Ho Ho Holidays! Lots of merry fabrics

I've just spent eons (ok, 2 days) photographing fabrics and listing them in my Etsy shop.  They're not just for the holidays, but I admit many of them have red in them :).  Here's a sampling:
These are just some of the new fabrics. And there are also upholstery, or Home Dec, weight fabrics like the one below...
 I think I've listed about 15 new fabrics including a heavy weight iron-on interfacing.  And there are more to come!

More Purse Organizer Smiles, this time from Lindsay ...

Not to gloat, but I love getting photos and notes from those who have ventured to try one of my patterns.  This is also a DIY Kit (the other here) for a purse organizer.  Lindsay sent these photos - check this out:
 She even made her own "signature square" for it!
And just as an encouragement to all you new sewers, here is what Lindsay said:
"I just wanted to let you know that the purse organizer turned out wonderfully! I think this is the third thing I've sewn...ever, so it probably took me a bit longer than it would someone with a bit more experience, but even with running out of bobbin thread and getting my thread all caught up in the machine (only once though, I'm getting better), the total time was less than 4 hours. I cut out patterns from extra pieces of fabric and can't wait to make more of these! I think every female in my family will be getting one for Christmas. The only change I made was that once I was all finished, I ended up pulling out the stitching from one of the pockets to create one bigger and one regular size pocket on that side, purely personal preference (my cell phone cover makes it too big to fit in one of the regular size ones, without the cover it's fine). Thanks again for a great product!"
I'm beaming :).  And Lindsay, you should, too. You did a fantastic job!

Customer Smiles - they're the best!

I got a great note from Carol who bought a purse organizer DIY Kit.  She wasted no time sewing up a storm...I mean a purse organizer :).  Here is a photo she sent:
and here's what she had to say in her note: "Just thought I would share a few photos of the finished organizer ...

and the purse I made for it. I love the organizer! Thanks again!!"
Way to go Carol!
