Friday we leave for NYC.  I haven’t been there in about three years.  On tap for the weekend is the following:

  • Brooklyn Brewery tour & happy hour festivities
  • Yankees game (I’m either way on this, but excited to see the new stadium)
  • Hopefully some shopping in SoHo and/or Brooklyn.  I’m not a 5th Ave type of girl. 
  • Being a tourist 

Another Favorite Fabric Designer June 29, 2010

Last fall I was obsessed with the Gobble Gobble line.  It was adorable and didn’t scream THANKSGIVING!!!  It is a great fall line with strong colors and details with the option of traditional fall decor.  Thank you Sandy Gervais

Well, she did not disappoint again this year.  For your Thanksgiving feast you can incorporate her line Awesome into your holiday buffet.  It is very similar to Gobble Gobble with a few tweaks for a fresh updated look.  Considering I bought all the of the Gobble Gobble charm packs I could, I expect to do the same with Awesome.  Fat Quarter Shop, can you run a special on them?? 

Ring in the Holiday season with the blend of Adoring fabrics.  I love that Sandy took traditional red and green and added in cream and blues for accents.  The fabrics are not overly Christmas, but suttle enough to be left out slightly after the Holiday has passed.  Too bad I don’t have a dining room table or else this line would be used for a cute tablerunner. 

July is seriously starting this week, leaving only a few months to get the Christmas and Holiday projects complete.  Time to get busy and shopping.  Thanks again Sandy Gervais for creating wonderful lines that could be used outside of the Holiday season.


Craft Shows June 28, 2010

Over the weekend I was working an event for my grown up job.  Little did I know there was an arts & crafts vendor section with the event.  I walked over because I’m thinking about adding a few to my schedule over the next year…like I need more to do.  The area was quite large and a great variety of stuff.  I spoke to a couple of vendors and asked them questions, so I’m pretty confident I want to apply for that one next year.  The corporate tent next to my work tent went through over 600 giveaway items in an hour.  Over all the event is very well attended. 

Just wondering if there is any advice fellow craft show people can share with me.  I’ve never done one and want to make sure it’s worth my time and sewing effort.

This week has been a complete whirlwind.  My mom underwent major surgery on Monday and it took longer than anticipated.  We received a diagnosis we didn’t want, but will get through.  After a long day and a few stiff drinks I finally passed out.  We have had nasty storms come through over the last few days.  The woke me up with a wonderful light show at 3:30 am. 

Tuesday was a long day at the hospital visiting Mom all day.  Luckily I could go home and rest.  Sewing mania began after that. 

Everyday this week I have woke up and started sewing.  What a wonderful feeling to be productive early in the am.  Today I even managed to get some stuff on Etsy. 

Lots more to come though, big announcements possibly.  NO BABIES, just other stuff. 

Things I’m working on:

  • Girly quilt as a custom order on Etsy
  • More potholders, starting my Christmas/Holiday versions soon
  • Yo-Yos for holiday gifts, these kept me sane on Monday. 
  • Groovy flower quilt for Etsy.  Stash buster!! 

Have a great creative week.  Check back next week for some news, hopefully!


Congrats!! June 22, 2010

I had a wonderful Dad. One of my favorite memories – Dad would sweep the side walk for the entire block so it would be safe for all the kids to roller skate on.

Jan…please email me at quiltytherapy @ to claim your prize.  I will get them sent out this week.


Happy Father’s Day June 20, 2010

To submit a comment. I won’t be at work because my mom is having surgery on Monday, but I will still have my coworkers vote.
