Well, it is cold here.  That dang Polar Vortex hit earlier this year, but right now it feels like April.  A brief reprieve for the bone chilling cold that is sure to come back soon. Thus…warm scarves! I made them […]

There was another call for pattern testing that looked like something I might like to wear, so I held my hand up.  There were a few issues with the bodice, but she got it figured out with help from the […]

Phoenix-005-Recovered

When I drew this design up, it was supposed to be the wings on a Phoenix.  Or the tail.  I forget.  I drew it at some point last fall (as in over a year ago, fall) when I was watching […]

We are heading into the lovely grey days of Autumn, where it tends to rain a bit and then snow a bit. Not looking forward to either, especially after the beautiful weekend we had. I took these shots right before it […]

Hey, back to Pinterest!  I know it is no longer August, but I made this in August.  I just didn’t get any pictures taken of it. This is my take on this Desingual skirt I found and pinned.  I did […]

This shirt is one that I sewed up at the retreat.  I copied it off a RTW shirt that I had in my closet that was getting faded and had some holes in the front.  I had it all cut […]
