Upcoming Projects and The Year of No New Clothes

I have had this blog for close to a year now, and I am so thankful to everyone for supporting me and showing me the love, ya know?
 Especially my husband for all the constant "Can you take a picture of me?" requests!!!
 Thank you thank you! I appreciate every comment and click!

It all started with hand sewing a winter scarf for my daughter, and I thought it was really fun! The hand sewing was taking FOREVER though.

A few months later, I bit the bullet and bought a cheap-o machine to get myself started. 
I'm still using the same machine!
 I had never sewn a day in my life, but I was up for the challenge.
 I took it a step further and challenged my husband Kenny, myself and our kid to a YEAR of no new off-the-rack clothing. It has been hard at times, because I do love a new dress or new jacket...or...really anything...
Whatever we needed, we had to find at a resale store, or make ourselves. (In the process I made Kenny some P.J. pants that were atrocious, I still have to make up for those.)

Thank you so much for coming with me on my creative journey!

Here's a sneak peak at some projects that are in progress...


These two fabrics are awesome! Plus, I teach calligraphy so,
 I have to make something to go along with that lesson.

This amazing textured jacket from Bonnie...


"Starry Night" fabric. A wonderful gift from the hubs!
If you've never checked out spoonflower.com you should!


A skirt from Grams....


Annndddd....a VERY messy basement studio....


I'm so glad spring break is coming up! Hopefully I can get a few ideas accomplished.

Stay Tuned!!!
