entering break mode.

It has really been an awesome year, and I continue to be so grateful.

And with that, I’m officially entering break mode until the new year. I think it’s just the right time to slow down and get to some things and people who I haven’t been able to enjoy as much as I would have liked. Let there be lots of sewing, eating, and visiting!

In the meantime, there are just a couple of things to mention.


First, Pink Chalk did some fabulous Architextures and solids matchmaking–see here. So lovely. And they’re also fully stocked with the coordinating Kona solids–see here and here–that I’ve been using on many projects (including my new Stripes and Shirts patterns).


Second, Joan Ford of Hummingbird Highway is collecting quilts to give to the people in Newtown, CT. See here for the details. The turnaround time is soon, but with my time off and a good survey through my stash, I should be able to get something together to send. We all know how special a quilt can be.

Warm wishes this holiday season, and I’ll see you in the new year!

    I am so excited about these fabrics!! I have a background in architecture and was thinking how i could integrate my love of both. These are perfect. I’m especially dying over the topo blouse! I’ll have to make one for sure.

    Have a terrific holiday!
