I'm back! I guess you could say we've been super busy. September has been the month of employee weddings, vacations...etc. seeew the Mothership and I are up to our ears in To-Do Lists. We will be back open on selected Sundays in October starting October 4. Seeew today we are installing lighting for our Wool N Harvest Workshop this Saturday...and I'm catching up on all of the new fabric collections we've been receiving in the Shoppe! Yes, there are many! As always, we appreciate it when you shop brick and mortars as that is what keeps new fabric coming in the door.
P.S. Speaking of Tiger Lily, this video came to my mind! You know me and my Pop-Tarts! This one has like...a ba-zillion views! LOL.
I'm going to burst your fabric bubble because none of the collections I'm about to show you...are from Moda.
Gasp! WHAT? How can that be?
Relax. There is plenty of time for the "Moda Show" later on. Variety is the spice of life, and one thing we like to have in the Shoppe is variety! Just looking around the Shoppe right now, from where I'm sitting....I see batiks, flannels, wool, homespuns, 1930's, elegant florals, cheerful brights, children's, a touch of modern and holiday. Never before have we had such a variety.
The first collection I want to show you is of course Tiger Lily by Heather Ross! This collection is darling for your favorite aspiring dancer (look at the little ballerina print) or perhaps she's an optimistic dreamer in the woods, imagining the possibilities? The collection can be used for quilts or to make adorable little dresses. I just have to point out how cute the marching cat with her kittens in tow is. Seeew cute ladies! We know what we are going to make with it, how about you? Any ideas yet?
I absolutely love this next collection but that's only because just like the "Mothership", I love aqua/green/gray combinations. This is a beautiful, unique line called Floral Glamour. We wanted something a bit on the modern side but with a touch of elegance. The end result is our Metro Hoops Quilt Kit.
Isn't it gorgeous? The quilt uses the Quick Curves Ruler which you will need to purchase separately from the quilt kit. Don't forget your backing because we give you a discount when you purchase the backing with your quilt kit! How many of you knew that? The quilting was done by Trisha Hevern who is one of the newest long arm quilters quilting for us. We loved this one seeew much, we just may have to have her quilt our next fun one using these delicious fabrics....
I'll keep you posted on its progress! The quilt will be adorable when finished and guess what? It uses the Quick Curve Ruler too! Seeew you're going to want to grab one of them on your next visit to the Shoppe. It's one of those notions we love because you're going to use it more than once. The "Mothership" has been busy! But...when is she not?
Alexander Henry is also back in the Shoppe. Not only do we have some of their novelty and holiday prints, but we also have Oh My Apple featuring the Chicken In The Kitchen Panel. It makes an adorable door stop or you could use it on your kitchen island. We are going to make one up for Jan's kitchen (they are totally her colors) and show you later on.
Finally for today, I will leave you with new fabrics from Riley Blake Designs. Bloom & Bliss is in the house, and it is everything you could expect from bright fabrics. Bright, cheerful, happy, dreamy...and more. People have asked us to carry their fabrics for a few years now, so we hope they'll be in here shopping these adorable fabrics. If not, we'll put them to good use. LOL.
Alright, that's it from me today. Back to the grind. Enjoy your Sunday and we'll see you Tuesday at 11am for a brand new week!
Stay Seeew-Cial ~ Brian
