It's been a lovely year of sewing. Over the past twelve months I've written about the sewing projects that I've completed this year, and I also threw in the projects that I'd made the year before. Here they all are. 2010 was mostly a year of crafts... ...with a few garments thrown in, only two… Continue reading Welcoming the New Year
Thank you, thank you for your kind words and thoughts. My relative's surgery went better than expected, and they're now on the road to recovery. Now back to your regular programming (well, not tonight, but soon).

We were spoiled rotten; we had warm showers every day, multi-course meals every night, and more spectacular views than we could count. I'm now doing my… Continue reading Catching Up
In between sewing projects in 2011, I'm going to recount the sewing projects that I completed in 2010. This post is one of those projects. When I moved out to California for graduate school, I took with me my Grandmother's old sewing machine. It was one of those Singer machines built into a small wooden table.… Continue reading From History to Hobby (and Curtains)
