Sonnet!


Well, my BIRTHDAY is here! I'm making my BIRTHDAY WISHES and ready to blow out my Birthday Candles! 
How did 43 sneak up on me so fast?
What better a day to announce my Fabric line with Newcastle Fabrics and give you a sneak peak! 

My first fabric lineSONNET, is all about POETRY and COLOR! Many of my quilts are named after lines in Sonnets. It excites me to spice the traditional with the modern. You will use these prints to blend the grace of yesteryear with a Celestial Celebration of smart modern design. Beauteous combinations stitched with Grace and Flattery reflect the passion of great poems. Have great fun with the present and the past--time to PLAY in SONNET!

I'm so excited to have these out... They will be ready to order for shops at Spring Market in Portland, and will then ship to stores in the late summer... That still seems far off to me, but I know it will be here so soon, just as these sneaky birthdays keep creeping up on me!

I'm off tomorrow to my house, so, expect to see pictures of my BIRTHDAY GIFT!!! I'll be busy setting it up!

  32. WOW!! Sopnet is such a beautiful collection - love, love, LOVE it!!
    Will JPEG swatches be available for download on the fabric web site? I LOVe to have those before fabric even arrives to play and design quilts...and then I am ready to go! :)
    My "weakness are these type of "gradation" prints (color or flowers in your case)- just LOVE using them in quilts!
    Have a happy, happy birthday!!

    First the fabrics are so beautiful,can't wait to see them in the shops.

So glad you and your family enjoyed this vacation destination. can 't wait to hear about your birthday present!! again happy birthday,and may you always have happiness and joy in your life!

    p.s. Thanks for inspiring me with the idea that we must try (perhaps fail) ,but just keep going ,push yourself to do what you thought you never could-----be fearless with our talents, and Keep trying new things. This inspiration is bringing me to places, and experiences, that I never thought I would get to. It really is true: Fear is worse then fear itself!----well just some thoughts to ponder
