One Year

Well it seems that many people in the blog world are celebrating some type of milestone. It didn't occur to me until after seeing some, that I had passed my one year anniversary. So much has changed for me in one year : We lived with John's parents, bought our own home, had a baby turn 1, took a nice family vacation, and found out John has cancer. Phewww.. who would have ever thought. I am so thankful that I have found blogging. (and I don't even want to mention my first entry, yikes). I've made some great friends, who have made me feel that I am not crazy for sewing instead of doing the laundry. You have all given me encouragement for my crafting, and support through this whole John ordeal. So as a huge Thank You for all the comments, cards, gifts, etc, I thought what better way than a good old fashioned giveaway!


I'll choose two winners at random on Monday morning. The first chosen will get the option to choose either a scarf or two headbands. Each winner will get to decide which color they would like their prize in. So if you want to be entered, leave me so love! Everyone is welcome to enter!!




On another note, today John starts his third treatment. After this is finished he'll be halfway done. Whooohoooo!

Hi Katie! I just subscribed to your blog yesterday - and wow that does sound like quite a year! Your creations are absolutely lovely. One of the things that I make is headbands, and I started making them because everything that I saw out in the world was boring - but I totally love yours! Definitely fresh and different! I'm looking forward to reading more over the next year :) Cheers, Sarah

Congratulations, Katie! As someone brand new to sewing (except for the horrid wrap skirt I made in junior high), I have been looking for sewing blogs. I just came upon yours, and I am so glad I did. Thanks for providing such pretty inspiration!
