Please, say it isn't so!

We were thrown into Amelia's last week of preschool as soon as we returned from Quilt Market.

Amelia loves going to school to "do crafts", play, etc. and we love the time to truly devote to getting projects done at work. I'll miss her preschool time and it looks like I need to get ready for a busy summer with little Miss Amelia around quite a bit more!

Last Wednesday Amelia had her Songfest at school so Mom and I watched her and the other kiddos sing cute songs with all of their fun actions and loud voices. It was a gorgeous day so we took the time to grab some fun photos afterwards with Amelia. Don't they look wonderful?!!! Amelia was wearing an adorable dress made out of mom's first line of fabrics called Flights of Fancy for Michael Miller Fabrics. Our friend Jenn made the dress for us last year for Quilt Market and it is nice that she is still being able to wear it this year.

Her last day of school was on Friday and I made sure to grab a quick photo of her with her teacher Miss Kim. I can't believe my little girl will be in Pre-K next year!

Time sure does fly by fast - time to try and take things a little slower and enjoy life, family, and friends.

We're Back.....

and catching up on work, Amelia's last week of school, and the list goes on! We had such a wonderful time in Pittsburgh debuting mom's 2nd line of fabrics called Summer Soiree. The lovely Patty Young took this amazing photo of me and mom - I had to borrow it since the majority of the photos we took didn't pass our strict approval standards!

We had a smaller space for this market, but mom did an amazing job packing a nice punch! It was so encouraging to see people stop in their tracks and go on and on about the amazing design space.

Some of my favorite things in the booth space were the different handbags sewn by Simone and the clutch below is going to be tough to return to her. I swoon gray and yellow so this clutch is a perfect accessory for me - and you know how much I love my accessories!

This is one of the many items in the booth that would stop people in their tracks - an amazing piece of artwork created by mom with her Summer Soiree fabric collection. This artwork was inspired by a bouquet of flowers that Michael Miller sent to mom last August when she broke her arm. Thankfully her arm has healed tremendously and she is back to sketching, sewing, etc. as if it never happened - hallelujah!

I'll work to have a 2nd post highlighting other friends and spaces from Quilt Market as well. Stay tuned and enjoy your Holiday weekend!

Few of my favorite things

We're heading off to Quilt Market this week to debut the 2nd line of fabric - Summer Soiree. The above photo is a glimpse into 2 of my favorite things - Happy Flowers Necklace by Stella & Dot and the new fabrics made up into the cutest handbag ever! The talented Simone of Gardenhouse created this beauty for us and we are drooling over it - the vintage ribbon and brooch are to die for!

I apologize for my absence - I have been swamped between preparing for Quilt Market and selling Stella & Dot. It has been exciting and rewarding, but I hate to not be blogging consistently. Upon my return I will plan to post at least once per week - I promise!!! Will you hold me to it?

I'll be sure to have a full report with yummy photos from our Quilt Market adventure when we return!
