One Thimble 12- The Azure Party Dress

I can hardly believe that we are on Issue 12 of One Thimble! (affiliate link) We are almost to the three year mark for my favorite E-zine! It’s just an amazing collection of all things sewing and I hope that you check them out and not just take my word for it. Issue 12 is chock full of some great new patterns and articles, as all One Thimble issues are, and you can check out more great reviews on the One Thimble Blog Tour.

Back to School: Made for Mermaids’ Style

My kids attend a school where we follow a balanced calendar, almost a year-round type of schedule, so we’ve been back to the daily grind for a few weeks now. They also wear uniforms, which kind of breaks this handmade mama’s heart. But just because we can’t actually wear our new clothes to school, it doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun and celebrate gorgeous patterns and fun fabric! I think we will at least have a pretty new dress for school pictures!

Posy Garden Blog Tour

Desert Bloom Beverly Belle

Back in April I received an email from Amanda Herring, asking me if I’d like to participate in her Desert Bloom Blog Tour. WOULD I?!?! I tried to maintain my composure and not go all fangirl on her, but I don’t think I kept my cover very well. You know when you have those favorite…
