Mary and her Lamb and Chocolate Bunnies {new in the shop}

Visit the shop here, to see our latest TaDa! creations.




Bunnies will be placed in the lower corner for toddler sizes and the upper center for big girl sizes. Due to the size of the tees, these positions are most pleasing to the eye.


*Be sure to also become a fan over at our facebook page. Though we do send out newsletters with new listings in the shop, we update facebook first (it's so fast to do). And lately items have been selling out before I even have a chance to get a newsletter put together.

Darling Ducky {SOLD}

New in the shop today,

one last time.


With your choice of apron design,

cake or umbrella


Oh her aqua apron and cake plate are just killin' me. And don't get me started on the pink bow in her feathers. Eeek...I'm super excited to make this one again. But of course you could choose the April showers scene instead. Who doesn't need a polka dot umbrella?


And how about a custom TaDollie to match, for her Easter basket?


*skirt and tank are not available.

Looking through these photos made me really miss this collection. And especially my girls at this age. I think I'm going to have to stop selling our samples. Or get my hands on that shrink box that Kate is looking for.

Making the call

We are in the midst of another record breaking blizzard here. Just when it started to feel like spring was near, and snow was melting, we are now expecting 20"of snow.


So we made the difficult call to postpone the fashion show. And I'm glad we did. The snow came fast and the wind was whipping creating white-out conditions. We're so glad everyone could stay cozy at home and we look froward to seeing them in two weeks. We've rescheduled the show for Sunday March 6th, from 1-3pm. If you'd still like to come you can call and reserve your seat at 952.233.3774.

Since I don't have fun photos from today I'll share with you our Easter dress instead. We'll be adding it to the shop next week along with a casual tee and ruffle pants to coordinate. We love the idea of the decked out dress for church and dinner and a sweet outfit to change into for playing with the cousins after. Did you get to do that as a kid too?


These sweet Michael Miller prints are available at Eagle Creek and that's where our sample will stay on display. So fun!


Aren't the check and bow prints just too sweet?



And of course, there is Mary and her faithful Lamb.



Are you ready for spring too?

Eagle Creek Fashion Show and a Sneak Peek

Forgive me for being to quiet over here on the blog. We've been sewing and stitching our little fingers to the bone. And with just 6 more days until our fashion show at Eagle Creek Quilt Shop, we are excited and a wee bit nervous. Not the bad kind, just the butterflies in the stomach kind. I am by no means a public speaker, but I can sure talk about what I love to do, and I love to sew. I am thrilled to be able to share this event with my bff, our moms and daughters. Lots of planning has gone into this and if you are local we'd love to have you come and join us. Our girls are ready to strut their stuff! We'll even have a drawing for a little TaDa! door prize.

where: ECQS Shakopee, MN (the old train depot)
when: Sunday March 6th 1-3pm
cost: $15 per person
reservations required: 952.233.3774

And here is a peek at a sample dress we made to stay on display in their shop. This is our new Easter dress and she will be popping up in our Etsy store soon.
Be sure to sign up for the newsletter (over there --->) so you don't miss it.


Mary and her lamb make me so exited to see spring. We've finally got melting snow up here and I saw patches of grass around my house and herd some birdies chirping today. I couldn't help but breathe a deep sigh of relief. Oh how I love spring and the promise of something new.

Happy Valentine's Day y'all!

St. Patrick's Day Rainbow Tee

Here is our non-traditional take on a St. Patrick's day tee. We love clothes that can serve more than one purpose and this tee is no exception. Perfect to wear all spring and summer. Just remove the shamrock button after St. Pat's day and add another yellow one or a read heart.


A looser zig zag from our usual satin stitch gives a little touch of whimsy and still keeps the fabric edges from fraying. yo have any idea how hard it is to lay out buttons so they look perfectly random and still like them? The OCD part of my brain just wouldn't let me have peace about it, so yes they are symmetrical.

Here's to a TaDa! kind of
St. Patrick's day!
