      Aww, thanks! Of course, it hasn’t been that clean since I took the photo haha ;) It’s been a while since I posted anything, I’ve been busy with my shop and some upcoming travel plans. I’m actually working on some new things and once Stephen gets out from school we’ll be having a photo shoot day. How have you been, have any projects in the works?

      Wow, thanks so much! It’s great that girls are getting involved in sewing again…I don’t ever want it to be a lost art. Keep at it, and maybe I’ll see you around Portland sometime!

      I am SOOO happy you love it! It means a lot to me, this is the first time I have really offered my things to other people and I must admit, I was a bit nervous about it. You have SQUASHED those thinkings and now I’m just even more excited to keep at it! Enjoy :)

    i realize i’ve lost friends here all the time! i’m still catching up with the move to the new site :)

    i’m in love with your sewing room, and i totally get the perks of having parental space— growing up, i had my own little dance studio, complete with ballet barre & mirrors…

    Hi Hillary, Sorry for answering so late, I just finished my exams, but I have read your message when you posted it! I’m happy to hear from you and reading that you’re healthier already, I hope you will soon feel at your best again. Congratulations with your graduation and good luck at your greenhouse job! Is it a plant greenhouse or a greenhouse home for the elder? I wish you all the best and a lot of summer fun :)

    Hi Hillary. I’m sorry to hear you haven’t been well. I hope you feel 100% soon! Congrats on the job at the Greenhouse. That was actually my first job as well. I used to work for one up in CT for 3 years and then one up in MA for about 5 years. Hope all goes well with you and I also look forward to seeing more of your creations and images!!!

    Dear Hillary, I was thinking I haven’t seen your creations around here in a long time, which I noticed because I missed them! You have such a great style plus your pictures are great and you always look so lovely. So I was thinking of you and I’ve been watching your old creations :) But now I read that you have been ill! Are you doing fine by now? I’m sorry for you that you have been out for so long and I hope you will get better soon, please do take care!

    ok, so about a hundred people have said this, but i just love your creations! you’re so creative and talented (and all with a nosy cat and a 17-yr-old schedule!) :) That’s ok, I have a nosy 60-lb puppy… that’s fun. He especially likes when I’m cutting my fabric and it’s hanging over the edge of my somewhat small cutting table…
