Indiesew Fabric Batch | Lumberjill

After the summer of no air conditioning, I’m truly enjoying the cold temperatures Colorado has been delivering. We’re cheap, so we keep our house thermostat around 58 degrees.

Selfish Sewing Week | Andrea of Knitty Bitties

Hello and Happy Friday! Today's theme is maternity. With just about 8 weeks left in my pregnancy, I'm definitely wearing primarily maternity clothes. With such a small selection of maternity options available + the short amount of time you wear maternity clothes, creating a handmade wardrobe is an excellent choice!
