Becoming Mom

This is my first Mother’s Day. The most important role of my life, and it’s a dramatic one. This is still (mostly) a sewing blog, so I’ve sprinkled two cute projects into this post, but I’d also like to reflect on the last four months. If you’ll indulge me… Before I had my daughter, I … Continue reading Becoming Mom

Ruffle-Sleeve Top

When I started this project I had no idea how long it would take. For something so simple (it’s really just two squares woven together) it ended up being the most knitting I’ve ever done. I almost feel ready to make a sweater at this point — and I say almost because it isn’t happening … Continue reading Pillow Cover

As I was sitting around today spending some quality time with Netflix, as I do (it’s Saturday…), I realized I have so many projects tucked away … Continue reading Big Blanket
