Over The Summer...

Hello there!

Long time, no blog. I apologize. Summer with two kiddos at home, needing full-time care and entertainment from mama, went by in a flash. The back-to-school ordeal is now behind me as well, with my oldest starting Kindergarten! A month in, we're starting to get into a good groove and I am BACK!

Something exciting happened this summer. I won a contest! Ellen Baker from the wonderful blog The Long Thread designed a fabric collection called Quilt Blocks and enlisted sewists and Etsy shop owners to create handmade items with it. I made 6 modern patchwork pillow covers and 1 table runner with the fabric paired with natural linen, and WON one of the coveted top 3 spots! Thanks again to Ellen for choosing my designs as some of her favorites.

Here is what I made. You can see more details about the items (and purchase them!) by clicking on the photo to get to the listing on Etsy.
