Notre Dame Dreams

I am so excited to be a part of Project Run and Play! You can vote HERE. When we found out the themes for this season, I knew the first challenge would be the hardest for me. We don’t travel, so I don’t even think about places I would like to visit one day. My Plan A was something safe and simple, but I knew that I wasn’t really pushing my sewing skills or my…

Scrappy Square Boys Quilts

This is all very unusual for me. First of all, I actually finished not just one, but two quilts! Second, they are made for boys! I bet you didn’t think I even owned boy fabrics.

Bitty Baby Doll Clothes

Hey there! I am still around. And, believe it or not, I have been¬†super crafty lately, too. The thing is, I just don’t get a chance to blog about it. My 12yo has also taken over my sewing area. She is sewing lots of doll clothes! Most of them are for American Girl or 18″ dolls, but someone asked if she could make doll clothes for a Bitty Baby. She made a dress and matching…
