Blogged today!
I'm not even sure how to describe what it feels to hold a real copy of my book in my hands. It feels more real than it did when it just a huge Word doc on my computer, that's for sure. I feel...elated...proud...tickled...amazed...my emotions absolutely are all over the place.

Love this little machine!
A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a Singer featherweight machine in a neat antique and consignment shop I found in my new neighborhood. A typical afternoon Florida storm was about to roll in and I left the shop without the machine, not knowing whether or not it worked and aiming to head back at ...

There's nothing like a fat package of fabric in the mailbox...
While I haven't found much time to sew lately, I sure have found some time to do some stashing! My mailbox overfloweth ;) The most exciting thing that's made it to my mailbox is a big box of Violet Craft's new collection, Waterfront Park. I snagged it from Sew Modern, and you can also find it in ...

Yay for a quilt finish!
We wrapped up the Negative Space Challenge in my local chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild, the Tampa Modern Quilt Guild, over the weekend, and it was a lot of fun to see the different projects that everyone put together. The focus of the challenge was to use negative space as a main design ...

Taking a break from the packing for a little bit of sewing...
The packing is going surprisingly well this week and so is the purging. It's truly amazing how much stuff you accumulate when you live somewhere for a long time. After I packed up my fabric yardage, I decided to take a little sewing break and start on a project I cut out a while back that I then ...

Blogged!
After the big move last month, my sewing space was relegated to the last spot on my To Do list as I found homes for towels and coffee mugs and the like. We did a lot of purging with the move, so I had less stuff to unpack and put away, but it still took me a long time to start tackling my sewing ...

Working on an oldie but a goodie...
I'm totally loving the new neighborhood and house, and I'm loving all of the light in my new sewing room! I haven't spent as much time as I'd like in there yet, getting things set up, but yesterday after organizing the closet and hanging my bulletin board, design wall, and a few favorite minis, ...

Sneak peek of a new pattern coming soon and a call for pattern testers!
Naturally, now that I'm in pack-and-purge mode, I've managed to misplace my list of wonderful, generous people who have volunteered to test patterns, so please leave me a comment here if you're interested in testing for me. Make sure to let me know if you're free to test a pattern for me over ...
