Nothin flashy... just fabric (more from the Serendipi Tea House)

As I'm sure you can tell, I love fabric. I love to look at it and touch it (dare I say fondle it, which makes buying online a challenge for me).  I'm not sure when this addiction set in... maybe as a kid when I watched my mom sew, high school possibly (I had a great Textiles teacher!), or perhaps from working in fabric stores after high school (the endless tidying of bolts you think would be enough to cure me) but I still love it!

An ode to the Runaways "Cherry Bomb" (Coloured Pencil on Wood)

Remember my Cherry Blossom Quilt, well I just had to draw it too!

The Quilt and the Drawing titled "A slice of Cherry Pie"are featured in Serendipi Tea's window.

...and that's a wrap! More to come in a few days!

Deja Vu?

This feels like deja vu... this time last year I was showing a series of drawings at the Abbotsford Art Walk, at the Serendipi Tea House. Guess what? It's a year later and I am showing a new series of drawings at the Abbotsford Art Walk, at the Serendipi Tea House!

I thought I'd start off  this series with the drawing that was featured at the opening.

Ta Da! It's called "The Secret Stash". I always leave the house with a list of what I need, fabric wise, and always tend find something I just have to have! Which means sometimes I have to sneak a few pieces into the house that weren't on my list (shhh... don't tell my husband, although I think he has his suspicions)!

If you get a chance, pop into Serendipi Tea. It's such a lovely place to spend time with friends and you'll get to see my whole show! If you do pop round be sure to check next door, my good friend Cynthia is showing at Quilt Essentials.

No worries if you can't make it but be sure to stay tuned as I'll be posting pictures of the whole show over the next couple of days!

Oops! I almost missed it!

I guess time does fly when you're having fun!

Whoops! I almost missed my blog birthday! It's been one whole year since I started blogging and what a year it's been. To celebrate, I want to give you one of my pin cushion cupcakes! Simply leave a comment about which post  you liked best and why. Easy Peasy, right? I'll randomly draw a winner and send them one of these bad boys!

Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me...
