I was certainly privileged to collaborate with four friends on our contribution to the She Who Sews Blog Hop. Together we designed and created several items, pincushion & paperdoll pillows for the comfy couch in our Joy Studio and others to wear. Allow me to introduce these skilled sewers and quilters, through their beautiful projects listed below.

  2. I was really busy getting my stash of this fabric…love it all. The projects so far are great, love the purse and dresses. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

  3. There’s only one problem with your fabric lines: once I get my paws on them, I don’t want to cut them up and use them! Look forward to seeing these cuties in person. Love the little girl’s dress and doll, and the purse would definitely tell the world what I love to do.

  4. Janet, these are all wonderful. I must wrap a canvas for my sewing room (studio). When does a sewing room become a studio. It sounds so much better that way.
