i70Swap Project Update: What I Made

The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. Yep. My plan for the messenger bag went awry. I'm really disappointed that it didn't work out but I'll try that pattern again when I have some free time. What I wound up doing instead was simply winging it. My end...

Recipe: Fresh Ricotta

It has been a while since I've posted. I've been occupied with another web project. (Check out www.HungryInTopeka.com, if you're so inclined. It is about the local/independent food scene here in Topeka, featuring a directory, an events calendar and a blog.) Anyhoo......

Fat Quarter Shop Sew Sampler – April 2016

I love myself some mailbox goodies. When I saw that Fat Quarter Shop was going to start doing a monthly curated sampler box, I thought I'd get in on the action. (More info on their site!) The box runs  $24.95/month + shipping. Seems like a reasonable amount to spend...
