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.!!
The bus went by today and it’s always a trigger for longing..It went by so fast and yet I am so grateful to be present for all of it. There is so much that can take us out of the day to day , we see it all the time. I ‘m just so glad to have felt all the good the bad and the ugly. There is something so precious about being present and available to our kids. I love mine to bits and I do miss the wonder that they experience in front of you every day..It’s exquisite. So when I saw this beautiful quilt on the beach that Jane from Maiden Jane made it made me miss their youth even more. She created something so beautiful that will be packed with memories over the years! Have you met Jane be sure to follow her she is delightful. Crazy Love is no longer being produced but lots of places carry them. Here’s one place I found. Quilt Home has a ton!!
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!
So enjoy making the market tote and sunhat we appreciate you!!
Lovely to meet you!
Like my Hat??
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!!
Thursday Friday Saturday . Feel Free to bring friends!! We are also raffling off 4 yards of Super Fly to those we love and haven’t met yet!!! We are so sorry we can’t bring the handmade around the ware and tear is alarming. Did it for years and just lucky enough to be able to open the house!
Flipping through Flickr we’re always, always inspired by your genius creations. A recent photo posted by our dear friend, 100 Billion Stars really got us excited. It was a simple Queen Street dot in a teeny frame, topped off with a J. Wow… we thought.. How simple, how special, how quick. This is when we had an urge to share a special DIY idea!
Finally– a use for all of those stray frames lying around the house and in the attic!!! Here we used mostly Honey Child with a teeny splash of Queen Street to get a happy, bright, bold vibe going. All you have to do is frame the fabric, cluster the frames up on a wall and viola! It’s SO COOL!
