This last weekend I had a couple of hours to work in my sewing room. I was almost at a loss for what project to work on, then I remembered that last time I straightened up the room I put many unfinished projects (UFO's) into one location. I hurried over and opened it up. This… Continue reading Workbasket – Layette Done!
The layette project is almost at an end. Being that I had started this project as a gift for someone else, but it was no longer needed, I hadn't initially had a hard "finish by" date.

Fitting little mending projects in here and there as I can. This is what I was able to complete since we last talked about such things: Double seemed up the small tear in the key pocket of a pair of bf's running shorts. Let the hem down in a pair of second hand pants that… Continue reading Mending Monday – A little of this and a little of that
