There is nothing better on a cool winter morning than the aroma of freshly baked sweet buns - butter, cinnamon, raisins, toasted nuts, all drizzled with sticky icing. These wonderful confections are the inspiration for my 2017 Easter bunnies. They have all the sweetness without the calories...

Ever since my sister starting raising chickens, I've been fascinated with all the different varieties she has; Silkies, Frizzles, Show Girls, and of course Easter Eggers. She always has a bowl full of beautiful coloured eggs to display - pastel blue, pink, buff, olive green and dark brown speckled. These are the inspiration for my Easter Egger hens, each one holding a different colour egg from natures glorious palette...

The cold and dreary days of January seem to just drag on with no cheery holidays to lift the spirits. What better time to think ahead to February when everything hearts become all the rage. These little sweethearts will hopefully bring a smile and add some warmth to fend off the winter chill. My little calico kitty is ready to cuddle or perhaps a little puppy love with slobbery kisses...

Frosty mornings and cooler winds begin to turn my thoughts to the approaching holiday season. It's time to start making Snowballs and Santas! This year there will be a few other magical friends joining the collection... snow white kitties in woolly Santa hats and a grungy prim barn owl with his little mouse...

It's been a hectic summer here, but finally, I'm able to get back to work on what I love to do most - working with fabric! The fall and Halloween season is already booming and I'm a little behind. I decided to do things a little different this year and focus on characters that represent the warm colours of autumn - rich spicy shades of orange, rust, tan and of course a bit of black for a Halloween touch. Black cats and ravens and maybe a pumpkin head or two...

Birds of a feather... what better way to greet the coming summer months than with these gentle airy creatures. A simple form with rusty wire feet, coffee stained, painted, and rubbed with cinnamon. Grungy, with aged cotton fabric and wool to add softness and warmth. My new little birdie friends will fly straight to your heart with their simple folk art charm.

I've always loved the look of Americana folk art... primitive forms in red, white and blue that all fit together in such a cheerful, colorful way. Wooden boxes, tin stars, quilts and Uncle Sam dolls add warmth to any vintage inspired room. Patterns of stars and stripes that compliment each other, aged in coffee and vanilla for a wonderful, primitive look.
