Winter Coats for the Kiddos

Wow, have I ever been neglecting this blog…  Hopefully you’re following me on Instagram because that seems like all I manage to have time to update these days… I’ve been trying to sew as much as I can, but my free time is short.  Working outside the home part-time, as well as being a full-time […]
