Sew good! 

Merry Christmas!This holiday was a quiet one for me. And I couldn’t have been more happy. My mom and I made Christmas dinner and just stayed home. No visitors and we didn’t have any obligations to go anywhere. It was a nice and welcome change from the normal hustling and bustling around in an attempt to see everyone and their cousin and their kids and…you get the picture. 
I received some really cool gifts, but my most favorite is my new sewing machine! 

  

  
I’ve been wanting a sewing machine  for awhile and was so ecstatic when I opened it! I bought some fabric and immediately dove into learning all about my machine and stitches. My go-to guide for all things has been Tilly and the Buttons. Her blog has a beginner’s sewing section that has been so great at teaching me the basics. 

I’ve already completed my first project. The Brigitte scarf, one of Tilly’s beginner patterns. 

   
  
It was pretty simple and turned out super cute! 
I ordered her book, Love at First Stitch, and can’t wait to get it and create some more. 
Are you a seamstress? Have any recommended beginner patterns? Or books/ blogs that can help a beginner? Let me know!! 

Hello

*peeps in*
Hello? Anyone out there?
It’s been a year since I regularly blogged around here. A year end roundup is the perfect way to catch Heart, Soph up on my going-ons.

2015 has been a great year for me. I washed my hands of  toxic “friends” , made new friends,  traveled-(L.A. And London), got a new(used) car, started working at a great school, Hearts and Hearts Vintage participated in two pop up shops, and I *finally* learned to swim!

 

 

You were alright, 2015! Here’s to an even better 2016!
