About Me

I love baking, sewing, and family time with the kiddos! I believe a handmade life is a happier life. I also have a love for all things British, Sherlock Holmes, and Doctor Who. :) I'm Episcopalian. I love being a mom.

Note: I am allergic to wool, so please don't send me anything made from wool or something that contains lanolin. Thanks!

Assorted favorites

I really love all things English Paper Piecing (some people don't know what this type of hand sewing is, so I'll give a couple examples of what would fit it: acrylic templates for fussy cutting shapes, needles, good thread, fabric, little scissors, little zipper pouch, etc). Thanks!

colors: grey, blue, butter yellow, or whatever strikes my mood!

books: mysteries, British detective fiction (like Inspector Morse and the spin-off Inspector Lewis series), sci-fi/fantasy, art/craft/design/sewing, baking cookbooks

tv: BBC dramas, cooking shows, detective shows (but not gruesome ones), sci-fi

I love hand embroidery! Favorite embroidery designers are Aneela Hoey, September House, Sarah Jane Studios, and Charlotte Lyons. I don't like cartoony or "country" style for anything.

I love sewing, by hand and machine. I like to make table linens, bags, coasters, bookmarks, original stuffed animals, the list goes on! I also adore sewing things out of felt (eco-fi felt).

I love Waldorf and Montessori style toys for my little one.

I love birds! Owls, crows, sparrows, etc.

I love hot chocolate, particularly mint hot chocolate (but fancy flavors of any sort are always fun! Just no marshmallows). I LOVE tea but am picky about what I like. A sure bet is Earl Grey or Irish Breakfast.I do not drink green tea or herbals. I like black tea and flavored black teas (but I'm allergic to ginger, so please no teas that contain ginger.)

I love paper and stationery products! And I looove fabric! Particularly linen and 100% cotton (organic is awesome!). Fabric designers I like include anything Cotton and Steel creates, Heather Ross, Aneela Hoey, Creative Thursday, Lizzy House, Nicey Jane by Heather Bailey (and others by her), Ellen Luckett Baker, and Anna Maria Horner.

Motifs I love are teapot/teacup imagery, rain & clouds, birds; sewing related (I love my Singer sewing machine; also spools of thread, sewing needles, etc imagery), and art related (like camera or palette or brush imagery).

I love printmaking and studied it as an undergrad. In particular, I like relief printing and carving blocks. I love handprinting on fabric, too.

I make original stuffies for fun and for sale. I find myself making cats, foxes, and birds, in particular. But I love all kinds of animals and stuffies/plushies, just not creepy or morbid ones.

Favorite Music

Classical (love the cello and piano, in particular), plus amazing classical choral music.

I also love music like Mumford & Sons, Rosemary Clooney, Bing Crosby, 1940s Big Band, Cat Stevens, to name a few.

And... I love Christmas music. I may possibly have been known to listen to Christmas music in August.

Don't like/Allergies/Etc

I don't like creepy/morbid things or horror. I don't like cartoony things or "country-cute" things. I don't like lovey-dovey cute things.

I also don't care for "adult" x-rated items and nudity.

Allergic to wool/lanolin, mango, papaya. Severe allergy to ginger.

I am vegetarian and don't eat any meat or meat based products. This means I also don't eat anything with marshmallows in it.

I don't drink coffee. My favorite tea is Earl Grey or Irish Breakfast. I DISLIKE spearmint or chamomile tea.

I am allergic to many metals, so jewelry (unless it is made from fabric or wood) is not a good idea.

I love this button brooch (the mixture of something antique made new, the use of buttons, the use of writing on the ribbon, its elegance): https://www.etsy.com/listing/97882108/antique-button-brooch-with-soldered
