I’ve been busy moving my sewing room downstairs into a new space, which gives my 12 and 14-year-old daughters a space of their own. Of course this project bled into every room of our house and turned into a major purge and attic clearing. Whew. I’ve moved my desk and computer into a different room so that it won’t distract me from sewing, but so far, I’m just spending more time at the computer. I’m still thinking about my next idea and looking for meaningful freelance projects. I’m also planning to get back on track with my monthly newsletters soon!
Quilt Market was in St. Louis a few weeks ago, and although I didn’t attend, I heard it was pretty slow. Perhaps it’s time for a change in the industry? My new PAINT collection for Kokka was there and I made these inflatable ottomans again, which are perfect for easy shipping. The fabric here is Brushstrokes in blue/red and Beads in charcoal/natural.
And a few zippered pouches in the Flower pattern.
I also made a larger variation of my Simple Tote pattern with the Brushstrokes fabric in black/natural.
In addition to these cotton/linen blends above, the collection also features three designs in double gauze cotton, including these metallics in the Texture pattern.
Coming to a fabric shop near you soon! See photos of the full collection and colorways.
