Hello again! It seems all I needed to do to get my little one to decide she was okay sleeping on her own – at least at the beginning of the night – was to tell the internet that she wouldn’t let me have any time to myself. Maybe she’s worried about what her future friends will think when… Continue reading A Hello and a Goodbye: Gray Chevron Elephant Baby Blanket
It’s been quite a month. I’ve had two family members in the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital for different issues and an incredibly stressful science paper deadline that was compounded by lots of drama from my co-authors. Couple that with an amazing baby girl who just found her legs, and my days have been more than… Continue reading Sew Expo Recap 2015
I’ll be honest with you – I started this skirt in August. That’s how little sewing I’ve been able to get done around here these past few months. The next project I have planned is a quick knit top though to hopefully keep the forward momentum going. “But, wait,” you say, “what about that wrap… Continue reading An Explosion of Inked Pink Flowers
Hi friends! It’s been busy around here to say the least. I carved out a bit of time this evening to dust the cobwebs off this blog, but then it’s back to the grindstone again tomorrow. The end of at least a large chunk of the crazy-busy is in sight though, and I can’t tell you… Continue reading Friday Finds for Sewing Well
What a lovely weekend we had here in Seattle! The sun was out, and I had the pleasure of hosting all of these lovely ladies in my house. I can tell you for a fact that our orbicularis oculi were getting a workout! I mean, look at those gorgeous smiles! Since many of them don’t have… Continue reading Seattle Sewing Saturday Success
I’ve been meaning to host a little sewing gathering in my house ever since I moved in this past May. Not that we have a kitchen yet since we tore out the last-remodeled-in-the-1930s-with-only-one-outlet-and-no-space-for-a-refrigerator kitchen before we moved in and have only now finalized the plans for updating the space. But, why should little details like… Continue reading Seattle Sewing Saturday
…and I don’t have the photo to prove it! Does a meet up really happen if there’s no photographic evidence? Last Thursday Cation Designs, Morgan of Crab & Bee, Meris of The Fabric Alchemist, and I met up for brunch at Lola in downtown Seattle. Cation Designs was in town for a few days, and her visit was the… Continue reading A Cation, a Crab, and an Alchemist walk into a… Well?
Photo of Helena of Gray All Day, Leah of Away I Sew!, and me at the Sew Expo Sunday, March 2nd It’s 5:45 am, and I am up, which is unsurprising these days thanks to our precious baby girl. But, this morning I’m actually excited to get out of bed while it’s still dark. Today I finally get… Continue reading Sew Expo Recap: Classes and Fabric and People, Oh My!
I mentioned a little over a month ago that I was going to the Sewing and Stitchery Expo in Puyallup, Washington. Back then the Sew Expo felt so far away. It’s hard for me to believe the Expo week is already here and that March is already here, but it’s true! (A friend once told me that when… Continue reading Sew Expo Sunday
Last week I introduced my desire to get started on my new year’s sewing resolutions, or “resewlutions” if you will, right away before I’d lost that new year, clean slate feeling (and before the impending arrival of the little one, which I’m sure is going to slow things down around here!). I was so impressed… Continue reading Resewlution: Connect with the Seattle Sewing Community
