A crib quilt for each day of the week

My baby hasn’t even been born yet and already he or she could use their own quilt rack. Thanks to wonderfully talented family and friends, my baby is definitely going to be spoiled in the handmade department. Here’s a little eye candy for your Thursday as I share the wonderful creations that have been made […]

It’s a Christmas miracle

It’s Christmas Eve and I don’t have any last minute sewing to do … It’s a Christmas miracle. Normally about this time I’m freaking out about how exactly I’m going to finish everything and get it wrapped in time. Honestly, it doesn’t really even feel like Christmas if I’m not still up at 5 a.m. […]

Handmade Christmas present reveal

It’s that time of year when my relatives smiling faces will grace the blog holding up the handmade gifts they got for Christmas. I hope you enjoy it, I’m sure they don’t. American Girl doll wardrobe For years whenever I make a garment for myself I also made a tiny version for my niece, in […]

The book is a collection of essays about knitting, mothering, living in an old house with two closets and a big stash (knitters have stashes too) […]
