Janelle's Scottie, Fabric and The Paper

Made as a gift and soon to be shipped, I had to steal away this little scottie for a quick photo shoot. Super cute softies must be shared.

The pattern is a freebie from the wonderful Denyse Schmidt. You can get it from her site or simply click here. Janelle opted not to embellish her scottie with eyes and a scarf or collar. She said she couldn't find the right buttons for his eyes that didn't make him look scary. I laughed, but only because I'm familiar with this dilemma. Anyhow, I support her design decision to leave him this way, because he's super cute just as he is!

Designer Denyse Schmidt is also the genius behind my current favorite fabric line Hope Valley. And now that I've mentioned it I realize that I never shared photo's of these beauties with you here (only here and here and here)... oops, sorry 'bout that.

Here you go.

These prints have been in the shoppe for a few weeks now but a bit newer, from Denyse, are 4 great quilt patterns. Traditional with a vintage-modern charm, they make me look forward to my up coming quilt class with Mary, even more than I already am.

And one last share before I go...

My awesome mom (Anita) is in the paper today! Yay! I am so happy and proud.
She was interviewed last week for a Q&A article about our little shoppe. Find it in the Life and Arts section of today's Columbus Dispatch under "Shop Talk". Or view the article online, here.

That's all for now,
:) April
