The results of my screenprinting trial run the other night. I didn’t quite get what I wanted, but for a first attempt it’s not too shabby. Hoping to find time to try again with a more refined plan soon!

I started out January with a lot of big plans and goals, but after two weeks of snow days and sick days and holidays, I’m starting to think a lot of it won’t happen and I’m kinda bummed about it. #realtalk But as always, I’m doing my best to be patient and accept that this is how things work right now (and as always, failing a little bit). This super fun new photo backdrop is helping, though.

I typically run my shop on a ready-to-ship basis: everything listed is actually made and sitting in my sewing room. But starting in November, I couldn’t keep that up and was doing everything made-to-order, which I find exhausting. I’m happy to be very close to being back to ready-to-ship status! Yayyyyyyyy (And I will definitely spend September and October this year stocking up in a big way!)

For Christmas my sister @carazuri embroidered me a beautiful portrait of my sweet Oscar who died in June. Surprising no one, I cried when I opened it. Now he’s hanging out in my sewing room with me again. ❤️

Just finished this order of name tags for a backpack and other school bags. I love how cute these are! Hoping to have a version of this as a standard offering pretty soon.

Took a little bit tonight to sew the first project out of a book I got for Christmas, @aneelahoey’s Stitched Sewing Organizers. I’ve been wanting a new needlebook and this one is so great! I’m thrilled with the finished product, especially the leather detail. 👌🏻

New quilt for a new niece 💕 I used wool batting for the first time on this and I think I’m ruined for any other batting now. Sooooo soft and squishy 😍😍😍 #leahbeequilts

Having a very merry Christmas with my loves—I wish the same for you if you celebrate, and peace and love to you if you don’t. ❤️

I’ve been very absent here the last few weeks as December craziness took over. BUT I’m officially on vacation now! Processing times in the shop have been extended, Christmas gift sewing is done, and last night I took a few minutes to make a cute little pouch for myself, to pack my tea bags in (because I’m an old lady 👵🏼). And tomorrow...Florida! 🌴🌴
