My week on Instagram - Within a Quarter Inch

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 15:30:04 +0000

Instagram is so handy. A picture, a short caption, perhaps a hashtag or two, and it’s done. It provides a peek into a person’s world that likely wouldn’t happen otherwise. Why? Because it takes time to write a blog post and quite often, the topic […]

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 17:22:06 +0000

When you go through a major destash – things get strewn about willy, nilly, and everything in between. Having the space that the fabric used up is really quite refreshing. Looking around, I noticed that it wasn’t just the fabric that needed attention – but […]
