The beauty of a small town

We had a great time in Granville.  The historic downtown was converted into a small fair, with live music, rides for the kids and fair food.  The fireworks were in a perfect setting, we really enjoyed the whole day. 

Jeanies house was amazing.  I have never been in a house with a turret.  So very cool. 

The other cool thing, seeing Amy Butler stand in line for fair food, and then again walking back from the fireworks with her friend and her friends daughter- all holding hands.  I tried not to stare.


Alexander Henry Fabric Rocks!


Found a bolt of this fabric yesterday.  It is so yummy I just want to eat it.  I can’t decide if I want to put it up for bags or be selfish and save it all for myself. 

We are off to Granville today, a small artsy town about 20 minutes outside of town.  One of Andy’s co-workers has a big old historic house and has invited us over to watch the fireworks tonight.  There is a big festival with lots of things for kiddos so it should be a fun day.  Andy’s friend went to high school with Amy Butler (who lives and works in Granville) so maybe if we run into her I can actually meet the fabric goddess herself.  Taking the camera, hope to get lots of good pictures.

Shonda Bravinder - Hi Elisa! I just love your website. I too am a stay at home mom and love to make purses for my friends. The only problem is that I only have Joann’s to choose from and there selection is not very big. Would you be willing to tell me where you get your yummy material from? I would be forever grateful! Keep up the great work!

I am so excited to have this new blog on my website.  A way to share new fabrics and inspiration!  Very Cool.
