Fixed!

Remember that cowl neck top I made that wasn’t working so well? Here’s what it looks like now! This is what it looked like before. Gap at the underarms… and gap at the back neck. I ended up taking it in

Photo Monday – Crayons

I’m halfway out of my photography slump!  I’m having ideas of things I want to try again.  However, the time/energy are still lacking.  This week, I even had to do indoor shots with artificial lighting.  Thank goodness for RAW processing

Kids Clothes Week – Pretty Bird Dress

I fell in love with the Annabelle dress when I saw it.  Those chevrons!  It was just screaming to be made for souricette 1.  That child has never seen a maxi dress/skirt she didn’t love.  She wears only leggings and

Kids Clothes Week – A Trio of Tees

A friend of mine has a daughter who saw me sewing once.  I was making a T-shirt and she asked me if I could make her one.  I never really answered and she never forgot.  When I heard that this

Photo Monday – Composition Play

Have you seen Still?  I love it.  The pristine white background that puts the focus entirely on the object.  I’ve seen how the photographer sets up her shots.  It’s doable but a lot of work.  Waiting for the perfect light isn’t

Souricette 1 loves to sew.  Not too long.  She can’t sew for more than, say, an hour at a time.  But she can sew and she loves it.  I offered to help her make herself something during her last Spring

Photo Monday – A hiatus of Sorts

I tried, I really did.  But I was feeling like this. A bit of news: we put our house on the market this week.  Exciting, right?  And nerve wracking.  And I knew we would have to leave the house all

Wearable Muslin? Ummm…

You know what?  I don’t use the big pattern companies’ patterns much.  It isn’t that I don’t like them.  They’re fine.  It’s just that they do that despicable thing where they split the patterns up into size groups. Take this

Equestrian Blazer

Finally got around to taking pictures! This is the Equestrian Blazer by Kate Gilbert.  I used Naturally Naturelle 10 ply yarn (yes, I do think the name is a little ridiculous) in grey.  It’s 100% wool and it’s seriously on
