Girly Skirts are addictive...

Had to share some more cuteness from Miss Ava O'Neill! Mom and Grammie couldn't help but make more and more of the adorable Girly Skirt by Pink Fig for Ava since they're so easy and quick to make! Not to mention, she looks so darn cute in them!

It's official, making this skirt is ADDICTIVE!

Mom & Grammie used Cool Cords, by Robert Kaufman for this one!

Veteran's Day Thoughts from the Quilts of Valor Foundation

"At the end of World War I, the war to end all wars, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the world paused to celebrate the dawn of peace. It was a brief peace, to be sure, but at the time, it seemed full of hope. The day was "Armistice Day", but later became "Veterans' Day", in recognition of the sacrifices made by the serving members of the Armed Forces. Congress ultimately dedicated the day in that spirit, in 1938, twenty years after the end of the First War, and under the shadow of the beginning of the Second World War.

Today we celebrate the sacrifices of our service members in many wars, and in keeping the peace in between. The day has never been more important, more vivid, more necessary than today. We are engaged now in wars which have lasted longer than any prior war, fought by veterans who have deployed further, and longer than any of their ancestors. We have failed our veterans returning from previous wars, from Korea, the forgotten war, to Viet Nam, the unpopular war, and we are determined not to repeat that shameful past. Politics aside, our veterans go where they are ordered, do what they must, and deserve our most heartfelt thanks. The stress they undergo to leave family, friends, career and country, to fight for us, is beyond civilian capacity to comprehend. The debt we owe them is beyond reckoning. Join us in honoring them, for doing what few would do, what must be done, by the best of us. We are forever in their debt, and a day of honor does not even come close to repayment."

Amazing words from the Quilts of Valor Foundation! Check out their website to read about the amazing things they do for our veterans!

The Experience!!!

Are you looking for something AWESOME to do this weekend for FREE! Well then grab your best pals, your kids, or just come on your own to "The Experience", an indie art and craft fair showcasing creative folks from right here in Fort Worth!

We recently had a news crew come to our shop to film a promotional highlight to air on local channel, 33! There were a couple of artists/crafters that will be at the show who set up booths in our shop to be featured and here are some pictures from the day!

Everyone setting up!

The CameraMan!

This booth belongs to The Curious Cake Shoppe. She creates some of the most adorable baby items I've ever seen! Some of the ladies were calling dibs on those cute baby hats before the booth was even set up!

This is the booth of Revel Designs! She's got a great eye for creating home decor and we were all gaga over her creations! I especially love that fabric birdcage and little birdies to go along with it!

And this lovely setup is property of Original Youth! Her multimedia paintings are utterly striking! It was so much fun getting a close look at her beautiful pieces and discovering all the hidden paper bits like stamps and tickets!

This is the Funky Finds booth! They set up a sort of preview showcasing many different items from different vendors that will be at "The Experience". You can read more about Funky Finds and this wonderful craft show on the Funky Finds website!

We are sponsoring this fun event and will have a vendor booth as well, so come out and see all the beautiful and handmade goodness!!!

The ladies just returned from Fall Market and brought back some awesome inspiration photos from some of their favorite booths!

Great Christmas decor ideas for "Colorful Christmas"! Aren't the stockings just the cutest! That tree skirit is adorable too! Such a fun and bright Christmas line, get it before it's all gone!

We told you early this summer that Ty Pennington would be debuting his first fabric line and home furnishings collection at Fall Market! And here is a little taste! I love the calming colors and the modern take on patchwork!

How cute are those little jumpers?? I'm dying over this cute and girly line "Quite Contrary" by My Mind's Eye! We've added it to our Coming Soon section so go take a look!

I love all these quilts using "All Star 2"! Would be sooo cute  for decorating a boys bedroom! We have Cottons and Flannels in these awesome fabrics so make some flannel pj's, a fun quilt, or some throw pillows!

I can't wait to share some of the new products for the next season so stay tuned to get the 411!

Have a great day!
