A New Stitch in Town


I just discovered these adorable kits from AMH designs and have just started carrying them in the store.  The projects all take around 2 hours and each one is more beautiful than the next!  Great to take on while the frost persists or give to a friend with a beautiful tea as the perfect gift to get through the season’s worst.


The Pretty Side of Snow


So now that we are averaging a storm a week, and the sidewalks are building white walls that are growing higher than walls.  Why not get some inspiration from it all and make this too gorgeous bag from the Weekend Designer.  Yes, spring is far away but think how pretty this would be with all the little outfits that we dream of wearing sooner than later.



So Sew easy Ipad case

I just loved this I pad case that I spotted on the Charm Stitch Blog.  It is such a cute modern way to make a case and can be applied to any size.  I am itching to make one in one of the new Amy Butler fabrics.

Girl Scouts get Crafty!

This was a large group of girl scouts – so I made a house call and brought all the goodies for the girls to sew and make their own little pillows.  Each pillow was as cute and unique as the little designers.

Come and Silk Screen at Make & Mingle!

Can’t wait for this tomorrow!  A lot of sign-up so I am sure we will do it again.


Song of the Week!

Hey everyone! This week we’ve got a song from a recent album that just came out last Tuesday. The band is called Tennis, and the album is called Cape Dory. The band has a cool beach-y/summery sound. I’d recommend their album to anyone who likes to listen to music while working or studying!

A Sis Boom Surprise!

Waiting for the new order of fun and fabulous Chronicle books to come in, along with an adorable selection of journals and novelties. However, by far the book that I am excited about most (also to come with a super cute assortments of her own journals and cards) is Jennifer’s Girl’s World.  We all know that it is going to be full of glorious inspiration!




A Salute to our Beloved Brits

This is a new version of my “Brit Bag” that I have been making now for over 3 years.  I  made these bright little guys using pretty little prints in anticipation of the big wedding bash coming up this year. Come and pick one up for a little royalty in your purse.



A Yummy Surprise!

Last week I got the most amazing gift from one of my favorite student’s mom, Beth Munroe.  Beth happens to be an amazing artist who also shares my distinctive obsession with the good ol’ fashioned cupcake!  I do mine in fabric and here is the beauty that she created in oils.  I love love love it!

Check out some of her artwork on her website.
