  • Around the World Blog Hop!: SK Edition

    Two SK blog posts within one 24-hour period? Without paying or naming your first born after me? I know. And you’re welcome. This time, it’s my rendition of the Around the World Blog Hop! Yep, yep, I too was clueless about this phenomenon until my lovely creative cohort Cynthia Frenette tagged me. And now here I am, […]

  • Summer Redux

    Hellooooooooooo. Remember me? I know, I know. Well, here’s the abbreviated gist: I’m working on my first book! Yup, you heard me right. Although it seems like I’ve fallen off the face of the earth (er, is that what that breeze is?), I’ve actually been fully consumed with creating and writing and creating some more. It’s […]

  • Modern Traditional Mini Quilt Challenge!

    Hey, hey, did you hear about the great Modern Traditional Mini Quilt Challenge announced yesterday over at Timeless Treasures and Dear Stella? If you thought you might enter but don’t have just the right Timeless Treasures fabric to add to your Mini Quilt entry, not to worry because here’s where I save the day like the […]

  • No Foolin’: Recent Sewing Projects

    Firstly, Happy April Fools’ Day. Secondly, I have no pranks for you today. Sold out of them yesterday and getting restocked tomorrow, so today, you’re just plain outta luck. Sorry. Now on to more interesting things… Here’s another bunch o’ stuff I’ve been up to recently. I figured it would be nice to post these […]

  • WIP: Halloween Costume Beginnings

    This is what happens when you completely sidetrack from everything else you’re working on and decide you need to get a headstart on at least one of your kids’ Halloween costumes while simultaneously using up fabric scraps that you basically hate.  See, I’m that person that does not turn down a “Hey, I’ve got a […]

  • WIP Glimpse

    Here’s a tiny glimpse of something I’ve been working on recently! A pretty epic undertaking that kept ballooning…getting bigger and bigger with more detail and more detail… It was a lot of work but totally fun to make; I’ll show you it in it’s finished form once it’s ready! 🙂

  • Multiple Versions

    When I’m thinking about a theme to morph into a textile pattern, I usually stick with my first idea. That’s often best because I can all too easily come up with multiple concepts or styles to illustrate a subject (a good and a bad thing sometimes). Although only one of those ideas will typically see […]

  • Taking Breaks

    When you’re busy working on projects and need a break, what do you do? If you’re me, you’ll consider eating chocolate like it’s a qualifying round for the next Olympics, possibly take a nap because the baby needs one and you need to keep him warm (even if it’s summertime), or do more work, but […]

  • What’s Messier: My Studio or My Mind?

    I think it’s a tie. Nope, nope, actually, I think SK Brain wins for Most Messiest Possession. I have so much going on at the moment that I can’t think straight. Designs and projects and emails and whatever else I need to keep up with. My studio isn’t in top shape yet either. *Collective gasp.* […]

  • Weekend WIP

    As the US goes into a long holiday weekend, (I don’t get one this week but will instead be trying to play catch up; don’t most of us?), I thought I’d share a quick glimpse of a WIP I’m currently tinkering with… Somebody seems a bit sour about something, wouldn’tcha say? I’d steer clear until […]
