Check out Jay McCarroll's shop again...

Some fantastic new stuff has arrived to Jay McCarroll's shop! (Remember Jay from Project Runway?) Two of my favorites are:

  • The Stockholm dress (so 60s!) in colorblocked cream, celery, pink, teal and black (you have to see it to believe it!), which would be fabulous with a pair of funky Mini Zazas by John Fluevog, and
  • The Sydney skirt in black, baby blue and mustard. It has a pink waistband. 

I know, the colors out today in the stores are showing a lot of black and gray, but you need to pick up the latest Vogue and Elle magazine, and you'll see a lot of color.

Please check out my Aunt Greta's Etsy shop!

Quilted Custom Tote, $30 by Not Just Bags
Check out my aunt's new Etsy shop, Not Just Bags. She has lots of cute make-up bags, scrappy totes and custom pieced totes for your use. I've seen her work--it's really high quality!--and the make-up bags are priced at just $10, and the totes just $30. Her work is a labor of love, and you'll get a big does of it when you buy one of her pieces of art.

Thanks for looking, and adding her to your favorites and your circle.

The Artful Bird: Feathered Friends to Make + Sew - Interweave

I saw this adorable-looking book on the Quilting Daily newsletter this morning, and I'm just totally in love with that yellow peacock. How cute is he? Plus, I can see myself creating Hedwig, from Harry Potter, a special chicken for a certain special friend of mine, and a flamingo for another special friend.

And come on--those crows are just too much! How fun would they be for Halloween decorations?

I'm really tempted!
