You know how frustrating it is to manhandle a big quilt through your machine and then realize you just sewed a whole long row without any bobbin thread? Yeah. Me too. Here’s how I keep that from happening.

***Included in Week 19 Sale***

Such a cutie!


I drew this emu as part of my 100 Days project in 2020. It became the Eloise Emu/Orly Ostrich pattern. I just love her cheerful face!


I redesigned the free bee pattern!


I also did the same fabric designs in a mostly-pink palette and called it Squeaky Toy. 😁


Another fabric collection – this one inspired by Mary Blair. The top right design (in sea glass colors) is now my desk pad and it makes me so happy every single day.


I created a printable cut paper version of the adorable otter pattern. It was a free wallpaper download – and you can still get it! Just without the May 2024 calendar. 🙂
