Hilarious Mothers Day Dance Dare for the Ellen DeGeneres Show!

Okay folks you don't want to miss this. My hilarious friend Kathryn has created this video for the Mothers Day Dance Dare for the Ellen show. I have lots of great high school memories with this girl that include weekend prank calls to Chinese restaurants, b-boxing while singing through our noses (yes Kathryn I taught you that one), and lots and lots of goofy dancing at 5:30am for dance team practices.

Knowing the girl behind those sexy prego moves just makes me laugh even harder.  So kick back, relax, and enjoy and good laugh. And when you're done be a dear and share the video!

Chevron Cottons from Riley Blake available at Fabric Envy

Have you checked out the store lately? We've got lots of new Riley Blake Chevron Cottons in yardage Fat Quarter and Half Yard Bundles, and I just had to share!

Yep, they're pretty great, and definitely a big ole' trend around the sewing world. Just google chevron prints and you'll come up will oodles crafty new projects using these modern, colorful, and versatile prints. Here are two of my favorites:

After reading this tutorial from Apostrophy Designs I'm ready to try and whip of one of these new blankets over the weekend.

This pincushion tutorial featured over on the Riley Blake blog is simple and cute. I think it would make a great gift for a friend.

Happy Sewing!

Fabric Envy featured on Tip Junkie!

Okay really I'm still here, I've just been taking a very temporary break :) Life has been busier then usual for me lately and to make matters worse I have been having major issues with my computer. Anyhoo, as far as I can tell I think I've fixed the problem. I plan to be back up and blogging shortly and will introduce some great new fabric collections that I've recently added to my inventory. So here's a quick little flash back to my free Photo Tile tutorial. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it was featured over on Tip Junkie recently. Thanks a bunch--I dig that website!
