Big news friends, BIG NEWS! Part of moving back to the Portland Metro Area was for me. For my future endeavors and for my creative interests. Even though most of our move was decided by my husbands occupation, also for the kids to have more opportunities and diversity, my desires have come through. So, between trying to get us outfitted for rain instead of 10* cold, I am teaching sewing classes at Nic and Fig’s: a Modern Makers Studio!
Isn’t this an essential tunic? The Perri Pullover from Cali Faye is a really great sewing project for knits. It comes together quickly, is satisfying and can be customized so many ways!
As you can see, I went intense and found this puppy fleece in my mothers stash. Oh yes, Puppies in tiaras. What more could you possibly need?
I would have loved to pose for you in a very stylish gray and black option, but the rain only just started. I’ve been volunteering a fair amount at the boys new school, so I decided to channel my inner Lisa Frank and get on it. Although, this makes me think of Urban Outfitters… a little…
I wanted to break this up so I did a contrasting band for the collar, cuffs and bottom. What do you think? Am I trying to fit in with the 5th graders too much? Some of them are as big or bigger than me…
Side note, our grapes are almost ready to harvest and they are nearly as big as my Madre Beads, which go with everything as evidenced by puppies… in tiaras.)
