Top 5 Hits + Misses and Reflections 2020

It’s been a strange year and while I’ve sewn quite a bit, my makes felt a bit disjointed this year. I started out strong with some lovely makes in the winter but focused more on pattern drafting and muslins (many wearable) for the remainder of the year. The last few months I’ve had a really full work schedule so I’m really looking forward to some time in my …

2018, Year in Review

Top 5: Hits + Misses 2016

It’s that time of year again…time for a Top 5 post!  This is my third year participating in Gillian at Crafting a Rainbow’s Top 5 roundups. I tend to get tunnel vision when I’m sewing and totally forget what I’ve made over the last few months.

Top 5- Goals for 2016

Happy, Happy New Year everyone!  This year has gone by in a blink.  Or maybe a blur.  I tend to over plan and over think just about everything so my goal for 2016 is “SLOW”.  I’m going to slow down the pace, slow down my (self-inflicted) schedule and just enjoy my family and my sewing.  I want each piece I make this year to be thoughtful and unique.  I …
