A long trip can be so inspirational! I just returned from three weeks in Paris and Venice.
I had to peek in every shop window to see the latest fashion trends and the new Fall colors. Everywhere I went little mental notes and sweeping design ideas filled my head and were etched on cafe napkins, the backs of ticket stubs and bits of scrap paper.
My LilyandEbony sewing studio is full of bright new fabrics with wonderful textures and prints. Vintage buttons and laces from Paris brocantes made their way home with me.
I have created some fabulous Winter Holiday Styles for your little ones, my best boutique customers. The first set is a pink flowing satin skirt and halter top with vintage lace inset.

This collection is for big girls and little girls alike.

Central Park, New York!

WisteriaLane just launched it's newest collection inspired from Central Park, New York.
For my LilyandEbony set I used a new pattern from Oliver and S called Bubble Dress. I am carrying the pattern on my fabric website, AllegroFabrics. It is so easy to make! I used Michael Miller's Rubber Duckie fabric (also available in my store) and a cute orange polka dot. See it here.

Back from Quilt Market....

Sunday in Portland was a day to remember. It's a long drive back and forth from Seattle, but so well worth it. It's huge, really huge. I had scheduled appointments for every hour with my reps, but in between I was able to find some new treasures for my AllegroFabrics store. I can hardly wait til they all come in. I concentrated on finding new and interesting patterns. This summer I will make samples of many of them, send them out to be modeled and post them in a new patterns section in the store.
....and the new fabrics from some of the most amazing artists....oh my gosh...they are irresistible! Sandi Henderson's new Farmer's Market is beautiful, bright, uplifting and soon to be overflowing all over my store. I got to meet Sandi and talk to her...well, I was probably not making much sense in my excitement, but she is very sweet! Her booth was easy to spot...from a distance I could see her bright red chairs that are on her blog!...Her patterns are fun...

I had a wonderful conversation with Heather Ross...She talked a bit about how her childhood inspires her imagination for her designs. She is so genuine and open. I could have listened to her for hours describing how she collected the names for those little goldfish, who the little girls are on her new Mendocino line, her summers on the beach. There is a part of her in every brush stroke that created every image on every piece of fabric. She truly is sharing her life on a fabric canvas. Needless to say, AllegroFabrics will soon be the proud owner of hundreds of yards......
Heather Bailey came by while I was drooling over Pop Garden and Bijoux her two newest (OH my!) lines. She showed me the magazine with pages of her have got to check this out...the photography is amazing and every detail makes you smile...
I put together some wonderful combinations of Heather's fabrics that will take us from now thru Holiday...what an inspiration is she is...there isn't anything she can't do!

Tina Givens has a welcoming booth that I could have camped in for hours! We talked about hew newest color ways in Annabella...those little love birds are so huggable!
Chole's Imagination was everywhere! Tina has an edge to her designs that draws me in and takes me back to Europe. I feel totally enveloped in my other world when I am among her fabrics. And as a total surprise to me, she has kids PATTERNS!!!!!!!! There were beautiful samples everywhere. You guessed it, I will soon have those patterns in my store. Here is one color way from Chloe's Imagination...this is Tina's picture...

I stopped by to wave at Robin Mynatt of Paris Bebe and my WistaSista, Des. Robin was some very wonderful new designs and colors she has added to her collection. I love talking to Robin. Her talent is amazing. She has managed to grow her business in every way. I believe there isn't anything she can't do!
Many thanks to my friend Beth, who came with me on the long I5 drive from Seattle to Portland and back. The time flew! We had fabulous clear and sunny weather. Mt St Helen's and Mt Rainier led the way home.
It could not have been a more perfect day!
