PS –
I bet you’re wondering if I’ve sewn anything lately? You know me.., Sure I have. I just haven’t taken the time to write about it. Reviews are forthcoming.

Parting Shot: My Sweet Pea graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago, earning her Bachelor Degree in Business Administration – Management. I’m very happy for her. This is one of three pictures. I was too excited to think about pictures.



Happy Sewing!
