Novello Leggings (and finally getting back on the road!)

By Sarah | October 26, 2020 |

Hello friends! It’s been a minute since I posted in here, and I’ve really missed sharing with you all. A brief catch-up, before we move onto the sewing: In January, after a whirlwind adventure traveling Mexico and Arizona with other fulltime families, we listed our 2600 square foot home for sale, with the dream of…

Happy 4th of July!

By Sarah | July 3, 2020 |

Happy Fourth of July friends! With 2020 more than halfway over, I could go deep here, and share all the insights, challenges, and opportunities I’ve had over the past 7 months, but I’ll save all that for another day, and just say that we are taking the day tommorow to celebrate the birth of our…

No COVID at the Creek!

By Sarah | June 27, 2020 |

  As the weather has warmed up, but some things (like the gym) remain closed or inadvisable, we’ve been taking another look at our surroundings, and trying come up with some novel ways to keep ourselves entertained. Thankfully, we’ve hit the jackpot in a swimming spot along the creek about half a mile from our…

The Adventure Continues…

By Sarah | May 17, 2020 |

When I left off a couple weeks ago, we were in the throes of packing/moving/home renovation. I won’t say moving during a pandemic was the hardest thing I’ve ever done…but it’s definitely in the top 5. Everyone keeps asking us if we are “settled now”- this is the equivalent of asking a mother of a…

In the Running…a tale of two Athletic Skirts!

By Sarah | May 5, 2020 |

Hello sewing friends! I hope this post finds you well, and weathering current events with, if not aplomb, at least a sense of humor. For this, I’m ever grateful to my children, who always seem able to make me laugh at the craziest of moments, which is certainly how I’d describe life right now, as…

Embracing Spring: Jalie Michelle Tank

By Sarah | April 12, 2020 |

This has been a rough season for all of us, but one of the best things on the horizon is the season itself- Spring brings with it the promise of new beginnings, warmer weather, and, hopefully time to find some joy in the little things. I know that’s easier said than done, sometimes, and truth…

Christmas in Mexico, New Year’s in Los Angeles

By Sarah | January 2, 2020 |

My last post (check it out here) left off with us in Yuma, on the way to Mexico for Christmas. Heading south of the Border as a family is something I’ve wanted to do for a while- but it seemed that the fear of the unknown always stood in our way- where to cross, where…

Playing with length: The Cape Cod Capelet

By Sarah | November 6, 2019 |

We made it through the beginning of school,  the overabundance of September birthdays, and the mad-candy-dash of Halloween, which means its time to settle down a bit into November, and enjoy the calm before the storm. The very fact that I survived all these events and lived to blog about them is more than enough…

Why I refuse to sew Halloween costumes…and a fall recipe favorite!

By Sarah | October 27, 2019 |

When I first started sewing (which was around my 32nd birthday, about a month before Halloween), one of the first things on my mind was making a Halloween Costume for my twins. I was unemployed, at the time, and deep in the throes of “mommy-boredom”. I assumed that making my kids an adorable halloween costume…

A Right of Passage…

By Sarah | October 25, 2019 |

After taking most of the summer off, I’ve been getting back into the swing of sewing and testing this fall,  and the Knoxville top is my latest project. I almost passed this one up, because I already own a couple other knot/twist patterns, but I’m so glad I didn’t, because that over sized cowl is…
