I’m Sooo Excited…

…and I just can’t hide it!

Why?  Three reasons, y’all.  And if you frequent Pattern Review, make sure to take note of the third reason!

Tiny Sweaters are Adorable

…truer words have never been spoken…right?

It’s been a little slow going in crafting land, since I’ve been helping to keep a tiny human alive, but the times I do get to create are even sweeter than they used to be.

I started this sweater for Mr. Baby…crap, I couldn’t tell you when I cast on for it.  My brain is mama mush, but I think it was shortly before he was born.

2015 in Review

My, what a year it was!  Here’s a recap of how my life and (sometimes) sewing went in 2015:

I made a slew of maternity clothes (dresses, tops, skirts, but no pants, because, frankly, I’m still afraid of pants after almost 20 years of sewing) to fit my growing belly, including a bunch of pieces for the Pattern Review wardrobe contest!
