A tale of two costumes

So, can we agree that this may be one of the most adorable costumed children you have ever seen? Call me biased because I created both costume and child, but it is #1 hard to deny and #2 my main defense in explaining a momentary ethical lapse I experienced at Halloween.
Let’s just start by saying [...]

My Purse

Although I have been using her for 6 months now, I thought it was time for a formal introduction. Meet Janet, the purse I made for myself for my birthday last summer.

Summery Skirts

I had a frenzy of skirt-making the first week of last summer. During this week, my eldest usually goes to his grandparents, leaving me with time to have my last fit of crafting before shifting to summer mode and saying goodbye to such indoor domestic pursuits for the season. Sigh.

#3 An end-of-the-year thank you gift [...]

The ball got rolling when I [...]

Ruby’s quilt

During one of my scrap sorting sessions, I collected up a pile involving these colors. I started with that pile and filled-in with some other fabrics I had and before I knew it, I was making a quilt for the day when my 3-year-old Ruby gets a twin-size bed. While I had intended to use [...]

I got lost in polyester knit a while back and haven’t surfaced since. I have been unable to resist fun polyester knits when I come across them second-hand: textured, stretchy, thick, bold and bright. You know, the fabric of your Grandma’s pantsuit from back-in-the-day. But I did not really know how I was going to [...]
