happy mail kawaii case from Charm About You

Autumn is here, the kids are back at school and I have time to make a little something just for me! I saw the Happy Mail Kawaii Pencil Case designed by Mollie Johanson and immediately wanted to make one. This sweet case is simple to sew and easy to personalise. I'm actually going to use mine as a catch all in my handbag, for my glasses when I occasionally don't need them (the hard case I made houses my sunglasses) and any extra bits that I don't want floating around the bottom of my bag!

Have you seen the Aurikid SPOOL-EN-DIDS thread box? from IVORY SPRING

Good morning, Friends!  I have shared with you last year that Miss Baby was selected by Aurifil to be one of their first batch of Aurkids in an initiative to pass down the love of needle and thread to the next and upcoming generation.  Have you see Miss Baby’s Spool-en-dids collection?  This is a collection of 6-ply cotton embroidery floss (Aurifloss) produced by Aurifil.  If you have liked Aurifil’s signature 50wt threads, you WILL love these floss for your handwork.  You know the part of very little  lint on any of their sewing threads?  Same is true with ...

Aurifil’s AURIKIDS Debut: Spool-en-dids with Gwendolyn Sheppard from IVORY SPRING

Hello Friends, I am back from my whirlwind 3-day trip to Houston Fall Market.  I shall be sharing various Market-related snippets in my upcoming posts,

but I want to focus today’s post as a “I am my daughter’s Mom” post.

I will announce the winners of my Market giveaways this Friday.


Isn’t it interesting how once one has kids or a kid (in my case), more often than not, one is known as the kids’ or kid’s parent?!

Most of you know Miss Baby has been stitching with me since she was 5.  We have done ...
