Hi, there! I’m so glad that you found your way over to my little internet home. My name is Bonnie. I love sewing! I also love sharing my love of sewing. I hope you’ll find an abundance of inspiration here, along with some tips and tricks that will help you improve your sewing skills!
When I’m not sewing, I’m busy with a houseful of incredible little people … and some that are not so little anymore! I’m currently mom to ten, including three grown-ups and four children who we’re loving while they navigate their way through the foster care system. At home right now, we have ages 19, 17, 12, 11, 10, 7, 3 and 2! Thankfully, my mom lives here, too, and she’s an incredible help with all the daily running here and there that goes on in this household. I’m also “GiGi” to two, a 5-year-old granddaughter and a 1-year-old grandson. Oh, and I’m married to a wonderful husband, Ray, who does an amazing job of supporting us all in everything that we do!
One of our little ones has a complex medical condition, so in addition to everything else, we spend quite a bit of time in and out of medical appointments, therapy offices and hospital rooms. She’s an amazing little girl, and I hope to have the freedom to share more about her in the years to come!
I love Jesus, coffee, dark chocolate, science fiction, babies, coffee, homeschooling, photography, and, um, coffee.
For about a decade, I designed and sold sewing patterns as the owner of Fishsticks Designs. I’ve had to step away from that for now because of how short my time is, but you can still find some of my PDF patterns by clicking the PATTERNS link above.
