Destash, Studio Samples & More!

I finally bit the bullet this weekend and went through my whole fabric stash.  Besides finding a few fabrics I forgot about (doh!)

Follow me on :  http://instagram.com/sunshinedestash  to see what I’m destashing right now. I’ll be adding more here and there, so it won’t clog your feed.  All you {Read More}

Sorry I missed WIP Wednesday!  I have a 5yo MacBook Pro that needed to be updated to OS X Yosemite Tuesday night.  I uploaded it, went to bed and in the morning discovered that Satan had taken over my computer.  The lag time was horrible and most of the sites I frequent (my shop and blog) would not load properly.  After reading a million comments on Apple support I finally ended up uninstalling Safari and cleaning a few other parts {Read More}
