Guess who's here?


Sample yardage arrived yesterday and I haven't stopped fondling and adoring it...


I broke it up into color groups... just for fun.


I made fun pairings and dreamt of crafty little home projects...


Then I made sweet little stacks...


But most of all, I've spent the last few days making bundles of fabric like this one to send to my sweet and talented sample sewers...


And, speaking of sample sewers, I feel I need to send some love and virtual hugs and kisses to this group of amazing designers who will no doubt make me shine on October 25th...

My mom (a.k.a. MarielizCreations on Etsy) will be making a series of purses and totes with the Fire and Earth colorways. She is already hard at work cutting out lining pieces and interfacing to size in anticipation of the fabric arrival. And she has already received a few pre-orders! Go, mami!! :)

Elizabeth Cranmer (SIL of my sweet friend Daria) is already hard at work designing a brand new quilt and quilt pattern with some of the Petal & Fire fabrics. I've seen a sketch and it is fantastic! Can't wait to see the final product.

Marcea and Janice of AbbeyLane Quilts will be creating a couple of quilts to display at the booth. They will offer the quilt patterns for sale at my booth as well, so if you'll be attending the show you'll have a chance check them out up close & personal!

Heather (a.k.a. thepolkadottotspot on Etsy) is making a series of adorable fabric play balls with a little jingle in the middle. She is a local gal and so sweet and talented! I've seen these cute little balls in person and they are da bomb! We found a way to utilize all 24 fabrics in very cool combos, so stay tuned for these!

Kristen (a.k.a. GocksFrocks) will be making a small collection of stuffies and if they are anything like her clothing designs, they will be immaculately made and oh, so cute! Can't wait to see them!!

Myrinda (a.k.a. Lady M of Sweet*Girl*Boutique) will be outfitting my sweet girl, Candy, in Andalucia style. I've heard talk of Feliz dresses, kimonos, twirl skirts, and even miniature furniture. You go, girl! Can't wait to see what you come up with. Myrinda will be attending market with her sweet girl, Lulu. I'm sure Candy & Lulu will hit it off right away. ;)

Thanks to all of you in advance for all your hard work and dedication. Now go check out these ladies' websites, blogs and Etsy stores. I promise you won't be disappointed!

In the meantime I'll be making clothes, pillows, furniture covers, lampshades and whatever else comes into this crazy head of mine...

    These fabrics are gorgeous! Did you make that ruffle that you used to tie around the fabric stack or is it something I can buy??

  25. Anonymous, that is Michael Miller's ruffle rac in Candy Check. I believe it's available at several online retailers. You can probably google it and find it. It just happens to be a perfect match to a few of my Andalucia fabrics so I had fun incorporating it into some designs.

    Thanks for the question!
