Soddy Seamstress Adventures: Placemats Part 2

I didn’t get the project finished today (didn’t think I would). I took the kids on a playdate to an outdoor park/playground with a friend.

One of 3 months ofContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 28”

Year of Projects: Week 27

I’ve been working almost exclusively on the “Right Round” Project. I am currently about 55% of the way through the project and I love it more every day!
