This week I did an interview and spoke about living in a tiny apartment and maintaining a studio within it. I was reminded that I don’t need to apologize for liking things neat. Funny how I do that.

Officially Sew-plies Crazy

If you aren’t caught up with this idea you can read about it here and here. To start I have been completing my Sew-plies Purse. I will discussContinue reading “Progress is perfection”
