Whoops.... Hi!

Hey Everyone,

I let life take over again! You know how that is right? In case you hadn't seen Tilda's Cottage arrived. And it is gorgeous!

Perfect for all of your Hygge projects. I have lived with it for the past week and I still haven't gotten over all of the gorgeousness. :)

It is just two weeks exactly before I leave for Market. I am going a bit early to hang out with Sally
I can't wait. We are going to get up to some hijinx.

I hope you all have been well. I am getting better every day.

Love,
Julie

Selling off my Scrapbooking and Planner Items for Harvey Relief

Hey Everyone,

I am selling all of the paper products at about what they cost me and I am going to send 100% of the proceeds (not just the profit) to Harvey and Irma relief.I have so many friends in Houston and in Florida I just had to do something.  Here is a link to the stuff. And here is a video of what is in the packages:

I have been wrapped up in moving all of the fabric home from the warehouse. Now I am working from home again and I feel so much more settled. Hoping to do some fun sewing soon. Here is the first thing I have made in a few months. It is a Traveler's Notebook for one of my planner friends.

I think it is pretty cute :)

Talk soon.

Love,
Julie

Sneak Peek

Hi Everyone,

Would you like to see a little sneaky peeky of what I am working on?

It is gonna be a quilt... That is all I can tell you so far. But stay tuned for the full reveal soon.

Harvest is here and will be sliced and diced this weekend and shipped out on Monday and Tuesday... so exciting!

Talk soon,
Julie

Tilda's Harvest Is On The Way.

Hey Everyone,

I am a little surprised that it has been so long since I posted. I have been super busy with the clearance sale and Tilda Pre-Orders have been going so great that time has flown by.

If you haven't seen pictures of Harvest (for one I would be surprised) but I would love to show you.

For those that don't know Tilda has been super hard to get in the US ... we usually have to order it internationally and pay tons for shipping as well as paying the huge international prices. Luckily there is finally a distributor in the US and now I am able to offer it at a great price. When I was buying internationally I was selling it at $16.99 a yard (even though the retail price was $20) but I will have it for $13.49 from now on. It is super exciting for me.

Tilda's new book is coming in November and these adorable pumpkins will be one of the patterns:

You will be seeing me around her a lot more from now on. I have been super busy getting all of the fabric moved home. I still have another couple weeks of work on that but then my time will not be split anymore and I can concentrate on creating content here again.

I am excited for a new project that I am going to start this fall. A fun series of patterns for a seasonal sampler ... I hope you will join me.

Tilda Circus is here... In the United States for real!

Hey Everyone,
From the Tilda's World Blog used by permission

It is finally here... so exciting. I just sent out a newsletter with tons of info but I wanted to show these IRL photos I took at the shop so you could get an idea of scale... this fabric is perfect for fussy cutting because the scale is so nice...



The colors are so pretty!
 I love this print...
There is also a pre-view of the new collection, Harvest, at the website link... and you can see what a perfect scale it is in this picture from Tilda's Blog of her new book Sewing by Heart...


Hugs,
Julie

I made something with fabric...

I know you thought it would never happen :)

So this is funny... I have always wanted a French Noteboard... when I was a little kid I dreamed of having one. I have thought of making one a million times but never did it. Why? I have no idea. I make things all of the time why not that? Silly really ...

So I finally did it... I grabbed a painter's canvas ... it is 16" by 20" and made a pieced cover for it with Charleston (I love it more and more) and voila.

 It makes me so happy! I did a little tutorial on the other blog on how to make it if you want to look. Really simple but a fun way to use some scraps for sure.

The Tilda Circus was delivered this afternoon so all of my pre-orders will start shipping on Monday. The yardage that is left and the accessories are listed. Weird that UPS delivered on a Saturday.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend :)
Hugs,
Julie

I did a tutorial over on I'll Take Jesus for making these foil accented journaling cards:


 Our first order of Tilda is arriving next week and that is pretty exciting. Other than that nothing going on in this neck of the woods... 

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!
