    Tweens Love Comfort – Pattern Parcel

    Wow, today is the final day to get this Pattern Parcel! I hope you grabbed it! So many great patterns for all ages of girls! And stylish without being overly fluffy and ruffly! I sewed up two pieces that were almost made to go together – the EYMM Drape Top and the Greenstyle Yoga Pant – […]

  • Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Recipe

    Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Recipe

    So mostly I put sewing projects up on my blog, but I’ll throw a recipe here once in awhile. Like if it’s something I think people may like, or I don’t want to lose the recipe. This slow cooker pulled pork recipe fits both those qualifications. I’ve been working on this for what feels like […]

  • Crêpe Myrtle Dress

    Crêpe Myrtle Dress

    Somewhat a delayed blog post on this dress, but that’s just how my summer has gone! So much happening day to day that I keep forgetting to blog it all. But I couldn’t go too much longer without posting about this. I’m calling it my “Crêpe Myrtle Dress” because Myrtle is the pattern and the […]

    I was super excited to be invited to join the Delilah Pattern Tour today! Mostly because I totally need new shirts. Selfish? Um… yes. But darn it, this is a cute shirt!

  • Blog Hosting for Creators

    Blog Hosting for Creators

    In so many of the sewing circles I’m a part of, people ask over and over about how to start a blog. Where should they host? Should they use a blog service, or should they do it themselves? And how? As creatives, we want to be able to share our talents with the community, but […]
