I recently started going to the gym with my husband. Now, I don't know about you, but I feel extremely awkward exercising. There is something about making my body do all sorts of weird contortions that stresses me out. Stretches? I could do those all day. But cardio or faster paced exercises? No way! When… Continue reading Leggings, Leggings, and MORE Leggings!
I completely forgot about posting my April Minerva Crafts make last month! I was a little mixed up so I couldn't figure out which days my post went live on the Minerva Crafts blogger network page. But it's all sorted now and you get two makes instead of one! April Make: For April I made a… Continue reading April and May Minerva Makes
I have been a little under the weather today. I woke up in the middle of the night with a horridly painful sore throat. Thankfully, although I did still have to go to work, I was able to come home a little early. And now I am laying in bed eating some cold watermelon to… Continue reading Outfit Along 2017: Sewing Plans
I have decided to change things up a little. Instead of my usual "finished garment" post, I am going to share some "work-in-progress" photos. I've noticed that I am constantly trying to come up with a new sewing project in order to have a blog post. The problem? I am finding my wardrobe to be… Continue reading New Blog Series: What Am I Making?

I know there will probably be several more cold days, but I am so excited to see those days becoming less and less.… Continue reading Gertie’s Zipper Front Dress Review
One of the biggest perks of knowing how to sew is the ability to make beautiful dresses for my sister. She fell in love with this hydrangea print fabric when we stopped by Hancock fabrics during their closing sales last year. We purchased three yards and had just enough to squeeze out this dress. Literally,… Continue reading Hydrangeas – Gertie’s Princess Seam Dress
I shall just forewarn you, my dear readers, this is going to be a slightly picture heavy post. My wonderful sister managed to capture some fantastic photographs with my parents' camera, and it is amazing how much of a difference a real camera vs. an iPhone camera makes! Before I get into the pattern review,… Continue reading Simplicity 8013 Pattern Review
You may well be wondering why I didn't post on Monday. I just started working at a new job (Yay!), and I am getting ready to go visit my family for almost a week. Between a new schedule and last minute sewing, posting simply slipped my mind. Besides, I haven't actually managed to get any… Continue reading Preparing for Holiday
