That’s a wrap

Once of the interesting things I’ve discovered in the relatively short time I’ve been blogging here is that I find myself thinking about my own vintage style more than ever before, including my knitting and sewing. I never really used to contemplate how items would work together in my wardrobe…… read more »

That Clever Clementine Giveaway #1!

Today starts the first of my two upcoming giveaways, both sponsored by someone extra special to me: my mom! My super crafty mom has recently started a new shop, selling fantastic bags on Etsy as That Clever Clementine. She combines interesting fabrics (often vintage or re-purposed) and makes a few… read more »

Back to life

I’m back! There aren’t enough exclamation points in the world to express how glad I am to have my life back after two weeks of working non-stop. But I made it through somehow, and now I have a lot of catching up to do! Because I didn’t get a chance… read more »

All work and no play

Hi dear readers! I just wanted to let you all know you won’t be hearing a peep from me until after next Friday. I found out at work Monday morning that a huge September deadline was moved to July 29th, giving us 2 weeks to complete something we formerly had… read more »

Our wedding day

I finally had a chance to sit down and write up my Big Wedding Post! Before I get started, let me say that most of the photos in this post are from our photographer, Kimmy Noonen. The few non-watermarked photos were taken by my mom and step-dad. Kimmy was a… read more »

Pretty pearly pins

I have been having an exhausting week at work, the kind where I come home and can only think about crafting in my head and can’t actually bring myself to do anything. However today I worked from home. I think one of the best things about working from home is… read more »

Finished project: New York leaf dress

I’m so happy to report that my dress is complete! Friday afternoon I put the finishing touches on the sundress I started last weekend. I’d been getting increasingly frustrated with sewing lately and finally realized what was bogging me down in several of my abandoned projects: the muslins. I decided… read more »

Outfits for going out on the town

Happy Thursday! I thought I’d share a couple of my outfits from the long 4th of July holiday weekend. We ran lots of errands and ate yummy food out all weekend. These were my outfits on Sunday. Now, you’ve already seen my new restyled shorts, but I took them out… read more »

Little triumphs

I’m so flattered by all the wonderful feedback on my shorts restyle tutorial, thanks everyone! ♥ Lately I rarely seem to do little posts about things, so here’s a break from my usual long-winded style. LOL Yesterday, I spent 4 1/2 hours inserting a lapped zipper into the side seam… read more »

Tutorial: Restyle vintage trousers into shorts

I hope everyone over here in the U.S. had a lovely long holiday weekend. I have lots of things I hope to share with you over the next week or so (including wedding photos!), so I better get crackin’ since it’s already Tuesday, huh? Today I have a little tutorial… read more »

The honeymoon

Thanks everyone so much for all the kind comments on our wedding! I admit, I’m still catching up with life. I promise I’ll have wedding photos to show soon, but I’m waiting until we get our photos back and then I’ll share all of our stories as well. In the… read more »

We’re hitched

I’ll have more to share once I steal more photos from my mom, we get our photos back from our photographer, and I download the honeymoon photos. But for now: everything was great!

Saturday’s errand outfit

This was the last weekend before the wedding, and it was full of errands and unexpectedly getting a dead car battery replaced. One of the errands took us to Wisconsin, where we stopped for lunch at the new Mars Cheese Castle. So all I have time for this week is… read more »

Weddingish things

Less than two weeks until the wedding! So I thought it was high time I share some details with you. I’m feeling good about everything. Not too stressed. Just enough relaxed. Most things on the “to do” list are minor at this point, with the exception of a couple of… read more »

Memorial Day camping trip

How is it already almost the weekend? I’ve been confused about the day of the week all week, because of the holiday on Monday. I finally had some time to pull together photos from our camping trip to Wisconsin last weekend. We woke up bright and early Saturday morning for… read more »

Briar Rose Vintage KAL: Finished sweater round-up!

Well everyone, we’ve reached the official end of the Briar Rose Vintage Knit-along! It’s been a wonderful experience leading you all through it. I learned some things about my own knitting and my knitting processes along the way. I hope I’ve helped you gain confidence in your own knitting skills… read more »

A busy bee

I have been so, so busy lately. I have not even had time to think about writing a proper post other than for the knit-along, and I am so behind in my feed reader! So in no particular order, I’m going to do a short list of things that have… read more »

Briar Rose Vintage KAL: Seaming

Hey knit-alongers! We’ve reached the last instructional post! My last topic before the official end date tomorrow is about seaming. Call it seaming, call it sewing up, call it a pain in the butt. Unless you’re knitting a completely seamless sweater, you’re going to have to face this step. Once… read more »

Briar Rose Vintage KAL: Blocking your sweater

Hi everyone! Can you believe we’re almost officially done with the knit-along?? It was so interesting reading everyone’s thoughts about A Stitch in Time Vol. 2 and your next knitting projects. And I know there are several of you out there who aren’t knitters yet but I can tell you’re… read more »

A Stitch in Time Vol. 2

I’m not sure why I waited so long (oh yes, I kept forgetting!) but I finally pre-ordered A Stitch in Time, Volume 2. I am so excited for this book! Susan Crawford (who blogs at Just Call Me Ruby) and Jane Crawford also put out A Stitch in Time, Volume… read more »
