Hey, y’all! It’s been a while. How has 2021 been treating you?

I’m sure like many people, I haven’t been moving around as much as I should have this past clusterfu… year.

I finally… Continue reading Getting My Energy Back with Greenstyle Xpress Tanks!

I don’t know what it is about… Continue reading Sewaholic Thurlow Shorts… FINALLY!

The weather has warmed up to beautiful spring temperatures here in New Orleans, but I have a winter-worthy basic to show you today! It’s the McCall’s 6796 sweater! I’ve made it 3 times before (1, 2, and 3) so I guess you could say this is my go-to long-sleeved pattern. This is the first time… Continue reading My Fourth McCall's 6796

H…. hello? Ahem, hello? Wh-what’s this?! Who??! Yes, it’s me! I’m alive and back on the blog! Did you miss me? Because I certainly missed you! Wow, so how have things been? How have I been?
