Flower Power Table Runner

Bright, vibrant, and lively… these words describe our new Spring Batiks! Oh, they are lovely to be sure. The Daisy Confetti print reminds me of the flowers popular in the 70’s hence, Flower Power Table Runner. Wahoo!

American Celebration

It is such a thrill for me to see my painted design come to life in the form of a fabric line.  Each one becomes an instant favorite with me, but I think that the newest,  American Celebration is really my favorite! When Teri asked me to design another Americana themed line, I was ready, paintbrush in hand!  As most folks around here know, I’m very Red, White ...

Cartouche Embroidered Pillow

  I really do love to embroider.  It's just so relaxing to me, and these days I haven't been in much of a sewing mood, but embroidery...well that's a different story.  My first embroidery patterns I did for Smooth Sailing were very well received to my surprise and I even had requests to make some more patterns.  So, that's just what I did!  Using Rhapsody of Reds as my muse I was really inspired to design an embroidery for a decorative pillow.  So I took some of the main circular motifs from the Rhapsody & Cartouche prints and had fun with the placement of my design, by deliberately having the motifs cut off.

My latest collection Rhapsody of Reds is finally out!

When I first designed Symphony of Blues I never dreamt it would be as popular as it was.  And due to all the love it received, we as a collective at CT thought how great that collection would be updated in a new color palette, and reds instantly came to mind!  And so Rhapsody of Reds was born (or re-born depending on how you look at it).

Santa Stitchery

When the book Stitch it for Christmas by Lynette Anderson came in, I volunteered to make the Santa Stitchery.  So, during a long, sunny weekend this summer at the beach, I was stitching away on Santa!  I finished the stitchery during the weekend, and then finished the project when I got back home.  I had a grand time doing this project; it’s just a perfect fit for the Wire Table Stand, and the Tree ...

Happy Haunting

It’s October and Halloween is fast approaching. I just pulled out and dusted off my Halloween decorations and found my Through the Seasons Autumn Table Runner. I had forgotten how cute that pattern is! I did my to test the pattern so I don’t have it in our cute All Hallows Bash collection like the one in our catalog but it’s still pretty awesome just the same. I also did the Winter one as well and will enjoy pulling that out after Thanksgiving. I do love this time of year, so many fun decorations to pull out and visit each year, and of course add to! Here it is in the All Hallow Bash fabrics:
