sneak peek of a new collection

About 5 weeks ago I started an online textile design class from Michelle Fifis of Pattern Observer. I’m loving every minute of it and have already learned so much! I can hardly wait to go to SURTEX 2013. That’s a very soft goal I have right now. Wow, I said it! I can’t wait! Now, if only I can make it to SURTEX in NYC this year, so I might actually know what to do when I show in 2013.


I really like where this collection is going. I imagine this being used for little girls dress, or an apon. I love Spring!

Giveaway Winner

#3, Sharon, is the winner of this Giveaway! I had my daughter pick one of the three pieces of papers. Thanks to all who participated!

Hope you all had a good Easter. I know I did. We visited the farm in Idaho. I got to see my 83 year old Grandma ride a horse for the first time in 10 years. She said it was on her “bucket list” of things to do before she dies. Isn’t that amazing! Charlotte also got to go to THREE Easter egg/candy hunts. Lucky girl. I ate way too much this weekend and have started Jillian Michaels “Ripped in 30!” Here’s to hoping I can stick to it!
