Not So Quick

After I finished my Granville shirt, I wanted to sew up something quick and easy.  I actually have a stack of quick and easy patterns that I want to sew up.  I’ve even matched them up with fabric!  I picked

Photo Monday – Brooklyn Heights Promenade

But mostly portraits taken on the promenade. We actually only rarely go there.  It’s quite a walk from our neighborhood so we tend to go to Prospect Park instead.  But my parents were there for the weekend and we thought

Where Was I Again?

After weeks and weeks of sewing for the girls all the time, I was really excited to get back to sewing for myself.  So many ideas!  But I had started my Sewaholic Granville shirt and decided I should finish that
