It's a Set!

Once the designing bug gets's impossible to ignore.  I'm surrounded by fabric that I buy for my fabric department at The Grove, and of course I only buy what I like!  So-o-o, I just can't keep my hands off them!  I've designed a new Tote Bag, it crosses boundaries from Beaders to Knitters to those who are courageous enough to carry a multi-print bag! Let's just say they ARE colorful!

The prints just didn't stay put on the bag, but jumped into a beadmat for beaders and then into a thread catcher (for both beaders, knitters and sewers).  

 Gypsy Flower

This sold really quickly...the thread catcher is gone already, but I've created a new line of thread catchers that will you'll see if you're in Milwaukee in June at the Bead and Button Event.  I'll be in booth 410.  After the show you can find them on my website: and in The Grove!

Parson Gray

Last year textile designer Amy Butler's  husband decided to enter into the textile design business.  An accomplished musician, he started creating a different kind of music, using fiber instead of notes.  His line is called Parson Gray and is a wonderful collection of pale blues, greys, creams and blacks infused with a definite masculine slant! 

I've brought into The Grove, 3 bolts of my favorite Parson Gray prints....Trade Blanket, Coral Reef and Cocoons!

He's made the scarf out of Trade Blanket and Cocoons is on lower left square on the back ground.

Below is one of Amy's booth's at the they say..."opposites attract"!
