One of the things Kathryn wanted us to do when I went to visit was to make some capri pants for Katelyn along with a top. She couldn’t find much in the store that just really wowed her; we might have had a bit of trouble coming up with ideas [...]

“that’s what little boys are made of”
Y’all are way too sweet to me about the red jumpers, I appreciate it! How could I send those to the girls and not do something for Grayson. I found a piece of flannel in my fabric pile and thought pajama pants [...]

Yesterday I had a sewing class, well maybe more of a software class, to learn about a new update I got for my machine. Then I spent a lot of time afterwards trying to practice using it so I can use the monograms and lettering more. I did [...]
