Published by under Garden,Random

Class Project: Faux Wrap Dress

Published by under Sewing

Here was my first project for the class. We needed to make either a shirt or a dress. Something with a bodice. Of course I decided to do princess seams because I apparently like to drive myself crazy. No, it’s really cuz I like the way they look. Strangely I didn’t read the package of […]

Published by under Food

This is the salty plum soda at Evergreen Garden in SF. I love trying newthings so I had to get it. It was interesting. Not as weird as you mightthink but kinda salty yet sweet. Kinda like yogurt covered pretzels but notquite that good either.

Lab Project: Bathrobe

Published by under Sewing

For my lab project, I wanted something quick and easy but also something to use up some fabric I had lying around. I was quite proud that I managed to use only stash fabric for this although it did require some very easy pattern alteration. I’ll admit, it came out a little Hugh Heffner looking, […]

Cupcakes Galore

Fabric Boxes

Published by under Sewing

I desperately needed to organize my closet (specifically my purses in this case) so I decided to embark on some fabric boxes. I’ve been seeing them around the interwebs for a while and been meaning to try them. I was quite pleased with how mine came out. But even more so, I was pleased that […]

Catching up on pictures: St. Patrick’s Day

Published by under Food

Catching up on some pictures I wanted to post. This one was obviously from St. Patrick’s Day. We had a cupcake making event at work. I came in late because of a meeting and only had about 5 minutes and this is what I was able to accomplish. My chocolate shamrock on the far left […]

Returning . . .

Published by under Stitch Example

So recently there have been very few posts. I think for several months. But I have a legitimate excuse: we just moved so I’ve been cleaning and doing all sorts of other new house type items. But those seem to have settled. Or at least I have moved to the point where I can now […]
