Family Cookbook

I'm suffering from sewing withdrawal! We're having some work done in the house which has made my sewing room and materials really difficult to get to.

And, I've been working on a family cookbook to give everyone for the holidays.

It was really a collaborative effort with recipes and pictures from all my siblings. It has been such fun choosing which pictures and what captions to put with them!

We included several generations from great-grandparents...
....to the future generation of cooks!


I think everyone will be happy with it. I hope so!

Sewing Workshop

I haven't abandoned my jacket -- I've just had no time since before Thanksgiving. I'm working on a family cookbook for the Holidays -- complete with photos on every page of family members from many generations. It's been great fun, but I would like my life back!

But, for those of you who don't subscribe to Sewing Workshop, I wanted to share the great new pattern that is just out. I've included the link and some photos. I love the lines of both the Tee and the pants. I just placed my order and can't wait to get it.
