slowly easing back into things...I have a literal mountain of work, laundry and thank you notes before me.  Catching up is the name of the game currently.

 Over the weekend, I had fun sewing up a quick sample for our Schoolhouse Clutch Sew Along.  It's not too late to participate - just grab a copy of the pattern from your favorite retailer or from our shop and join in.

Since I posted about the sew along early in February and then went on hiatus with 24 hours afterwards (see February post...spent with family) we lost out on promoting this sew along.

BUT if you participate, I promise I have something fun just for you!  Send me a copy of your receipt showing me you purchased the Schoolhouse Clutch pattern and I'll send you the link for the private post on how to add an easy zippered pocket to the inside of the bonus mini-journal included in your pattern PLUS a few little design tidbits.  And there may be more...just saying.

Take a moment and say hello if you will...I always scratch my head in wonderment at the number of hits this blog gets vs. the number of comments that are left.  Hello?  I'm real, not a robot...and I'd love to connect with you and get to know what you are crafting up.  Introduce yourself...I'm so glad you are here.
