A New Chapter

posted in: home + garden, inspire 0

The blog has been quiet for a long time… but no worries I am still here! I have started a beautiful, new chapter in my life. Big life changes in the past few months- a wedding, a new house and a new studio! Thinking a lot about what direction to go in for my career. Now, I’m finally getting settled in my new home and studio and finding lots of inspiration here. Going forward, I will be spending more time on my true passion- inspirational art and craft pattern design. I’ve started writing arts and crafts pattern articles too. A new website store is in the works. And I plan to share more often here 🙂

My guys love the new studio. Iko the cat sleeps on the loveseat in the sun all day. I’m pretty sure there must be fairies and gnomes living in our enchanted, foresty yard.  

I married the man of my dreams on the Oregon coast. 🙂

Of course, I had to make the dress! I used cotton and floral lace and adapted Butterick pattern #1909. Sweet and simple.

Right now in the studio, I’m finishing up two new quilt table runner patterns for Connecting Threads, strawberry patch and beach cottage. Fresh strawberries from the farmers market is my favorite part of June.

Visited the Portland Rose Garden and that day a harpist was performing. Isn’t it nice to take in such beautiful moments in life?  I wish happy summer moments to you too.
