Denim Skirt

I bought some denim on sale a few months ago intending to make a simple A-line-ish skirt for summer. And it sat and sat and already I can feel the chill in the morning air. Finally, after my shopping trip this weekend (wherein I tried on a seemingly cute skirt that made me look like [...]

More Making

Last night I made a super delicious potato and squash torte after seeing it on Erin’s blog. Seriously. Good. It was really a great combination of relatively simple ingredients and plus you can trick men into eating squash when you douse it in potato and cheese. Actually, I think Paul likes squash too, so I [...]

Weekend Roundup

First off, thanks for all of the comments on my Dishdrain Alternative. Sometimes I wonder whethere it is “worth it” to post such simple projects and it’s nice to know you like to see them. It might not be the solution for everyone, but it works for me!
On to my weekend sewing story. Last Friday I [...]

Dish Drain Alternative

You know what’s gross? Those plastic drain pan things you put under your dish rack. I feel like every time I move I look at the thing and go “ewww” and toss it, only to buy a new one at the new place. (And yes, I do wipe them down occasionally, but obviously they aren’t [...]

And the winner is…

#16, which by my calculations is Katie! I will email you shortly so that Kayte can ship you a copy of her new book, Complete Embellishing! Sorry to those of you who didn’t win, but thanks for playing!

Along the Beartooth Highway

Yesterday we woke up early and made our way to the Beartooth Highway for some spectacular scenery. The best part of the day came early– we were driving on Trail Creek Road and a black bear crossed the street right in front of us. He was too quick for the cameras, but we were the [...]

Book Review and Giveaway: Complete Embellishing

I was so excited when the mailman finally brought me Kayte Terry’s new book, Complete Embellishing. You might know Kayte from her blog, Love Forever, or her etsy shop,  or remember that she was the very excellent stylist for Adorn (and before that, was a visual merchandiser for Anthropologie).  So what I’m saying is, the girl’s got [...]

Crocheted Hats for Sale

I know it’s a little early to mention the f-word. You know, fall. But it is on its way and I’ve whipped up some very special hats for the season, now available in my etsy shop. These are not my typical chunky fast hats, these are lighter versions that are perfect for crisp temperatures (made [...]

The Stash Ends Here.

I’m still un-burying myself from all of my stuff. I have gotten rid of so many things. I love the new apartment, but I’ve had to totally rethink the storage. One of the things that was nagging me as I was trying to navigate my chair from the sewing table to the computer was my [...]

Weekend Update

Phew, we are all moved in. And what better way to avoid the mess of boxes than to leave the house all weekend for the Sweet Pea Festival? Paul and I spent a good amount of time there trying to avoid the heat, rain,and at one point, during the Japanese Drumming, hail!;  and watching various [...]
