April is just about over and my new Great Gotham collection is out and available in fabric stores now!

Is It Spring Yet?
Don’t answer that. No really, don’t. What I will happily acknowledge is that the March/April issue of Generation Q magazine is popping up on bookstore shelves faster than daffodil blooms can make up their minds.

First Day of School: WOOT!
Well, today was the first day back to school here and for our household anyway, it was a total success! No tears, no grumbling, no sour anything of any kind! Only joy and eagerness to see friends and get straight into that wonderful classroom. So much so, in fact, that I only managed to get […]
