What I'm sewing...


Wow...this is crazy!! I haven't blogged for ages...but hopefully that's going to change. Because I have have missed every aspect of it...taking the photos, editing the photos, writing the posts and the sense of accomplishment that comes from sewing and documenting my projects.

This summer has been one of the craziest and one of the weirdest summer's I've ever had in my life! 
I won't go into detail but instead talk to you about what's on the sewing queue...
I'm super excited about what in the plans to sew! 

Are you ready to hear it???


It's a Lucille Ball inspired 8 piece wardrobe for TaMera for the Seasonal Sew Wardrobe on the Sew Alongs & Sewing Contests group!!

TaMera and I have been saving a ton of photos of Lucille's fashion and style! 
(Yes, we are planning on recreating the outfit and photo on the left as well as quite a few others!)

The first item, I'm working on now, is a necessary one in TaMera's closet...well fitting pants. 
Pants are one of the hardest things to get a good fit on and I decided if we were going to do this...I needed to at least get her one good pair of pants. 
...Just in case I run out of time for the deadline of the Seasonal Sew Wardrobe. 
The whole reason behind this is to get TaMera a collection of well fitting and very "her" styled garments so I just thought I better start with the hardest and most needed item!

I could show you some of the photos we saved and screenshots from Pinterest...but I don't have a rock solid sewing "plan" just Lucille Ball inspired garments that fit TaMera to a T. (...did you see what I did there?? ;) )

I should have an item to share with you in the next couple of days!

The Flowerbed Pajama's (SSW:SE) {Oywn & Esme from Everyday Style by Lotta Jansdotter}


I'm a terrible host.
We are into the second month of the Seasonal Sew Wardrobe and I'm just now sharing my first and second piece!
It is time to bring the hammer down and get moving!

I'm currently working on my 1940's pajamas, after which I'll move onto my Aunt's pajama's and hopefully get to my brother-in-law's pajamas before too long!

But you didn't come here to read about me falling behind and trying to get myself into gear...nope. You came to read about my "Flowerbed Pajamas" and all the details are below!

Gluten Free Pumpkin Cheesecake + Gluten Free Ginger Cookies!


If you like pumpkin pie, you will LOVE this cheesecake. It's the idea of pumpkin pie but improved so it's creamier, yummier and the perfect balance of cheesecake and pumpkin. I found the original recipe (almost already completely gluten free) here; http://blog.dollhousebakeshoppe.com/2011/11/mini-pumpkin-cheesecake-with-maple.html?m=1

I know pumpkin is traditionally a fall thing but this recipe is so good, it should be an all year round tradition. 

We start off with an (optional) gluten free ginger cookie crust. An extra step but so worth it! 

(PLUS, they're cookies so if you're not feeling the full on cheesecake, make a batch of these, with some pumpkin cream cheese filling for ginger-pumpkin whoopie pies! Here's a pumpkin cream cheese dip recipe to get you started; https://www.verybestbaking.com/recipes/28469/sweet-pumpkin-dip#sm.001rua8w7k58e1b104g1gznijtpy8

Or eat them with just some milk. They're good like that too.)
