I also love teaching my sewing classes and sharing this gift that I have been blessed with. Sewing is becoming a dying art and I want to do my part in keeping it alive.

Suwanee Day

I am fortunate to live in a wonderful city, Suwanee, GA. I love this town because it gives the feel of a small hometown. Even though it is located in one of the largest counties 45 minutes from downtown Atlanta. Suwanee, GA has some of the best parks around and I enjoy walking the miles of walking trails we have. Today we celebrated Suwanee Day. This is an event that happens in September every year. Crafters set up booths and show their talents in arts, crafts and sewing. It always amazes me how many talented individuals there are. So today, I wanted to share with you some pictures of this beautiful town that I live in.

One of the things I love most about this city is the support for the arts. Suwanee has been purchasing bronze statues to be placed around Suwanee, this is one of the first purchased and is located in beautiful Sims Lake Park. This is where I walk every evening.

This is an aerial shot of the human made "S". Isn't that cool!!

This is Pierce's Corner. It is right outside the door from my design studio, which is in the building below.

The caboose is right in front of my my studio. Every Christmas they have a caboose lighting celebrations and Santa comes and the children sing Christmas carols.

This is the new City Hall located in Town Center Park. This where Suwanee Day is held.

Mixing Fabrics and Textures

I love fabrics. I am so amazed at the beautiful designs, colors and textures. I love to play with mixing fabrics and combining different color combinatons. Here are a few combinations that I think would make any home come to life.

I found these fabric combinations while surfing the web today. These combinations were from the Calico Corner web-site. It is amazing how many fabulous textile designers are out there and how creative they can be.
