So many things happen in preparation for a new baby! And I swear each consecutive child has required more, not less, despite popular belief. We live in a two bedroom house and are about to be a family of five. Wallace is still in our room (I hate admitting that) because until just a few […]

  • It’s so cute! The kids look thrilled. I’ll bet Wallace is excited about his side ; )ReplyCancel

  • It is looking so beautiful! We are in the same position as you, 2 bedroom, two boys share a room and baby girl lives with us. It is tight and not ideal, but what can you do? Make the best of what it is! ReplyCancel

    I just wanted to share that our 2 kiddos (6 year old girl and 2 1/2 year old boy) have shared a room since our son was 9 months old. Amazingly they never wake each other up – not from crying, or even full bed strips in the middle of the night thanks to a terrible belly bug. We had finally saved up enough for a tiny addition to add another bedroom, but decided to use it to by some adjacent land instead when we realized our kids would be devastated to be separated at this point. We know the day will come, especially with the age and gender difference. But for now, they love it. Congrats on the toy purge, we do this often as well as we have chosen to live in a tiny house with the people we love, not mountains of toys.ReplyCancel

  • My three older kids share a room since the baby boycotted when we added an extra person to his space. We’re a family of 6 in a three bedroom and so far it’s worked out great. I love that you chose to not go for gender neutral, I may do something similar that reflects the personalities of each child. I have one daughter who is really mellow and one who is not so much. :) Both boys are pretty chill, but you’ve given me some thoughts to add to their room.ReplyCancel

I dabble in so many different aspects of sewing, that sometimes its a while before I work on one specific thing or another. In other words, I can sometimes be a binge crafter. Its been a while since I’ve done foundation piecing, and I was reminded as I was working on my latest project just how […]

    I just saw Juliana Horner’s fabrics at the store, and fell in love with a particular pattern! But alas, the care instructions say “do not iron”–which confuses me, it’s cotton fabric and it didn’t seem any different than her fabrics that are able to be ironed. Low heat, I guess I could understand…but no iron?ReplyCancel

    • I have no clue why it would say that. I’ve washed and ironed many of her fabrics. They are a standard premium quilting cotton- so don’t worry! They shouldn’t be ruined with regular care.ReplyCancel

    Well, I’m going to try ironing it on low on an edge, and I’ll see what happens! It’s such gorgeous fabric that I can’t wait to use it!ReplyCancel

I have been wanting to make this bag for months! I’ve checked the Janome + Anna Maria site almost daily waiting for its debut. Last week, when Pierette announced that the pattern was up, I dropped all plans, and focused entirely on the Right Turn Bag. It was such fun to pull fabrics and ribbons for […]

    I think this looks awesome! Is this the small size bag?ReplyCancel

    • I’m thinking this is the larger one, but I’m not totally sure! I may have made up some in-between size, to tell you the truth! Its an awesome bag, though! I get compliments everywhere I go with it.ReplyCancel

I’ve been working on my new Liberty bags nonstop. I find that when I work on a large batch of bags continually, its easy to lose steam. So I switched up my very hectic sewing schedule for the week, and made Layla another Paper Fan Dress. Talk about a quick and easy pattern! Its just […]

  • I just found your blog through your Tree Skirt tutorial and I am so happy and inspired.
    What a fantastic blog you have here and amazing creations.ReplyCancel

  • What an adorable dress! I love the ribbon at the waist. Looks like she’s got a little space to grow into it, too, which is always good!ReplyCancel

    • Thank you! She does have some space, so hopefully she can stop growing so fast and stay in it for a little while!ReplyCancel

    Thank you so much for blogging this creation. I downloaded the fan dress too – have lots of little girls in mind, and i’m thrilled to know it’s easy to make. Love the colours. Sympathise with no purchasing power – me too!! But it does make push one to be a lot more creative with one’s stash, and reduce the bulging boxes.

    Well done; really love the family reunion blouse. I have that pattern for older sizes, and it’s great to know that embarking on it won’t involve too much angst.ReplyCancel

Now that my Spinning Stars Quilt has been gracing my bed for about a month, I’ve really begun to feel an urge to add pillows. Lots and lots of pillow. Justin disagrees about the amount, but there is simply no limit to the kinds of pillows you can make. There are so many shapes, sizes, […]
