Smell of Summer-Postcard

Skirt & Dress Apron at the Quilt Market Show (Spring-Salt Lake City)

These fabrics are from The Daisy Vibe Group (Michael Miller Fabrics) which are designed by me.
The orange combination is so cute on spring day!
Oops, today is like a summer day already here in New York.
Well, why don't you use the blue combination for summer. It is behind the "Skirt Apron" in the picture. It is my "Dress Apron".
Below that picture is my place mat, dish mats (you can see the layers) and coaster.

Salt and pepper shakes--they are hugging each other.
Aren't they cute?
Wear the Apron and serve a nice meal for your special! Bon appetit!

Kris, Thank you for posting my pictures!
Stacy, Thank you for your posting about my blogland!--- I'm the beginner!

Good Luck Karma!

I drew this cat for our house warming party's invitation card 14 years ago.
I had just moved to the USA.
I'm wondering what is "Good Luck Karma"?
These cats are called Maneki-neko in Japanese.
"Maneki" means "Inviting". "Neko" means "Cat"
Translated into English, "Lucky cat"
I saw them at many restaurant entrances when I was a little.
"The cat is inviting people to come in", my mother said.
Whenever I'm looking for a good restaurant in an unfamiliar area,
I check to see how many customers are in there.
When I see it is busy, it is good sign! I want to try this place.
I know you do the same way to find your new favorite places.

Sewing Patterns - invitation card!

When I wake up in the morning,
I start to think, “What shall I wear?”
I grab the pair of jeans that I wore yesterday.
“I don’t have plans to go out anyway.”
Oh, please! Look at yourself,
you can be cuter than that!
Start with a little thing day by day
and you will enjoy yourself more and more.
Let the window open!

These are my girls who wear or carry my designs.
These bags and aprons are really practical and stylish. I've been using all of them on suitable occasions.

The names of my patterns, read from left to right.

They say, "We need more friends!' So, I'm working on new girls with aprons and bags.
Accessories increase your charm!
