What I've Been Up To...


I'm busy working on new patterns to be 
released when my newest fabric line...
 becomes available...


Which is in about 4 weeks time....
I'm so looking forward to it!



Millie's Closet comes in 3 color ways...
 and this week I am working on the
 Blue/Green combo.


For this color way I chose to pair up my favorite apple green with my 2 favorite blues...aqua and cobalt.


I have used my all time favorite shade of gray in all 3 color ways.
 These are the 3 solids in the line that go with the blue/green combo.


I wish I could show you what I am creating 
with these lovely colors...and the time will soon come when I can!



In between drawing and sewing I have been reading Jennifer Chiaverini's 
latest book which is hot off the press...


So far I have had to force myself to put it down because it's so good!!!
I love every one of Jennifer's books as you well know because I have told you about them often and this one has proven to be no different.

Soooo....that's what I've been up to the last few days.
How about you?
Whatever you've been doing...
I certainly hope it involves a
 book and/or fabric....
one of the best combinations that I know:)

Pin It!

Very pretty fabric. Just when I say I am not going to buy any fabric for a while, I see another beautiful collection like yours. Eek!!! Good thing it isn't out yet.

I've been quilting on a project that seems like there is never an end.

Happy Valentine's Day ♥

How did you get the book a week before it's release date? No Fair! Mine will be here a week from today. Millie's Closet looks like fun to play in.

Kathleen Grace said...

You have a gorgeous new line and I can't wait to see what you come up with for patterns. Your patterns are always so wonderful!

JCnNC said...

My favorite colorway - so fresh looking and can't wait to see what your creative spirit comes up with. Yes, I can't wait to get my hands on Jennifer's new book. Judy C sends best wishes.

Patricia Lessell said...

My only problem will be which colorway to choose. I LOVE IT!! Also Jennifer Chiaverini's books which I have only started reading this week - I'm on book 3 and loving every word. They are as amazing as your new fabric.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I can't wait to see what patterns you come up with for your new line of fabric Lori! The green and blue are beautiful.

Sandy said...

Love the blues and greens. Can't wait to see what you have been creating. I, too, love all of Jennifer's books and even though I have a Kindle now, I always buy hers in hardback. That is the way I started with her many years ago with the first Elm Creek book. Have not gotten the new one yet....soon!

Teresa Felgueiras said...

Many people wouldn't mix blue and green but I think they match perfectly. Can't wait to see what you're up to.

kcro62 said...

The fabrics are gorgeous! Blues and greens work so beautifully together xx

notes of sincerity said...

Millie's Closet reminds me so much of the blouses my Nanny use to wear. :o) I am looking forward to when they arrive on the market. :o) You have the sweetest designs and I can't wait to see what you created with your newest line. :o)
My creativity has been crochet. :o) I am finishing the border on my granny stripe blanket. It keeps me close to Woody when he needs me. :o)

My Vintage Mending said...

lots of stitching and hand sewing at my studio. I have been enjoying my patterns so. I must admit it is hard to wait for these gorgeous fabrics. Even if they fold and beautifully hover on the shelf....enjoy your read...smiles...Renee
