Hard at work!

The Hubs was in Germany all last week, so I didn't appear online so much...I got a little taste of what it's like to run this circus as a "single" parent for seven days. All you mommas and papas out there raising kiddos alone, you have my utmost respect.



We were so excited to have him home this weekend, and I was able to do some "designing" while T had some much-needed rough and tumble "daddy time". I still feel a little foolish when I say "designing" fabric or call myself a "designer"....I feel like a gal who loves to illustrate and just realized how fun it is to put my draw'rings on fabric!! woot! Anyhooooo....here are the latest designs I'll be adding to the shop...




"Hallow-eenies" was a super-quickie that I came up with so I could enter Spoonflower's Fabric of the Week contest this week. The winner receives 5 yards of fabric FREE and their design is made available for purchse (at Spoonflower cost!!) in the Spoonflower etsy shop for one week! Here's to crossing fingers ;)

And, my sweet blogging/quilting/fabric lovin' friend, Kerri, requested some Humpty Dumpty fabric appearance after she purchased the Humpty Dumpty illustration from my etsy shop. No surprise here, folks....red and aqua make me happy ;) This one is called, "Hedgies and Humpty" and is available for pre-order in the shop!

Finally, I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch because it's not physically here yet, but I have a lovely Janome 6500 on its way to mi casa!!! I found a very good deal from a retired teacher on eBay. After speaking to her on the phone, I'm very excited to get this machine. We'll have to name her, you know. I'll take pictures when she arrives ;) (the machine, not the lady on eBay, you sillies.)

Hope you've done some relaxing this weekend, now GO and be creative! xo
