    Happiness Is…

    THIS: My husband snapped this photo of my daughter and I sewing together late the other night. It’s pretty real. As in: unglamorous and messy, but it makes me so happy to be able to spend time with her this way! While I’m working on my Hummingbird No.2 hexie quilt, my daughter, is working on her first […]
