It's official, I'm a terrible blogger. Can I just say that there is not enough time in the day to work, be a mom, have an internet sales job, be a good neighbor and friend, fulfill my church related duties, keep a clean house, do the laundry and cook dinner I might add. I guess next year's resolution is to Simplify and make things much easier on myself.

New Fabrics from Riley Blake Sunny Happy Skies Collection. They scream spring!

Check out the amazing END OF THE YEAR SALE we have in our shop. THE SEW SWEET SHOPPE

As Christmas is nearing I am very grateful for the Birth of our Savior. I am so thankful to him for the big part that he has in my life. I am blessed every day knowing that he is there guiding me. Joshua 1:9 has become my strength: "For the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest." I wish you all a Merry Christmas and may you find strength in him throughout the next year!

With Love,
The Sew Sweet Shoppe

I'm "Delighted"

I'm delighted to have Riley Blake's "Delighted" cottons by The Quilted Fish available in the shop. Yes I know that was a bit cheesy, but I couldn't resist. These prints are so cheerful!

For the hundredth time I can't post photos....argh! I swear blogger hates me! Why can't I post photos? Can't a girl just post some pics? Pretty please!

Check out the prints in our shop. You can click on our Etsy sidebar.

So many fun things going on at home. Baby girl turned two, the temps are beginning to drop and I can feel a taste of fall in the air, little league football firsts and soccer firsts for the kiddos and of course with football here I am now a single mom again. Just kidding, only on Saturdays :)

Hope everyone is enjoying a taste of fall in your neck of the woods.

The Midnight Secret Garden Line by the talented Sandi Henderson!

These prints are absolutely gorgeous! I wish I had more time to quilt/sew. Lately life's been so busy. I think I may need to plan a sewing retreat or vacation soon.

Also I am looking for any tips on posting pics to blogger. I have never had a problem until I've started this blog. My blogs I've had previously have worked out just fine when posting pics. I think I lucked out when I posted the two posts. It seems that if I save the image as a GIF that it will work occasionally, but I am very frustrated and tired of the photoless posts. I am definitely in need of some tech support here. I welcome all comments/suggestions.

I'm sure by now you have all heard of Pinterest. In my spare time (which lately there hasn't been a lot) I like to check out the pins of my friends.

It's such a great site to share/post ideas. This is something I just Pinned to my Sewing Fav Board.

You can also find this adorable outfit on Etsy by the talented Jeannine McCloskey of Kinder Kouture Clothing.

Hey everyone, I thought it would be fun to share with you some of my favorite things. Hence the Theme "MY FAV MONDAY'S". Even though our blog is dedicated to our Etsy Shop it is always fun to see a little of this that and it gives you more insight on myself and who I am and it's great way to show you who's behind the shop itself. So with that said, (Oh that totally sounded straight out of the BACHELOR) hopefully to some of you they will be new things and to some of you they won't, but nonetheless it's a little piece of myself.

So here goes:

10 Years ago as a wedding gift, my hubs and I received some amaaaazzing Mexican Vanilla! How amazing? So amazing that you won't want to cook with anything else. Sadly, when that first bottle was gone I was devastated.

Well, what do you know that a few years ago it was featured on an Episode of Martha Stewart Living. I kept thinking I'm going to get online and order some Vanilla. Well that never happened.

Last night hubs wanted to make Snickerdoodles and he delivered right down to the last drop of vanilla in the pantry. So that prompted me to head over to their site and order some of the world's best vanilla. (Oh, baby I can already taste it!)

I can't wait for it to arrive and make some yummy brownies, cookies, etc. If you haven't tried it you need to- It truly is amazing! It is definitely a favorite in my book.

Hoo's in The Forest

This collection is so adorable. I am seriously thinking about making some twin quilts for the girls room with this set. I am not sure of what type of quilt I want to make just yet, but I think this is the one. We are in the process of moving Baby Bug from her crib to a bed. Currently, Big Boy and Sassafrass are sharing the bunk beds and the Big Boy will soon have his own room. He is super excited, as am I! Sassafrass is excited to share a room with the Baby Bug too! Everybody wins! It's going to be wonderful, but lots to do in between work at the Dental Office, computer class and the vacationing that comes along with summer. I've hunkered down to a July 23rd(my birthday!)deadline of painting the rooms and the bunk beds to be more girl friendly. They are a bit rustic looking so I'm not sure how that will work, but I don't want to buy new furniture. We will make it work.

Miss Modd by Chelsea Andersen

I am super excited to have these in the shoppe. They just arrived this afternoon, and I can't wait to get my hands on these to make some dresses/skirts for my little girls. This is the first line of fabric designed by Chelsea Andersen of Henry Glass Fabrics. I have been a fan of Chelsea's from the time I laid my eyes on her wonderful patterns. You can check out Miss Modd fabric in the shoppe as well as Chelsea's patterns. The possibilities of creating are endless!

What will you be doing for April Fool's Day?

Image Poppies at Play

Wouldn't this be funny to see these signs marking every home on your street. If I had enough guts I think I would totally do this. I didn't realize that tomorrow was April Fool's Day. It totally snuck up on me this year. I have never been one to carry out jokes every year, but I know my kids would eat it up.

About Me

I have enjoyed sewing for quite some time. Well quite frankly, I just love to create things with beautiful materials, but my love for fabric started as a child. My mother made a fabulous quilt of Betsy Ross sewing the American Flag. I thought it was amazing and I was always impressed with her talent. It wasn't until college that I took a quilt making class and fell in love with quilting and fabrics. Recently I enjoy sewing clothing for my two girls. I knew that I had to share my passion for beautiful fabrics and fun and funky patterns with others. So I took a leap and started my own Etsy shop last summer. Come check us out and help spread the word.
