tula who?

DSCN6130 I’m kind of obsessed with Tula Pink… her fabrics, her books, her artwork – her vibe. Of course, as usual, I discovered her long after her first four collections came out and now they are as rare as bird’s teeth. Nevertheless, I am going to create a quilt using as much of her fabric as I can gather.   If anyone feels sorry for me and wants to swap out some Tula for something else, please raise your hands! DSCN6132 I should be outdoors pulling weeds.  I can hear the droning hum of the neighborhood tractors – the good people who are tidying up after the storms that have passed through this week.  Where did my garden mojo go?  It may be hiding in the sewing studio. DSCN6141 I finished this Baby’s Ladylike Cardigan from the Mom and Me Knits collection.  Stefanie Japel has done it again!  There wasn’t a single hitch in this fun and speedy pattern. Time to air out the summer runner, and this is always a treat- I loved making this piece several years ago and always look forward to seeing it in its summer place on the harvest table.

You’re right old friend – I SHOULD be outdoors!

  1. Hi Jody, your garden is wonderful and Harley looks so content and happy under his shady tree! Barkley and I haven’t been able to enjoy being outside at all the last couple of weeks. It has been so hot and humid. The other night it was still 94 degrees at 10:00 p.m.! I know it is hot when Barkley doesn’t even ask to play and heads right back for the house. But he seems quite happy lounging around in doors and playing with his inside toys. I’m still working on the cherry colored gloves, making good but slow progress. You are sure on a creative roll! The sweater is beautiful, don’t you love it when you find a really good pattern like that. It will be a treasured heirloom. I have never heard of Tula fabric before, but then again I don’t do too much sewing these days. It is really pretty, I especially love the black and lavender combination of colors. I sure hope you get enough to finish a quilt, be sure and post the pictures I would love to see it. Its funny how a fabric or fiber can just reach out and grab us sometimes, inspiring all kinds of new thoughts and taking our work or skills in a new direction. Have a great weekend ahead my friend and happy creating! With Love, Delisa 🙂
