My friend has made it!

Jan Eleni. When I first came to know her she had an amazing shop, a tiny space on East 9th Street in NY's Greenwich village. Chock a block full of European antiques and object de arts, it was often frequented by the fabulous and fashionable. I always new she would take NYC by storm, and always thought she had star quality... But when you are featured on Decor 8's blog- your life will change forever! It's so nice when people who have worked so hard are at last rewarded with the acknowledgement they deserve. Congratulations ,Jan... I hope we will still have time for wonderful dinners at your brownstone in Brooklyn. Check out her collages made with your childs art! (Do you see a quilt here, or is it just me?)

Congratulations to Jamie of Remnants!

Jamie of Remnants blog has won the raffle! I absolutely love her blog, as you will too, and am including her on my blog roll here and at Dark Horse Farm Designs. I am particularly smitten by her last post picturing the "garden Loom" idea from Mary Jane's Farm magazine. I'm sending my husband out to the wood shop asap!
Now, you 13 faithful followers, thank you for your participating. I am so grateful that, if you like, I will send you some fat quarters from Make and Mingle. Shoot me an email with your address and I will send them off when I post Jamie her quilt.

To prepare for the launch of the GMYB website, I am raffling off a baby blanket. Yes! There will be baby bedding available. This whole cloth cheater quilt is 36''x 36''. It is a soft waffle weave cotton on the underside, perfect for swaddling a babe, or to protect you car when you take Fido (or Cheech) for a ride in the car. A quilt like this will be $50.00. This fabric is from the Sis Boom Dance with me line.
So, comment here, leave your info, and if you are really nice you will also go visit my Dark Horse Farm Designs blog. The winner will be chosen using the random number indicator on Sunday 3/14- so check in on Monday morning to see who the lucky winner is.
Oh, you don't have to have a baby to enter the raffle!

Launch this line!

I am in the throws of getting ready for my new Go Make Your Bed website. The blog is still around, but has been laying dormant over the winter months. I have been so busy at Dark horse Farm Designs with my crafting and getting the Open Sky shop up and running, poor little GMYB took the back seat for a while.
I am creating a ready made line, and also a design wall where you can go to choose the fabrics of your liking. Everything to Go Make Your Bed! Everything you need to know about ordering will be clearly explained on the site, and a FAQ page. But rest assured, I am always just a phone call or email away if you have any questions or need suggestions. In fact, I prefer to speak directly about the order before I start cutting.
The quilts pictured are all made with the new Sis Boom line, So St. Croix, and I will keep posting pictures as the come off of my sewing table. The whole collection will be very varied, so be sure to check back and see what's new.
Also, I will quilt with your fabric for a fee if you get it to me.
My quilts are also available at Make and Mingle in Fairfield, CT.
