Hi everyone! You haven't seen much activity from me lately because I've been busy! I've been focusing on homeschooling mostly, and I have been doing some non-Forshee Designs sewing work. Colleen at Some Art Fabric asked me to make some bag samples for her, and I've also been doing some pattern testing for an upcoming sewing book! I delivered the samples to Colleen without photographing them! Oops! You'll just have to take my word for it that they were fabulous.

Yesterday, I made some new placemats for my table. The fabric is called Dandelion in raspberry from Patty Young's Flora & Fauna line. I wish I had more of this so I could make some napkins! I'll be doing that soon, don't worry!

I'm Somebody Now!

First, enjoy this clip from The Jerk:

Now, we can move on with the blog post.


Well, I've always been somebody. However, yesterday I feel like I'm on the Etsy map. First, I was part of a treasury that made Etsy's front page at 7 am:

Front Page!
Thanks to Lara Lewis ( for adding me to the treasury and Kelly McCants ( for letting me know I was on the front page! I don't get up that early so I never would have seen it!

THEN I was included in an Etsy finds email that went out:

All the hoopla resulted in almost 100 shop hearts and oodles and oodles of item hearts, which is fantastic! It feels good to be somebody!
