A huge shout out to @thepumpkinandbunny for making this dress. Fun fact - I designed this fabric. It's my biggest career dream to become a surface pattern designer. When Charlie's birthday came around, I knew I wanted to give her an heirloom, something she could pass down to her children and grandchildren. This pattern represents her happy and silly personality, the way she brightens up our life daily. And even if designer was never attached to my name, mother would always be enough. #jkinstachallenge
Perhaps you may have or have not noticed the subtle hints I have been posting lately or maybe you are just wowed by my great photography... 😉
As I hit the "one week to go" mark, it is time not to be so subtle.
Life is a journey, we do things because we are supposed too or have too. Every so often you get lucky enough to be able to do something because you have a passion and this becomes a dream come true. Now is the time for my passion and my dream to come true. As of June 1, I will humbly, proudly and with much excitement become the new owner of Sewing Arts Center aka that Blue Building on Pico! I have an amazing staff who is staying with me, a brother from another mother who is staying through the end of the year, to help with the transition.
We will still be having all the great Baby Lock and Bernina machines, the incredible Teddy in service, all the wonderful creative classes, embroidery services etc... the one new addition, lots and lots of cotton! And I mean LOTS.... including the complete collection of Hoffman solids!
Some business news: to make room for all our great new fabric, we need to make space. Soooooo starting June 1, all existing fabrics will be 40-50% off as well as specials on machines, notions, cabinets etc... Come by, say HI and who will be my first $1??? There might even be freebies 😉

Here's a second project that @chelengeorge made for my #epp booth at #quiltmarket . Isn't it like the cutest thing you've ever seen? She used @abbyglassenberg's Tilly Turtle pattern. Abby's like the 👸🏻 of plushie/stuffed animal patterns, so if y'all are ever looking to make a critter for your space, you should definitely check her out. So thank thank thank you Michele for sharing your talent with us and sending him to market!! You rock! 🤗

In my happy mail from @misterdomestic I received pieces of these beautiful & interesting fabrics by @patbravodesign which are from her collection #indiebohemefabrics If you chk out #eppparty you can see some made into hexies for block 1. My favourite would have to be the bottom right floral (the beautiful dark purply background hasn't shown up in this photo). Funny, years ago I wasn't that fussed about florals! Thanks so much for these Mathew. 👏🙂💕#patbravodesigns#artgalleryfabrics
I can finally show you my first bigger finish and first time free motion quilting! I delivered it to its' very special new family in California so now I can talk about it. It was a lot more work that the baby blankets but totally worth it. I love the way it turned out, even with all its imperfections. A side note 📝, Art Gallery fabrics are wonderful to sew with and sleep under. ❤️#catsandquilts#iwanttoquiltallthethings#forestfloorfabrics 💚 #artgalleryfabrics @saydria @fatquartershop @artgalleryfabrics
