Although we all desire to be done with the mask wearing, the mandates still exists, despite our desire to get back to normal. It is hard, I get it, but I have to admit, I am grateful that I do not have to wear a mask for 8-10 hrs every day such as those who work in healthcare, retail and other industries. Even my husband, who works for our local newspaper is required to wear one all day, yet fortunately he can wear the cloth-made ones.  Above are two masks that are extra that I will be adding to my inventory for sale, each atRead More →

With the decision to create more due to various reasons, in addition to sewing, I will be doing a bit more crochet. This here is my 3rd afghan for 2021 and will be gifted to our middle daughter Holly, who will soon be delivering our 2nd grandson. Of course, when she saw these colors, she reminded me that her birthday was not too far off, hinting that she really loved these colors. No surprise to any of us in our family, as she has always been the one who loved bold, bright and beautiful colors like these. So how does a mom resist, when herRead More →

Starting in 2021 my goal is to be CREATIVELY FOCUSED: What does this mean? My focus going forward will return to my roots of sewing with pleasure and joy, creating from inspiration. In doing so, I will be creating more with materials on hand along with repurposing. I will occasionally create products to sell, that will be available to the general public, yet I will not become a mass producer unless I enjoy making the product. I will showcase them here on my site and social media, with the possibility of selling in other venues which is to be determined.You will be able to see availableRead More →

No, not me, but maybe? My daughter is expecting her 2nd son soon, so in a way, it is for me. I mean, being a grammy is very rewarding on many levels. Holly provided me with yardage of four 100% cotton fabrics, 3 cotton flannel, 1 regular cotton. With her first child she had all woodland critters, and to stay with that theme, yet also provide something special for the little guy, she found these fabrics that she loved. The first item up with the over-sized, double-sided, flannel blanket. These were our children’s favorite blankets when they were young (yes, I have been making, giftingRead More →

As a misc. item, I have added some homemade soap to my site, made with natural ingredients. Each bar individually comes with its own burlap, cotton-tie-closure bag, appropriate for gift giving as well as displayed on your shelf until ready to use.  Due to the sensitive nature of my skin, I transitioned away from OTC soaps, to create and provide soaps that are natural, not using pharmaceutical grade glycerin. The natural glycerin found in these soaps are derived from the process of soap making. All soaps that are currently made, are done via a cold process and are made using: Organic shea butter, olive oil,Read More →

Over the summer/fall I made some egg gathering aprons as a request from some clients. In making them, I used quality 100% cotton, making them two-layers, as are the pockets. Professionally sewn with attention to detail.  Each apron is $150, accounting for the time to prep/wash materials, cut, sew and apply pieces in place, as well as the cost of materials.   You can find more pictures at the For Sale – Aprons page Please follow and like us:Read More →

This past Tues., a new client messaged me asking what my wait time was for hemming a single pair of pants. With everything being relative, I asked a few questions and offered some options for drop-off so that I could get them back to him this week. Although I can’t always provide a quick turn-around, there are times in which this can be done without a rush fee. Wednesday, after work, he arrived promptly at the time he shared he would with contact info so that I could reach out to him as soon as they were done. When seeing that they were camo, lightRead More →

NOTE: you can click on pictures to see larger views. They are coming out a little dark on my screen, yet when enlarged, you can see more clearly. As my husband and I were out enjoying the weather on the deck last Friday afternoon, soon after he returned home from work, a young gentleman, who had passed by our house stopped in. He was curious if I did sewing work for others, as my sign out front is not that specific. One could assume it is a “hobby” or a business. Yet, with the dynamics of our town ordinance, I am not allowed to haveRead More →

Adding to inventory this morning, are a few fun fabric masks. Basic black, The Riddler (this was a custom order specialty fabric) and a fern fabric mask. They are all made from quality, 100% cotton, quilt type fabric.  These new additions are sized for men who have a little bit wider face or need for a little bit longer ear loop elastic. I have added them to the Face Mask page for adults Today I will be finishing up about a dozen more masks, made of fabrics I have used in the past for other style options, and hopefully added to the sales page byRead More →

With all this COVID-19 fun, I generally do not venture out into the stores, plus there is not much that I need. Yet, my husband and I ventured into a store, to look for a few specific items that we needed, when I came across this dress. It was on sale, 100% cotton and not made in China. I took my chances in not trying it on in the store. I was quite pleased with the dress, the fit, even with the long length. Yet, I knew that if I shortened the dress, I would enjoy wearing it more, without worrying about tripping over theRead More →
