Ugh. The stomach virus we avoided with Elder Child sure didn’t miss us the second time around with Younger Child. My husband and I both were wiped out on Friday, pretty much leaving our toddler and 5 year old to fend for themselves since we were incapacitated. We joked about leaving a box of cheerios […]
So I’ve been collecting fabric for almost a decade now, and I am not sure if I have shown remarkable restraint or if I need to look for more. One of the nice things about the projects I am working on right now (my fabric belts, cut to fit), is that they showcase some of […]
I just finished up a dozen different belt styles, and each one is my favorite. It’s a good problem to have, right? These will be for sale tomorrow at my booth at the Saratoga Art and Craft Fair from 10-4 at High Rock Park (same location as the farmer’s market). I will have these belts, […]
