The Occasional Blogger

Hello.

Remember me?

It’s been a while.

I hope some of you are still with me.  Reading my occasional posts.

I always think I will have so much time for blogging, but then life happens.  My family is first on my list, then my home and sewing for my shop, then getting pictures and listings up and somewhere near the bottom is blogging.   I wish I were here more to share so many great things with you, but I don’t ever regret putting my family first.

That being said, I have some exciting things to share.

I am now offering custom child/doll sets.  That means you can order a nightgown or dress for your child and a matching outfit for their doll.  How fun is that?!

I have also been gearing up for fall by bringing out my crochet hooks and yarn.  Fall and winter hats are in the works!  I have limited spots for custom crochet work, so please book soon to reserve a custom spot!

I’ve also added a charity section to my shop.  The profits from any item found in this section will be donated to a charity.  I am currently donating to the Canadian Cancer Society.  It’s been a rough year for friends being diagnosed with cancer, and even the loss of a friend this past month.  Pop by and take a look at what I currently have available.  Items will be added to this section as I get time to photograph them.

In other news, a friend of mine recently started an amazing site called “The Sewing Stash“.  It is still very new, but it is already looking like its going to be an incredible site!  There is a searchable pattern index (for patterns and tutorials, both paid and free!).  At The Sewing Stash, you will also find sewing book reviews, tutorials and more!  To round things out, a community area is coming soon, where you can chat with others in the sewing community.  This is a fantastic site for those learning to sew (Sewing 101 is coming soon!) and those who are more experienced.  If you are a pattern designer or have a great sewing tutorial on your blog, be sure to add it to the site – it’s free and will link directly to your shop or blog. Stop by and say hi, have a look around and subscribe to the blog so you don’t miss a thing!  (Next week is toy sewing week and I hear there’s going to be a GIVEAWAY!!!)

That’s all for now, but I hope to be back soon!  I’ve taken the month of August off to sew for my own children and I would love to show you what I have made.  Stay tuned…

    I’m still here, reading whenever you post! I love your crochet hats – they are so cute! I’ve been keeping my eye on the Sewing Stash, but things aren’t quite up and running yet (you don’t seem to be able to add patterns and tutorials just yet, but it sounds like a great feature.) I’m looking forward to seeing the site unfold, though!

    • You haven’t been able to add them, Andrea? Hmm.. it seems some others have been able to… perhaps email tech support on the site if it doesn’t work next time you try.
