*I’m married to a cereal-eating, mountain biking, school teacher who is always building something.
*I’m the mother of a 1st grader named Simon, a preschooler named Grace, and my sweet little baby Ruth---all of whom I adore.
*On any given day you can find me wearing pajamas in public, down at the gas station getting a soda, eating nachos, walking around barefoot, or a combination of any of the above.
*My dream life would involve living on Main Street USA in Disneyland where we would leave only to spend time on the beach and to shop for fabric.
*I love Dr.Pepper, staying up late reading, watching Hoarders, drawing, painting, the smell of pumpkins, thrift store shopping, home grown tomatoes, virgin mint juleps, pearl necklaces, white T-shirts, and of course sewing.
So…that’s that. I’m glad you stopped by our blog. I hope you come back soon.
Hi. I am the other Elizabeth and am a stay at home momma to three kids, Aaron who is 9, Hannah, 6 and Isaac, 1. My days involve laundry, running around in the car, mopping under high chairs (I wish someone would invent a roomba for that!) and just entertaining general chaos around here. But I wouldn't have it any other way....
I started sewing as a teenager and loved it, but as what sometimes happens, suddenly decided it wasn't cool anymore and quit.....a huge regret in my life. I started sewing again 5 years ago after Hannie was born, and have never looked back. And while I am still on the sewing learning curve, it has been a fun ride that has taught me that it is never too late to learn a new skill.
I love sewing vintage patterns, especially children's. Am always trying to sew through the stash, and for every 5 projects that I am working on, there are always a couple of craft fails involved, some of which are real doozies!
A perfect day of mine involves a pool, an ice-cold limeade and a fabulous book....with an afternoon nap and some sewing time too, all whilst my children behave perfectly and never have a quarrel. HA! If only.
Thanks for sticking around....and please don't tell me that I am the only one who had the "Dorothy Hamill" haircut in the 80's.....I laugh every time I see that picture.
