1. Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I am an Austin-based blogger who loves all things delightfully domestic. Sewing, gardening, crafting, cooking, and anything DIY. Spending time with my hubby, our kids and their families is about as good as it gets.

2. What are your favorite projects to design?
I really love designing aprons, but I also want to do some classic children’s clothes and simple garments for women.

3. What is your favorite thing you have made for yourself? For someone else?
I have a saying, “Aprons make great gifts!” And, it is true, I love making a unique apron and giving it away. By far, my biggest seller on YCMT is the Tutu Tote Trio. I designed the pattern for the Tutu Tote Trio after my sister called and described the bag over the phone. Her daughter wanted one for the first day of kindergarten.

4. What is your favorite season/holiday to decorate for?
I like simplicity and don’t do a lot of seasonal decorating. Instead, my favorite way to bring in something for a season or holiday is to start in my garden and bring the outdoors inside.

5. Any other interests or hobbies?
Rabid gardener with a love of native plants and organic veggies. I usually have a farmer’s tan and a disgusting manicure. When I’m not scratching in the dirt, I am trying to convert classic recipes into gluten-free options.

6. Do you have a favorite quote?
“Just because you can doesn’t mean you should!” Nowhere is this more evident than at a quilt show.
