Hi Makers! I hope your week is in full swing! I am having a great one myself, and I am reminded this week of how fortunate we all are to pursue this act of sewing and have this amazing community of supportive individuals to share it with! I had such a great weekend full of sunshine and good times, including a wander on the frozen lake by my apartment and a super fun tapestry weaving class. More tapestry coming soon, I promise – I am soooooo hooked! As you can tell I am all smiles today, let’s see what you lovely people have been up to!
