Happy Wednesday! This week is a special one for me because I turned 30 on the 17th! I had a lovely birthday and there is more celebrating with friends and family to come. I feel so lucky to have many people to ring in my 30’s with, including this community. I am looking forward to seeing what sewing projects the next decade will bring and as always, I look forward to sharing it with you! <3
