Summer Style Using Jenny Eliza

Jodie, of Twinkle Star down in Australia, tagged me on Instagram with this darling romper using my Jenny Eliza fabric available at Jo-Ann Fabrics. I just love it. She used Bungalow Multi Floral for the romper and Green Dots for the ruffled short sleeves. Jodie ships all over so check out her darling Made It shop if you have a wee one to shop for in your life.

Best of all Jenny Eliza is on sale for $6. 99 a yard at Jo-Ann Fabrics right now so order a couple of yards of your favorite today! Or call your local Jo-Ann today to find out if they’ve got it on the shelves. Keep sharing what your making with me on Facebook or Instagram! It always inspires me and I hope it inspires my other readers too. XOXO

Dream of Possibilities

So my job is to entice! How am I doing?  I know it feels like a tease but you can be sketching and laying out your quilt ideas or children’s clothes or beach bags while I torture you with my photos.  I know not very nice.  So you’ll just have to sit back and take it!!  You know I love you guys.  Wow facebook has been lighting up like a switchboard and please no hard feelings if I don’t get to you I am doing my best but sometimes I have been known to miss a few things whatever you do don’t take it personally. Seriously it’s all about the fun of creating.  I adore all of you so much and would hate to think you felt overlooked.  So here’s some photos to help you think outside the box.  Much love, Jennifer

Great country I tell you. They get me!!

Do You Know About Our Downloadble Embroidery?!

…So we’re surfing through flickr, one of our favorite spots, as you all know, and we came across this darling tie dye onesie embroidered with a Sis Boom design!

This sweet little piece was designed by the talented, fabulous, Carla Crim of Scientific Seamstress, who we are also SO lucky to have working on our patterns as well! She seriously has a magical touch, that Carla!!!

She doesn’t stop with the onesie..she’s also embroidered hand towels, napkins & more. What an awesome idea!! Totally adds that necessary pinch of fun to everyday items! Love it, Carla! You ROCK!

Sis Boom Swaddle

Somewhere between the chaotic moments of everyday life we should all carve out a moment to do just this… Just be at peace.

Just relax. Just step out of ourselves and count our blessings.

Just act like a peaceful sleeping baby.

Let’s all take a moment today for this very special purpose. If you have to lock yourself in the bathroom or hide in a closet to get some peace and quiet– go for it. Just a few moments can recharge you for a long time.

Thank you Starlit Nest for bringing us this moment of pure peace. We wish you all a peaceful day! Beautiful photography by Shawnee
