Tailored Outfit for Boys {for Raspberry Creek Fabrics}

I do LOVE a tailored shirt and pants on a boy!

When I spotted… Continue reading Tailored Outfit for Boys {for Raspberry Creek Fabrics}

You Had Me At Sushi!

When my kids saw that the new Raspberry Creek Fabrics Fall Collection had SUSHI fabric, it was pretty much an expectation that I'd be making them something with it!

Peony Patterns Mariposa Hand Embroidery {Release}

Summertime by the pool is the perfect opportunity to lose yourself in an embroidery project. As long as you're not chatty like me, and find yourself talking to all the other parents instead of working on the embroidery you'd planned to do for 3 hours while your kids swam. Ahem. So, this week I hunkered… Continue reading Peony Patterns Mariposa Hand Embroidery {Release}
