BOTM ~ May ~ My Brooklyn

Say hi to my Brooklyn!  She’s the May BOTM club pattern and is designed by Swoon Patterns.

It measures about 16″long x 10″ tall x 7″ deep when finished. For my materials, I {Read More}

WIP Wednesday ~ Learning & Doing

Lots of WIP going on in the studio right now. This is a good thing though because these cuties are ALL finally back in school and I have a few hours of quiet sewing a day! For the first time ever I will have each of my boys in a different school 6th – 9th – 3rd.  Three new starting and ending times.  It’s going pretty well so far, but I really need to sit down and work on my daily schedule! {Read More}
