I've always wanted space to sew. When we moved here and I was able to carve out my corner, I went a little nuts with all the ideas I had of how to best use the space. Of course ideas only go so far, and I ended up being creative with what we had. It … Continue reading Revamping my space
The blog has been pushed to the back burner. I think about it a lot and I think about things I'd like to share, it's just not happening. So here I am, with apologies and determined to post. Friday sewing days still happen as much as we can make them, and there has been so … Continue reading Life, sewing, more life.
We have had such a crazy few weeks here at the Perona house! Jude started Kindergarten, and adventure he's been soooo ready for.

Sewing is a way for me to partition out whatever is going on, and allow me to feel productive when … Continue reading A Drunkard’s Path
We don't get rainy, gloomy days all that often around here. I love cool rainy weather so much.
