It’s a new world, it’s a new day and we are blessed to be part of these new emerging times. Check out Judy Buchanan shedding light on the wonderful Jane in Superfly. Remember, Judy is your source for purchasing items if you don’t sew. Shop her adorable and wonderful selection HERE on ETSY, or contact her directly here.
Loving these bold prints juxtaposed with this Shabby Chic Interior. We get to choose. How lovely is that? There used to be so many rules. My mom reminds me of them all the time- mostly that everything from one era stayed in that era and that you didn’t mix. Now it’s so much more eclectic and we define our own style in making choices. In my mind, there is a fresh breath in Judy’s take on the world and it is shown over and over on our facebook page. She has style.
I hope you will join us on facebook— join the conversation, because everyone there wants to meet you and we are all saving a place for you. If you love what we do here just stop in and meet like-minded friends.
So, here are some portraits from Georgia Handy’s latest photo shoot. (See more Georgia Handy HERE). The brilliance of this combo below can’t be denied. Your photographer and his interpretation is everything- that’s why I so love Mr. Tim Geaney who photographed both of our books, Girls World and Happy Home. Purchase them for less than $35.00 on Amazon! (Now, that’s unheard of!).
Hoping for signed copies? Look no further – visit our shop.
Let’s all take a moment to admire this sweet Mia. How precious is she?! Thanks Tim, for capturing this Sis Boom moment.
We’re LOVING how Super Fly, such a mod, strong, large, bold print, is lending itself to a soft, sweet moment here. It’s like the print that does it all– from ultra mod curtains and pillows to dainty dresses for sweet little girls.
We hope this peaceful Sis Boom moment made you smile. What would you do with Super Fly?!
Whenever Tim and Nancy get together to photograph our new fabric lines something magical occurs. Something extraordinary. I love Tim’s photography and Nancy’s styling is a win win. There is such an ethereal quality to the photographs and they always allude to story telling. When we work together my life feels abundant and whole and with direction. I never know what the result will be but it’s always tremendous and far exceed my wildest dreams. So here is their niece Mia in the tranquility of the outdoors in her Mary Fancy sash dress from Girls World with their cat Ollie who is never far from the camera lens. The fabric is Jane in blue and it’s found here! Thank you Hawthorne Threads!!

Not to toot our own horn.. (errrrr.. that’s exactly what we are about to do)… but, we are getting the most rave reviews on Girl’s World and had to take a moment to share it with all of you.
Between folks praising the simplicity and awesomeness of the patterns (big thanks to our dear Dolin of Lulu Bliss), and the oooh’s and aaah’s over the absolutely stunning photography by Tim Geaney, (not to mention the rest of our fabulous & talented team), we are just so, so proud of this amazing Chronicle Books publication.
This brings us to our next note, which is the idea of Girl’s World as a holiday gift. We just think that it is such a special collaboration of photographs, projects, patterns, and a true labor of love, that will add creativity, happiness, joy, and and truly imaginative, whimsical experience into any little girl’s life!
So, with that being said, maybe you want to let Santa know… or maybe you want to spoil yourself and pick up a copy just for fun. Order yours at Amazon today!
Either way, we know you won’t be disappointed 🙂
Get Girls World Get Inspired. It’s that simple!!!! A patchwork memo board!! We have never seen one before now and Inside Girls World are the instructions to make this beauty!! The girls in the bedroom are looking so dreamy but it’s the wonderful bedding and richness of the Sis Boom Fabrics that create this happy place. Show us your Girls World, we know you can make it happen. Just start, don’t be intimidated , they are simple projects that can make a pretty difference. The most important thing is that you try!! I also want to say that it is incredible value because if you were to purchase four patterns it would be $40.00 dollars off the bat and on amazon they are selling for about $22.00 with shipping. The point I’m making is you will not regret the price. Also stock up for Christmas because crafters and sewers alike are discovering the projects in this book. Oh and if you are teaching Girls World let us know we’ll send Living a Girls World badges. Girl Scouts, Church Groups, Community Organizations, Sewing groups we are here to support you….there’s a buzz and we can never thank you enough. all the best, me.
Don’t forget our blog has a list of places that sell our fabrics please go there first for best selection.
Join us in welcoming the newest Sis Boom patterns!!!….

More about The New Gals in town, Rebecca and Shannon…
The Rebecca shift is a stunningly simple garment that gets you right out the door, looking manicured and ready for anything. Grocery store, errands, PTA, cocktail party, speaking engagement….this is THE go-to closet item. The flattering notched neckline and dropped waistband can be made with matching or contrasting prints. Imagine the Sis Boom fabric choices that take this one from prepster college girl to sophisticated city girl. Because of the tailored style, we have provided extremely detailed fitting information and pattern pieces in every numerical size from 0-26W. The semi-fitted skirt and princess bodice can be made from a combination of sizes to get a cut that is perfect for your proportions. In addition, the bodice and skirt have multiple cutting lines, so even if you are tall or petite, you can get just the torso and hemline lengths you are after.
The simple shift is a true all-occasion garment, and we are so in love with our Shannon! Pair with flip-flops for a stroll along the boardwalk, or with a headband and dressy flats for an evening at the symphony. This little dress features a tailored fit with a slight A-line flair. The notched neckline and dropped-waist belt can be made of matching or contrasting fabric…what a fun way to play with Sis Boom prints! The bodice and skirt have multiple cutting lines so you can get just the look and length you are after.
The Sis Boom Halter Dress/top!!!!! Make it your signature!! This is going to be a hot one..Is she lovely or what..Our sweet Kelsey!! Photo by Tim Geaney as if you didn’t know. Watch You Can Make This for our latest in Apparel!! Oh and stock up on Queen Street cause this look is fabulous!!
In this Girl’s World post a little while back we asked you to guess who the wonderful photographer was… a handful of you guessed right… Tim Geaney!!! Brilliant, right?! Anything he does has that very special, very magical, oh-so-perfect touch.
Since there were so many correct guesses we just had to pick a winner… winner gets 6 Honey Child Fat Quarters…
Are you ready?…
The Winner is Jan Richards!!!
Thanks everyone for your awesome comments!
Wherever we go folks want to know this beautiful woman. She Glows. Happy from the inside out folks see that when they meet her. She has taught me so much over the years but mostly how to love, how to forgive and how to walk by his side. She reminds me of how good life is even in that moment when the world feels like it’s falling down around me. She’s a rock and in the summer I am lucky that she spends time with me and helps with the biz. She’s actually wearing one of our newer styles called the Claire which she named for one of my nieces. She loves that name. The business keeps her young and she loves to be involved and I love when she lends her sensibility. She’s a special lady as you can see by the light in her eyes that has been captured so beautifully by Tim Geaney and her make up by Nancy Geaney . Yes that dynamic duo!! love you Mom!!
