Welcome to Studio Saturday! Each week one of our contributors gives you a sneak peek into their studio, creative process or inspirations. We ask a related question of our readers and hope you’ll leave comments! As an incentive we offer a free prize each week to bribe you to use that keyboard. The following week we choose a random winner. Congratulations Malin de Koning, you won Vintaj chain from Cindy.
Hello, Hello! I feel like it’s been a really long time since it was my Studio Saturday. I tried to look back over the last month to see what I have been working on and wow, a lot has happened. The most exciting thing that has happened is my fabric. It has finally made it into stores. It’s been one of those behind the scenes projects forever, I love that I can talk about it. Even better I can sew with it!
Sewing is what I have been doing, lots and lots of it. Next week I am traveling to Houston to the International Quilt Market. I will have a booth showing my fabrics, buttons, and new patterns. I am super excited to be going because I usually just get to read about it on every ones blogs. This fall I get to experience it. I have been working on sewn projects for the booth. These bags are one of the projects. My sewing projects are multi tasking because they have also become holiday projects, and some will become holiday gifts.
Here’s a photo of one of my new sewing patterns. You can see them all here on my website.
My other big “project” going on in the studio right now is my Holiday Happenings newsletter. Every week I have been sending out newsletters. Here are a couple photos of projects that were sent out. This week the Christmas beads are showing up! I can’t believe it. This leads me to the questions of the week. Have you started working on holiday gifts?
