Do I have better things to do than go on a rant about the Early Spring pattern release from Simplicity? Of course I do, but is that gonna stop me? Nope. Because I just looked through the entire collection and counted eight apron patterns. Yes. You read that correctly. Eight. Apron. Patterns. WTF? Why?! There … Continue reading Simplicity’s Early Spring 2019 Pattern Release: WTF is with all the aprons?!
Awhile back I bought two Ohhh Lulu sewing patterns so I could make myself some lovely vintage inspired undergarments. I was so excited the day I bought the first one, Sarah's high waist Ava panties, that I went straight out and bought supplies at Fabricland, printed the pattern, prepped the pattern and fabric and got … Continue reading In The Pink Room Mini Review
Wow, it feels like forever since I last posted! There's been a lot going on, including a medical scare that temporarily put a halt to all my glorious doll making plans for a week or so (luckily the medical stuff ended up being nothing as scary as the doctor originally thought, but will involve ongoing … Continue reading Making Little Women, Part 4: Progress
The saga of the Little Women dolls continues! Since completing the mock up of the Beth March doll (which I posted about here and here) I decided to dive in and try making Jo, since I'm pretty sure every single one of my sisters would prefer a Jo doll. Yesterday I finished sewing and stuffing … Continue reading Making Little Women, Part 3: Mistakes Happen
In my last post I wrote about the Little Women dolls I'm making for my sisters this Christmas and shared with you all the very bald mock up I had made of Beth March. Well, I'm happy to report that she finally has hair! YAY! (Click to enlarge images) I'm still learning how to do … Continue reading Making Little Women Part 2, and lululalaine Review!
Wow, I can't believe how long it's been since I last posted! The last few weeks have been incredibly stressful, but the upside of all the stress is that in my down time, I've been doing a lot of sewing to help myself relax. While I have been making myself some clothes, my favourite project … Continue reading Making Little Women (and little clothes!): eVINTAGEpatterns Review
1963's The Haunting, (based on the 1959 novel by the brilliant Shirley Jackson,) is my favourite horror movie of all time - and it actually is one I have re-watched in the last year or so (I can honestly say it left me just as terrified as it always did when I watched it as … Continue reading The Films That Haunt Us: The Haunting (1963)
Yesterday I wrote about one of the films I saw in childhood that terrifies me to this day, to the point where I just can't bring myself to re-watch it as an adult. Today I thought I would share another with you. The 1961 film, The Innocents, starring Deborah Kerr, was based on the novella … Continue reading The Films That Haunt Us: The Innocents, (1961)
With Halloween mere days away, I sat down this morning to make a list of some of the scariest horror movies I've ever seen. Unsurprisingly, the films that have had the most enormous effect on me are the ones watched in early childhood. These are films my sisters and I used to watch over and … Continue reading The Films That Haunt Us: The Woman in Black (1989)
After being sick with the stomach flu all last week and then coming down with bronchitis, I decided to take today to get a few important health related things done (blood work, picking up a prescription for said bronchitis and also getting a flu shot while I was at it), but in between that medical … Continue reading Self Care Days…
