Who’s a crazy hermit/shop girl who’s just finished cutting 6,336 – 5″ squares?
Two hands way, way up!
Well, okay, so really Sophie Just helped with the showing off part, which is a fine job for her! The reality is that I have always loved to create kits and bundles, almost as much as I like to create with the kits and bundles them-
While I’m never entirely thrilled for the end of the ‘lazy’ time of year, I must admit – my brain has come to welcome the swish of a broom that fall brings for clearing out summer’s cobwebs. The time has arrived for organizing, tidying and finishing up – and I’m ready! Before Fall officially swoops in though: A big finish to share. Continue reading “Summertime’s Big Finish”→
Are you a lover of joyful little rolls of scrappy strips? We’ve got you covered.
Well, it’s officially July – and the Summertime livin’ is still easy…except now I’m filling it up with more sewing projects!
On the heals of my recent introduction of our newest Happy Scrappy Stack additions in the shop – I wonder if it’s obvious enough that I kind of have a thing for assembling fabrics that cozy up comfortably with one another.

Back in what sometimes feels like the olden days, when my family was young and growing, I remember feeling like there was always tons of planning and organizing going on. In those days, we went the grocery store once a week with a detailed list. We organized that list by section from back of the store to the front, because that’s the order in which my ducklings and I proceeded throughout the store.
