Three New Northcott Designs

After a bit of delay, shops now have the new Northcott Naturescapes fabric in stock and I designed three patterns for it!

Back home for a bit-Phew!!!

Summer was supposed to be down time for reorganizing and designing-didn’t turn out that way though I did get a few finished.

Postcards from Muskoka Block 8 The Cottage

Even the rich and famous flock there for a bit of R&R (and hopefully a bit of anonymity, or at least quiet!). There are some pretty swanky places in and around the area, but […]
