Hi friends! Long time no see, and apologies if you tried to stop by here earlier this month and found it in disarray … a hiccup with my WordPress renewal sent things off kilter. I’m still in the process of getting things back into shape! But I’m popping in today to share that I’ve started something a bit new, a monthly meander through my makes, called the Making Miscellany, over on Substack. I have perpetual hopes of making more time for this space, but I felt like I needed something a bit new and distinct … it’s (as you’ll see below) a monthly round up of the stuff I’m making and thinking about. In the short term, I’ll republish the Miscellanies over here, but if you like them, perhaps you’d like to join my mailing list over on Substack? It’s totally free and the monthly emails will land in your inbox the last Thursday of the month. And with that … on with the Miscellany!Continue reading “Making Miscellany: 1”

Hello, hello! Coming to you today with my most recent finished sewing project: The Persephone Pants by Anna Allen.Continue reading “Sewing Journal 3: Persepone Pants”
Today, I chat about the Gable Top, made using Guthrie & Ghani’s Sewing Society Kit.
Happy Tuesday! Today, I’ve got another little sewing journal to share with you (I promise, some knitting content will return soon). Fresh off the sewing machine, this is the Gable Top, made with a Guthrie & Ghani Sewing Society kit.Continue reading “Sewing Journal 2: Striped Jersey Top”
Hello friends! It’s been awhile and all that! How have you been? I’m still knitting whenever I get the chance, but over the past few months I’ve also been playing around with a new hobby: sewing! I’ve really enjoyed the focus and concentration that comes with learning something new, and I thought doing some short sewing journals might be a nice way to document that process and (maybe) revive this space a bit.Continue reading “Sewing Journal 1: Shirt No. 1”
