Hello! Wow has it been a loooong time since I posted anything & a looong time since I have had time to actually sit & sew (or a real “day off”). This week I had the joy of getting a break from the day to day “go go go” & take some time for myself. What did I do with it?…well honestly the first day I slept & the second (& third) I sewed a skirt & shirt. Here are the results…..
