Sew Busy

Wow! Where does the time go? Country Mouse and I have been sew so busy these last few weeks. And I'm going to be honest, it hasn't all been fun, we've been stressy and even a bit neglectful to our furbabies (they don't understand why we have to sew all day!). But on the other hand, we are thrilled and very excited about the things we are working on! I wish I could tell you everything, but I was asked not to reveal all of the details yet. So I must honor that and only tell you what I think won't get us into any trouble. Because being in trouble would just put me over the edge right now.

So here's the deal: We've been sewing items for a booth at the Spring Quilt Market! We are working with a fabric company to showcase one of their new fabric lines and all I can say is that is will be perfect for your sewing room. And to go along with this, we will be debuting our first set of printed patterns! More details to follow soon.

And another exciting event that we will be a part of: The Creative Connection Event. It will be held September 16, 17, and 18 in Minneapolis. Go check out all of the fantastic panelists and speakers (Amy Butler will be there!). We hope to see you there!

Needless to say, there is a never ending to-do list and not enough hours in our day. And I'm not sure that we know the meaning of sewing/life/balance. Oh and one of my coworkers at my office day job told me I looked tired today. What is the best response to that: a) thank you b) you wouldn't understand or c) best to say nothing at all? I've never been quite sure how to respond to that one! 

I have family coming this weekend so I am trying to wrap up a few projects so I can hopefully relax and enjoy their company. Maybe even spend sometime outside of the house, we are supposed to have sunshine and highs in the 70s! I hope Spring has arrived early for you as well!

Glamorous Grey and Fuchsia

It's been rainy all week. 
And although I don't especially care for grey skies, 
I do love grey fabric with a pop of color.

New fabrics from Tanya Whelan's Dolce collection arriving in the shop shortly...

Glamorous floral patterns and geometric shapes. Which one is your favorite? 

And if you need a little sunshine in your day, don't forget to enter our giveaway over at The Bright Side Project!

Above the Sewing Table

Taking a break from sewing, writing, editing, planning, and trying not to go crazy! Just wanted to share with you a delicate paper doily banner, made by my mom (Country Mouse) and I in one of those moments we spared to make something for ourselves.

Oh and be sure to check back on Monday for something you won't want to miss! It will be fun! Hope your week has been filled with sunshine!
