Is this fabulous or what!? . . . This is Lizzy House‘s newly launched 1001 Peeps–and wait till you see the amazing quilt pattern book that goes with it!  I am just blown away by Lizzy’s talent–the colors, the pattern, the design and the story.  The story. . . .seriously, the fabric takes you on a fantastic voyage, sparking the imagination, stoking a love of adventure and plunging you deep into an Arabian night. Cohesive and thorough, Lizzy provides the full package–a true artist.  On top of it, she is as warm and supportive as she is talented.  
AND, I am thrilled to tell you that I am officially a  . . .

If you want to be a camper, I think I speak for all the counselors in saying that we’d love it if you came along for the ride!  You won’t be sorry.  Look at this awesome camper badge–post it on your site and start sewing and grooving with 1001 peeps at Sew, Mamma, Sew today.
  
NOTE, my week is July 29th – so don’t forget to check back for my week’s project – ooooh its gonna be a good one.  I had a lightning strike this morning (think a loud bing accompanying that yellow star, suddenly appearing behind the counselor pic)–such a fun idea and perfect for the fabric.  Seriously, you won’t want to miss it.  
I am happy to say, too, that the big deadline I’ve been working on is behind me now.  I am thrilled to dive into the summer with more time to create, design, hang with the kids and post more often than once a week!  My brain is exploding with things to do . . . so keep your eyes here to see the adventures. Hope everyone’s summer is taking off!

    The summer camp is a great idea! I’m sure it will be fun. I’ll pass it along to my sewing friends. Enjoy it!

  2. Monica

    This is a great idea! If I knew how to sew, and I did not already sign up for a summer project…I would be in!

  3. The minty green with the white/pearl necklace circles is blowing my mind.
