recent happenings

Hi friends! I know I've been quite absent lately!  When I last blogged about my scrappy trip along, I was all motivated to start blogging again more regularly!  And then, well, then we started looking to buy a house!  And then, WE BOUGHT ONE!  Well, we bought some land and ordered a house! 

Ground will be broken in a few weeks, and hopefully it will be ready to move in this summer when Mrlouwho starts his new job. I'm really excited about the house and maybe staying put for a while.  Plus I'm getting a pretty sweet sewing room!

I have been doing quite a bit of sewing lately.  I've decided to try and make a lot of summer clothes for the girls to avoid spending too much this summer.  So far they love what I've made and now I just need to get to work making some more!
I'll share more about these projects soon.

Did you know that it's National Serger Month? I didn't even know such a thing existed!  If you know me, you know that having a serger makes me enjoy sewing garments SO much more!! I was so excited when I was asked again to participate in a blog tour with Nancy Zieman!  I'm so flattered to be among those participating!  I will be posting on Monday as part of her Sew Knits with Confidence tour! I'll be sharing a project I made from her patterns as well as reviewing her new book by the same name.

Of course, there will also be a fun giveaway!! So stay tuned!  I'll be back... (say it in your best Ahhh-nold voice.)
