Happy Birthday to Marin!

©Lesley Breen Withrow

Today is my daughter's 5th birthday! We had a great party for her over the weekend with family and friends. She has been enjoying eating the leftover cake and playing with her presents the last few days. It's hard to believe that it's been 5 years since my little girl was born. But I am happy to say that I haven't missed a moment and am looking forward to many more. Love you, Marin!

Philosophy Friday

I love Friday's, philosophy and quotes that inspire. So here's my first Philosophy Friday. Enjoy!

-To teach how to live with uncertainty, yet without being paralyzed by hesitation, is perhaps the chief thing that philosophy can do.  ~Bertrand Russell

Circle Patterns

I got re-inspired to create more patterns the other day while visiting a local sewing store with my mom. I loved seeing all the fabrics and patterns and COLORS! So fun and beautiful. Here's a fun pattern I recently made of some circles with different textures and patterns.

Snail Pattern

Here's a snippet of a repeat pattern I created a little while ago containing these cute little snails, bugs, flowers and leaves. I have been getting back into sewing again, something I enjoyed to do as a kid. I would love to see these patterns as a kids fabric someday!
