Ahhhhhh. The was me getting the internet again. We’ve been without since we moved last weekend, and I pined for it like Buttercup for her Wesley. Thanks everybody for such great moving tips, they really did help! I ended up deciding Friday night at about 6:30 pm that I wanted to move the next day,… Read more »

Moving!

So for all of you who just scan through the pics of my posts (don’t we all?) and missed it, we’re moving!  My boy Allan got a sweet job in SLC, and we found a great little place and are trying to get outta here in the next week. I hate moving. Well, that is–I’ve… Read more »

Black and White Chevron Maxi Dress

Black or White_2

It don’t matter if yo’ black or white…stripes don’t match up.

His Easter Best: The Handsome Little Suit

Remember when I was scheming a handsome little suit? I got far enough to cut it out, complete the first step, become intimidated and bored, and then let it sit on my shelf for six months. I figured I’d better make a go of it again before he grows out of it, which turns out,… Read more »

Easter Best: Sewing for the Girl–Sunshine Sundress

happyjumper2

I made this. From a sheet that a friend gave me. I used McCall’s 6077 vintage pattern. I added the detail on the bodice because the placement of the buttonholes that the pattern indicated and I stupidly followed were, let’s just say, VERY unfortunately positioned, and I HAD to do something to cover them up. My goal… Read more »
