Spring Showers make me want to Sew!



I don't know about your neck of the woods, but the Midwest is cloudy, wet and the hope of spring is more of a tease right now. What do you do with a cloudy day.... you sew of course!

I'd love to share some of my newest pincushions. The one above features a bird print. I can hardly pass one by without falling in love. With all the spring birds back in town, I just had to celebrate their beautiful songs. If they can chirp through a late spring snow storm, who am I to complain?!

I just love all the fun prints available right now. This crochet print is adorable! Its designed by Anita Jeram for Clothworks. Its called "Having a Ball". I just love all the bright colors. I added a big purple button and tied it up with perle cotton. 


This bright ball of sunshine is full of fun and cheer! Its comes with a pretty butterfly and white flower pin. I keep coming back to this fun group of prints. I love how they mix a traditional quilt pattern and today's trends. This print also comes in navy/aqua and red/pink prints. I'll have to make those up next!

I have a few other goodies to show you. I have some fun scrap baskets and a couple of super functional quilt clip containers. You can get them with our without clips.

If you loved the pincushion, you'll really love this basket. It features 2 kitties. You can request your favorite from this collection by Mia Charro. Soooo cute!

This is one of my all time favorite prints. Its by Cathe Holden and it is so pretty, soft and is filled with scrappy nostalgia. This items are hard to keep in stock, but as long as I have the fabric, I'll keep making them. 

 Here is another print from that same collection! Its so pretty and makes me think of dinner at Grandma's. It also comes in a soft blue print. I can also make a clip container or pincushion. Just ask!

I really think this print is special. I designed my scrap baskets just for big motifs like this pretty swan. Its designed by Lisa Dolson for Dashwood Studio. It looks like the print is metallic gold, but its not. Its simply just a super pretty gold print.

Well, that's it for today. Its going to keep raining this week, so I have lots of plans for more sewing. I'm going to make a baby quilt for my niece's first child. I found this sweet woodland print in earthy rusts, soft peaches and creamy whites. I will share it with you next. 

I rarely make quilts even though I love the process. 

Hope you are getting lots done before it's time to head out to the garden. So many quilters are also great at flowers and veggies. All that beauty and creativity cannot be contained! We just have to do it all!

Be well and talk soon!

Love is in the Air!

 I just love Valentines Day. I feel full of love! I am so lucky to have an awesome hubby who supports all my creative chaos. I love that spring is just around the corner. I love that I have the best job in the world, I get to make things for you!

I made this pretty heart pincushion last year. The paper pattern is from CenterStreetQuilts. She was kind enough to allow me to use her pattern to make things from my Etsy Shop Fiberluscious

This is my Wish pincushion heart. Its made with hand dyes Pendleton wool. It has some sweet embroidery and it comes with 2 decorative pins. Its one of my all time favorites. 

I can't forget to share my Hearts and Flowers 10 Pin Assortment. It comes with 5 heart pins, 5 flower pins on a wool heart mini pincushion. You can order packaged in either a clear round box, or a white glossy box. I wrap it up with a big organza bow. They make a great gift for someone special in your life. They can be used to decorate your pincushions, tack a fun note on your bulletin board or just add one to a inspiration board of scrap book page. 

I have some new baskets in my shop too. I think you'll like them. 

Here is a little basket and pincushion made from the same fabric collection. The prints are from Cathe Holden. They are soooo cute with tons of vintage charm. 

Hope you have lots of love in your life! 

Happy Sewing!

A Tiskit a Tasket I have new Baskets!

I love a good scrap basket. This is another Lori Holt Vintage Happy 2 basket with a new lining. The 1st one I made was so nice, I made it twice.
Here is another basket in a vintage inspired print by Cathe Holden for Moda. I LOVE IT!!! The whole "Vintage Soul" collection is adorable. I used it inside and out. This basket is in a print called crochet sampler. Watch my shop for lots of fun new items using these prints.

Vintage Soul Scrap Basket

I have a modern basket in a fabric by Giucy Giuce called Sleuth. Its a cheater print, (gosh I hate that term!). Its by Andover fabrics. This part of the print is an ombre print. I used the blues section. It also includes a bit of dark teal and a lovely muted purple. 



This next scrap basket is in Vintage Soul, in Rainbow Floral. It looks just like a patchwork of bark cloth. I love it!!! I did some straight line quilting along each section of the print. There are more colors in this print, but I was drawn to these luscious reds, pinks and oranges. 
I have lots more baskets in my Etsy Shop here. I hope you stop by and take a look.  
It has been snowing a lot here in Wisconsin. Last week we got 12 inches in one day. Then it just kept going and going every day. Did I mention it was also near or below zero the rest of the week? I have been outdoors for too many hours. I hate it when snow keeps me from making new items. But, I love snow too. Today it was raining and snowing and warm, (well, 39 degrees), Now everything is melting and water is just piling up everywhere. Gotta love winter here in the Midwest!
When I get back to my studio, I will be sharing lots of new items, I hope! I have more prints from the Vintage Soul Collection. I got mine from SFabricsandDesigns on Etsy. 
I promise to share my favorite shops with you soon. I have so many!

Well, I hope this winter has you sewing up a storm. The fun kind of storm that is!
Happy Creating!
