Life often has a way of rushing past you even when you try your best to hold and keep things in control, it doesn’t always work.

Ack! Current Projects

So I haven’t posted to this, my SCA clothing journal, in two years. I do have a somewhat valid excuse. In two years we’ve moved, my business is getting re-started, I’m working part time, and we have just finished the basement (sewing room). It’s been a crazy couple of years. Beyond that I am pregnant … Continue reading »

I had all the best intentions in the world when I left to come on vacation nearly a week ago. I told myself that I would sit down and be able to work on a post or two while my son ate his breakfast like I do at home. I had not anticipated that he … Continue reading »
