What a whirlwind the Holidays have been! So much activity at the Wilder house. Big dinners with many gathered around the table, and much laughter with friends and family. Good times! More good times will continue as we look forward to 2016!
It's a time for new beginnings.....of which I'll show you a little bit of what I've been up to. You will be seeing much more of this later. This is a practice block only pinned together. Easy, fun and cute. I'll nail this one down while I'm watching the football games tomorrow.
I'm starting a new, quarterly class at In Between Stitches called, "Let's Make a Diehl" as in Kim Diehl. Kim's Sunday Best fabric will be arriving soon as the shop. I've had my fabrics for about a week now and I've been busy designing a new table topper.
I'll let you know when this becomes available at the shop. You are going to LOVE IT!
Here is one of the projects we are going to work on called Walk in the Park. This pattern is available as a free download HERE at Henry Glass Fabrics. It is an older pattern, but the fabrics used are very similar to Kim's new line. This is an easy block and I'm zipping right along on this one. I will be kitting this quilt up just as soon as our fabrics arrives at the shop.
On another note, I've been working on a new project for RJR Fabrics. Just as soon as I'm allowed to show it to you I WILL!!!! As you probably know, Lynette Jensen from Thimbleberries fame came out of retirement. I was contacted by the Vice President of sales at RJR to see if I was interested in working with them, and with a new line of fabric from Lynette called Autumn Landscape. They thought my design style was very much in keeping with the Thimbleberries style. I don't have the fabric yet, but I have all of the digital images of the line. After a crash course in EQ7, I'm almost ready for the big reveal. 2016 is going to start out with a bang!
Today, I'm going to finish getting all of Christmas put away, and get my house back together, neat and pristine to begin the New Year. My mother always said, "The way your house looks on New Year's Eve, is the way it will be all year." Yikes......I hope this old wives tale doesn't apply to sewing rooms too!
Happy New Year!
