Get your stitch on!

These have been in the works for such a long time and I'm so glad to finally be able to release them out into the crafty world. Two new crewel embroidery patterns are now in the shop for $6 each.  If you've never tried crewel embroidery these are perfect for starting out and it's SO fun, I love stitching with wool! Thanks to the very kind Virginia of Gather Here and her crewel students for testing these out. The pdf patterns come with tons of great info, stitching charts and diagrams and also include sizes and colors for regular embroidery and tapestry embroidery if crewel isn't your thing! I can't wait to see what you crafty people do with these and hope you enjoy stitching them up just as much as I did!

Introducing "Hey! That's Swell!"

I'm so happy to finally be able to share with you something I've been working on for SUCH a long time! I've been working with Cloud9 Fabrics since last summer on my very first collection of fabric. I still can't quite believe that I was given the opportunity to do this and have to thank Cloud9 from the bottom of my heart for the experience! And the fact that the whole collection will be organic cotton means so much to me. I'm so excited about how the whole collection came together and I can't wait to start sewing with it this summer when it hits stores. I'm especially thrilled by the two project panels we created. They're seriously packed with projects that are perfect for beginning sewers and the experienced sewers who just wanted to whip up something cute and fast! So, if you want to sew with me too talk to your local quilt shop and tell them to order it! Without further ado, here are the prints in the collection:
