Decorating for autumn...

I recently spent a day decorating the yard for fall. I brought home mums in various colors, some pansies and a couple of pumpkins, switching out the spent summer flower baskets for more autumnal beauty. Naturally, I had some help from Miss Emily.
I also put Tilly’s halloween costume on her ~ she makes an adorable witch, doesn’t she?
Wishing all of you a lovely day...

A favorite pattern & a sneak peek...

My Purple Punch pattern was featured on Spoonflower today, included in their listing of latest favorites. You can see it about halfway down, on the far right.

Here’s a closer look:

This also gives me the chance to give you a sneak peek at some pretty awesome news: you can now buy furniture in my fabric patterns. Specifically, two types of chairs, one of which is shown above. More on that to come. 
In the meantime, you can find fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap in this Purple Punch pattern here. For home decor items in this pattern, including the awesome chair pictured at the top, click here.

So, this is pretty cool...

Really, it is super cool. So here goes: You can now buy my fabric designs in pillows, napkins, placemats and kitchen towels to feather your nest! And it’s all thanks to Spoonflower.


Spoonflower, which prints and sells fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap in designs from independent and hobby designers like me, has opened a new online business called Roostery Home Decor. You can now purchase the home decor items I mentioned above in all the designs that are available on Spoonflower. I’ve pulled together a sampling of some of my designs, shown here, to give you a little taste.
If you have been through the Spoonflower site, you’ve seen just how much fabulousness there is available. The one issue has always been if you weren’t a sewer. But now thanks to Roostery, you can enjoy all those fabulous designs without having to worry about the sewing part. Of course, you can still buy fabric, wallpaper & gift wrap on Spoonflower, too; Roostery just offers finished product. 


Here’s how it works: find a pattern you love, decide which home decor items you want (there are previews, which is what I am showing here of some of my designs, so you can see approximately how the designs look on the various items), and place your order. The fabric is then printed and each item is then sewn by Roostery, right here in the USA. Then it ships to you. The items aren’t cheap, but when you consider you’re getting custom printing and sewing in a unique pattern that isn’t mass-produced, the prices aren’t unreasonable. 

I hope you’ll stop by and check it out ~ Roostery really is an awesome addition to the creative world. If you are interested, you can see more of my designs on Roostery here. To see my designs on Spoonflower, click here. Have a great day and I hope you enjoy looking around!
