When I saw the call for a Love Notions Blog Tour I almost scrolled past it. Then I saw the Origami, and I decided that I have to do it.  The Diva and I haven’t had Mommy and Me outfits for a long time.  At least over a year, so we’re due. She was not…

Back to School Blog Tour

This is my favorite time of year.  The weather starts to cool down, the trees change colors, and The Back to School Blog Tour is on my calendar. I had big plans this year to make them a few pieces for fall.  Fall still hasn’t shown up in NJ.  We still have full heat and…

Sew Long Summer Blog Tour

One Thimble Issue 14 Blog Tour

This is my 3rd One Thimble tour and I have to say each issue is just as good as the last.  This time I did not do a full review.  I did decide to review Winter Wear Design’s Amuse Boho Top and Dress.  My first One Thimble tour was one of Suzanne’s Patterns.  I have…

Orbis Skinny Harems Blog Tour
