Traveling Handmade

Hi there! Coming at you today from the Minneapolis Airport! I didn't manage to find time last night between laundry, packing and a fun trip to eat wings with Michael.  It was really nice to sit down for a bit before leaving for Sewing Summit this morning! I've started a new project to keep me busy during my layover and flights.  I've got a great set of favorites scheduled for Friday, otherwise I won't be back to chat until next week!

I'm not about to leave you with nothing though! How about a little sneak peek of my new collection Dreamin' Vintage, that will be debuting next month! The first round of strikeoffs arrived last week and I'm smitten.  I can't wait to share it with you!

My sweet friend Frances sent over some super cool vintage quilt blocks and fabrics for me! I'm excited to find time to play with these, I'm thinking I'll make a few more blocks to go with it!
