Details Pattern Thread Theory Eastwood Pajamas Sewed version 3 with button fly in size large No alterations Fit The fit is good, but the size large says it has an an inseam of 31″ and Matt has an inseam of 32″, so these pajamas…

2019 Goals

Okay, my last post was maybe a little somber, but I swear this post will be way more upbeat. I am actually super excited about this year. Matt and I have dubbed 2019 “The Year of Getting Shit Done”. You know, all of the little nagging things that have been on our to-do lists forever. For him, it’s exhibiting his…

2018 Year in Review

In 7 years of this blog, I have only missed one “Year in Review” and that was last year. I also didn’t write a goals post, so we don’t have to talk about how far I got with my goals. There were a lot of things going on at the beginning of 2018, as life tends to do: lingering job…

Clarke Pullover

I just realized that (according to Ravelry) I have been knitting for over six years now! You would think I would have gotten faster in that time, but for some reason I’m still a pretty slow knitter. I must be getting slightly faster though, because I knit a Clarke Pullover by Jane Richmond in less than my normal average of…

Red Plaid Carolyn Pajamas

It’s a Merry Day after Christmas for me!

Like I said, it’s the day after Christmas, so that’s why there are no presents under the tree. In…

Nautical Birthday Emery Dress

It’s become a tradition for me to make myself a dress to wear at my annual chicken bingo birthday party and despite how busy I have been this year, I decided I couldn’t break tradition and should sew a dress about a week before the party (this should sound familiar to a lot of you). Thanks to ye old stash, I…

My Sewing Room

After 10 years of living in my house, I finally get the bigger spare bedroom for my sewing room! The story of this room—and why I haven’t gotten to use it until now—is long and boring. It basically involves having roommates and then being too lazy to switch rooms when Matt moved in (and made it his studio/office). The thing…

Matt’s Birthday Negroni #2

Happy September! Summer feels like it flew by and already the signs of fall are beginning to show; it’s getting dark earlier and the evenings are starting to get chilly. I can’t complain though—I love the changing of the seasons and I’ve had a pretty good summer full of gardening, backyard barbecues, some sewing and knitting, a couple of fun weekend…
