Hi, there. I’m Michelle. By day, I chase after a six-year-old and a seven-year-old, mostly trying to convince them to use their powers for good, not evil. At night and in my rare moments of quiet and calm, I sew. For me. For sanity.

After a decade-plus of sewing bags and curtains and pillow covers, I’ve started quilting. This is where I share my triumphs—and tribulations—at my sewing machine.
