A rabbit hole

I do live just down the road from a few rabbits so it’s entirely possible that I did fall in one of their homes. But no, that’s not the kind of rabbit hole I found.

It all started with an innocent enough comment. Really it was but then it became more. Oh no, this rabbit hole is potentially addictive and costly.

This one is a blog hosted by two sisters; clothing and pattern designers. Such cute styles but that alone wouldn’t win me over. I downloaded a free pattern, which itself was easy to do. Then I searched for the tutorial, again easy. The final winning point though was how logical and simplistic the actual writing style was with good material choices for the photos. It perhaps wouldn’t work for a true newbie to sewing clothes but I was ok with the things that were implied and not stated.

Our last purchased downloaded pattern came with a 39 page tutorial that was convoluted with crappy photos. Yes 39 single pages printed. The addendum for the alternate style was another 20 pages. Insane.

So these two sisters at Shwin and Shwin Company nailed it in my opinion. Tons of great patterns, some free and some for a reasonable rate with good tutorials. What’s really top notch awesome is that they have not forgotten boys and have a whole line developed for them as well.

The issue will be not going too crazy but both momma and I see something and have all these ideas rolling around in our head. The possibles seem endless! Did I mention they have quilt patterns and stuffed animals??

If I go MIA please come pull me out of the rabbit hole aka the attic space in a week or so! You may need to send hounds to find me for the mounds of paper and fabric!



I have had a love of the written word for my entire life. It's no surprise that eventually I found a platform where I could write. It's random; sometimes funny, occasionally sad, maybe even at times from anger and I lean towards creative photography and hands on crafts. I have a few blogs that high light these interests.

    1. I cleaned up the last cupboard in the rabbit hole this afternoon so I’m now ready to do cards, scrapbooks and generalized paper stuff. So glad to get the whole space organized. Ready for some serious creative time now!
