Argh. Favorite designer?? Too. Many. To. Pick...

The one whose fabrics I've been using a lot lately is Sandi Henderson. It's quality, and it's pretty. :)

courtney*adele said...

i love anything moda, and free spirit is amazing!

courtney*adele said...

worst birthday gift ever was from an aunt i won't name... she gave me a necklace that she had been wearing (it had her hair stuck in it) and mismatched used earrings. needless to say that's the point i wrote her off as a decent gift giver!

courtney*adele said...

and i'm following melanie now!

Tanya said...

It's hard to decide I have favorites from each designer, so I'll say Heather Bailey.

Tanya said...

Worst birthday gift...school supplies, my bday is Aug 19 close to the start of school so for many years people always bought me binders and pencils, useful but not fun for a kid!

Ashley said...

My fav is Heather Bailey.

Ashley said...

The worst present ever was a glass boot soap dispenser with fake flowers inside. The look of shock was priceless, I'm sure. What do you say to a present like that??

My worst b-day present was the year I didn't get one. Not even a card. And I was pregnant and hormonal. Seems like hubby did have something planned, but neglected to clue me in that we'd be celebrating a few days later. But, gee, even a card or a "happy birthday" would have been nice on the actual day! :(

Charlene said...

And, hey, I'm loving the material patterns Moda has been putting out lately. So pretty!

Becca said...

I love them all - especially Heather Bailey! :-)

Katie said...

Favorite designer is so hard to pick... I think Heather Bailey. :) katievarela@att.net

SO hard to choose, I just got a sewing machine from my great aunt, a 1978 singer fashion mate, so I am a little fabric crazy right now....anywho, I love Paricia Bravo and Heather Bailey!

Rebecca said...

My worst gift? Probably the knitting needle set I got ten years ago, it seemed like a terrible gift because I don't knit. But I held onto them and just recently started my first knitting project - who knew?!

SewLindAnn said...

There were several of my favorite designers, Laura Gunn is the one I'd pick for this moment in time.

SewLindAnn said...

I left a comment on her blog, and signed up to get the feed and newsletter. Her shop is set up really nice. I plan on checking it out further.

SewLindAnn said...

Hmmm, worst gift. I can't remember not liking anything. I'm really pretty easy to please, and as long as someone brings me coffee in the morning and lets me do whatever I want all day (sewing/gardening) without taking care of anyone else, I'm good.

k. davis said...

favorite designer will always be Amy Butler, and I'm happy to see that she has some in her store!

k. davis said...

I don't think I ever had a "worst" birthday gift... but an unusual one, was for those "MC HAMMER" style of pants! hahah now that I look back on it, I shake my head and wonder, "Why?"

k. davis said...

left some love on Melanie's blog!

Ann On and On... said...

Ann On and On... said...

Worst gift, I would have to say the one that I never received.... The "oh I left it at home" knowing they never really got anything. It's better to not say anything at all vs. to lie. :S

Worst birthday gift ever = fishing pole and tackle box...so I could go fishing with the EX...notice, I say EX. There is a reason for that. Nothing against fishing, just not my cup of tea (city mouse I am, not a country mouse)....

emtdlb said...

Can't say I ever met a fabic I didn't like. But the Bloom & Grow by My Minds Eye was nice and old school traditional for me today. Will definately be going back to check out more fabric-which is my addiction as well. Thanks for the chance!

emtdlb said...

I can't say I have ever had a bad present-I never got that many. We mostly got to pick out the cake we wanted and that was it. Although maybe the vacuum cleaner my husband got me one year might qualify.

emtdlb said...

Left Melanie a message-I will definately be checking back to see what she is up to. Thanks for the chance!!!!

Erin @ BringingUpBurns said...

Megan said...

I don't remember a specific birthday present I didn't like. But there was a time when I hoped to get something (anything) from my husband and didn't get a thing.

Jessica said...

So hard to pick, but I am going to go with Joel Dewberry! Thanks for the opportunity!

Jessica said...

I follow Melanie on Twitter. Thanks!

My Mother in law once gave me a pink sweater, it was a nice enough sweater, but a 2x when I was a size 10. I tried not to be hurt ;)

Dawn said...

Heather Bailey is my favorite, by far!

Dawn said...

I had a boyfriend in high school who always purchased an item for himself as a "gift" for me on special occasions. Glad I found a sweet husband who always goes above and beyond on special days. =D

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

My favorite fabric designer whose fabric is carried at Above All Fabric is Amy Butler.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

The worst birthday gift I received was a "gift set" that was received free with purchase at a cosmetic counter!!!

The Chubby Dove said...

So many cute fabrics, but I'd have to say the pirate monkeys b/c I live with two them.

The Chubby Dove said...

This wasn't really a gift, but my favorite aunt passed away from cancer on my birthday 3 years ago. Yeah, real bummer.

Kristi said...

I love Amy Butler!!

Kristi said...

I gottten a few awful presents from my sweet grandma but its the thought that counts and i know that now and just reallly appreciate anything I can get from her now!!

Sarah Bock said...

I love the Heather Bailey Fabric!

Sarah Bock said...

Sent her a comment!

Sarah Bock said...

I've gotten some really bizarre Christmas presents that I remember but not birthday. Usually they involve some odd odd clothing that older relatives think is stylish.

Caci said...

I really love Amy Butler fabric! But like most I have yet to meet a fabric I don't like.

Caci said...

The worst birthday gift I ever received was bird feeder from my in-laws (who by the way know that I am deathly afraid of birds)!

Nicole said...

Wowza!!! Thank you for introducing me to her store. I love the Kyoto and Nina kits, the patterns are just too adorable!!

Ry and Ally said...

I love the tangarine full moon polka dot fabric! Cuuute!
