My Gracie Girl with Gracie Girl!!!!...


Well hello cute people!!!
We are back from our annual July fishing/camping trip
at Fish Lake (more on that later)
I had a great time with family and friends...
and I even got to relax a bit!


When the pre-yardage for Gracie Girl arrived...
Kassidy Grace was at girls camp so she didn't get to see it! 


As soon as she got home...
I just had to do a mini photo shoot with my Gracie Girl...
and


I asked her to sit in the middle of her bedroom floor...


and I piled some cuts of 
Gracie Girl around her.


She really didn't even get a chance yet to look at each piece closely
before I started snapping away!


Can I just tell you how pleased we are with how our
first mother/daughter fabric collection turned out?


The colors are sew vibrant and spot on!


They will go in her bedroom just perfectly:)


I love this shot...

it looks like Kassidy's wearing a Gracie Girl skirt!


She loves the fat quarter panels that are included in the collection...
and can't decide which one is her favorite.


Neither can I...because I love them all!


We chose to do medium to large scale prints for this line...
the scale will work perfectly for all of the things we have planned to sew up.

(Ummm...just noticed my toes got into this shot...whoops:)


The first thing that Kassidy is making a fun modern quilt she has called Shuffle...
pattern and pictures to come!


I think she is a bit overwhelmed
 with all of the possibilities...
it's been a long wait for the fabric to get into her hands:)
It seems like Christmas morning!!!


We painted her bedroom last year at the same time that we designed Gracie Girl and she has been waiting impatiently ever since to make lots of fun things for her room.


She chose all of the paint colors for her room to match our Gracie Girl collection.
We painted pretty much everything in her room
in these yummy colors!


She used a few of my usual happy colors like 
aqua, green, pink and gray...


And then she added navy and orange to the mix.


The navy works as a nice dark contrast for the other colors...


And the orange and raspberry pinks are so delicious!


We are having so much fun playing with 
Gracie Girl...
 and we hope that you want to play with it too:)


And speaking of ...
(no..I havn't forrgotten)
It's time to announce the winner of last weeks giveaway
from my book announcement:)

you are the best!
xx

How exciting for both of you, I love the fabric. You need to frame the picture of Kassidy with the fabric looking skirt. Her hair is breathtaking! Ps. Love the color of her dresser

Love both of the Kassidy girls. Material and daughter. I preordered the book and can't wait to get it and also buy some of the material. It is going to be so fun. I can just imagine how excited your daughter is. She looks so great in all of the material.

what a fun looking line: and Kassidy is looking so grown up! I'm sure you are trying to slow that down!! And I just got back from a road trip to Utah and Idaho where I got to pick up 12 FQ's of your Bake Sale line! Can't wait to start on those: they will be for Christmas gifts: pot holders and such!! Can't wait to get my copy of your book too!! (pre-ordered from the FQ Shop!!)

I love this line, such fun colors. But I must say that your Gracie Girl is much more beautiful than the fabric! What wonderful photos you took - it does look like she is wearing a skirt of the fabric. Can't wait to get to use this.
