I am seriously in blog dream week mode now that everyone is reporting on their time at Quilt Market. Quilt Market is when fabric and pattern designers meet with company representatives to sell their wares and debut new lines. My mom can actually get into market, and I may just have to join her one of these days. There are lots of craft blogs talking about the week, but here are some of my favorites:
Sandi Henderson (Portabello Pixie). She is debuting a new line, and also has tons of patterns coming out soon. I can't wait. I am into sewing clothes for the girls right now, so I am sure I will be ordering lots of her stuff in the near future! She is even going to be putting up some tutorials on her blog... like for that adorable light cover you see on the left side of the picture. I can't wait!
Anna Maria Horner won a blue ribbon for her booth design. She currently has a gorgeous home deocrating line out called drawing room, and is set to debut a line of quilt weight fabrics soon too. Add these to her former lines, and you have same dang gorgeous fabrics. She is also coming out with a new book on sewing called "Seams To Me". I can't wait to see it!
If I had my dream house, I am pretty sure I would want at least one room that looked like this. Tanya Whelan has some of the most beautiful, girlie fabrics available. She also has a great tutorial on her blog of a twirly skirt that any little ballerina is sure to love!
For Memorial Day Monday, it is supposed to be 83 degrees... with thunderstorms. There go all my plans for either the zoo or the pool!
The Ugly:I have to admit, this room is way too orange for my taste. But Kathy Miller of Michael Miller Fabrics, has instructions for hanging fabric instead of wallpaper, and I admit to wanting to try it right away. I will wait, of course, until Sophie is ready for her big girl bed, and I redo the girls' bedroom. But if you try it, let me know how it goes!
