September is just around the corner! Summer is ending, school beginning and clubs, classes start up again. September is also National Sewing Month, a personal favorite!

I am excited about this fall, our Designer Crafts Connection Blog Hop has some great creative challenges coming up the first Monday of every month, September's is party time designs. A new blog hop starts in a month with the new Sizzix Vintage Fresh dies designed by talented designer friend Eileen Hull.

I am working on several new projects. Here at home new classes and workshops for the fall, full schedule will be posted by Wednesday. This month I am featured as a designer for Fairfield World with a whimsical holiday stocking to make. The stocking is created from their so soft Bamboo Batting and a recycled sweater. The birds are needle felted with wool from National Nonwoven. 

So here is to a very crafty creative fall full of inspiration! What will you be crafting or sewing? Debra, CEO!

One of my favorite products to work with is Fairfield's Nature-Fil TM bamboo batt. It is so soft plus strong and a delicious creamy color. It is wonderful used as a batt but great as the main fabric. This month I am Fairfield's featured designer and have created a special project along with instructions available on their site.


The Feathery Friends Stocking combines Nature-Fil with a recycled wool sweater, reclaimed buttons and needle felted birds. I wanted to create a soft vintage feel with a touch of whimsy. I definitely have a thing about birds lately! For step by step photo instructions for needle felting check out my How To page. What you don't see is how I managed oh so very awkwardly to hold the tools and the camera at the same time! Another thing about now living alone is I do not have a model anymore for my wearables or someone to hold the camera.

This leads me to my next addition to the site, a second blog "the empty nest chronicles". The "ceo blog" will be for the creative, crafty happenings and "the empty nest" for a light hearted look at this new stage in my life. as always Follow the JOY! Debra, CEO!
