Me-Made Mother’s Day Hemlock Tee

First off, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to my amazing madre! And of course to all of you other moms out there! On the topic of mothers (and daughters) – I’ve been watching a lot of Gilmore Girls recently (I’ve seen them all multiple times… Danny hasn’t… so now that they’re on Netflix, naturally, we started from the beginning). I still love everything about that show. It’s right there with Friends for me. It never gets old. Anyway, if you like the show, you’ll probably appreciate this. I especially agree with #10! lol So… back to Mother’s Day… as much as I do love flowers and I know she appreciates them, I wanted to go a little more original this year :) I was going between the Mandy Boat Tee and the Hemlock Tee – but I think what drew me more to the Mandy Boat Tee was the one version they show in the pictures that’s made from a really pretty blue stripe fabric – but overall I like the scoop neck better. SO… I went best of both worlds and found …

Sunday Sew Love: Triple Take!

I seem to have an incessant need to complete things even when there’s no particular reason or need to do so. I’m one of those people who will finish a book even when I don’t like it half-way through or will complete a TV series even when it’s getting brutal to watch or I already know what happens. I sometimes wish I didn’t feel this way (visions of The Secret Life of the American Teenager are coming to mind…) :/ So long story short… (or short story long) :/ I realize there is no need for me to catch up on my Sunday Sew Love posts but here ya go anyway… Sunday, 12 April (left) Diary of a Chainstitcher Printed Silk Maxi Skirt | (top/center) Sewing is Therapy Dream Team (top/right and bottom) Looks Like I Made It Dog Coat and Wiggle Skirt & High Waisted Panel Pants Note: I save posts as I see them and I totally didn’t realize I had two from the same blog until just now as I type this… love …

Sunday Sew Love: 5 April

First things first… check out that picture: “Kyla, it’s just the Easter morning sky” you say. Well, yes… but that right there is the Easter morning sky… unedited… with no annoying black dot in the middle of the picture! Hooray! I finally got a cleaning kit for my camera. $8 vs. hundreds… I’m so glad I didn’t send it in to get professionally cleaned. At least this time it worked… I shouldn’t gloat too much or next time it may not :) But at least for now, it’s starting out to be a great day. HAPPY EASTER by the way! I’m hoping for no rain so we can do our brunch festivities outdoors, but I’m pretty sure that’s not on the weatherman’s agenda. We shall see… So this week is all about the details… ogle with me, will you… (top/left) Offsquare Winter Blazer | (top/right) Thread Theory Comfiest Jeans (bottom/left) See Kate Sew Soho Blouse | (bottom/right) Sewn by Elizabeth Relaxed Plantain Until next time,

Monday Sunday Sew Love

Well maybe one of these days I’ll get my days straight! :) So here’s what’s on my sewing table right now… I’m completely in love with this fabric, but I’m about halfway through and I’m not sure it was a good fabric-pattern match. :/ We’ll see how it finishes up… Exciting sewing tidbit! I won one of the prize packs from the Crazy Dog Lady Sewing Challenge! Wahoo! The winners were completely random, but I will take it! :) See all of the makes here and here. They are super impressive! So here’s the real reason we’re here: Lovely x 4!
