I think the retro trees are my favorite!!! Way to go Alice! It's perfect for Fall.

Scrapbooks Meet Fabric

I've seen it more and more lately. Scrapbooking companies are hitting the fabric industry. I suppose with the digital age, scrapbook paper designers are taking a hit. So.... move to fabric. I'm sure quilting won't go digital, even if you can design your own fabric these days.

Here are a few I've noticed:

BasicGrey designs with Moda
October Afternoon with Riley Blake
Cosmo Cricket


Prima with Baum.

Welcome scrapbookers!!!

Deja' Vu: Sanae Does it Again!

You remember THIS post? Yeah it's all about my favorite fabric of all time, which is Arcadia by Sanae for Moda.

Well, FYI, it's ALL GONE! I can't find it anywhere. I have 2 yards, which I will probably NEVER use because then I won't have it anymore.

Fast forward to TODAY! Sanae has a new line for Moda called Chrysalis. It's not grabbing me like Arcadia, but it's at least close. I love it! Check it out HERE.

Up Close and Personal: Kate Spain's Central Park

I hunted down the close-ups of Central Park by Kate Spain. They were on the Moda site. Go figure. Here are a few of them. To see the rest, go HERE.

You know what I love about these? They are considered "children's novelty" but they are classy and edgy with a touch of modern. I could see me using these as well as using them in a nursery. I love that! Way to go Kate!!!

Next, we have these fabulous, pre-made labels to add to your designs! They come in 3 Colorways AND they each have enough room to turn under the edges of your label. I love that!

And last, the new zippers. I already posted about them HERE, but I had to have 3 things for my opening line to make sense. Hee hee!

Hi Everyone!!!

Yeah, I've been MIA. I helped my friend at a fair booth and it was CRAZY!! I sold a bunch of my adjustable aprons and some hair flowers. I had a great time, but I couldn't believe the work it took or the energy it zapped. But, I did take some pictures for you guys!!

Do you see that lovely buffet? It used to be a yucky, brown, sad buffet. I'll see if I took a before to show you in a future post.

Anyway, I'm back and ready to get back to all things fabric!
