March Madness

Well March is sooooo close to being over and I have accomplished most of what I had set out to do. I have just finished filling in my April calendar and wow the appointments are already stacking up. The weather here is bound to be springful at some point. One of the things on my bucket list of things to do was to purchase a new camera.... Yippee .. I now the new owner of a Canon G1x. I am in love. The only sad thing about the camera is the up close micro function. The camera will be perfect for my level of photography. (which I might add is creeping slowly out of the newbie stage)

Long black sweatshirt
This long black sweatshirt is a project that I have also finished. The pattern I made myself and it took some time to perfect it. I made 1 for myself and 1 for each of my daughters. We all love them and the fabric I used here is super soft and comfortable. One of my girls teachers bought one and claims that it is her favorite sweatshirt. The organic sweatshirt can be worn casual or you can dress it up.

Lotta Jansdotter

Another one of my favorite fabric prints is by Lotta Jansdotter. Her designs are fun and colorful. I recently made some bibs that turned out sooo cute. I will post them as soon as I have them in my shop. Here are a few of my favorite prints.

Scandinavian Fabric

It must be my heritage but my eye is drawn to the bold colourful prints of Scandinavian fabrics. One of my all time favourites is Marimekko. ( of course ) 
I have this unikko print as my shower curtain. I have had the same shower curtain for 5 years and I still love it. Marimekko fabric and prints are used in so many ways from home decor to clothing.
