New Summer Santa Freebie Design

We also have a NEW Freebie Design for you! 

Our Summer Santa RedWork Tea Towel pattern is ready to print and embroider.  Santa was having so much fun with his feet in the lake we had to stitch his picture on a tea towel.  Fun for summer and fun next December when it is cold outside.


As always, I printed Santa on Sticky Fabri-Solvy  to get a QUICK start on my embroidery.  Just print the pattern from your computer and then copy the design onto Sticky Fabri-Solvy to finger press onto your towel.  So fast and accurate with a super surface to embroider on your cotton towel.

More Vacation Photos

Another photo or two from Idaho.  This one includes Robin’s son, Jeffrey and grandkids Anika (11) and Zane (8).  Jeffrey is the “tech” guy for Bird Brain Designs.  He is responsible for how great our website looks and works.  Many of you have gotten email help from him – thank goodness!  The little people have long and wonderful days riding bikes, going to soccer camp and having a wonderful summer around Hailey, Idaho.


As yesterday’s blog said, we toured and ate our way through 2 days in Idaho.  Breakfast at the Bakery in Stanley.  Stanley is a tiny town in the mountains north of Sun Valley.  The town is the meeting place for white water rafting.  The Salmon River runs along the edge of the town.  This year ALL the rivers we saw were overflowing with rushing water from our wet winter.


Summer is fun, we hope you are all enjoying yours!

Summer is Flying By

Seems we have been away more than at home and in the studio.  We are leaving again on Monday to drive to Long Beach to get set up on Wednesday and Thursday for the BIG Long Beach Quilt Festival.  The show is right on the marina and water at the Long Beach Convention Center.  A super place to visit – both the show and enjoying the fun right close by!

R and T Idaho

Here we are (Tina on left, Robin on right) on our 2 day vacation in the wilds of Idaho after the fun Denver show July 7-9.  Robin’s son and family live in Hailey right next to Sun Valley, Idaho.  Had great fun touring the fabulous countryside and eating wonderful food.

More “on the road” with the birds soon.  I will get back into my blogging when we return from Long Beach.  Let’s see what photos we can get there!

Hope you are enjoying your summer and get in some precious and relaxing stitching time.
