Breaking a Losing Streak

Posted by Susan Liane, The Smuggler's Daughter on 7/30/2014 to Sewing Projects
Have you ever gone through a period when nothing you sew turns out right? Well, I have been going through just such a period recently. I hated everything I sewed last month.

Yep, you guessed it - stay home and sew.
