All American Cuties Preview

It is finally here! I cannot tell you how excited I am to release this mini collection. It all started with the retro inspired halter top that I have been dying to make for a while now. Then came the bubble romper to satisfy many requests. And when I saw the two of them together I couldn't stop there. I called Shana with Shana Beiro Photography and asked if she wanted to take the pictures and she said yes! So that was the birth of this mini collection. (I say mini, but it ended up having as many girl items as I normally do in a line anyways).

My New Sewing Room

Again! But I think this is the last one. I am so very happy with it! It is much more functional for me now. And we won't see anymore of this... (hopefully)

Hope for OK

Well according to my husband, we should not go to Disney for a while. The first time we went the Boston Marathon was bombed and this last time we went a tornado devastated Oklahoma. My heart breaks for the people affect by both of these terrible tragedies. I am reminded at how precious every day we have here on earth is. I thank the Lord for these wonderful times in our lives and I hope the people who were affected are able to once again feel that they are experiencing wonderful times soon. 

Two groups that I am a part of on Facebook are organizing ways to help out the survivors of the Oklahoma tornado. I will be participating in both and wanted to share them with you. 

First is an auction at Create Kids Couture. They will be auctioning off items donated by shops and individuals. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross. Bidding starts tomorrow. Please take a look at the many, many items up for auction and see if there is anything you like. Help and shopping at the same time... awesome! This is the link to the photo album. 

Photo: The plans for the Oklahoma Charity Auction have been finalized! We have been humbled by your response- this is going to be a great fundraiser!

The auction will run from this Friday, May 24 until Wednesday, May 29. We will continue to accept donations through that time. All handmade donations (ready to ship and custom orders) will be accepted, and all proceeds will be donated to the United Way of Central OK. Please include shipping as part of the starting bid amount.

To help, please enter your information into the following google doc:

Pattern Review - Lazy Susan by Brownie-Goose

I can not tell you how excited I am to release this post today. I was over the moon when I was selected by my favorite designer to pattern test her new pattern. I mean I was riding on a high for days telling everyone (I'm sure most of my friends thought I was crazy). And when I found this fabric, I just knew it was going to be amazing. So I introduce the Summer Bloom Set! Now available in the shop
