  • My first Colette Pattern the Jasmine shirt

    I’ve finally branched out in my sewing endeavors and have tried a few things beyond quilts! I was inspired by a class offered last winter at JP Knit & Stitch, a local fabric and yarn shop. With guidance from the teacher, I completed my first shirt – the Jasmine blouse by Colette Patterns. This was […]

I dig out my sweaters from storage, start to bake more, and pick up the unfinished knitting from last year. This year […]
