vintage floral kensington dress

I was looking over at my fabric the other day while nursing Jack at my computer (as one does....amiright?), and noticed this fabric poking out of a pile. I had thrifted it last year-it's a lovely vintage slinky knit that has one of the most unique prints I've seen! Sadie and I couldn't figure out if the design is of mushrooms, hats, birds, or all … [Read more...]

playtime quilt (& giveaway!)

playtime quilt

While I was working on the big room switcharoo, I realized Ava would need a new quilt for her toddler bed. Reasons being: her old quilt didn't quite match the vibe I was going for, and also it's her lovey and she drags it EVERYWHERE. So it's kinda dingy now. But well loved! I bought a bench with storage for all their smallish quilts and blankets, … [Read more...]

So with baby boy on the way there's been a big shifting of the rooms in our house...my sewing room moved to Ava's old room (the nursery), and we moved the girls into my old sewing room. It's the largest bedroom besides our master, but we had to have the sliding door changed to a window first. We're making progress on the room-it's almost done and I … [Read more...]

Having the layout in mind I picked out my fabrics from fabric.com (will link … [Read more...]
