Smooches and love to all and thank you to all of my customers for being so patient with me.
I am extremely excited to announce that Liberty Original coffee cozies are now being sold at Seabel's Gourmet Food in Pueblo, Colorado. :)) Woo Hoo!
I am off to get the rest of YOUR orders completed.
Oh, I almost forgot... my 3 year old starting throwing up the day after we got home and my 9 year old 3 days after that. I have never been so thankful for alcohol hand sanitizer in ALL my life!
So, promises for a real post and a picture by the end of the weekend.
Super short post today, but I am posting from COLORADO and having a wonderful time with my sister and her family. I have more exciting news but I will wait until I have a picture to post as well. :))
This past weekend Sew Poshy and I teamed up to become Two Lovely Ladies at our very first show!!! Although there were not very many people in general that came to the show, we had a fabulous time beginning to "learn the ropes." We did meet some wonderful people and got out of the house without the kids for a day!!
Check out my new coffee cozy business cards!! I got them in just in time before the show. I giggle everytime I look at them.
Here is a looksie at some of Sew Poshy's divine goodies. Only she could turn receiving blankets into lollipops and socks/diapers/washcoths into cupcakes!! What a fabulous way to top a baby gift.
My friend Rebecca just started making these adorable hairbows!! She was able to come along with us and add some serious variety to our booth. I guess we have to come up with a new name now?!
Just a couple of pictures of my cozy display. It was quite a bit of work getting ready for the show, but it was so much fun. I can't wait to do another one in the Spring!!
I am off to sew. Muah!
Now I just have to name her... Jewliana? Sarah? Felicity? I just don't know!! Any suggestions?
(So, I am very well aware that I used way too many exclamation points in that post, but I'm just so stinkin' excited)
Lynn is super sweet and always posts the most thought provoking things. She loves to help out a fellow SITSta and provides so many opportunities for networking through her blog. PLUS, she totally has a wire dress form on her blog banner. She had me at, "Hello!"
And three prints from the Chick Blooms line:
I will be posting these new lovelies in my shop tomorrow!! Just thought I would give you a sneak peek tonight!!
Here is a front view of the outfit with the embroidered onesie and little apron skirt. He posed just perfect!! An acting career in the future perhaps?
They are sooooo much fun to design and sew. I try these out on my Starbucks cups to ensure that each one has a perfect fit. If you are like me and can't live without your coffee (sad, but so true... you really don't want to see me before I've had my coffee), this is the perfect accessory for you. Bypass the paper sleeve, go green, and grab this reusable one instead.... fashionable and earth friendly! It is super cute AND no one will accidentally grab your coffee instead of theirs again. Ok, enough of my shameless pitch and on with the pictures.

Baby Lucy Ann's goodies are complete. I know she will keep warm in this blanket made from Art Gallery Fabric's girly girl line. Her monogram and birthday accent the middle of this blankie.
Here is a close up view of Lucy's flower appliqued onesie and her burp cloth appliqued with pink minkee. I added three little tags made from ribbon and ric rac for her to play with as she gets a wee bit bigger.
Aren't they fabulous!!! I have been looking for a wire dress form EVERYWHERE! I tried my luck at our local antique mall and did not find a full size one, but I did find this decorative one. I haven't decided what to name her yet, but I can't wait to have her model one of my Sass Tops or Sweetheart dress.
Here are a few of my smaller dress forms. I am completely in love with these little guys. They will display my originals at craft sales and serve as inspiration for many years to come. The shelf is going to house my embroidery thread. I will be able to see all my colors at a glance.. woot woot! I will definitely post pics when I finish executing all of these ideas for my sewing room!
G is for Geraldine... my dear grandmother. She recently relocated to a nursing home and I hope this makes her smile when she receives it. I miss her more than words can convey and I pray I can see her soon.
Lastly, these lovely feedsacks and chenille bedspread begged me to take them home! Won't these be exquisite baby girl blankets? Purple is such a great fall hue. It can be soft and delicate

Here is my newest shipment of yummy yummy fabric!! I have wonderful things planned in my mind for many projects with this fabric! (I also hope some of you will buy some... hint, hint :)) I am super upset that I am without my embroidery machine at the moment. It was acting up and I hope I get it back SOON!!! I feel so lost and naked (not to mention further behind on orders).
Without further blabber from me, here are the finger licking goods....
Palace Conversation Berry
Spanish Petals Blue
