My name is Sandi Henderson, my daily face bears a happy Mommy and Wife. The worlds most cherished calling. My alter ego is that of a fabric and pattern designer. You are likely to catch a bit of both here, on my personal blog.

This year is going to be awesome! You know why? It's a green year. Pantone has claimed Emerald to be the color of the year. Now, I must take a color snob moment and make a disclaimer that I actually... Continue reading

I love nativity scenes. They are the Christmas decoration that I allow myself to have more than one "set" of. I figure it represents most directly the reason we celebrate Christmas, so why not have one in every room? My... Continue reading

I think the best part of having our own home again is having our own kitchen. For a family who loves food (not just eating, but cooking and preparing too!) not having your own kitchen is hard. So yes, I... Continue reading

The other day I was fidgety and needed to play with some color. I hopped on the computer and opened up the fabric collection I am designing. Nothing came. In fact, I was growing edgy and fast falling into what... Continue reading
