A Few Things Going to Market

Did you think I’d be on that airplane right now?  Nope not until tomorrow at the early hour of 6:30 Pacific Time. Minneapolis here we come!

Just have to share a few new things before I leave!

My new fabric line comes with the most wonderful pre-quilted SOFT fabric!  I’ve used it for so many things! My friend Anne made this little pink jacket for our booth.  It’s just the sweetest! It’s a pattern from Oliver & S.  I parted with a few vintage glass buttons for the finishing touch.  It’s so adorable and you can see it in our booth, along with the little plaid skirt that goes with it!  The jacket is designed by Liesl from Oliver & S. She’s a new Moda designer too!  It’s going to be so exciting to see all the new fabric lines!

My friend Robin, who is the machine embroidery queen, made this banner for my booth!  It’s out of the same pre-quilted fabric. Isn’t it the greatest?

“Scooter Pie” is my newest petite pattern!  She’s going to market with me too and she’s so excited!  We’ll be selling Scooter Pies at Sample Spree along with the patterns. 

I have lots of Scooter Pie’s so if you’re at Sample Spree you can pick out your favorite!

…and I’m even bringing her friend Allie!

We’ve made them out of so many fabrics, Fresh Cottons, French General, and Lily & Will, so get ready.  It will be hard to choose!

Bitty Owl is my newest pincushion.  She’s coming to market too!  She’s made out of wool of course, but I just couldn’t resist making her out of my fabric!  She works either way!

I’ll be listing new patterns today so be sure and check our web site later!  Brigette will be running Bunny Hill while I’m gone, so she’ll take good care of you!

More news!  Jeniffer at Shabby Fabrics has re-made Rabbits Prefer Chocolate in the new Astor Manor fabric line from Moda.  It looks almost exactly like the original!  If you didn’t get to make it when it first came out, you have another chance!  I just couldn’t believe it when I first saw it!  I can hardly tell them apart! It’s a new block of the month at Shabby Fabrics!

And last but not least for today, I got my sweetie Mooch kitty a pretty new collar and tag.  Just in case she escapes or something while I’m gone. It’s diamond studded.  Only the best for her!

I’ll be buying some treats at Sample Spree so we can have a giveaway when I get back!  Have a great week everyone!
