I can't believe another client deadline of 8/31 is nearly here but on the other hand - did my brother really get his kitten only three weeks ago? I thought he had her for two months now.

FO – Yoga Pants

The past several weekends, I've woken up feeling sad. Not wanting to be idle, I decided to find an activity that I could lose myself in. Something meditative and soothing, but an activity that I could finish faster for instant gratification. Enter sewing. I've documented my sewing attempts on and off the past several years… Continue reading FO – Yoga Pants

Memorial Day Weekend

Hello friends! If you are in the states, Happy Memorial Day. We have the day off today, which is so nice. I don't know what to do with all this unstructured time.
