Foxy Lady

It's rare, but sometimes Country Mouse and I get the chance to make something for ourselves.  I fell in love with this Foxy Lady in Mollie Makes and last weekend Country Mouse surprised me with her! Handmade surprises are the best, thanks Mom!

The Creative Connection Event

Country Mouse and I attended The Creative Connection Event this past weekend where we were surrounded by like-minded creative types.  It was an unforgettable few days! We finally met many of our online friends and had lots of previous customers stop by our booth to tell us what joy their ironing board cover brings them.  We love seeing those happy smiles! 

Above is one of our treasured pics with Tif (Dottie Angel) who we were truly giddy to meet! She has the most lovely book out right now, we highly recommend you pick up a copy.  Country Mouse and I normally share a book, but this was one we knew we must each have our very own copy. 

A picture of our booth, this was before I figured out I needed to use a bit of flash in this lighting environment so I apologize for the yellow tint.

I took an Inspiration Board class with Leslie from A Creative Mint.  For one of the boards she challenged us to use a color we do not care for.  
My color was red, I don't think I own anything red...

The rest of our pictures are of booths of the following vendors who are all as sweet as pie:

We cross our fingers that they decide to keep the event in the Twin Cities area again, although it would be fun to travel somewhere else wouldn't it?  Country Mouse and I would have a hard time leaving our fur babies though...
We do hope that you get the chance to be around like-minded crafty people for an entire weekend, if that's the kind of people you enjoy, it's a real treat!

Friends and Sunshine

 This weekend was spent with the sun and friends. Both were good distractions. But now it's time to get ready for The Creative Connection Event.  We hope to see you there!

New Fall Fabrics

Hello Friends! We just wanted to pop in and show you the new fabrics that arrived.  It's always a happy day when pretty fabrics make their way into the sewing room, isn't it? We are big fans of Joel Dewberry's fabrics and his newest collection - Heirloom - might just be one of our most favorites yet.  It's perfect for transitioning from late summer to fall, don't you think?  
We are busy getting ready for the Creative Connection Event here in St. Paul September 16 - 17, are you coming? We'd love to see you there! Also, we are giving away an ironing board cover over at one of our favorite blogs Going Home to Roost.  Please stop by before it closes on Thursday! We hope your September is off to a fabulous start!
