Just Some Easy Sewing

I have such a huge backlog of unblogged projects. Getting pictures that make me happy to share has been a challenge for months now. So, while 3 tops I made myself wait for me to not hate pictures of myself,

Stuff I Made

It feels weird sharing stuff as if everything is the same as ever. But it isn’t, is it? Anxiously reading the news. Wondering if our travel plans are going to have to be cancelled (they’re in late June so…) Wondering
