On the Hunt


I’ve been married for 11 years and have never had the opportunity to hang out with just my mom and my husband’s step-mom.  I live in Utah (currently), my mom is a Minnesota resident, and my husband’s step-mom calls Texas home.  So we aren’t often in the same place and then if that happens escaping my five kids is usually our other obstacle.  The stars aligned recently and I got to spend the day with them.  I commandeered the agenda and we set about hunting for fabric stores in Utah.  I was delightfully surprised by a couple and found at least two projects that I’ll reveal in the coming months.  Hopefully they don’t end up on Flop Friday, but that’s half the fun.

Much to my delight, I found a store in downtown Salt Lake that reminded me of my fav childhood fabric stores Mill End Textiles and S. R. Harris.

Both were warehouses and held a treasure trove of rems and random fabrics that inspired the imagination.  I was so delighted.  I only bought one thing but I’ll be back soon!  The store was called Design Company Fabrics.

I'm a mom to five, a wife to one and love sewing. I learned when I was a little girl but returned to it in full force in the last couple of years. The process of creating things keeps me sane. I set a lofty goal for myself, one project a week for a year. I'm four months in and it's awesome. I'm amazed at how much I've learned and improved. Set a goal to learn something new and devote weekly time to it. You will be amazed at the results.
