I keep scrolling on the internet, reading stories about how one of my favourite bloggers/writers touched people’s lives. She had a far bigger impact than I realized.

Remember the glass beads and embroidery thread I posted about? I happily put those to use. Each bag flap is… Continue reading Newest Cross-Body Bags!
I seem to be making a lot of personal and gift projects these past few months! I have some craft show projects on the go, too, such as in the last photo of this post (and I’ll post more photos as those projects are finished); but making personal projects has been fulfilling, too. First up… Continue reading Personal Sewing and Knitting Projects Again!
