The Christmas making
Christmas this year was unusual for one reason: I didn’t commit to making anything. In the end, there were only three handmades under the tree, and technically-speaking, two of them were actually on the tree, not under it.Read More: The Christmas making
Better late than never?
We saw some turkey fabric last month, while we were killing time at a Jo-Ann’s in Maryland, and Eamonn asked if we could buy some for pajama pants. Eamonn was four years old, last time I made him seasonal pj pants. Aidan was seven. And now, four years later, Eamonn has long outgrown his own […]Read More: Better late than never?
Lounge pants, Fall-style
You’re looking at another (my third) pair of Amy Butler In Stitches lounge pants. My other two pairs are very springy and summery, and I was feeling more like wearing oranges and greens than I was aquas and pinks, and I guess that was just the push I needed to make enough table space for […]Read More: Lounge pants, Fall-style

This weekend, I found twelve pillowcases, four sheets, and two duvet covers that needed, yes, needed to belong to my fabric stash. I’m going to have to […]Read More: Pillowcase party
Splash of color
It’s been a gray day, with splashes of color. Rainy days are like that. It started with me packing & shipping orders in my pajamas, and ended with me geeking-out on my laptop in my pajamas. I the middle I did a lot more geeking, a small handful of boring household tasks, and a movie […]Read More: Splash of color
Leaky pipes and polka dots
Our kitchen sink is out of commission at the moment. Why, you may ask? Well, apparently while I was rinsing off dishes and running the dishwasher this afternoon, the basement was getting a shower. Yeah, there’s nothing like a big ol’ hole in the pipe to make you declutter a basement in a hurry! Fun. […]Read More: Leaky pipes and polka dots

The voice at the other end was a recorded message, apologizing for the early call, but letting us know that the district was canceling school today due to anticipated inclement weather. Aidan was […]Read More: Snow Day
