#emersoncroppants in Hawaii ❤️❤️❤️

Aloha 🤙

Schools out for Summer! 💃🏼💃🏼 and This dress is the perfect way to welcome Summer vacay!! Just another #catarinadress by @seamworkmag - after making the first I knew I had to make another one. ✂️❤️✂️

✂️✂️ freshwater dress by @sewinginnomansland ✂️✂️ I don’t think this pattern is for sale anymore, but the out and about dress by @sewcaroline is with a similar silhouette. Fabric is @artgalleryfabrics frutteria bleu in knit. I tried a different method for gathering knit fabrics using fold over elastic, and HATED it. Totally ruined the fullness of the skirt and I am honestly not sure how much I will wear this dress. (Not by recommendation of the pattern instructions mind you, just a tutorial I found on the web and wanted to try for gathering knit fabrics). Kind of a disappointment, but the pattern is still💯, a great basic that I will continue to make as every Summer rolls around ❤️. Just wish I hadn’t wasted this fabric on trying a new technique tutorial 😭😭😭.

These words have stuck in my Spirit all week. I have always heard of salt and light as one of those biblical word combos- but Colossians 4:6 talks about grace and salt. “Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” Yesssss!!! It is one of those verses that has just jumped off the page at me, and become a part of my morning prayer requests. Grace - God’s love and power that we can’t earn but are given it freely. May we remember to show that same grace to people we encounter today. But May it be seasoned with salt. Salt - the truth found in the Word of God. May our conversations be seasoned with grace AND salt. Love and truth. Power and truth. GRACE AND TRUTH. May it guide all that we do and say so that we will know how to answer everyone. Amen and amen. God is so good, and His Word is so powerfully alive. I have found myself in so many conversations this week in which I simply didn’t know how to respond. People battling situations that are beyond my level of understanding - and while you want to help them any way you can - it is quite simply beyond you. I have drawn on this verse, with the help of the Holy Spirit, all week.

Kimmy Kimmy bo Bimmy Banana Fanna Fo Fimmy Me My Mo Mimmy K 👏🏻 I 👏🏻 M 👏🏻 M 👏🏻 Y . What can I say, I am on a @seamworkmag sewing kick. Might or might not be because I had like 21 credits pile up, and I suddenly had a pattern splurge to use my stockpiled credits. This dress did not disappoint. And it looks fab with my hot pink @paylessshoesource shoes. 🙌🏻 yessssss 🙌🏻

I hate snakes. Machete karate chop head type of hate. That being said, I needed this photo of @jgabbott and I at the #virginiazoo #zootodo2018 in the infamous white frame - since it was one of my fave photos that we took at last years event! We got heckled by an Amy Schumer lookalike - but I still love it. Because that is my man, my love, and after 13 years - we are still shining bright. This is what teenage love looks like. Happy 13 years of marriage baby ❤️❤️

Instead of being upset that I let yet another #memademay2018 slip by without participating, I am going to rejoice in the fact that I ACTUALLY GOT TO SEW SOMETHING YESTERDAY 🎉🎉🎉!!! It had been like 3+ weeks in which life has kept me from my machine, yesterday was like a balm to my soul. ❤️ Absolutely loving my new #catarinadress from @seamworkmag in @artgalleryfabrics floralia fusion rayon challis stenciled petals navy blue ✂️😍✂️ #mmmay18 -> SUMMER, I’M COMING FOR YOU!

Just some of my life’s biggest blessings right here ❤️❤️❤️ Happy Mother’s Day

Something so silly - but this is a lesson I sadly had to learn over and over again. I think it has finally sunk in, after one too many hand crafted outfits shrinking after the first wear. Don’t cut corners, always prewash!! It’s worth the extra two hour wait to start sewing!!! #sewingbasics #worththewait

While this slouchy cardi will probably be off in about an hour thanks to ☀️☀️☀️😍. It’s on now, and that counts!! #memademay #mmm18 #memademay18 - get the diy for the cardi on the blog! Search ‘slouchy cardi’ - I’ve made 3, and wear them all spring / summer long ❤️❤️❤️.

True to my word - I have since made 2 more of these pants - love them so much! Bummed that I forgot to post yesterday, considering I actually did wear something handmade for #memademay (one of my slouchy cardis paired with a swing dress and baseball cap!)! But today marks 2 days in a row...I am in a roll 😂😂. Who knows. Maybe this will be the first #memademay2018 that I actually keep up with 💙💙💙 ✂️ Pattern: #emersoncroppants @truebias ✂️ Fabric: rayon challis in Navy from @fabricdotcom #mmm18
