Grow Your Blog

Thanks to Vicki for hosting the Grow Your Blog blog hop again this year.

2 Bags Full

If you already know me and want a chance to find some more great blogs, click over to check out the big list of participants.
For those of you visiting for the first time, my name is Mary Ann and welcome to my little corner of the internet.
This is me doing one of my favorite things. I love making things, especially with fabric and thread and I really enjoy sharing the things I make here on the blog. Sometimes I also talk a bit about the homesteading side of things. Besides my time spent raising my little people and sewing, I also keep chickens and bees and enjoy gardening, preserving food, and cooking.

In the last year, I have done lots of making and been able to find the time to share at least a little of it. I love to sew kid clothes and quilts and I love to make new things out of treasures dug out of the thrift store clearance bins. Also, this year I got a Silhouette Cameo machine so I have been having fun finding ways to use that toy as well!
You can see a few of the things I have been up to here below:
Bottoms Up pants testing
Zippy Keepers Pattern testing
Plum Princess Purse and Gloves testing
A Quilt for a friend

Right now, I am in a mad rush to sew lots of cute Disney clothes for the kiddos before our upcoming trip to WDW. Later on this year, I have plans to make a quilt for my nephew who is graduating from high school, sew up some spring clothes for my kids, and work up my nerve to start sewing for myself as well. I hope you stick around or come back later when I can share all of my Disney creations as well as show you the other things I make this spring! Just click the buttons on the sidebar to follow me with Bloglovin or feedly as well.
Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Hi Mary Ann! I am one of the volunteer greeters from Vicki’s GYB 2015 and I’m so pleased to have found your corner of Blogland 🙂 When I see you talented young Mums doing so much with your families AND sharing online, it’s makes me wish I’d been able to do that when mine were small. OK, I probably wouldn’t have been that organized LOL. Anyway, I’ve enjoyed scrolling through your adorable photos and family stories, and plan to return and take in more. Following via Bloglovin 🙂

  2. Hello Mary Ann. First time visitor via GYB. Glad I’ve stopped by because I like what you do. I am not following. Good luck with your goals and have fun at WDW 🙂

  3. Just popping by from the Grow Your Blog event. I’ve been browsing back through some of your posts. Your children are adorable and make wonderful models for the clothes you sew for them. Our children are all grown now but I sewed a lot of clothes for them when they were little. I’ve started following you on bloglovin.

  4. Hello Mary Anne. Sending you kind regards from Germany. I started to follow you via wordpress… I like the title of your blog – it sounds (I suppose it shall sound like that) a little bit like “little house in the prairie” – when I was a child I loved watching this series (and still do!). I’m totally crazy about wool – but at the moment I enjoy sewing and quilting a lot.

  5. Mary Ann, it looks like you make a happy home for your family. I also sewed for my five kiddos while they grew, but now they tend to like my ‘accessories’ more than clothes! I will be looking forward to more of your posts. Following through Bloglovin’.
