something new for BG & HB

whoooaaaaa...remember me?

these poor, poor neglected blogs of mine. :)

okay - to fill you in a bit, brownie-goose is now stationed out of athens, ga in a house that is amidst renos/unpacking/hooligans/etc. my sewing room is all still in boxes and will remain that way for at least another month, if not more. i've got to get my husband started in his new job, louisa settled in kindergarten (sniff) and nash in mother's morning out (sniff again). and then, it is momma's turn!

but, in the meantime i have been getting some of the dock of the bay patterns up in the shop for you to sew and love, and i have to admit...the pictures i have seen of the work you ladies have done, wow - yall rock it for real!

well, i have another coming out this week - and something really fun, new and exciting to try with it. ready??

if you follow me on facebook, you are no stranger to HBfabrics. hilary (the girl behind HB) has been my fabric supplier since the get-go. she is awesome like that and has been such a huge help to BG when planning collections, keeping my secrets, helping me out with discontinued fabrics (which we all know i tend to love a little too much), etc. and i think you all know how i like to support a fellow momma out there working to stay home with her chirrens (and she just had the sweetest little girl, who i like to call baby HB to make 3). anyways, if you haven't ordered from her is your perfect chance!

HB and BG are teaming up! 

i can hardly stand my excitement in this! this week (tuesday), i will publish the tilly pattern

in the etsy shop and if you order in the first 3 days (offer expires midnight of thursday the 26th) -  i email you the pattern AND a discount code good for 15% off your order at HBfabrics. because we all know...there is NO such thing as too much fabric, and you need fabric to make a pattern, right? ;)

while writing this blog i decided to cruise hilary's shop to see what all she has in right now and i picked out a few of my faves for the tilly and thought i would share.

  • this print makes me smile - does your little one have some denim shorts? if so, i think it would make the perfect outfit!

  • and this one, we all know that BG loves a chevron (and guess what, so does HB! she has tons of them) and this yellow is dying for a big fat navy or grass green button in the back!

  • and now, for my fave...seriously - if someone doesn't make a tilly out of these two gorgeous fabrics to pair with some polka summer sailors soon i just might fall out. if i knew where my sewing machine was, i'd be all over this one right now. plus - michael miller used the word "thar" and we all know i LOVE me some sailor/pirate talk. :)

might i mention she also has buttons? eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeks. danger for the girl behind BG. that i have convinced myself that i "need" new fabric (it is truly an addiction, but the way i see it is that there are many worse things i could be addicted to, you buttons) let me get back to putting the finishing touches on that tilly. :)

so, fun, fun news - new pattern this week and fabric coupon! hot diggity dog!

Thinking you should do this regularly... I mean, who can pass up a sale! Can't wait for all your new patterns, but then, it's probably a good thing not all at once, or I'd loose my sanity..
