Saturday was a happy Halloween for me, for sure. I got some yard work done, I got some sewing done, and I got my croqui done! I love them and already have sketches on several of them. I left blank space on each page so I could write notes or attach swatches, and included a … Continue reading Thoughts on Whole30 and Custom Croqui
Every sewist has a few projects that nearly don't see the light of day for whatever reason. This dress was that project for me. Not only was this THE DRESS that really got me sewing again, it wasn't actually difficult to sew, so it's near incompletion is just because I am so severely out of practice. … Continue reading The Dress that Almost Wasn’t (aka Colette’s Wren that I TOTALLY Love)

I'm not an organized person. I strive to be, I really do, but it usually doesn't work out. With sewing, especially, I really want to be more organized-- make a plan, stick to the plan, keep everything orderly -- especially when I see other sewists organization. I recently saw this post and realized that I … Continue reading Self awareness in planning and organization
Wow, it has been a long time since I've written! Last year in September, my amazing husband and I bought our first house. Half a year later, our adorable son turned two. The combination of these facts resulted in almost no sewing, and somewhat unorthodox exercise sessions. The house is a new build, and the … Continue reading I’m back! Did you miss me?
So, I don't know if anyone noticed, but I haven't exactly been chatty about fitness, lately. That is because I haven't really been doing much. With Vegas summer heat, I stopped running (temporarily). With my husband's erratic work schedule, and him not being home in time for me to make an Orange Theory Fitness class … Continue reading PiYo
One of the reasons I have been enjoying making and wearing dresses lately is they make life easier. There is one piece of laundry at the end of the day, zero thought needs to be put into coordinating an outfit, you instantly look more feminine and put together, they are generally extremely flattering, and the … Continue reading I love dresses. A lot.
Seriously. For a chunk of money, you can temporarily have few responsibilities. For my husband, that means no work worries. For me, that means no sweeping, mopping, cooking, dishes, or laundry. Ahhhh-mazing! We just returned from a fun, short vacation in Sedona, AZ, where we relaxed. My husband can attest to the fact that I … Continue reading Vacation is good for the soul!
Whew! I blink for a moment and the next thing I know, five weeks have gone by, with no update! I assure you it is because I have been busy, and not because I have been a victim to some strange shift in the space/time continuum. After my last post about plans, I did a … Continue reading And we’re already half way through July!
I haven't had a lot of time to sew, lately, but I have had time to plot and plan, and imagine lots of beautiful and useful additions to my wardrobe. I buy fabric as cheaply as I can. As a result, I have a lot of awful fabric. Since doing the Wardrobe Architect prompts from … Continue reading Planning new stuff!
