Taking time to relax is so important. I'm looking forward to doing the same at my parent's home over Christmas, with most of my siblings home as well. Come to think of it, there probably won't be much 'relaxing' until after the holiday. Haha! Enjoy and have a very Merry Christmas!

Frankie and I just watched 2 Days in Paris while recouperating. It was quirky funny. Will have to try A Good Year as well. Merry Christmas. xop

The Darla fabric looks so wonderful, I cant wait to get some! You have done it again ! (Created a beautiful new line, I mean...) Glad to hear you are taking it deserve it. Happy Holidays to you and your family...



I enjoyed A good Year and the dvd is waiting for the right moment! Merry Christmas to you too. Mette, Denmark


Bummer! I missed the giveaway, but I was going to buy more than that anyway. I am just trying to decide how to use it. I am thinking about how to use it in my kitchen. I just love this line. I hope they keep it out for a long time so you can add new things for home dec. all the time.


Your fabrics are great. I'm wondering if there is a pattern for the tote bag that you have pictured in this post. Thanks!


I HAVE to tell you about Bella! Rent it on netflix or you can watch it instantly. It's a keeper! Hoping it's in my stocking tomorrow morning!!! I can't wait to try your suggestions! AND I can't wait to get to my sister's and get my hands on Darla!
Thanks for the shout out to Quilt Taffy.
Merry Christmas


Thank YOU Tanya!! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed some quiet time with your family. Thanks for the movie recommendations!


love the line and am also wondering if you are going to be sharing that awesome tote pattern? that bag would make my life easier in so many ways!! esp. when it looks that good!!


I am loving your new line and can't wait to get to sewing something up with it! Happy New Year!


I love this handbag! How great would it be to use this for groceries instead of paper or plastic?!? It's a great little bag! I can't sew but would buy this tote if someone made it!

Darla Dooms

Since my name IS Darla, it's odd to see people talking about how they're going to use Darla and getting their hands on Darla!!

Love the fabric - maybe a giveaway for those of us with the same name?? Ha!!


Hi Tanya!!!
Just wanted to pop in and wish you another beautiful, successful and creative Year!!!!
All the best wishes with a hope that we will be able to meet each other once you move to Europe;)
xoxo, Katarina


Darla is gorgeous! I missed the giveaway but I am planning a big order of your beautiful fabrics for some projects. I always love your designs.

Cheers and Happy New Year!

This fabric is so soft and feminine. Just beautiful. Congrats to the winner.

Have a great week Tanya!


I love every fabric you have created, you are a wonderful talented designer! Roses, Roses and more roses, we can never get enough of your gorgeous fabrics!

I have a question and am hoping you can help me. I have been looking for the "Flirty Skirt" pattern which was in Quilts and More Summer 2008. I can't find the magazine anywhere and would really love to the directions to make this skirt! Do you have any suggestions on where I could find it or is there a tutorial on it, like the "ruffled skirt tutorial"? Thank you so much for any help you can give me! I want to make some of them using your Ava Rose Fabrics, plus I have lots of Barefoot Roses, both of these would be so pretty with either collection. Mimi


Hi Tanya,

I've been a reader for a while, but I don't I have commented until today... have I? I can't remember, but it seems like I should have before now. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you how much I adore all of your collections. I plan on making a quilt for my daughter with Darla. Your colors and florals make my heart sing. :~)

(I too have purchased and promptly broken an antique iron bed. Not a good feeling :~))
