Ladies and Gentlemen, I'm once again pleased to announce that my husband and I welcomed a darling daughter into the world last week. (Please ignore the blue sleeve cuffs. All of our tiny newborn clothes are hand-me-downs from a family that had two boys!) And, just as before, our little family is doing well. Labor was… Continue reading It’s a Girl! Again!
Happy New Year everyone! We celebrated by visiting Chihuly Garden and Glass in Seattle on New Year's Eve, and I thought this photo I took of their glass flowers was a perfect fireworks display to usher in the new year here on the blog.

Getting a good first tackle on those resewlutions is something I want to focus on this month. I'm throwing it into the Science of Sewing thing I started last year since… Continue reading Resewlutions
As 2013 comes to a close, I can't help but jump on Gillian of Crafting a Rainbow's "Top 5" craze that's going around the sewing internets. Unfortunately, one of the things that has been impacted the most by this pregnancy in the last two months is my grasp on creative writing. Seriously, these days when… Continue reading Reflecting on 2013
My husband and I recently went on a short trip - a babymoon, if you will - to Alaska. We were on the hunt for aurora. We chose a long weekend as close to a new moon and the equinox as our schedules would allow, two criteria we'd heard improve one's chances of seeing the… Continue reading An Aurora in Voile
