We've Got the Blues

Sometimes we need a little change to keep things fresh, and changing out the displays just doesn't cut it.  So we've been painting again; yes again, because we seem to do this yearly :)

Come in and see the changes in person.  We think you will be amazed at what a little paint can do.

In Need of a Quick Baby Gift?

If you are in need of a quick baby gift, take a look at this...

This quilted fabric makes a darling baby quilt with the addition of a little applique and some contrast binding.  I didn't know what name had been chosen for this little baby, so I enlarged the elephant shown on the fabric and appliqued that instead of a baby's initial (like in this quilt by Thimble Blossoms).  I was really happy with how this turned out.  What do you think?

Little Guests at the Village

Look at the sweet little guests you can see out by the pond (okay so maybe not so little - more like teenagers than babies).  But still true sign that Spring really is here, even though it doesn't feel like it (brrrrr)!

Nancy's Review

mycottoncreationsToday's book review comes from Nancy, one of our many talented employees. 

Hi everyone! I was so excited when I saw this book at the shop the other day. I love Oliver + S patterns, from their clean and classic designs to their adorable little paper dolls that come with the patterns. This book, called  founder Liesl Gibson, is full of 20 of the most precious things to make for children. Out of the 20 accessories and toys in this book, I want to make all 20! It was hard to pick one to start with, but the bucket hats, little red riding hood cape, and penguin backpack are my favorites. Oliver + S patterns are always very detailed and well written, and I love the fact that they list their difficulty level, so I know if it will be a quick project or a new challenge. At the end of the book you'll find a set of the Oliver + S little boy and girl paper dolls, along with clothes to dress them in from the book, "A little something extra to keep young ones occupied as you stitch up new items for their wardrobes!" (taken from Oliver + S book jacket) If you have children in your lives you that you love to sew for, I highly recomend picking up a copy of this darling book.

Make a Little Happiness!

This time of year, don't you just L-O-V-E, love to make a little happiness?  This was my happiness last night in my sewing room, I just wouldn't go to bed until I had finished!  The pattern I used is 'Zippy Strippy' by Atkinson Designs, and I used the Kumari Garden fabric by Freespirit. Tell me what you think :)
