!! It doesn't take much, mention me in your next book and we can
be bff's..:) Talk soon Oh and Judy will be at Brimfield with her books so stay close to her blog to find out the dates. It's all good in my hood!!!
I adore these bed in a bag sets! especially the set in the Amanda Fleur fabric. These girls will be the envy of all their roommates. I want one too!
That lampshade is DIVINE!
Too funny. I took a little break from making throw pillows for my daughter’s dorm room (already finished the quilt) and pulled up your post about the same thing. I hid my small stash of Sis Boom fabrics, though. I’m still trying to get more Mod Girls — then on the Pretty Please and Dance with Me. I guess I’ll get to make something for myself then!
It’s all so pretty.
Very pretty items!!!
I can wait till dorm rooms, I can wait…very pretty!
Your fabrics make beautiful bedding and the lamp is lovely.
Must get the lampshade book – too sweet!!!!
Love the lampshade. Always terrific photography. I spy yummy trims on those shelves.
Nancy’s work is gorgeous. I enjoying stopping by her site to dream…
And I have been thinking of lampshades so thanks for mentioning the book.
Have a great day!
OH, I only I were 18 again, right? I’d have my room plastered with paisley color. Beautiful work Jennifer!
Hi, Jennifer! Everything is looking so fresh and beautiful as always!
I wanted to pick your brain about fabric design. I wasn’t sure of the best way to contact you. I’ve been designing and selling some fabrics through my etsy shop, and wondered if I could ask your opinion…
I should have named my youngest daughter that: kwitcherbellyakin!
Anyways…gorgeous quilts and fabrics!
I seriously love those beds in a bag!! OH how i would have loved to have that in my dorm room!!!
Almost makes me wish to be back in college! Oh the dorm room I could have now!!! ( well, not long and I’ll have three to help with!)
and the lampshade! Oh my!!! must seek a copy of that new book!
Hi Jennifer! I’m so excited to see the book on lampshades. A couple of weeks ago I made some new chandelier shades with your Casey Scroll fabric. They turned out so cute – it’s still one of my all time favorite fabrics. Here’s a link to the picture of the shades http://eabdesigns.typepad.com/my_weblog/2009/08/chandelier-shades.html
I stopped by today and am so glad I did. That bed in a bag is fabulous. The color combinations are wonderful. Hoping all is well with you. My blog is well underway and I think I’ve hit my stride with it. I was just taking some time to subscribe to my favorite blog – of which yours is one. All the best,
Oh Jenn!! I have sooo been looking for a new comforter/quilt for my daughter’s bed and NOW I KNOW exactly what she needs….THANK YOU for sharing…and I love the fabrics used! lol! 😉
BEAUTIFUL! My daughter’s roommates LOVED the pillows I made (using some of your fabric); think I’m going to have to learn to quilt.
Sis Boom: transforming dorm rooms everywhere!
(love love love the lampshade)
A bed in a bag…that’s actually classy?!?! Love it! and the lamp shade is so fun too!
And I crossstitched a teddy bear holding balloons, left it “framed” in the embroidery hoop which I tied ribbon around. It took me THREE YEARS to finish it…!!! 🙂
Thanks , Jennifer, for all of your support. It’s so easy to use your lovely fabrics.
I love that lampshade!!!
Your blog always makes me want to get the sewing machine going…
I’m sure your daughter is the envy of all in her dorm!
The lampshade is wonderful!
Hey Jennifer, thanks so much for putting my book up on your awesome blog. I always love when I get to see your new fabrics. I truly love mixing your fabrics together. They are such fun to contrast the purples and yellows together. I am trying to pull together a booth at Brimfield, yikes, it’s been a while since I’ve done a show!! Gotta get my show stuff together and new kd canopy. Spanking white and clean. I’ll be at Sheltons B53 Tuesday Sept 8th at daybreak…. early for as long as I can take it.Hope to see you there.
