Designing by Candle Light

Here is my new mode of designing – by candle light!

A power outage for many hours in the middle of the night to late morning.  I gathered some nice brass candle sticks and got to work…..I’m an early bird!  When the sun began to rise over Clear Lake I was able to snap a picture.

Not recommended for long sessions of thinking and drawing but OK at the time!   Got a couple of ideas down on paper to finalize and get stitching for the arrival of our new fabrics….they are due to arrive in December some time – YAY.

Oh, by the way….remember our RedWork SALE continues today and is over tomorrow.

Visit the RedWork Category and pick your BBD Pattern and make your RedWork Challenge design.  Enjoy some quality Embroidery time!

Back Home in Kelseyville

We had a loooong 3 weeks away at Houston’s Market and Festival and are quite happy to be back tiny
Kelseyville and our cute little store.
Back to “normal”!

I found a lovely BIG box of 2 yards each of
A Quilter’s Garden…..our NEW Fabric Line from
Fresh Water Designs at E. E. Schenck.

A Quilter's Garden label

Of course I piled all 57 up in color families…so really fabulous to see and touch!!

Reds, Neutrals, Blues and Blacks Plus 4 shades of
“Aged to Perfection” fabrics for us to use for wonderful
Embroideries and Quilts…..can’t wait for our REAL shipment to arrive.  Will keep you posted!

At Last We are Home

It took 5 days to drive back to Kelseyville from Houston. 
We did make a detour from I-10 to I-8 and visited San Diego for part of a day.

Such a beautiful place!!  Absolutely fabulous weather and views all over the place….enjoyed a walk to La Jolla beach near Robin’s daughter’s house, a walk in La Jolla Village to lunch overlooking the seal beach in La Jolla Cove.

Lucy parked at Kate Sessions Park – we don’t fit in many other places in San Diego where every square inch of land is too valuable for large parking lots!

View from Lucy looking at the bay and Pacific Ocean.  Breathtaking! 

Smiling Jennifer and Milo coming to get us to have a quick tour of their new home and yummy lunch.

I snapped a photo of Jennifer, Milo and Tina just before heading back to I-5 and home.  Tina and I are SO HAPPY to be home again.  Back to fun designing to finish with our new A Quilter’s Garden fabric when it comes soon!

Happy Weekend All!

Festival in Houston is over until 2014

We had a great show seeing so many great shoppers.  Met lots of new people who had heard of Bird Brain Designs but had not see us “in person”. 

Heading west to California.  Anxious to put up photos of
A Quilter’s Garden, our new fabric coming soon. 
I check in with E. E. Schenck frequently to see if
“our ship has come in” yet.  Then through customs and into the warehouse to be put on rolls for us……YAY!

Back to I-10 heading west.  Honk if you see us!
