Sweet Iced Donuts

It’s no secret I love a good simple appliqué pattern.

A New Addition To The Family & A New Pattern

It’s been a bit quiet here lately, but that’s because we welcomed the newest addition to our family, a baby girl just two weeks ago. Claire Edith is her name, and we are all smitten, including her big brother.

Rainbow Appliqué Pouch

Oh how I love pretty fabric, and sweet rainbows.
