Maybe it's against "blog rules" to post about the same project back to back especially when things have been pretty quiet around here...but, eh I'm doing it anyway! This was such a big...

You guys, I know it's been quiet around here for the past couple of months...There are oh so many reasons for that, but one of them is because of this! I was working like a crazy lady making giant fruits for STYLO magazine! Several months ago the editors Celina and... Continue reading

It's one of those times where I've got loads of things I want to make and things that I have made, but haven't taken actual pictures of... There are ideas and thoughts swirling around in my head, but they haven't made it out yet...And then there's the fact that it's... Continue reading

Happy May Day! I was really hoping to do our little may pole celebration again this year, but I think we will have to postpone it...Next week we are acquiring a free two level playhouse/tree house sort of thing and the ribbons would only have to come down to make... Continue reading

A few weeks ago I was asked by a friend from Violet's school if I would make her a clutch like the ones that she had seen here and here and, while I was at it I thought I'd sew a few more, assembly line sewing is where it's at,... Continue reading

Way back in February, I bought the "Storybook Toys" book after seeing all of the amazing and fabulous pictures Tara posted of the doll she made. I fully intended on making one of my own for Violet for her birthday but then, sadly, I ran out of time. I'm not... Continue reading

It's the first day of Spring break. It's raining, but warm enough for me to wear my strawberry dress! The kids are still in their pajamas and I've got a thousand and one things that I've got to get done... But first, bunny balloons... Because, why not? Because balloons are... Continue reading

It's funny, in a not really funny at all sort of way, how holidays sneak up on you so quickly. Of course the decorations come out sooner and then I get carried away with this that and the other thing...and before I know it there's only one day where it's... Continue reading

While we have had a few warm days sprinkled here and there, it's still feeling rather chilly around here most days. Lucky for us though, the crocuses and daffodils don't seem to mind! And, thankfully the snow has all melted as well... Regardless of the temperatures we are full on... Continue reading

Happy First Day of Spring! Hooray for Spring, warm mosquitoless days filled with bright and cheerful bulbs and buzzing bees.

Oh how I love sewing and making little tiny baby things, and I know I'm not the only one! You might remember last year (almost exactly) when a group of bloggy friends gathered together to throw our friends Carla and Lacy a virtual baby shower. Well, as it turns out,... Continue reading

First, I have to say, I've totally been bitten! By the "selfish sewing bug" that is. I managed to sew five pieces of clothing (including today's outfit) for myself over the past week and I've still got plans (perhaps not time though) for more. I'm loving all of my new... Continue reading

The other week we purchased a few little tiny glass bottles and jars in the $1 section at Target. Once home, we began to brainstorm what we were going to do with them. And then, after hearing a Martin & Sylvia Sparkle Story about leprechauns, we all decided that we... Continue reading

I did not line it. I didn't want it to be fully lined to keep the "breezy" feel...also, if I'm being completely honest, I didn't want to deal with the extra fabric and effort of lining it... I, am wearing a full length slip underneath it though.

When Virginia Lindsay of Gingercake Patterns asked me if I would be interested in sewing up some birds from her new book, Pretty Birds, as part of the book tour, I didn't hesitate to say yes! I didn't hesitate for two reasons... First, I love Virginia's patterns and her aesthetic,... Continue reading

Today's Selfish Sewing Week project is a bit of a "cheater" project... For too long my Lady Skater dress has been sitting in a heap upon my dresser...too big to really look nice anymore and always slipping off my shoulders... One of the many handmades that don't quite fit me... Continue reading
