A fun collection to celebrate DIY Home Builders. One of my latest collection of designs in fabric available at Spoonflower . I sewed a couple of hats and the leftover fabric found it’s way into a purse. I got my daughters to stand still long enough to take photos of them wearing their hats. I think my daughters made terrific models for the hats. One of the hats I used a pattern I got from http://indygojunction.com. I used the fabric from Spoonflower, Cypress Cotton Canvas it has a 56″ wide printable area. I just loved working with the new fabric from Spoonflower494649384942Tear Sheet DIY 1Tear Sheet DIY 2


If you are in need of pillows, upholstery, maybe that dress you always wanted to make, or a T-shirt. Now you can add some southwestern flair to it, with my Southwestern Design collections. Designed with some of the colors that are destined to make it into 2019 collections! Also check out my shop at; My Fabric Designs. They have a variety of fabrics to choose from. I like their Premium Cotton. Premium Cotton has a 54” wide printable area, you can’t beat that. You can also buy a swatch book of fabrics so you know what your fabric will be printed on. You can always contact me to let me know if you need a special color or the scale adjusted.Southwwestern Tear Sheet-1

Weathered Barns

Where my family and I live, the country side is full of old family barns. Some are just barely standing and some have seen their better days. There are many new barns on the landscape too. However, the old ones with weathered wood and peeling paint always catch my attention. I imagine when the family first built them and the hopes and dreams they held for their families. It is such a part of America. I purposely made the paintings simple, because I thought the barns were the important part. There are a series of four paintings.

These are original acrylic paintings that I have painted on gesso board. The paintings are 8X8 inch paintings. Perfect for anyone that likes farm house decor. You can see them on my  Etsy Shop

Roosters Every Where!

I have been painting up a storm! I hadn’t painted in a while and my daughter wanted some paintings for her birthday. She had redecorated her down stairs, she is in love with navy blue now. I did some practice paintings to get over being rusty , she snatched them up. So it was on to creating the ones she had specified that she wanted. Well the muse had hit! I couldn’t stop painting so I have the paintings above and more on my Etsy shop .

Since we live on a small farm, we of course love the farm house look.  I think it is special as it  has such a comforting, comfortable feeling.
