she's back...

By popular demand. What is it about Little Red Riding Hood? I like making her and apparently several of you, that have asked about her, do to. I just added two new versions to my site (here and here). I wish my photos made these pieces justice. The gray day that we started out here today didn't help one bit.

Into the Woods II

Hiding - I've been wanting to add the wolf for a while but never got around to doing it.

Speaking of Little Red Riding Hood these are a couple of the fabrics that I got from Sonatine that I found out about through Hillary. I don't typically buy cute looking fabrics but I just fell for these and thought I'd include them in a couple of Christmas presents I have in mind for little C. Yes, I'm going to tackle a sewing project. I don't really know if it's realistic of me to work on something like this right now (lack of time - what else is new?) but I'm going to give it a shot.

You're probably tired of me giving thank yous in my posts but I just feel I must. Lisa Solomon, who needs no introduction, for example, said the nicest things about my work at Sew Green. Thank you Lisa. I think I was blushing when I read all that.

More thank yous to Amy and Ready-Made for posting about my popsicle sticks tags. They sure have been getting around! I didn't post a gift tag idea this week because I just couldn't come up with something that was worth posting. It gets frustrating when I can't come up with an idea, but I can't force it. I think what makes these little projects interesting for me though, is the fact that when I'm not too busy I have a little something to mull over.

Saving the best for last - I owe a HUGE thank you to those of you that have ordered my calendar template and have sent me such lovely emails. All your kind words are very encouraging and I just love that this project has been so well received. I had no clue that it would go like this but it has been a great, great week. Thank you. Thank you. :)

Have a great weekend and see you in December!


  1. your work is very inspiring :) don't get too frustrated for not being to come up with anything... i'm very happy that you are even willing share your ideas with us. hugs!

  2. Eeeeeeee! That wolf! Oh, how I wish I could justify another for myself this close to Christmas... a series...

    Sigh :) Love seeing here just the same.

  3. love these pieces you have created..i am new to your blog but i have to say i LOVE it....

    that cute fabric sure looks like the Mellow papers from Basic Grey.
    that must have ben their inspiration!!

  4. That card is delightful! I love the contrast of her cape, and the wolf! Adorable!

  5. I love your blog -- your designs are cute and fanciful!

    I really like the red riding hood fabric you found.

    Looking forward to seeing what you do...


  6. Whoa! I love little red riding hood with the wolf, that is really amazing!

    I stumbled upon your blog last week, WOW! Thank you for sharing your amazing skill. I have done a little in this way, but nothing near as beautiful as what you have shared.

  7. Little Red is absolutely adorable! I love how she just pops right out with her bold color. :D

  8. Thought you might like the idea that when I worked at Defenders of Wildlife they had a "Little Red Riding Hood Lied," campaign. It was a very clever way to convince the U.S. public that wolves are a good thing in our forests. I wish I could say I had something to do with that campaign, but alas, it was not my idea.

  9. little red riding hood is adorable! love the one with the wolf, too.

  10. i love your work! It's truely one of a kind. the clever use of light and shadow in your work is amazing!

    Keep it up. Can't wait to see more :)

    I can't STAND how adorable these are. I love the wolf too. He lends just the right amount of darkness and threat, which all the best fairy tales have.

  12. Little Red Riding Hood is just divine!!!! The woof looks perfect in the second picture. I also love the fabric and checked out the link you gave to Sonatine's shop, she has some fantastic fabrics there for sale I can't wait to go back and buy myself some.
    Well done on all of the success with the calander, it really is a great idea.
