Acute-ly Stashbusting

For years, I have stoutly refused to make the same pattern twice. But as the designer, I can make the same pattern repeatedly. What’s that about? The Acute Shawl (Rav link) is no exception to my multiple makes of my own patterns. This one is my 4th, and is different than all the others! ItsContinue reading “Acute-ly Stashbusting”

Year of Projects: Week 48

Last week I had a couple of VERY quiet days when the kids went camping with their Grandparents. Much fun was had by all, and my kids were happy to be back home. Because apparently they missed us, even though we won’t let them eat chocolate at breakfast like my parents did. Aside: my parentsContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 48”

Year of Projects: Week 47

I was looking at my YOP list this morning- I don’t think I’m going to cross 15 additional items off my list in the next 5 weeks (I wanted to cross 20 items off my almost 40 item list). I know the goals are arbitrary. I knowContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 47”

This was sloppy looking and collected all the dust. Then a few years ago (2018-ish) I decided I was goingContinue reading “Shoddy Seamstress Adventures: Hemming”

Year of Projects: Week 45/46

Project monogamy really makes for some boring blogging. Oh look, it’s the same project I’ve been showing you, now 1/2” longer. No new YOP official updates. Plugging away on my hobbit door and Until We Win: Fight projects. I also wanted to share my logo stickers! I got them last week and never showed themContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 45/46”

Shoddy Seamstress Adventures: Pen Holder Bookmarks

The end of the school year is quickly approaching for my kids. That means TEAHER GIFT TIME. Their teachers have been AMAZING. Between full virtual, and simultaneous hybrid (virtual and in-person), and all the madness that goes along with it, the teachers have been beyond PHENOMENAL. I want to thank them. And I’m not NOTContinue reading “Shoddy Seamstress Adventures: Pen Holder Bookmarks”
