It's Here, It's Here...Sherbet Pips is Here!

Now, don't faint! I know this is a record for me blogging 3 days in a row! But, I just had to let you know that in the dead of the night....OK after 8:30 p.m., the UPS man snuck up on our porch and delivered the boxes that I had waited for all day. I was getting a little edgy, as I didn't think they were going to be delivered....but
There they were. I guess they deliver rain, snow or sleet AND after hours:)

Anyway, they were filled with my order of Sherbet Pips fabric by Aneela Hoey for Moda Fabrics. As soon as I saw the fabric swatches at Quilt Market last Fall, I knew I had to have it.

You will have to check out Aneela's blog to learn the creation process and the sweet stories behind the designs and development of this wonderful fabric line. She also has some great projects and tutorials that she provides.

There are 27 different fabrics in the Sherbet Pips collection, and I have all 27 in my shop.

With color names such as Vanilla Ice Cream, Pink Lemonade, Cotton Candy Blue, Bubble Gum and Cherry, who can resist! Also, I've had so many customers requesting grey fabrics...Did you know that grey is the new black.  Anyway, Aneela has also included Scooter Grey they looks just "yummy" with the sweet pinks and blues of the other fabrics.

Here are a few samples of what you will find in my shop:

                                             Girl in a Tree Swing in Pink Lemonade

                                                 Puppy Dog Tails in Cotton Candy Blue

                                                           Scoot in Scooter Grey

                                                            Scarf Stripe in Cherry

There's also some wonderful coordinates like Square Dot in Bubble Gum, and

                                                        Square Dots in Blue Grey.

You better shop soon, because I think this fabric is going to sell quickly!

Until next time...which may be soon now that I'm on a roll:)

Customer Showcase

I want you to meet Helen. You may have seen her shop on etsy named Jack and Eleanor. If you haven't, you really need to check it out. Helen has the most adorable little girls dresses and outfits that she's sewn with meticulous workmanship. And, to top it off, her prices are so reasonable.

Helen has had plenty of practice sewing for little girls. She has 4 grown daughters, and is a young grandmother to 11 (yes, I said 11) precious granddaughters. Yet, she still has time to sew all these precious little girl dresses.

If you are in need of a sweet little Easter outfit for a little girl in your life, stop by Jack and Eleanor and just tell Helen that I sent you.

Here's only a few samples from Helen's shop.

Have fun shopping:) And, just to let you know that Sherbert Pips by Aneela Hoey for Moda is due to arrive today!!

Till next time...Encourage One Another♥♥

It has been a busy few weeks for me, personally.

Mr. T and I flew to Arizona over a week ago to help our daughter's family pack up and move to Oklahoma. I actually was born and raised in Oklahoma and my family still live there, but never did I think any of my children would go back to my roots. I can't tell you how excited I am to know that I can just get in the car to go visit...I don't like flying!

Good-bye Arizona.
Mr. T and LJ (our son-in-law) got to drive the trucks. That dinosaur on the big truck is there for a reason. It was a dinosaur to drive! Between driving the mountains of Arizona and through the windy plains of Texas, they were both pretty white-knuckled by time we got there.
Here are the beautiful mountains. I had to shoot these pictures while we were driving.
And here was Mr. T and LJ driving up those beautiful mountains. They were much prettier to look at before we had to start maneuvering the curves and the inclines and descents!

Oh yes, I forgot to say we also had our 2 grandchildren ages 3 and 1 that were traveling in the van with MJ and myself as we followed the moving trucks for 2 very long days. They were pretty happy when we first started out on our journey.
Here they are by the second day.
They were, actually, real troopers on this trip.
We were never so glad to see this sign! I was ready to start singing the musical rendition of "Oklahoma", but nobody would let me. Hmmmm...I wonder why??

Of course, once we arrived, the unloading and unpacking had to begin, and Mr. T and I then headed back home to Arkansas. Pure exhaustion!! I think we are finally feeling our age:(

One more piece of good news that we received while on our trip:) Our son and his family are moving from Minnesota to Arkansas!! Yeah!! His company will be moving them:) I cannot tell you how long I've been praying for our children and their families to live near us. GOD is SO good!!

Till Next Time, Encourage One Another♥♥
