Winter Blues?

If you follow me on Twitter you're probably sick and tired of hearing me whine about the weather. I'm one of those people who simply cannot wait for the first snow fall. I truly enjoy going out on freshly fallen snow and getting silly with my kids, but that feeling of joy lasts about a week or so and then I get sick of it and want to run screaming in the other direction (which would probably be South). Just look at what I have to look forward to this week...

Brrrrr.... If I still lived in Costa Rica, I'd be looking at this all week...

Ahhhhh... beautiful! Which reminds me, my aunt and uncle, who currently live in Atlanta, GA, flew out to Costa Rica for vacation yesterday. I am green with envy but wish them an amazing time! Some day, some day...

So, how about something to brighten up our days? A few weeks ago, the talented ladies at Sew4Home emailed me a concept board containing about a dozen tutorials they planned to make with Flora & Fauna and I just about fell out of my chair! Not only were the projects gorgeous, as they usually are on their site, but they were just concepts, which means that they were drawn up on the computer using just small JPGs of the fabric designs. I was instantly blown away by the creativity and graphics talent!

Now it is finally here!


Starting today, through the entire month of February and into the first week of March, you can check out these gorgeous kitchen projects (free tutorials!) made with Flora & Fauna over at Sew 4 Home. They're kicking off the show with these Everyday Reversible Placemats...


In case you want to sew along and are planning your fabric purchases ahead, here is a list of the fabrics they will be using for all their upcoming projects. Check out the full list of projects at the bottom of this page.

Wondering where to buy Flora & Fauna? We have a list of national and international retailers on our website... just scroll down to the bottom of this page.

Also, our new MODKID patterns are now in stock! We have them for sale on our website but also strongly encourage you to shop from your favorite online or local retailer. There is a list on the bottom of this page.

And finally, how about some giveaways? Hawthorne Threads is giving away a Hummingbird Quilt pattern, and one of my testers, Carol Plaster, is giving away a MODKID Dress Bags pattern.

Here's wishing you bright and happy days ahead...

  5. Oh Patty, I am so sorry. I have been complaining about the snow (Again!!!!) here in Northern Ca, yet I know it is nothing compared to Illinois in January. When we lived there, I truly thought I would die every January because it was so flippin' cold and nasty! Hang in there. Spring is only a few (long!) months away and it will be worth it.

    I'm ordering a scrub cap in your fabric. This is another great site for scrub caps. Her quality is excellent and reps your fabric well!
