I am a sewist, mom, wife, designer, blogger, and fabric enthusiast. I learned to sew alongside my mom, but lost interest in the craft until my early twenties, and I've spent the last fifteen years making up for lost time! I've experimented with modern quilting, accessories and garment sewing, hand-printed fabric, and textile design, I have found my love in pattern design, and sell my original sewing and embroidery patterns in the imagine gnats shop.

    I’ve got a Myrtle Dress and a Flirting the Issue skirt ready to be sewn up, but family coming into town next week! I’m hoping to get it all done…

    I will selfish cut out a pattern since the sewing machine is in the shop getting some TLC.

    I’m going to finally finish a self-drafted skirt I’ve put aside for a while (and maybe make another Deer and Doe plantain shirt with 3/4 sleeves)

    I’m so sad but I’ll be missing this Selfish sewing week. I’m moving abroad and my sewing machine is already packed :( Such a shame. Anyway, I hope everyone has great fun and lots of sewing to show!

    I would love to find a little time to sew for me! Well, maybe that isn’t quite right~ I do sew for me most of the time.. LOL I make quilts and gift them to family or friends, and I make bags for me and my Mom. I guess my sewing time is pretty much mine. :-o Would love to play with all these clothing patterns though. ;-)
