Josephine

I used to have a friend whose internet handle was Josephine.  We lost touch one day. I wonder what’s become of her… Anyway, that old friend isn’t the Josephine from the post title.  That Josephine is from Made by Rae.

My photography plans for the weekend were simple: pictures of souricette 2 and pictures of a couple patterns I’m testing.  Something came up and we had to cross the border into Canada instead.  I thought the trip would be more fun

The Best Pants Ever

Seriously.  They’re my very first pants and they’re awesome. Ignore the wrinkles.  I took the pictures right after driving souricette 2 to preschool and I was too lazy to do any ironing… Details, because I know you want them.  The
