little apples

Look what just arrived in my shop this week.  Little Apples from Aneela Hoey.  She is such a great fabric designer!  I met her at Quilt Market last spring and she was giving everyone fake tattoos of the girl in the red coat.  I loved that idea!  At my shop you can have a fake Hello Kitty tattoo :)

You can see why I love her fabric so much!  Just my colors.  Moda always has the best booths at Market and make them so fun to visit.  Don't you just love this quilt hanging behind Aneela?  Looks like one I would love to make. 

Aneela also has some whimsical embroidery.  I  personally love the doll and doll blanket.  Even though I don't play dolls any more (except when asked), they look so irresistible to sew up!

And finally!  You are invited to come by my shop this week for my Grand Opening celebration. Beginning Friday, Sept. 23, 24, and 25th.  It will be 3 days of FOOD, FUN, and FABRICS!  Plus lots of giveaways, and a free sewing class all day on Saturday.  I'll see you there!

the tube

 Meet Melissa.  She made a pillowcase for her girls.  And had so much fun doing it!  She actually jumped up and down when she finished sewing (don't hate me Melissa, you were just too cute :)

She actually made two pillowcases in one class.  And picked out the funnest fabrics!  I love the "Aren't you just the tweetest!" by Cosmo Cricket.  It looks perfect for a pillowcase.  And I love the matching yellow band, it coordinates them perfectly.

To date, Melissa has actually made 3 pillowcases.  At my last count anyway.  If you don't want to miss out on the pillowcase sewing excitement, there is another class coming up:

my signs

If you haven't been by my store yet, or just don't live near by, I wanted to show you my fabulous signs.  I am so excited and proud how they turned out.

I think they really stand out and catch your eye on my little side of the street.  This is the front window, where you can see right in to my cutting table.

This is my side window that can be seen along the F Street side of the building.  The sun shines brightly through this window all day.  So the blinds always need to stay closed.

And my little sign over the side entry door.  This door is always locked, though.  Come around to the front, please. Come around and say hello!

children at play

I did a little sewing for my shop. I love this fabric and had to make pillowcases to display for my upcoming sewing class.

Aren't these fabrics just the sweetest! I know I've shown you this collection before, it's obviously one of my fav's. And the pillowcase makes a perfect gift for that person who has everything! You know Christmas will be here before you know it.

This sewing class is being offered twice this month. You can take a date time class, or evening.
