Let them eat cake...

Because it’s their birthday. The Monthly Stitch is one year old. Birthdays for me are an opportunity for a bit of madness and silly. Soo to celebrate, not only did I make cupcakes, not only did I sew some, but I managed  to sort of dress myself into one too, well sort of. 265 more words

The move-in is moving along. And I’ve finally reached the state of settled-in-ness I need to actually start sewing again! How weird that I need an orderly work area in which to make a terrific mess, but there’s no time for self analysis. 579 more words


Goldstream Peacoat

If you are interested, head over to The Monthly Stitch to see my latest project, the Goldstream Peacoat by Thread Theory…I think I can make almost anything after this !!!


I said I'd do it and I did!! Tank top version of the Burda Horse Dress. (Plus some Questions for Y'all!)

Well, since barely anybody else has sewn this pattern (Burda Style 7221), I thought it only appropriate that I sew it twice (first time sewing a pattern more than once!)  I made version B, the tank top.  465 more words


Black & White and spotted all over!

More sewing for me, and more spots!  The Monthly Stitch contributors had chosen Monosewn, black & white only as their theme for July.  I thought this was going to be a cake walk to be honest, I had so many fabrics to chose from I was quite literally swimming in the stuff!  586 more words
