I am a mother of two who grew up on the North Shore of Lake Superior. The rocky shores and diverse seasons inspire and inform the the things that I make. Hand-making is a tradition that has been in my family for generations. It thrills me to see its presence in my kids.

Hey, hi! Wanna talk sweaters? I've been knitting a bunch this year. Some for me, some for others. And I just finished this sweater from a kit that I got from We Are Knitters. I'm feeling all gushy and electric about it. I frequently knit up things that I feel... Continue reading

This November I was a guest panelist over at the Oliver and S blog during their Swingset Skirt Sewalong. I'm smitten with the swingy nature of this skirt. It's easy, lined and comes in a big old range of sizes. Mine is made from a dress that I nabbed off... Continue reading

Phew! So far so good. Ok, so the theme for this week's Kids Clothes Week is "Disguise." And what I'm up to is this: why not "disguise" some of our old favorites as new? This dress is from several kids clothes weeks ago. I think it's two years old, probably... Continue reading

It's happening! Kids Clothes Week kicks off tomorrow. Will you be playing along? I have printed out patterns in fresh sizes, made a couple of muslins and hauled home a bunch of fresh fiber from the thrift shop. I have to admit, I'm very rusty. I had to toss a... Continue reading

Hello, dear friends! Please do excuse my absence. It was completely unintentional and I am completely without an excuse. All I can say is that I have been unable to pull myself away from this lush, sunny summer and from the days that have positively brimmed with everything. The air... Continue reading

That fabric is so soft! My daughter asked me to please rip the seams and make this into a dress:)

Hi Erin, thanks! It is a fabulous-looking pattern. I love this style!

Hi Mary! It was pretty easy to put together. I think that I bought 2 yards of fabric. Next time I'd go for 2.5 just to make sure that I had enough room to lay out the legs correctly. It's four pieces to cut excluding the straps (which are another 4 pieces). I found it to be quite quick to sew.

Hi Nat! Yes, comfy! She doesn't approve but I'm hoping she'll come around:)

Hi there, thanks for being here! I'm joining the Vintage May tour today alongside A Jennuine Life . My early kids clothes were all made from recycled fabrics from the thrift shop. For awhile, I was making some cool stuff out of the gift bags that Patagonia makes from their... Continue reading

Salutations! Thanks for finding me here. Today I'm joining the Twisted Trousers tour being hosted by Laura of Titchy Threads. The Twisted Trousers feature a clever, curved shape that has the appearance of a slim fitting pant but are actually relaxed enough to accommodate the big movements of little folks... Continue reading

For most of January, I worked on this Bellows Sweater by Michele Wang of Brooklyn Tweed. It hasn't turned out to be something that I reach for every day, mostly because I sort of went at the sizing blindly. I knew that I wanted something cozy and oversized but I... Continue reading

I have only had eyes for knitting the past eight weeks or so. Maybe it's been the wind whipping around outside or my fluid-filled lungs or the coziness of my first, finished patchwork quilt. But in my free time, I've wanted only to plant myself, firmly and for as long... Continue reading

Hi Marcy! I'd love to make sweaters for sale someday… Haven't quite figured out how to do that yet, though. One of the reasons that I like to make mine is that they're better than the ones you get in the store:) You'll be the first to know if I start making sweaters for sale:) Wanna learn to knit?
