Etsy shop! 

I’ve decided to open an etsy shop, featuring some fun handmade items! I mostly crochet, but occasionally do other craft projects.

Minimalist Jacket

Something that has been missing in my wardrobe for a while is a light-ish weight casual jacket. Not a blazer (though I would like another one of those too), just a jacket that I can throw on to go out at the weekend during the weird, in between temperatures we get before Winter sets in properly. 690 more words


Sew Must Go On: Forgiving Floral Shirt

Soon after the birth of the munchkins I realised that I needed many more button down shirts for quick nursing access.  Also all those cute little nursing for discreet breastfeeding weren’t really going to work with the twin feeding that was taking up most of my time.   369 more words

Long Weekends, the Trail and Lateness

It’s too late for Finish-it-up-Friday over at CrazyMomQuilts, but even though it’s Saturday I thought I would still share this week’s finish.

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago there are 5 babies expected by coworkers this summer and this is the first of the 5 baby quilts for these little ones. 343 more words


Learning to Sew

My grandmother knitted and my mom needlepointed, I’ve picked up both crafts. Even though both of them did needle crafts, neither of them sewed except to mend clothes and occasionally hem things (because we are short so most things need hemming!) So for Mother’s Day, my mom and I decided that we needed to learn. 609 more words



Where does the time go?

It seems my weeks are beginning to run together and before I know it another new week is starting.  I look at my  organizer and realized I didn’t accomplish all the things I set out to do for the week. 398 more words


Me Made May Day 28

I mentioned a few days ago that I’m on a mission to create my first pair of really well fitting trousers. Alas, I have already hit a snag. 256 more words
