Kim at True Up put up a posting about my Mendocino fat quarter contest. I wanted to say hello! to everyone who is visiting for the first time, I’m overwhelmed by all your amazing comments.

If you don’t already read True Up and you love fabric, then you’ll want to head over there and check it out. It’s a daily read for me, as it is full of great fabric eye candy, information and news.

As for mythical creatures, I spotted a frog yesterday in the pond in our backyard. This might not seem like such a big deal, but our pond is TEENY TINY. I’m not sure where he came from or how he found our pond, there are no bodies of water anywhere near us. Of course, the battery in my camera was completely dead and when I went out this morning to try to take a photo, the froggie was no where to be found. I swear he exists! I’ll keep trying to take his photo.

One last thing, I can’t help but tell you that Rachel McAdams came into the shop this morning. She looked incredible and was super nice. I’m a huge fan, eagerly awaiting her upcoming movie, “The Time Traveler’s Wife”. I L-O-V-E-D the book.


Just in case you’re didn’t believe me when I said I’d be catching some mermaids, a huge fun box of sea creatures arrived at the workroom yesterday. There are seven prints showing fish, sea horses, octopi and pretty mermaids swimming around and lots of fun colourways to choose from.

The contest to win a stack of eight fat quarters from the Mendocino mermaid collection by Heather Ross is still on until Friday September 19th midnight. Just go to the original contest posting and leave a comment, telling me your favourite mythical creature and why. There have been so many awesome creatures mentioned already, but I’d love to hear yours!


Mermaid in the Brock Underpassthe workroom. Heather Ross’ new fabric line, ‘Mendocino’, features mermaids, octopi, sea horses and fish swimming across colourful oceans of fabric. Twenty eight bolts of this line will be arriving in the shop next week. Perhaps I went a little overboard, but these prints are too cute!

In order to lure the mythical readers of this blog to reveal themselves, I’m having my first contest! Up for grabs is a sweet stack of eight fat quarters of the Mendocino line. Eight fat quarters equals lots of mermaid fun for the winner.

Here are the details – leave a comment on this post between now and September 19th midnight with your name and tell me what your favourite mythical creature is and why. Don’t forget to include your email address (it doesn’t get published) so that I can contact you if you win. I’ll draw a name and announce the winner on September 22.

Good Luck!
