The Luxury of Linen

Flax Linen is an amazing textile! It is so luxurious! I have been making Bath Towel Sets for my Etsy Shop and will be adding Linen Kitchen Towels to my shop tomorrow!

I absolutely love Linen! Linen makes your skin feel wonderful too.  It gets softer with use and washings. Linen is super absorbent and dries quickly. Naturally resistant to mildew and stains.

European Flax Line is usually hand picked, so it costs more than cotton. A beautifully woven fabric having different weights and textures. The possibilities are endless! Bedding, Towels, Table Clothes, Napkins, Book Covers, Clothes, Curtains, Slip Covers, Upholstery and the list of uses goes on and on.

I will be creating with Linen as well as quilting from here on out!

Try a Linen Towel  and pamper yourself or a loved one today!

Fabric Storage

I love to walk into my studio and see all of the beautiful fabrics on the shelves. However, I do not like to fold them and try to keep them neat and organized when they are folded.

I never seem to fold them the same size….so I decide to invest in some Polar Notions fabric boards. They are so easy to use and keep the fabric on display, neat and organized. I have gotten up to 10 yards on 1 board or as little as a yard. I have 100 of these boards and need to order 200-300 more at least, but I have a good start on creating the look I want.

Jenny Doan Fan Here…

I am a HUGE  fan of Jenny Doan’s quilting tutorials! She just has a way of explaining techniques, keeping things simple and easy to follow. Below I have added a link to one of her many video tutorials of a quadrefoil block with a nine patch as the secondary pattern. I think the pattern is beautiful! Check it out!

A New Start

Starting out fresh with a brand new Blog

Moving In A Work in Progress Getting Organized

 When I moved my Studio to a new location, I thought it was a great time to move my blog too. I hadn’t kept the old blog up to date very well, so it was time for a new start.

I am looking forward to sharing my new Studio, quilting, embroidery and sewing projects with you. My love of fabric, textures and colors will hopefully be an inspiration to you.  Please follow me in my journey both in the Studio and my travels.
