I have been whining about my camera (and it's lack of performance) for a while now. Thanks to Gina and Penny, I think that I may be on the right track now with my new Canon G9. It's got an anti-jiggle feature...which has been a problem for me since I started taking pictures with my Kodak Instamatic "back in the day".
Just about the time my camera started giving me nothing but aggravation, I got a mystery package in my post box...I was baffled. I opened it in the parking lot at the post office...Wee hoo! it was a Pam Kitty bag! It's been a heck of a long time for me to keep this secret, so here it is...
Turns out PK is not only a "stunt sewer" for the industry's finest, she's also a wiz with electronic embroidery gadgets, ric rac and the picking out the cutest combinations of fabric EVER! In the meantime, I know that I am a little late to the party, because Brenda, Elizabeth and Monica all have blogged about her fabulous bags already...(and each one is cuter than the next!)
Now that I have a camera again, let's play catch up. It's like Pam knew exactly what I needed...
Here's TWCTB* bag again with some of our new Doll Dress Collection fabrics. This new collection was inspired by some antique doll dresses that I have collected over the years, and was designed to blend with the Cherry Baby collection that we introduced at Fall 2008 Quilt Market. I'm loving how that black and white bag looks with the new fabrics, don't you?
As a matter of fact, here's a little sneak peek at a quilt that I designed and my own stunt quilter Cheryl Winslow made for McCall's Quilting. It's scheduled to be in the April 2009 issue, which will be on your newsstand in February. BTW, for those of you who like circles as much as I do, Cheryl's long arm "signature" is her circle quilting.
The new swatches for the Doll Dresses Collection are live on the LHDG site, so swing by and take a peek. The first wave of this fabric is due to hit the stores in October. Some of my favorite designers are already toiling away with some of the sample yardage that we just got in from overseas, more on these projects as they become available.
Lots more to show and tell--yet another magazine quilt, a new doggie (lots of pics & a story to got with her that will will rip your heart out) and a special event here on HOLLYBLOG.
Back in two shakes...
