Ha! Yes. I knew this post could come across the wrong way. I want to be authentic at all times. When you're having a hard time, but can't share details, that can be hard to do without sounding mysterious. xo—Heather

Thank you, Sonja. Glad to meet you. I will be updating the site soon and should be sharing more frequently. I look forward to getting to know you.
Yikes. It's amazing that obscure sicknesses find the hosts they need to keep hounding the world's population. I hope you recovered well and quickly. -Heather
Thank you, Sue. I sure love to create them.

Thank you, Sherrill. It's hard to find a good balance between sharing and over-sharing. Perhaps I should just say thank you without all the vaguery. Without having posted in a while, I figured some explanation was appropriate. Thanks for your understanding.

March. I like March. I'm recovered from the holidays and from two January birthdays (Elijah and Charlotte). It's still early in the year for big plans and the Arizona weather is delightful. (I'm sorry this isn't the case for everyone.)... Continue reading

I have two new sewing patterns to announce this week, starting with the Prize Bloom Quilt. This three-dimensional floral design is a rewarding project. It gives you the opportunity to practice a variety of techniques (curved piecing, inset corners, appliqué),... Continue reading

You are so welcome. I'm in the middle of finishing up several sewing patterns, so I'm a little scattered to say the least. I'm glad you found this post. Thanks for bringing beauty to baby rooms all over. —Heather B.

I've come across the most luxurious baby bedding by Tushies & Tantrums. I believe I was originally tagged in an Instagram post. (Which is one of my favorite things about Instagram—getting to see what is being made with my fabric... Continue reading

You ARE reading that correctly. I'm working hard to up my pace. The next line will tie in nicely with Up Parasol. It has a mod & playful spirit. The other one is a surprise and won't be shipping for a long while (next summer?). ;-) Heather

Thank you, Holly. I'm always working on something! —Heather
Above, I'm using a bezel setting, which is a pre-made necklace finding. It looks a bit like an embroidery hoop, but it doesn't function in the same way. I'd love to see how your idea works. How well do your necklaces hold up? Is there enough weight to the finished pendants that they will hang nicely and stay forward-facing? —Heather
I'm excited to see what she has. Thanks for the tip. —Heather
