With the return of Rhapsody of Reds and Symphony of Blues, so comes the return of my Cartouche embroidered pillow!

It is my great pleasure to present you with the re-print of Rhapsody of Reds AND Symphony of Blues!!! These two collections have been extremely popular. They exceeded our expectations during their debut and sold out very quickly. Due to the large number of requests to bring them back, we listened and did so!

finally arrives. I think my favorite part of the whole process has been
decorating the nursery. Though, I have to say, it is much harder than I

Depending on who you ask, it's really not as bad as it sounds, but it
definitely adds a whole new layer of complication into the process of
designing a room. Basically, what it breaks down to mean is that I get a
lot of anxiety from bright colors and a lot of contrast. When you
consider that babies love bright colors and lots of contrast, you can
see how this task might have been fairly daunting to me. When I first
started my planning, I thought I would go with a very neutral palette.
In my mind, my dream nursery would look something like this...

I had a lot of fun making the December Santa Pattern by The Wooden Bear Quilt Designs. My granddaughter is at the ‘learning what things are called’ stage and has been pointing and saying “Santa” for a while now so I think this will be going up on her bedroom wall.
