I started this blog back in 2007 as a place to chronicle my sewing adventures. Since then, it has expanded into a delicious hodgepodge of stories detailing my efforts to create meaningful traditions and experiences as part of the handmade, homegrown movement. Making things with your own hands is a great way to save money (sometimes), reduce hyper-consumerism and introduce more beauty into the world.
