After much thought and consideration, I have decided to end this blog here.

I hope you enjoyed my adventures in learning to sew, entertaining my toddler and my cooking. 

As it is with many families, my life is a busy one.  I am wanting to put more focus on my family, my business and my health.  

Thank you to those who have stopped by.  I have truly enjoyed having you all here to join me along the way.

Baby Toes…

Baby toes – both adorable and functional!

(In case you are wondering, those are guitar picks.  They fit perfectly between her toes and she thought it was the funniest thing ever! )

I’m In Love!

Ever since I laid eyes on Michael Miller’s Gypsy Bandana line, I have been obsessed.  I am so in love with this fabric line!

I saw it at a local fabric store and drooled over it a few times.  I left it on the shelf though.  I finally decided that I would buy some because I simply could not live without it.

I have great plans for this fabric!  I can’t wait to work with it!

Have you ever loved a fabric line this much?  I would love to hear about it!

Well, I tried again.

I picked out all the stitching.  I ironed the pant leg out flat again.  Ironed down a 1/4 inch all the way around.  Then I did something a bit different from last time.  I made the hem not as deep and I used my measuring tape and my marker to mark where I was going to fold the fabric to.  I marked it all the way around.  Then I folded and pressed to the line.  The first leg turned out much better.  The second leg, not as good, but better than before.  I called it good enough.  Sometimes these projects just get to a point where you need to say ‘good enough’ and be done with it.

The pattern was one I had used in the past to make my very first pair of pajama pants.  The first pair of pants I made were a bit big on me.  So, I trimmed the pattern down to the next size.  Unfortunately, it seem that I was right the first time.  The summer version if a little snug to get over the hips and when I sit down, it’s a bit tight in a couple of places.  If I make them again, I guess I will have to add a bit to the pattern.  I wonder how that will go?

An Introduction

I was born and raised in a small town.  It was a wonderful place to grow up.  We lived out in the country and had acres of beautiful land to run around in and explore.  Although I no longer live in that beautiful small town, I am still a small town girl at heart.  This is my blog.  I hope you enjoy it.
