Pinwheel Hummingbird Fabric

Introducing my Pinwheel Hummingbird print!

I only had an 8" x 8" test swatch printed on cotton twill but I really need to get a yard or two printed on cotton sateen and get to make some baby blankets for gifts.

I seem to have a lot of friends who are awaiting the actual delivery day to find out gender, luckily the pinwheel hummingbirds have a color-way that works for everyone ;)

Exclusively available over at my Spoonflower shop here:

Heather Ross

I don't remember how I found out about Heather Ross but I've been following her blog for a long time.

Heather is an illustrator with a long history in the world of fabric design, she is the author of Weekend Sewing, the founder of Munki Munki (although she sold it in 2004), and so many other things all of which you can read more about on her website here.

My personal favorite thing about Heather is her fabulous stories from her childhood. She used to often share them on her blog but then they sort of tailed off. Of course Heather is very busy as you can see on her blog and I kind of figured that with motherhood and her work she didn't have the time it took to craft such perfect memories weekly for freeloaders such as myself anymore.

I also thought perhaps someone told her to put it in a book instead... which is why I was SO excited to not only learn about her new book, How to Catch a Frog: And Other Stories of Family, Love, Dysfunction, Survival, and DIY, but also that she was coming to Minneapolis for a book signing!

This is my covert shot of Heather from the audience.

It was lovely to meet this crafty lady. She is funny, friendly and humble which is exactly how her blog sounds. How to Catch a Frog is a really wonderful book, I'm not going to go all book review here but I did get one for my mother-in-law too and she also loves it.
