I'm a Lucky Gal

I have a lot to be thankful for this year. I am especially thankful to be home for Thanksgiving among family and friends. It feels so good to come home :) Dusty and I also were successful in looking for apartments in Philadelphia this weekend and I am STOKED to announce that I will be teaching classes at Spool on South St. in Philly. I stopped by yesterday and met with the owners, Laura and Craig. They also own Loop, a delightful knitting/yarn shop next door. I picked up two skeins of lovely Blue Sky wool and alpaca yarn.



christmas gift makings :)


{diy update}
Inspired by my Built by Wendy dress class I have been trying my hand at garments. I talked a few posts back, about revamping a moo moo I found at a thrift store- I'll save you the painful photos of how that turned out. It's amazing that I was able to make a moo moo look scandalous... guess my measurements on the side seams was a little off... So, I thought I'd try a simple skirt. I found some lovely printed chiffon (which was rather difficult to work with) on an incredible sale. It's a little big, but with a few tweaks it should be rockin'. 

the skirt has a pretty pink lining and sweet little military buttons


{new product sneak peek}
Handcrafted leather handles by Champlain Leather in Burlington are now available! They are SO effing lovely!!!! I was so excited I whipped up a bag for me, yes FOR ME! I used some fabric from the newest line by Echino. Will be available on Etsy soon!



pretty fantastic right?!
