This blog is about to undergo a few changes. I have another blog, A Day In 1862, in which I expound on and show off my 1860s clothing creations, and this blog was *supposed* to be a place for me to expound on and show off my non-1860s self. But life has happened and thrown all my plans asunder, and from the rubble I'm making new plans. I've had to give up my job as a marketing "person" for the company I was working for in DFW, and now I find myself enjoying home life with my little girl and husband. However...there is apparently someone inside me who *insists* on being busy. This "busy-ness" has turned into an endeavor to create 1860s sewing patterns for children, and the Thistle & Lilly name just...well...it worked for the pattern line!
So I'm switching blogs. Thistle & Lilly is officially my new pattern brand, and this will be the blog home for the projects surrounding them. I'm rather excited. I already have 3 freebie patterns (although they're being formatted as an e-pattern right now), and I'm working on a shoe-making tutorial.
I don't know what will become of my 1862 blog. I hope my followers there will follow me over here! Perhaps I'll keep it open for my grown-up 1860s creations and leave this one specifically for children...until life happens again, that is.
So if you're seeing this blog post and you're a follower of my 1862 blog -- please follow me here!
Much love and here's to a lovely Thanksgiving to all!
