Watercolor Fruit Quilt Fabric Samples

  A few more of my Spoonflower fabric samples are ready and the colors are so nice for summer!  Fabrics in blues, reds and yellows.   This is "Cherries and Berries Picnic Quilt" fabric .  A pretty blue and white quilt style fabric design with strawberries, blueberries, cranberries and cherries.     A bright colorful hearts patterned fabric called "Warm Hearts"  that would look really cute in a child's room or garment!    And a yellow and pink floral called "Yellow Floral Dot" featuring cosmos flowers and pink daisy style flowers.   Cute for kitchens and summer linens!  

Hand Dyed Flosses and Linen Cross Stitch Fabric

  I have some new additions to my shop!  A set of pink Gentle Art Sampler flosses to begin. I'll be gradually listing some flosses, fabrics, different embroidery and cross patterns and unique vintage items I've been coming across for a while and want to add to my Artfire shop.        Some lovely Weeks Dye Works flosses in brown tones .  I like to put them in collections of five since the colors look so nice together.   And a set of really nice 28 ct. linen fabric in soft white and a cafĂ© latte color .  These are really nice for smaller projects, especially for the holidays!

Honey Bee Pink Blossoms Watercolor Fabric

  I received some more of my Spoonflower samples back and think they printed out nicely.  This one is called  Pink Fruit Blossoms & Bees   with rows of flowers.  Would make a cute skirt!   And some coreopsis flowers called "Pink Flower Dot" drawn in ink with watercolor in a dot style pattern.   Some bright red hearts that would be cute for Valentine's Day.    Colorful fabric collection for summer.  Kind of a farmer's market collection.     

Ocean Beaches Summer Gifts

  Since it has been in the 100s here lately I've been thinking of the beach.  I started browsing ocean beach gifts and found a few things to share starting with this ocean scene photograph pillow       And I loved this monogram luggage tag in ocean colors for your vacation to the beach.    A very cute ocean sea creatures clock wedding gift or you can customize it how you wish.    For every day use, some blue and white starfish address labels to remember the beach after you've come home.  Unless you're really lucky and get to live there.    And my favorite of all this By the Sea poster with the Adirondack chair and sun hat.  Love it. 

Sunflowers for Summer

  Browsing online I was inspired by sunflowers so thought I'd make a post dedicated to them. I found a few favorite things starting with this phone case   These sunflower plates would be great for summer dinners on the patio and BBQs! And how about some bright sunflower pillows for the patio chairs?   This sunflower themed recipe binder would be a really nice bridal shower gift for a summer bride!    And bright sunflower stickers for crafts, letter writing, journaling and scrapbooking! I hope you enjoy browsing these colorful items and have a very happy 4th of July weekend!
