Hi all... Just wanted to let you all know that my blog has changed hosts, and I am moving. As much as I want to keep it right here where she is and go on documenting my sewing as usual, I had to make some necessary changes to accommodate my blogging needs. The good news… Continue reading Sew What, Gilly? Is Moving!
Hi all! So, I'll get right into it: I am in a bit of a dress rut. If you follow my blog, you know that dresses are my favorite thing to sew. Maybe I'm running low on steam. Maybe I'm uninspired. Maybe it's my Easter dress staring daggers at me from the "Naughty Pile" ever… Continue reading Lovely Loungewear

Happy New Year! I hope the first plunge into 2022 went well with you all. I have to say, mine was… interesting, to say the least. Starting off, my little family and I both ended 2021 and started 2022 with being sick. Yikes! I personally have managed to stay “sick-free” for years (yes, years!) so… Continue reading New Year, New Sews!

Hey y’all! So, Halloween has come and gone (is it just me, or is 2021 moving reeeally fast?!) and this year we didn’t do anything in the way of celebrating. No Harvest Festival, Trunk-or-Treat, no costume wearing, nor door-to-door collecting/binge eating candy. I know. Pretty boring, right? Instead, my family and I pretty much spent… Continue reading Back in Black: Fibre Mood Mindy
