Summer coming to an end...

Wow... August 19th today, where has the year gone? I can't believe that tomorrow my son officially starts third grade. Seems like yesterday he was just starting pre-school. I get a few weeks of some quiet time with Emma before she starts preschool. I'm looking forward to some girl time alone. In September with them both at school I'll get the chance to work alot more (hopefully). There are lots of creative ideas running around this brain of mine waiting to come out!!!!

Check out these beautiful new fabrics from the FRENCH HAT BOX COLLECTION by Tanya Whelan . Aren't they delicious? Her fabrics are just glorious. I love them all.

This little pillow for Aliza turned out super sweet. Hope she loves it! Maybe one day I will have a camera that will take a decent picture... oh well. I have fabric scraps to remind me =)

Felt, Felt and More Felt!

Something about felt that just makes me a little loopy. Is it the texture? The endless colors? I'm not sure. You can make just about anything out of felt. My latest pins are modified versions of Heather Bailey's pattern 'La Fleur Debris' which I ADORE! So fun and fresh! They are little cupped blossoms that can be worn just about anywhere. I love them pinned on my favorite hat! Where will you pin one?

Bee oooo Weeee OOO.... goes the fire truck! Another felt surprise. A special onesie spoofed up with a fire truck applique. Of course, finished off with ric rac (a vintage staple). Soooo cute!
Both are in my Etsy Store... working on some more dolls this week!
