I know I wanna sew!

Well I'm back from my wonderful spring break in Gatlinburg! I have been looking forward to being able to update my blog and post pictures of things I've been working on. Spring break was amazing though, it was so refreshing and a nice vacation. I loved it there and I have some wonderful pictures that I'll post towards the end of the blog . I have to admit I did miss sewing a little though because there were purse stores EVERYWHERE. I definitely caught up on it when I got home though because my brother's fiance and I stayed up until 3 in the morning sewing last night! Then when we got up we went to Jo Ann's and then sewed some more! It was so much fun! Especially around 2 AM when we started to get slap happy  :) Here's a picture of us before we had fabric and thread all over the table and floor:

I also finished up the wristlets that were ordered too! I was so excited to post them on here because I think they turned out very cute! I think they would be great for a quick trip out to carry your essentials, or even something dressier like a night out or a wedding. Let me know what you think :) You can also check out my Etsy shop to see more pictures like the insides of them or close up views.

When we were in Tennessee we did so many fun things and I'm still full from all the good food we ate. I'm not sure if anyone who has visited there has went to the Dixie Stampede, but I think that was my favorite thing! It's a dinner theater and the entertainment was so much fun! They got the audience involved several times and showed people doing tricks on horses and things like that. I don't have any pictures of it because we weren't allowed :( Here are just a couple of the pictures I did take though!

It was gorgeous there and there were tons of places with amazing views. I have so many pictures of scenery and views from high up because I was amazed at how beautiful everything was.

Thanks for stopping by and looking around! Make sure to add me as a follower if you want to keep updated on what kinds of things I'm sewing. I just bought tons more fabric to make some more purses and I'm hoping to get them done and post pictures on here and Etsy soon. Feel free to leave me a comment and let me know which is your favorite wristlet!


  1. The wristlets are so cute! I love the turquoise one and the black one at the top. Glad you had a good vacation. I LOVE the Smoky Mountains.

  3. Hi Megan! Thank you for visiting my blog and becoming a follower! The things that you make are so cute! Do you like having an Etsy shop? I am thinking about staring one. I will be back soon to check out the new things that you are making.

  4. I'm just opening an Etsy shop to sell my mum's vintage sewing patterns so I'll definitely go and visit yours.
    I LOVE your purses. I've decided that as I'm running a business selling sewing patterns (for my mum!) I need to learn to sew. I've also decided that I need to sew an 80s outfit for my silver wedding in October I just need to slim first!
    I can't wait to see more of your designs.
    BTW I found you via the Lady Bloggers Tea Party.
