Easter pretties

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 22:35:32 +0000

I really love making special things like dresses, bunnies, baskets, felt eggs, and skirts for Easter, so yesterday afternoon Pearl and I spent a little time after school making what I call Easter pretties! She calls these little scenes “prerrariums,” for “pretty terrariums,” which I thought was pretty awesome too. This is a super fast...

I’m really excited about my Powell’s Books event this Sunday afternoon, October 13 – if you’re in Portland, I’d love to see you there! It starts at 4:00 in the Pearl Room upstairs. I’ll have all the book projects to show and will be excited to share lots more details about four of my favorites,...

the sunny saturday

Wed, 19 Jun 2013 20:35:04 +0000

I’ve been dreaming of making a real patio in our little backyard for years (and have the aspirational pinterest board to match), but things have already been way too busy to pull it off this year… bummer. So, feeling stressed out with a ton of freelance work on my plate and plenty of regular life...

Yay, this weekend is the annual Oregon State Button Society show – The Romance of Buttons! The show opens to the public tomorrow and Saturday from 10-5. Dealers will have buttons of all styles and materials for sale, from colorful unmatched 25¢ poke buttons (my favorite!) to rare antique treasures. There are also lots of...

five things about me (for Quiltcon)

Tue, 05 Feb 2013 21:55:13 +0000

I’m super excited to be visiting Austin (for the first time!) to go to Quiltcon this month! I wanted to join the linky party The Modern Quilt Guild is hosting on their blog, so here is a photo and five things about me for fun. I’m proud to be the historian for the Portland Modern...

my new Vera ironing board cover

Wed, 30 Jan 2013 20:04:10 +0000

I’ve spent the last week cleaning and organizing my craft room and wow, it has been a ton of work! Last year was so busy and it felt like every minute of my childcare time was spoken for twice over. So I sewed until the last minute and rushed to pick my kids up from...

romper revamp + sundress by shelly

Fri, 10 Aug 2012 15:00:20 +0000

I love Shelly Figueroa‘s work (and her book, Sewing for Boys!) and was so excited to hear about her new sewing class with Craftsy, Romper Revamp. She asked me to review it as part of her blog tour, and of course I said yes! The class is based on one of her original Figgy’s patterns...

may (so far)

Mon, 21 May 2012 20:23:05 +0000

This spring has kind of brought a bit of everything at once – rainy, then sunny, then rainy again… crazy busy, then blissed out on vacation, then back to the laptop… sewing, cooking, gardening, a long-awaited new fence, birthdays, and bagels! I have a lot of catching up to do, so I wanted to share...

mend it better

Tue, 17 Apr 2012 22:43:54 +0000

I’m very excited to be reviewing Mend It Better, a wonderful new craft book by Kristin M. Roach (also author of the lovely blog/project/zine Craft Leftovers) today! Mend It Better offers a wide variety of useful techniques, from darning and patchwork to weaving and crochet, for reworking and salvaging garments and beyond. As Diane noted...

Mon, 05 Mar 2012 21:50:22 +0000

I had such a great time at Sew Expo this weekend! Here are my finds – more on these in a minute. It was a bit of a whirlwind trip. Nancy and I drove up Friday night with a Burgerville stop, and got to hang out with Michelle, Brittany, Kaci, Rachel and Cherri for a...
