Advent 2015

Advent 2015

Again this year for Advent we symbolically walked with Mary on her journey to Christmas.

Fabric ogling

Last week I won a gift certificate to Pink Chalk Fabrics! Woohoo, was I excited! I picked out some “Little Folks” voile by Anna Maria Horner, plus a yard of the essex linen I have been wanting to try. But enough chatter! Look at the fabric– I can’t wait to sew something with it. (Maybe an … Continue reading
