The outdoors are always a great place to find inspiration. This week, get in touch with nature using this Water & Earth color scheme. Soft browns get a natural complement with saturated blue greens. Put it on an earthy toned fabric for a natural touch, and let those blue-greens really shine. See how it compares to the original.

Handmade Highlights – Foxy Mini Rug

Heidi hooked this mini 6″ x 6″ rug of adorableness. She used 1/4″ hand dyed wool strips, and completed the piece with a traditional quilter’s binding. I am seriously impressed at the skills Heidi used to create such an amazing mini masterpiece.

The Woodland Wonderland Fox is available and ready to be stitched onto your next project of cuteness!

The subtle roses from the Gothic Gala collection are stitched all over the dress in a deep, blood red, which her daughter models to lovely effect. Such a gorgeous image!

Quick Pic – Nerd Is So Passé

Inspiring ideas from customers!

The best and brightest chosen from images off facebook, flickr and instagram.

UT Stitcher Jessica makes awesome custom bags, and made this one for a customer looking for the perfect bag for one of her college daughters. After putting their brains together a bit, they came up with this brilliant creation.

The term nerd is so passé. We prefer Intellectual Badass these days. And it’s just the sort of thing for an Intellectual Badass roaming around campus.
