Hi guys, it's been a while! We've been so busy getting ready for the holidays, training for & running a half marathon in Vegas, and planning our June wedding! Anyway, we hope to start posting more entries. Here is a sneak peak of the Hello Betty fabric collection by Chloe's Closet for Moda. I'm super excited, it will be arriving at SMS very soon!

My friend and I spent quite a long time going through a huge basket of these super sweet fabric dolls. Trying to narrow it down and choose our favorites was tough (especially for a couple of indecisive ladies). Good thing the shop is a few hours away, otherwise I probably would have the whole basket by now!

Have you heard of BobBon Kakku? It's a website that allows you to design your own fabric, submit your designs, and vote for other patterns that suit your fancy. Based on the viewers votes, several fabrics are selected to be printed and sold in the shop. Check it out, it's a pretty cool website. . .

I always forget how absolutely peaceful looking at the ocean is, until I'm actually in front of it. After a quick trip to the beach, I am coming back refreshed and ready to start new projects. My friend and I got to know some of the locals during our visit. . . this is Murth! She showed us around Seaside, and we couldn't have asked for a better tour guide.

It has been a while since I have sewn anything for myself, so I decided to make a few must-have summer items:
A sunglasses case (SO easy I made a couple for friends) using some County Fair canvas fabric by Denyse Schmidt.
When visiting quilt market in the spring, Tanya Whelan had these drawstring bags made from her new fabric line Ava Rose on display. I couldn't get them out of my head, so I decided to whip one of myself! Simple, and perfect for an overnight venture or a trip to the beach!

We are finally in our new Condo! It's been a while, and we have sure missed the blog world! Things are still quite hectic around here, but we're settling in and LOVING it! Here is a taste of our new office. All of the items from Ikea of course (I keep asking myself what we would do without it). There are a few things that I am super excited about that are not in the office. . . I need to take pictures of for you to see.
Well, for the next month the theme will be decorating. It seems like a lot of people I know are buying new homes and ready for some decorating inspiration! If you are one of those people (or not!) here are a few links of blogs/shops that I have been visiting lately. More to come!
Hundreds of Amazing Rooms!

Woah, hold up! We've been SO busy lately that I completely forgot to show you my newest fabric obsession! Cake Rock Beach by Joelle Hoverson. It very well could be my all-time favorite collection. I love the colors and the natural simplicity of the designs. The entire group goes together perfectly, and I absolutely cannot wait to begin sewing with it! (omg, looking at the image above I just realized this fabric would make a beautiful quilt—time to buy more!)
On a different note, we're moving this week! Woohoo! This will probably be the last post for a week or so, but without a doubt I'll be back when we're settled in, and decorating will be on my mind! I'll probably be so happy that you might expect a give-away :)

I came across the fabulous work of Irana Douer via Bloesem, and have come to the conclusion that her illustrations are perfect in every way. Her ceramics are lovely (you can buy them here), I think they would make great wedding gifts!

I've slowly been gathering inspiration for my first quilt (which I was planning to start in February, but so it goes!) and found this one at Urban Outfitters. I love how the textile designs, colors, and quilt style are so simple and natural. This photo makes me want to crawl right in.
Also loving these kitchen goods.

A month or so ago maditi likes (one of my favorite blogs to visit) posted some of Nanako Koyama's images, and I have been hooked ever since. Her work is beautiful. . . you have to check it out! And, if you want to buy some prints go to her Etsy shop! This image is my favorite, but I waited too long to buy it and now it is gone, hopefully she puts another up soon!!

My mom is in town for the weekend. We are going to do a bit of shopping, woohoo!!
Maybe you wish to do some shopping too?! Here are some great online shops I often visit:
Little Paper Planes
Lotta Jansdotter (Her fabric is now available!!! Gorgeous)
Three Potato Four
That should keep you busy for a while! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

This is one of those fabrics that would be hard to live without (from the Echino fabric collection by Estuko Furuya for Kokka). Definitely in my top 10, although I have no idea what to do with it! Any ideas? It feels worthy of a nice big spot on the wall.

My niece is turning three next week! Lately she has been obsessed with 'teeny tiny' dolls, so I bought her these cute worry dolls from Aeroplane Blonde on Etsy. I decided to sew a sleeping bag roll-up for them. . . they seem to like it.
