Back to the blog...

It has been a VERY long time since I paid attention to my blog... almost 5 years at this point. So much has changed in my personal and professional life for the better, at least that is what I tell myself. 
Glass half full... right?

Since 2007, I have lucky enough to play with Japanese fabrics while raising a family. My company has evolved and is constantly changing as it grows, with occasional learning opportunities along the journey. 

I began importing 55-70 meter rolls and hand bolting them to manufacturers and fabric/quilt shops around the world. My two oldest would help me on occasion at the office... primarily Thing 2 would prance around in lots of different clothing samples I had for trade shows.

Currently, my office is filled with bolts, bundles, trims and Japanese toys available for retail. Fabrics prints come from over a dozen different Japanese textile companies including Kokka, Yuwa, Cosmo Textile, Lecien, Sevenberry and many others. The office is a bright rainbow of kawaii goodness that is definitely a home away from home for me. Thing 4 (the same age of Thing 2 in 2008) loves to spend time there and is usually assisting in some capacity.

Overall, life is great and I look forward to sharing with you on a regular basis.

I just adore the mushroom and hedgehogs. They are really straight pins but I just had to find them a sweet little home among the moss.

They were created by a lovely lady in the UK! Posh Plushies sells their items www.poshplushies.etsy.com and they are FANTASTIC!!!!

It's A Fairytale...

Little Red Riding Hood Japanese Fabric

Well, kinda... The skirt is made of the Japanese fabric with Little Red Riding Hood on it. I love this little skirt. I used the Amy Butler pattern and have had SO many compliments on it. YEAH! Anyways, it still needs to unravel a little more...

Where did it go?

You know sometimes I wonder where my day goes. Where do the hours get spent? Sometimes it is getting my job done or sometimes I spend time looking at other's blogs and creative ideas.

So one of my new favorite blogs to look at is: http://todayscreativeblog.blogspot.com/
It is so wonderful to look at Todays Creative Blog and see what else is out there. I have been looking through the archives and getting "very distracted" from my work. But it is giving me the itch to start sewing again. I miss it.

I have begun to come up with my next project. You would think maybe I would want to plan a "small" one since it has been awhile. NOPE! I am going to make Christmas Stockings for my family. I will be getting hedgehogs (promise it will look better than my bad drawing) and toadstools. Ellie will get a princess theme. Edwin will get robots and space themes....
