My Little Mermaid

Though I haven’t been able to make much time to sew lately, I was very motivated to make my two-year-old daughter a mermaid costume for Halloween this year.

After writing the first draft, I’d hoped to go back through my photos to see if I could trigger any other memories about work we did to the house during 2014 since I was sure I’d forgotten a thing or two. And, I… Continue reading The State of the Kitchen, through 2014 // Part 2
