You Jump, I jump Jack - Rory Gilmore

What a peculiar year this has been! I had so many plans that have had to be adapted and changed a bit. Unfortunately when deciding on what needed to have a pin put in it the blog was on that list. However I have found my groove and have many exciting things to share with you both personally, business wise, and a new pattern collection! 


Kristi from George & Ginger designed the most epic Goth collection that has just released! Over the next few days I will show you all the pieces, even some with my mom. 



Above you will see the Bedight Bolero, this can be made reversible, this one is not, it is satin. There is also a non ruffle version that has long sleeves and a closure at the neck, I still need to make one of those. 


This is the Evanescent dress, the petticoat I am wearing under is not part of the pattern I just liked the poof it added. I feel like both of these pieces can easily be staples its all in fabric choice, I went a bit more Goth with these, I have another dress I will show you later this week that's a bit less so.


So something you should know about me, I grew up with my mom singing 'Where you lead' to me, and while I now know that's a fabulous song by the amazing Carol King, when I was little I just knew it was from Gilmore Girls. I grew up watching much of that show, and falling in love with Stars Hallow, and the entire cast of characters and especially Lorelai and Rory.  When making this dress it reminded me so much of A day in the life when they come and take Rory out for the night. When posing with the umbrella, I had an In Omnia Paratus moment and needed to jump off the stairs it just felt right!


Also I do know she was quoting Titanic 😉

Being a Military Child

Not everyone understands what being a Military kid is like. It is amazing and sad at the same time. I have lived in several states, been on more flights than I can count and gotten to see places people dream of vacationing. I have also had to say good bye to so many people, the adventure never ends. 

All of this is why the round that Mandi over at Fabriculous made a reality is so important to me. I came to her with an idea for a small off shoot, a panel and something to go with it and she made it into a 3 color way, 2 panel option, blanket topper, mind blowing round! It is something featured on her business page, something I am seeing people rallying around and finding as beautiful as I do. Its truly a humbling and incredible feeling. 

Not everyone understood the main color choices, which were requested by me, and she did add another color way for those not feeling the purple but I wanted to take a quick moment and explain why purple. Purple wasn't chosen lightly and if you know …

Let me tell you a Fabriculous story...

Travel with me back to December 2018, I shared a scarf I made into Fabriculous custom fabrics, I thought it was really cool and wanted to show it off. Out of no where the owner Mandi commented on it and asked if I had a store, and then shared it to her business page and placed an order! Now this might not have been my first order ever, but I mean she could sew this herself! I shared how exciting that was all over to family and friends 🤣

Flash forward a month, I was getting ready for a little family vacation to a resort here on the island, making a bunch of things to take on the trip, cause thats the way I roll. I get a message from Mandi, offering me some strikes if I was interested, and of course I was! 

I got them the day I was leaving for a few and made some pegs right away cause I was so excited, not only strikes and so many of them, but sewing themed! Talk about a dream offer. 

 I wanted to wow Mandi, because this was a HUGE opportunity to me, a well established group, full of …

Kaylee is going to all the amazing places with the Cat in the Hat!

The So Sweet Sweater by candy castle with out the sleeves added on is one of my favorite tops for my sister. 

Its not exactly short sleeves, but its its perfect for Hawaii winter when its not really cold cold, but breezy. 

She loves the cowl, hiding part of her face, more than hoods even I think. 

The fabric from Fabriculous was perfect for it. I love that even though this is a coordinate it can really stand alone as the focal point as well, I think this pattern demonstrates that really well, with out being a basic boring tee. Kaylee is anything but basic and boring!
