Giveaway winner + NEW table place cards

I am continually stunned by the support I get through this blog. Your comments were so unbelievably kind and funny and just downright nice. Thank you for being a part of this super fabulous journey that I'm taking.

With the help of good old Random Number Generator, I've selected a winner who will get 1 yard of fabric of any of my patterns.
Congratulations to: Tootles. Her dream is: living in the mountains in cabin (filled with quilts) and being a steward for our natural resources. Congratulations and I'd love to see what you make with the fabric!

And just in time for holiday parties and dinners, I have something new in the store! Now you can pretty-up your holiday table with 'Print your Own' place cards featuring wee birdies and tiny chairs.

Partnership with Kaufman Fabrics | Giveaway!

At long last I can share my BIG, BIG, BIG news!!! I've been absolutely on pins and needles and can finally tell you about the SUPER exciting stuff that's been going on here. Drum roll please....

Some of my designs have been licensed by Kaufman Fabrics and my very first collection for them will be making it's debut in Spring 2010.

Wahooo!!! Wahooo!!! Wahooo!!! Can you believe it?!? Bolts and bolts and bolts of my fabric rolling off the presses next year! :) I am so incredibly excited and proud. And even though I've known for a few months, I'm frankly still a bit in shock. Starting in April 2010, retailers can start placing their orders and the fabric will hopefully be in stores soon after that! I'm pretty sure will totally dork out and shed a few tears the first time I walk into a fabric shop and see bolts of my designs on the shelves.

As soon as the design selection process is finalized with Kaufman, I can let you know exactly which specific patterns will be part of the Spring collection. AND I'm finalizing the colors on some NEW FUN fabrics that I'll be adding to the Etsy store very soon.

Wow... I can hardly believe it's been only a year since I first put my first fabric designs up for sale on Etsy. 11/6/08 was the day I put my fabric up for sale. And here I am a year later and my dreams of becoming a licenced fabric designer are coming true. When I left the corporate world I wasn't sure I could make this happen but lookie at what I did!!

So in celebration of my extreme good fortune, I'd love to give away a yard of fabric (in any one of my patterns) to someone! Just leave me a comment (make sure there is a way to contact you) and tell me what YOUR big dream is. What's the thing you stay awake at night dreaming about? :) I'll pick a winner by random on 11/18 and I can't wait to hear from you.

Thanks for all your support and encouragement over the last year!

NEW Website -

Well it's taken some time, but at long last I have a new website!! (And new headers for the blog and for my Etsy store will be up before end of the week...) Take a look at the website and I'd love to hear what you think. The main purpose for the site is to showcase my patterns and designs and make it easy for potential partners to get a sense of my style.

For the last few months, in addition to working on new designs, I've been quietly working very hard on getting my designs licensed and getting broader distribution plans in place for my fabric. More to come on that in the next few days! So stay tuned for some super exciting news!!

Holiday Fabrics in the store at long last

I'm so excited to announce 5 new fabric designs for the holidays have just been added to the store.

All 5 of the patterns are printed in a lovely red and a sophisticated chartreuse green. They feature little patterned swans, trees and ornaments with a modern flair. I hope you can find holiday projects galore to use them for. I stitched up a holiday stocking using the Holiday Joy and Reindeers and added a ribbon border. I'd love to hear what your crafting/sewing plans are for holiday gifts this year!
