Here's what I had fun working on over the weekend - Did I mention that fall is nearly over here in the mountains?  The trees are looking bear, and there is a definite chill in the air; as in I have already scraped my windshield a few times! The fabrics include a wide variety of [...]

Owen was treated to a pile of Pirate fabrics, which clearly he loved, just not enough to smile for a stranger for - haha!  He spotted the pirate ships, and skulls in the bolts at Riley Blake, and claimed the floor space just in front of them while I chatted about Sewing Summit with Jina [...]

I had treated myself to a new die for my Go! cutter about a month ago, but didn't pull it out until this last weekend finally.  In the midst of making jam, and keeping the laundry moving (mostly) I was inspired to make this little clutch!  I decided I needed a clutch to go along [...]
