Sew Happy!

Many people have asked me what I will do with my "free" time now that I'm not in school.  Well--I have found plenty of things to do!  I've been sewing, baking, making Valentine's, clearing off stacks of "stuff" etc. etc. And I'm still making jewelry/selling in my etsy shop.

One of the best things I did was clean out my sewing space! I went through all of my fabrics, folded neatly the ones I think could turn into creations for Lydia, and stuck all the winter corduroys in the attic (all the ones I brought down last fall--and never got around to sewing--boooo)

I have always loved the Mallory Pattern but for some reason was thinking it would be a time consuming pattern, and never bought it.  Of course--a 10 button placket on the back is time consuming.  Well.....I LOVE the pattern.  I've already made one (out of not so favorite fabric) to test the size, and have another cut out that I can't wait to make!!

Even better, now that my mother has retired, she is getting "bored" and is asking to help me sew!  Woo hoo! Can't wait to show you our finished products!!

About Me

Hey--It's me. I'm a simple, crafty, adventure loving wife and mom who loves to learn about almost anything. I enjoy the blogging community and love learning and growing from reading other's experiences. I became an RN (after being a teacher) and then realized I had lost the creative outlet of my classroom. I've always enjoyed arts and being creative, so I began sewing, smocking, soap making, and delving into other new hobbies! :) I live with my wonderful husband who is my best friend and our sweet little girl. Together we have entrusted our lives to Christ and His purposes. So through this blog, I invite you to walk along with me and my family through our daily adventures!
