Lucille went into the office with her dad today so I’m keeping busy cleaning and prepping projects. My scrap fabric is getting a bit out of hand so I’ve been trying to reorganize it according to potential quilt themes. I’ve never made a quilt before so I’m looking at designs that are more simple like this brickwork one, or this liberty stripe. A lot of my scraps are really small though so we’ll see what I can come up with.


This weekend I’ll be photographing a project that I just finished and I’m super excited to share! Mmmmm organic cotton sateen…


I got my Sew For Victory pattern in the mail from The Blue Gardenia the other day and it’s amazing! It’s my first time working with a non-printed vintage pattern, and despite the startling lack of stuff on the pattern pieces, it’s actually not really any different from a modern one!





This dress will certainly be one of the most interesting dresses I’ve ever sewn. It has two zippers!! The thing the made me fall in love with this pattern was the fabric shown on the cover …and I might have just found THE perfect fabric to recreate this dress in all it’s 1946 glory 🙂 We’ll see how the muslin turns out first.

What are you working on this weekend?
