Fabric and Friday Mish-Mash.

It's Friday. My brain feels like gelatin. But the good news is, I'm going to a little party with my husband's work friends tonight, so I'm sure it's nothing a mojito can't fix.

Speaking of parties, here is the party that is going on in my workspace right now. This is what happens when I try to work with Hendrix there. His favorite thing is to tear apart these pads of post-it notes he found and dump out all my stuff. And I let him. Because it keeps him busy.

Speaking of what I'm working on, here's a sneak peek of my next round of bags. Fall yellows, browns, reds, and deep pinks, all cut and interfaced and ready to be put together. This makes me happy.

Speaking of sneak peeks, have you seen Anna Maria Horner's Innocent Crush line coming out in October? Oh my.

Speaking of fabric I love, I'm getting a ton in the mail, hopefully Monday. I mean, a TON. A lot of it is for a precious little boy's nursery I am helping my friend design. Here's the little scheme for bedding and curtains we came up with. I love it and can't wait to see how the room turns out. (BTW, the upper left looks black and white, but it's really brown and white.)

Speaking of baby rooms, if I were decorating for a new babe, I would use this new line from Ikea- be it a boy or a girl. (Please no one take this to mean I am having a baby. I'm not right now. But I do love this gray house fabric.)

I just realized I have neglected to give you my crafting music lately. Most of you probably don't care, but I think it's fun so whatever. Lately it's been Arcade Fire's The Suburbs and Swell Season's Low Rising. I realize I should probably start listening to obnoxious toddler music for the sake of my child, but I'm probably not going to do that. Maybe he'll just have to grow up with good music taste?
(what a great album cover.)


  1. I feel the urge to go fabric shopping.

  2. I'm jealous of your craft room. I'm using my dining room table. and I have no self healing mat for cutting or ANYTHING. yikes.

  3. Perhaps I see a "Reserved for Stacey" bag in your fall collection :)

  4. Love your blog! Just stumbed upon it and it is so much fun!

  5. LOve the new look of your blog, and oh my fabric makes me happy and you've got some beautiful ones. The house fabric is very fun, oh to have more time for sewing. I love that you can let H make a mess and still create.

  6. Finally checked out your new blog design. Love it.

    Especially your new little signature. Awesome.

    Button grabbed.
