This has been such a delightful couple of weeks for me to see some beautiful projects made with my newest line, Pixie Noel. I'm so beyond grateful for those who have dedicated time to make something for the blog tour! Thank you! Today is my turn, along with Christine from stitchingrevival.com and Kerry from kidgiddy.blogspot.com. I'm so excited to share a few things with you! I have 3 new embroidery patterns in in the shop that will match the fabric line, and probably a couple more to come along in the coming months before Christmas. The first pattern is Pixie...

I'm so honored and thrilled to have my new fabric collection, Vintage Market, featured over on the beautiful Violette Field Threads blog as part of their Fabric Love series! I've admired Violette Fields Threads' unique, classy, vintage modern pattern styles for a few years now and absolutely love the little outfits they've created using my Vintage Market fabric collection. I'm 100% totally and completely smitten with the Kate dress using my Navy Stripe Border print. Sigh.... I sincerely want this dress for my daughter, so crossing fingers I can get one made! Isn't that just the sweetest thing?! LOVE! And... Continue reading

I'm so excited to be part of the Riley Blake Spring Blog Tour! As you've noticed, I don't really blog much, but I know a lot of you still do and still enjoy reading blogs, so it's another fun way to be able to connect every once in a while. If you're interested in keeping up with me on an *almost* daily basis you can follow me on Instagram :) My new fabric line, Vintage Market, is set to release in June. It was recently shown at the spring International Quilt Market just last week! I had fun making a... Continue reading

This was quite the work in progress for me, being my first attempt and experience creating and putting together a quilt pattern. Whew! I go MUCH slower than the average human being of course, but goodness that's a lot of work! I'm sincerely impressed with these pattern designers that just whip em out like nothing! Jeepers! Anyway, super fun and really glad I did it! I learned a few things in case there is EVER a next time. But we'll see about that. :) So, my new pattern is called Blueberry Bliss because it's just full of blueberry happiness! I've... Continue reading

I know this is so long overdue, but I've had a few requests for this recently, so I figured it would be useful for perhaps a couple more of you out there.

Here's a tutorial for anyone who might be interested: Needed Materials: (64) 5" charm squares - (a Little Red charm pack has 24 pieces) I cut my squares from yardage. If you... Continue reading

I was recently asked by Riley Blake if I was interested in being featured in their monthly mailer to share my sewing studio and any Country Girls projects I was working on with their customers. Yep, of course I was! So I spiffed up my studio and sent off some photos! Wanna see too? Well it wasn't quite as easy as it sounds, especially since we haven't been in the house very long and the little sewing space still needed some TLC. Paint was the first thing on my list! Thanks to a sweet friend I got it done super... Continue reading

I've waited a long time to show you this line! Country Girls missed going to market by a hair, but it's perfect now and I'm happy it's here! Well, almost. It's available in January 2014! Not sure if that's the beginning, middle or end at this point, but nevertheless....very soon! Yay! This line is really fun because it mixes the red and aqua with the navy, pink and green. You can get lots of different combinations! This line was inspired my love of all things country. To be more specific....Little House on the Prairie, Gingham Girls paper dolls and Holly...

During the summer I had a sweet shop owner in Australia email me some pictures a customer had sent to her, showing what she had made with the Little Red Riding Hood fabrics she purchased from her shop. The shop owner passed them along to me as well as the link to the blog of the lady that made these adorable outfits. It truly brightened my day and I'm in love with these cute photographs! I hope you love them too! All photographs are from The Toffee Tree blog! In LOVE with these gray pants! Now how adorable are those?!... Continue reading

It's been a very long while since I last posted here, but my little summer break kinda extended over just a tad. During the summer the opportunity came up for us to move to Arizona and so we went for it. Our life became much different and focused in a new direction. A wonderful little whirlind began for our family.... We arrived in Arizona at the beginning of October and so far we are loving it! We've enjoyed the new sights and warm weather. The kids are slowly adjusting and hopefully they've all had a little fun here and there.... Continue reading

I think I've demonstrated very well after the last 2 markets that I need at least 2 weeks before I'm even partially ready to do anything that doesn't absolutley HAVE to be done. (sorry blog!) After I'm done vegging out for a minimum of 3 days, my focus turns so much to the ongoings of family life and then bit by bit, the necessesities of running a business sneak back in. I absolutley love what I do, I feel so blessed, so lucky, so honored to be a part of this fabulous and fun industry. I love it all, it's... Continue reading

I've just completed a couple of quilts for market, which is coming up sooner than I can say 'Little Red Riding Hood'. It's in just 11 days and I leave in an even shorter 9! eeek and yay!! I'm very excited and at the same time wondering/hoping if I'll be ready. Crossing my fingers over here. I've made a simple patchwork incorporating my border print, which I'll have a tutorial for on my blog shortly after market. I used Little Scallops in aqua for the backing... And Little Floral in white for the binding....it's so cute! The chevron quilt is... Continue reading

A few months ago we had the cutest little baby twins join our extended family! Even better, it's a boy and a girl and they are simply adorable and sweet. These fabrics are from my line The Simple Life, with a few others from my stash mixed in. Girl bunting baby blanket.... I decided on a simple design, but with just the right amount of extra cuteness added with the patchwork strips between the sections of bunting fabric. My extra fabrics included some Pam Kitty Love, Doohikey Designs, Annies Farmstand and Lecien. ( I think I'm right on those...) ;)... Continue reading

This granny quilt was always intended to be my daughters 'baby quilt'. I just happened to have started it when she was about 2 and I've finally finished it just after she has turned 4. At least she has it to keep for forever now. :) On purpose I used lots of floral fabrics, little animals and little girls. :) When Ava was a baby, her nursery was red, pink and aqua, so I kept with that same color palette, but adding gray. I used Annie's Farm Stand pink circle buds for backing and Lecien basics for the binding. I'll... Continue reading

A few weeks ago we celebrated Ava's 4th Birthday. As most of you know, she came after 4 boys in our family, so of course I loved the opportunity to do something girly here. We keep a lot of birthdays simple around here, so it's been since she turned 1 that I put together a party for her. To be quite honest, I tend to get a little overwhelmed with the party planning process, so I'm generally just fine with the simple option. However, with Ava being 4, she's very aware and definitley wanted a party. I totally admit, I... Continue reading

Not only is Little Red Riding Hood here, so am I! As much as I love the many aspects of blogging, I really needed to give myself permission to take it off my list for a while. Once I did that for myself, it was nice to focus on my family and a few other important matters. One of which was completing my 3rd fabric line for Riley Blake....but it's not quite time for sharing that, but soon. :) Meanwhile, I've been anticipating the arrival of my Little Red Riding Hood line and she's finally here! I couldn't be happier... Continue reading
