Boho Pattern and a Good Book

Have you seen Pat Bravo's newest pattern? The Boho Dress Pattern on DVD is so fabulous! I had to have it...I love it...And I'm so excited to make one of these cute dresses this weekend. I have a few in stock right now so hurry and order yours today! I've been a bad, bad blogger again. I'm just in a writing funk. I've been doing a lot of reading though. Has anyone read this book? My mom gave it to me last weekend and I'm hooked. A really good read. But now I'm on the hunt for something a bit more light. Something I can read while hanging outside with the kids...? Any suggestions? Last Friday I had one of the best days with my mom and grams. We went on a fabric shop hop. We went to 5 different shops in the area. All of them were fabulous in their own different ways. It was so much fun to sit and talk to some of the shop owners. After all of my kids are in school, I'd love to own a fun fabric shop of my own. But for now, I'm super happy and grateful to have my own little online fabric shop. Oh and to make the trip even sweeter, we hit up Target and Olive Garden. I seriously can't get enough of their spinach and artichoke dip. Yum-o! I hope everyone has a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend! I'm looking forward to a cookout/bonfire, celebrating my Dad's birthday and of course a little sewing. Oh and hopefully some nice weather!!! Morgan

Restocked & New Items

Hope everyone enjoyed a nice Mother's Day. I had the best one I've had...ever! The funny thing is that we didn't do much. No plans. We went to church, planted a few things with the kids and in the garden, ate lunch outside (even got a bit of a sunburn)...that's it. It was blissfully uneventful! And...the kids didn't argue with each other as much...BONUS!

I thought it was necessary to let you all know that I have some items back in stock as they fly out of my shop just as quick as I can list them.

This Zig Zag in Ash/White has been super popular!

Also, two new colors:

Ash/Corn Yellow

Village Green/Natural
And I love this new color combo:
Oh, and thank you to the lovely ladies who left me such sweet comments. I love hearing the little things that you are thankful for! The winner of the book One Thousand Things is...
Congrats Jaime! I think you will LOVE the book! I will email you shortly!
Enjoy the rest of your Monday!

One Thousand Gifts (Giveaway)

First of all...without going into too much detail...I obviously took a little blogging/facebook(for the most part)/social media vacation. Not going to was kind of nice. I had to do it. But I'm back and refreshed. And one reason I feel so refreshed is because of this book:

Have you read One Thousand Gifts yet? Its one of those books that you just have to read. I purchased it quite a while back and just got to reading it around Easter time. It was perfect timing for me to read this as I needed to step back and look at things. This book makes you look at life, love and the gifts that Jesus gives to us daily so differently. And to be thankful for where you are, right now. The grass is not always greener on the other side. All of the gifts around us that we just take for granted...its almost heartbreaking to think of. But, Ann Voskamp makes you happy that you are able realize this and start fresh. She challenges you to slow down and make a list of one thousand gifts (small or big) that you are thankful for. I started my list and its amazing where the list has taken me. From small things like my floors being warm from the spring sun shining down on them to bigger things like a longtime prayer being answered. I'm so thankful for this book and the timing of it in my life.

Okay, so wanna know something exciting! I love this book so much that I am going to give one one of you! Cool, huh?!? All you have to do is leave a comment about something SMALL you are thankful for. Its the little things in life, people! I will choose a winner on Sunday! Please leave your email address along with your comment. YAY!

Now, onto a little business...I just got a few different fabrics in from Michael Miller. They had an amazing little sale going on so I took full advantage. Here are a couple of them that are listed in the shop:

So, check out the shop and enter to win One Thousand Gifts. You'll be happy ya did! Morgan
