Tilda Winter Memories

You know when something you see resonates with you so strongly it doesn't just 'speak' to you - it shouts!  Whether it be a color, fabric, vintage treasure or a new product line...that special something draws you in.
Well, the latest Tilda's World line has done just that to me.  It is called 'Winter Memories' and it is remarkable.
I discovered Tilda's World last year (see this post) and have been hooked ever since.  Tone Finnanger creates the most adorable fabric designs and writes beautiful books with a host of delightful patterns.  Her fabric colors tend to be on the bright and bold side, which I admire but find difficult to blend in with our home's light palette.  That is until now...her Winter Memories line is designed in soft, muted winter warm colors.
Here is the cover of her latest book due out soon in English (see Amazon):

I've got this pre-ordered and am counting the days...

Unfortunately we Americans have to wait a bit longer for Tilda's World books and products.  This line came out last fall in Norway, along with the same book in Norwegian titled "Tilda's Vintereventyr" with this enticing cover:

It is filled with Christmas and winter projects with fairytale themes.  The first thing I'm making when I get the book is the 'Princess and the Pea' project in the doll bed.  Look how sweet it looks in this room:

And can you believe this adorable Christmas stocking designed as a ballet slipper???

I just received these fabrics recently ordered...


and adore their colors.

Couldn't resist ordering this paper pad, too:

Look at this elegant stage curtain:


These will make lovely tags:







I definitely plan to make some 'winter memories' with all of these projects in mind.
How are you spending your winter?

Tilda is so sweet! I am in love with the fabrics you chose, especially the blue background with the pink roses. ***sigh*** And the paper is wonderful, too! My nephew and his wife live in Norway, maybe we should start an importing business:)

Oh I can't believe it! I have to get more with it with Tilda. I just discovered Sew Sunny Homestyle this week when I was looking for yarn. I never sew any more but I couldn't resist picking it up either! I didn't realize there were more products. LOVE your fabrics. The books are just so beautiful and inspiring. They have wonderful designs.

It's been the same for me too Susan. I found Tilda last year and have been collecting fabrics for some pillows and a quilt. I love the new line too.

Hi Susan. I am so excited to discover another American that is a Tilda fan. Most Tilda fans are not American as I have discovered on my pinterst. I am a fan just recently and have two book and one on the way also. I am bloging about what I am making also.
Love your blog.

Everything is SO beautiful here! I am so glad that I found your blog...you are so talented!

Jacqueline Cooper said...

Your blog is lovely ... very appealing to a fellow Tilda fan! I had only ever made a couple if simple rag dolls many years ago but couldn't resist Tilda. The patterns are all put together very simply and make up quickly don't they? I like the Tlda fabrics so much that I now stock them in my etsy shop too.
I will now follow your blog!
