Hi Tanya,
The magazine article looks fantastic!
Ooooh, I can't wait to see your new fabric range!! I just LOVE your Barefoot Roses and am sure Ava Rose will be just as good (if not better!)
Kathy :)


Oh, I can't wait to get my hands on that magazine. I adore Valentine's Day. I look forward to seeing your new fabrics.

I know this relates to your previous post - but... did you stiffin the fabric prior to making up the boxes? or just use plain 'ol fabric...? They look so fabulous that I want to give them a try. Thanks so much.


beautiful pictures - it just looks as yummy as cupcakes!


*LOVE* the name of your new fabric line, Ava Rose is my youngest daughter's name ;-)


Can't wait for the magazine! Congratulations!


Can't wait to see it Tanya!


I'm looking forward to seeing that article!
Congratulations on finding a good portrait of yourself. I am never happy with mine, either, so I'm glad you found one you are happy with. It gives me hope!

Ok I have to laugh and say that I completely understand how you feel as I JUST came back from sending line #2 off with Fed Ex. Congratulations-I can attest to the happy feeling of having nothing to do but play with your kids and clean your house for the next 6-8 weeks. Hooray! LOL



Looking forward to seeing the magazine...congrats!


Oh, these pages look so delicious. Congrats on the mag and the new fabric.


Looking forward to your new fabrics and the magazine! :) Love your pretties~

I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for this magazine in Australia - and your gorgeous new collection of course.


Those are some gorgeous photos! Really looking forward to those new fabrics!

I love your fabrics, your style is just dreamy. When will we be able to see Ava Rose? I can't wait!!!

Just love your first range of fabric so can't wait for the next. Wonder when we will get it in New Zealand.


The magazine article looks lovely. Congratulations! Love your blog!

OMG!!!! I'm cruisin' online fabric shops lookin' for fabric to make a quilted/embroidered tote for my niece and I stumble upon your luscious fabrics. I had to check out your site and I have to tell ya' - I LOVE your fabric, designs, etc. I haven't been sewing/quilting much in the last couple years because of a back injury (I took up knitting as I can do it laying back in the recliner :O) ), but I'm itching to get back to it, even if I have to keep my projects small, and I am definitely going to make something AWESOME using your fabrics. Did I say I LOVE your fabric??? I'm a new fan and will be a regular at your site so I'll see ya soon. Can't wait to see the new collection!!!!!


Congratulation on finishing your new fabric collection! I'm really looking forward to it!! And congratulation on beeing in the magazine as well!


I know I'm probably late for the giveaway, but i stumbled across your blog today and have been reading it from start to finish. I am so enjoying your inspiring picts, and words about your life as a mom, a wife, a daughter, a friend and so on.
I think i spent just an hour alone going through every link to your fabrics in hopes of finding your patterns to purchase. i had no idea you had downloaded them on your site. Duhhhh!
I often chase rabbits. O-F-T-E-N!
I see a pict and a link and i'm gone. And then, i go "ummmm, now where was I?"
Anyhoo... I love the mix of modern and vintage. I too, am an avid collecter of anything old. Ask my husband.
I've hauled home so many "projects" from the roadside, that even my little ones say, "hey, mom, slow down i think that was an old (fill in the blank) we just passed.
Have a great Sunday!
love, marilyn


Okay, now i'm really sad. I did find your cool purse/bag pattern at one of the sites mentioned, but that's it.
Your free pattern is the stocking only.
Which i totally understand.
It's just that i want them all. (I know, it's very gluttonous of me. But, they look simple to make, and with your fabrics- I will be the envy of all stay-at-home moms.)
I will send my email address to your contact link and hopefully i will have pattern peace at last.
