One of my all time favorite things about fall are the beautiful blue skies. A fall blue just feels so different from a summer blue- crisp clean and exciting! Add in some organic apple cider and it’s shaping up to be a beautiful season.

Lately I’ve been on a blue kick with the Whipstitch Softies, here are some of my current favorites. I love the vintage blue floral fabric! There’s also a little family of squid on the way.

DaWanda is a new website designed for crafters and artisans to promote and sell their wares, similar to ETSY (which all of us in North America are so familiar with). I love DaWanda because of the European flavor and the more international variety of sellers. And so, I’ve made the leap, and begun listing my creations on DaWanda!

Stop by DaWanda and visit the Whipstitch Backstitch shop here.

I am completely addicted to buying  fabric. And once I buy some, cutting into it is so hard! But of course the end result is always worth the initial trauma.

I’ve just finished cutting out a ton of chest pieces for the Song Birds, using some great new fabrics. The brown is actually a pair of vintage pants that I bought just for these little birds, adorable! The pretty little blue floral is vintage bed sheeting, and so wonderfully soft.

I’m looking forward to sitting and embroidering songbird wings and hoot owl eyes for the next week while I’m on vacation. I find hand-sewing very relaxing. Should come in handy once midterms arrive in the fall!

I’m very excited to be leaving for beautiful Gabriola Island this weekend! It’s one of my favorite vacation spots, and my family has been going there since I can remember.

In preparation I’ve been cutting like crazy, as I hope to spend much of my days embroidering wings on songbirds while relaxing in the sun! Tons of songbirds have begun their lives, as have owls in some awesome new patterns.

Don’t the sheets of felt look so great all arranged by colour? I have this strange tendency to want to arrange everything by colour, even hand-fulls of skittles! Keep an eye out, I’ve got some wonderful new fabrics to show you.
