It's been a little quiet on the blog front. That's ok though. At this point, I don't have ambitions to write a blog post on any type of schedule. But lately on IG (where I do enjoy my online sewing friend socialization) I've seen the hashtag #sewingtop5 and I went searching for what that was… Continue reading My Best 5 of 2017
