My Bio

I love to sew. . . . . daily!  I am a former English professor, and I've taught sewing for several years.  I'm the former owner of Sew Sew Darling Sewing Studio, and I now teach sewing classes at Hobby Lobbies in Louisiana. 

I'm a California native who relocate to the deep south a few years ago.  We love it here.  We just bought a small farm, and when I'm not sewing, I'm getting ready for my spring chickens and my spring and summer garden.  I also predict a milk goat in our future so we can make goat cheese.

I have two children, and we are in the process of adopting our third via the foster program in Louisiana.  We are so excited!

  • Success!

    Just figured out how to print on fabric with my inkjet printer.  Super-easy and now I have a ton more creative ideas for projects that I may or may not ever get to!  Check out the photo in my gallery.  So excited!

  • Artist Trading Card

    Working on designing an Artist Trading Card for a fellow sewist on the east coast.  This is a complete departure from my normal project (both process and product), and I'm very excited about the ideas I'm come up with so far.  I'll be sure to post pics once it's done!

  • Back to Work!

    I've had a glorious few days off, and I've enjoyed my time sewing.  I'm back at work (booooo!), but am daydreaming about my future sewing projects. . . . .

  • Super Bowl Sunday

    Sent the hubby and our houseguests to the French Quarter to watch the Super Bowl.  They should have a great time, and now I get to spend the afternoon sewing!  Yay!
