Last Sunday my family participated in the Wharf to Wharf 10k in Santa Cruz. The run takes you along the ocean from Santa Cruz to Capitola.

There are bands along the way which makes it a really fun run. My husband is a runner and has been his whole life so it was great to see he and my daughter run it together this year. I walked it with my sister in law and nephew and we had a blast too.


One of my favorite things to do after the race is to visit Hart’s Fabrics.

It is an independently owned fabric store and they carry a lot of the fabrics that I love. They have Amy Butler, Tula Pink, Heather Ross and a wall of cotton prints that will keep you busy for hours. There are great linens and trims that I haven’t seen anywhere else. A must for me is the remnant wall in the back. I find small pieces of laminated cotton and oilcloth for make up bag lining. It’s like a candy store to a sewer. They also have home decorator fabric too – that’s another whole visit. Fabric overload! Is there such a thing though?


I made this Kindle Cover today out of the Snow White fabric from the 

Far Far Away fabric collection by Heather Ross. I also made a coin purse out of the same fabric.


The yellow is cheerful and I love the birch trees as well as the dwarfs’ long underwear hanging on the line! The fox on top left of the coin purse ended up on the front of the Kindle Cover. The great thing about this fabric is that the pattern is large and there are a lot of trees. Snow White doesn’t show up on the Cover that I made because the pattern doesn’t repeat often. It’s like two different fabrics from one bolt.
