Announcements are always fun

Hello! There are a few things going on today, and I had to make sure you knew what's going on!

So, Let's Pretend Fabric is out, and it's so fun to see you sewing! A lot of sites have been interested in doing interviews on the line, and The Fat Quarter Shop has posted an interview on their Jolly Jabber blog. I'm talking about my process in designing fabric, and all that fun stuff. I don't really talk about that much, and so I love interviews like this where I can talk about it a bit more directly.


Also, have you heard about QuiltBLISS? It's a new Modern Quilt retreat here in Utah up in the gorgeous mountains coming up this January! I'm a guest speaker  and I'm going to be talking about the bliss (and blood sweat and tears) of designing a collection and all the aspects of color, design, and all the ins and outs of putting together a fabric line. I'm sure we'll do some embroidery in there too:) It will be so inspiring! Registration begins tomorrows, so don't miss it. I absolutely love to meet with people in person, and I'd love to spend the weekend with all of you!

And if you are in for a giveaway, there is a giveaway going on right now here., which includes this favorite paper puppet theater toy. Perfect for rainy summer days! It's just a happy day all around!


And on a personal note, my pregnancy is getting less and less at risk, which is such a miracle!! I've been getting regular ultrasounds, and today I got to see him again. Chubby cheeks and everything. What a handsome little guy. I'm so in love!! I still have NO idea when I'll have this baby (but I've never really been able to be set on a due date) so it's time to start getting ready just in case.  It's been 7 years since we've had a boy, so it feels like we are almost starting over again. Which really, makes it so fun!

Have fun clicking around today, and thanks for yesterday's suggestions on photosharing. Maybe having a Pinterest Board just for fabric projects would be the best, so you can share them in a space that we are all on all the time. I love FLICKR, it's just I'm not really on there like I used to be.

Happy Tuesday! xoxo
