This week sharing the love

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!!

The Boy

Here it comes the best shirt pattern for boys ever just two weeks away!  We named the pattern  Ethan after this guy in the photo here.  Ethan is the son of Jenny from Sew Pretty Dresses who you all know so well!  You may recall Ethan’s sister, Kelsey is one of our all time favorite models and she loves everything Sis Boom. Here she is supporting her brother’s debut. We love Jenny and the love she brings to everything she does what can I say it just shows.  So the Ethan will be also available for men as the Marco and I know that you are all waiting for that as well.  Oh and this fabric from West Indies is perfect for these shirts it’s called  Luca and can be found at Cotton Blossom Farm , Ebay, Etsy, and Hawthorne Threads.


Happy Home for the Holidays

Sorry about the intermittent blogging I’ve got so much to do!!!  I love handmade at the Holidays. Thanks for your lovely thoughts for my mama, she is feeling way better and hope is on the horizon.  If you’ll excuse me I’ll plug Happy Home for a Holiday Gift for the next couple of months until I’ve sold every last one!!! (I wish)  I wonder what you are all creating for the Holidays show me on Sis Boom facebook because I love to share in your creations.  We also need to have a raffle soon, so next week we’ll do something about that.  Good cheer my friends.  Think about handmade and made in the USA , we certainly do!!  Hugs to all!!  Hey has anyone attempted the dog bed in Happy Home?  Check out Georgie!!



Keeping It Light

Not much to say except that we are fine and dealing with the aftermath of Sandy.  So appreciated your comfort and prayers during this scary time.  Thanks for all your support.  We were one of the lucky ones not a single tree came down and that’s saying a lot.  Like all of you praying for the victims and all of those with the stress of clean up.  We have water and electricity so please come by and use the facilities!! Yes folks there are plenty of folks without power and until the water table recedes plenty without water.  So continue to keep the northeast in your prayers it was a devastating blow that will forever live in our collective memories.  So grateful to all of you.

Here’s something to make you smile and continue to keep it light.

George and Charlie!
