Happy New Year! Welcome to my new blog. I decided that this was the best avenue to showcase my designs and projects. I will be sharing the items that I make and describing fit and details.
A little background about me. I have been sewing since 6th grade Home Ec in 1991. I didn’t sew very much in my youth but picked it back up when I was pregnant for my first child in 2004. I made a few maternity items and a few dresses for my daughter when she was very young. We moved to Alabama in 2007 shortly after having my son. It was there that I really dove into sewing and even opened my own shop. I kept that going until my 3rd child was born in 2011 and we moved to Houston. Life got hectic with 3 kids and I ended up going to work full time. Then I was laid off in 2016 and had a really hard time finding another job, so I picked up sewing again. The goal was to clean up my sewing room and make things with the fabric that I already had. If you know anything about having a fabric stash, then you know that you never have the exact fabric that you need. And that’s when my fabric stash grew to what it is now.
My goal this year is to use the fabric that I have and only buying new fabric if I need a coordinate. We shall see how that goes.
I will also be sharing my crochet items since I tend to crochet during my family time. This allows me to spend time with my kids and husband while still being productive.
I truly hope you enjoy my blog and I look forward to what 2018 has in store for me and my sewing and craft goals.
