If you are anywhere close to the Fairfield County CT area, stop by Christie’s in Norwalk for an open sew. If you’ve always wanted to learn how to make Hexies, Christie is your gal! She created all the gorgeous hexies below and will be sewing them together for a quilt. Stop by and say hi, pull up a chair and learn something new. Christie is always happy to answer any of your sewing and quilting questions, plus she has many of the Sis Boom fabric lines in stock. Hope to see you there!
Wow, what a week of wonderful articles about Sis Boom and Jenny Eliza feeling so honored. Life here is good on the farm. (figurtively due to the labradoodle energy as many of you know.) We have been snowed in for days and I have just been creating designs I think you will love. First up we have the wonderful GenQ Magazine which I have to say I loved Scott Hansen’s out of the box questions. What an incredible writer. Just one correction , I was never on staff or even considered a contributing editor to Country Living Magazine, I just came up with a ton of crafts for them and Nancy Soriano was just the best editor ever!! period!! I had more fun in those years and I love all my girlfriends from those years. We were one big family!!! I did craft videos and staged photo shoots in my home it was out of this world. I loved going to the Hearst Building and showing my stuff!! They were always so receptive and always wanted more!!! They hold a dear place in my heart. So with that all that said forgive the mis-communication Scott and of course I missed it on the proof read..#Mybad. The interview was so stimulating and the questions took me back to my childhood and I thank them for the time I got to reflect and see the island’s impact on my soul!!!! Scott of Blue Nickel Studios my sincerest thanks!! Check out his blog he is one fine quilter in huge demand!!!
Next up my on line girlfriend Chloe Owens is starting an amazing online magazine and approached me for an interview. For those who don’t know Chloe I feel privileged to introduce you. She is an amazing crafter and I know you will agree, you may already have her books in your stash!! See below and get to amazon!!! so from my understanding she has launched this amazing online magazine that is sure to become your go to for fun projects and reads!!! The name of the mag is Bibelot, the book of creative curiosities never heard the word but when I saw the definition I was on board!! My deepest thanks to Chloe for her genius and for supporting the handmade, artistic community!! I also loved the interview, very creative questions!!
Bibelot – [Bi-be-loh]
1. An attractive or curious trinket.
2. A small object of curiosity, beauty or rarity.
3. A miniature book, especially one that is finely crafted.
Bibelot, “The Little Book of Creative Curiosities”, will be a quarterly craft, design and lifestyle magazine celebrating the hand-made, the ethical, and the unique.
Bibelot is about more than craft projects; it represents an imaginative and sustainable way of life. Readers will feel stimulated, uplifted and motivated.
Bibelot will begin its life as a blog, an online hub bringing artistic, original and innovative people together. It’s a space for sharing ideas, learning and sparking inspiration!

So my first line for Joann fabric and craft store is perfect for Christmas stockings banners, and tree skirts!! Just take a look at all of these beauties and the combos of lettering and backgrounds are endless. Throw in some James Thompson Ticking (available in so many rich colors) We are thrilled with the stocking and hope to have a pattern next year in time for the Holidays. The vintage pom poms are all available on Ebay! Check out the green dots and the red dots cause they are fab for Christmas!
Good Company takes my breath away! What a vision. The greens , the blues, the yellows, the pinks all jump at you with the happiest of greetings. They want to be layered, and patchworked and loved to death. Keep our secret safe..quilting cottons, the affordable way to look chic!!

So then Teresa Abel Martin takes it a step further with her darling daughter in fabrics from Joann Fabric and Craft Stores and puts the Cheery in Christmas!!! What a beautiful moment and it looks like it’s taken out of the cinema looks so dreamy and you can tell she has some things she’d like to say. Oh and if Santa does exist, that has got to be him!!!
Jenny Eliza always had that Holiday sensibility and its marvelous that it actually caught on . To purchase these fabrics press here..Still plenty in stock!!
