No crowds, the foliage is gorgeous, you’ve got the shore all to yourself and the perfect excuse to wear your favorite sweater every single day.
It’s all I can think about since Feather River arrived, Birch Fabric’s new fall camping collection. Canoes, vintage campers and their adorable wagons, trees in glorious shades of autumn. Just what you’d expect for the perfect glamping trip.Find all four fabrics: Feather River, Feather River Patch, Camper Rally and Canoes at worthygoods textile.
Yep. I’m doing my taxes, folks. So, in an attempt to balance out all the negative energy around here I’m having a sale. On everything. All of the things at worthygoods textile are on sale. Just ’cause. Between this sale, the caramel in my coffee and my Pandora 80’s radio station, I’ve just given this previously-drudgey weekend a Dory-style makeover. Yep, Debbie Debb and I are singing the same song, “Look out weekend, cause here I come. Because weekends were made for fun.”
Take that tax paperwork monster.
Now you’ve got 80’s prices, Pat Benetar hair and caffeine buzz.
Pretty darned adorable, those monsterz. A new collection by Michéle Brummer-Everett for Cloud9 Fabrics, all with this lightly-drawn children’s illustration quality. When I see this collection I get a bit nostalgic for Barbapapa and that thumbprint book by Ed Emberly. But these happy little critters in hip unisex shades? They are for the modern kiddo, and quite possibly his or her sentimental parent. Ahem.
You can find these fresh cute organics in the shop.
Or the pages of a good book. Take naptime, for instance.
Mr. P, Jam Baby and I were all snuggled up to read The Calico Jungle by Dahlov Ipcar. And if you’ve read it, you know where this is going.
“Every night, after his mother tucked him into bed and kissed him good night, the little boy lay there in his bed, in the dim evening light, and looked at all the animals among the strange and wonderful trees. “
Excerpt from The Calico Jungle
It’s time for this mother to make her boy a quilt. A vibrant jungle quilt. One with bold shades of black and green. Where the animals and the flora are layered and twine. In this story, my story, the mother is inspired by another mother, artist Dahlov Ipcar. Inspired by her bold, lush artwork, intense use of color and pattern, as well as her tale. It’s time to start collecting fabrics, thrifted and new. Time to start sketching and planning. Time to begin.
