on vacation

as you might have guessed, we've been on vacation! We're heading home in the morning. Look for a full report of our week of fun!

the dog days of summer

Well, it probably isn't hot enough to consider these the dog days of summer, but we're almost halfway through summer vacation!

They're very hungry deer.

cheater hem tutorial

I made another pair of shorts from a holey pair of jeans and while I was at it, I snapped pictures and put together a quick tutorial on how to do the cheater ribbon hem. You'll find it at flickr.
