I’m Assuaging My Guilt…

I’m just popping in today to assuage my guilt over not posting recently. I have no really good reason to be over here beyond that to be honest 🙂 I have been making a bunch of stuff, but because of my usual poor planning, I have no good pictures to share (my instagram is usually…

Breeze Top Pattern Tour

I’m excited to be on the Breeze Top pattern tour; I first “met” Shannon of Little Kids Grow through Project Run and Play’s sew-a-longs and have always been impressed by her style, and love of her family – so I was really excited when she contacted me about participating in introducing her new pattern for Peaches…

A Shibori Table Runner

I have been MIA over here (shocking I know) but that never means I haven’t been making stuff, just that I have been a bad blogger. I have been doing some sewing for a guest post, some sewing for Emmie’s fall back to school wardrobe, and even some for myself. I have several patterns and…

Guest Post {Project Run And Play}

I’m over at Project Run and Play today sharing a dress I made, and a shoe knock off tutorial, for liZ and Elizabeth’s Flashback May series. I am going to be uploading the bodice pattern for the dress here, as soon as I can get Paul to digitize it for me (it will only be…

Roman Costume Flashback

I’ve been working on several different projects (a maxi skirt, a purse, some beading, etc.)…

A Tale of Two Quilts {pinspired}

  I have been a little quiet around here, because I have been trying to get some stuff done, before I go out of town for a couple of weeks (I’m leaving for the USA to go see my nephew tomorrow!) so real world issues have taken over my blogging time 🙂 I have Korean…

Knockoff Anthropologie Firenze Velvet Tassel Pillow

    I shared the 5 new pillows I recently made for the family room yesterday, with the promise that today I would get around to posting the tutorial for the Anthropologie inspired velvet tassel pillow,   My pillow is a knockoff of Anthropologie’s Firenze Velvet Tassel Pillow,   My teal velvet fabric color was…

Family Room Pillows

    I’ve been on a pillow making kick in the family room for the last couple of weeks; after the open house this Christmas, I decided that the couch was a little too bare. I have added 5 new pillows since then, and I really like the way that they tie the colors of…
