Oh, I can totally imagine how she must have looked saying 'ouch' to that lady. Very funny! I wish her lots of fun in school and for you lots of free creative time ofcourse. I can't wait to see what wonderful things you will create in this new space of time :-)

Shelley - I so remember the days when I was excited to have some time to myself!! Don't blink or your oldest will be in high school :) Time sure does seem to fly once they're all in school! Congratulations on all you successes and best of luck to you!


those pillows look wonderful and so does hazel's skirt. what fabric did you use on the skirt?


Hazel's skirt was made with fabric from Heather Bailey's latest line, Nicey Jane. The pink and red polka dot ribbon was purchased at Michael's craft store. Glad you like it! Hazel does too - she wants to wear it all the time.


I've only commented once or twice in the whole time I've been following your blog. I just wanted you to know how much I enjoy your writing, photographs, and sewing. I picked you for a Beautiful Blog Award over on my blog. I hope that's okay. I just really wanted to share your great blog with others. You can take a look at here if you'd like...

Hi there

I have a huge favour to ask! (Odd asking a favour of someone you don't know!).... do you happen to remember the name and fabric house of the passion flower fabric? I fell in love with that fabric a few years ago and have desperately been trying to find some - even if its just a meter, but i can't for the life of me remember who made it.... although i think it was just called Passion Flower.

Thanks so much! And what a lovely blog you have!



Hi Jess -
It's by P Kaufmann, and you're in luck - I have a little more than 2 yards in my stash if you'd like to buy it from me, plus some window panels already sewn if you're interested. Please email me (the contact me button at the top right sidebar) and we can work out the details.
Thanks! Shelley

I've categorized my creative endeavors into seven main areas, hence the 7 Layers; Textile/Pattern design, Sewing, Photography, Interior/Landscape design, Painting/Drawing, Monotypes/Printmaking, and Baking/Cake Decorating. There. I think that's 7(ish). You're welcome to use any of my ideas for personal use, but please do not copy and sell the things/ideas you see here without my permission. Thanks, and enjoy!
