Sew. Sew. Sew.

All I do is sew. sew. sew.

No matter what. what. what.

I forgot to mention head over to my Sew Yup’ik facebook page for a 241 tote bag giveaway!

I have been living NON-stop on my sewing machine trying to bust out as many qaspeqs, bags, cup cozies, fish bags, and key fobs as quickly as I can!

The Kenai River Festival starts tomorrow and is all weekend long of music, food, beer garden, craft booths and much more!

And trying to gather spruce tips because it is almost too late to pick them. This evening I am going to try and make cottonwood salve with the help of some awesome ladies.

I will share the process and photos!

Happy Thursday!

I hope you are having a wonderful day!

You are loved!

You are awesome!

And keep on keeping on!

Qaspeq Fun

Its been a busy month of April! Sheesh its almost May time flies when you are having a BLAST 🙂

I have been on a motivated sewing binge and have been able to whip through orders. Thankfully all my customers are patient with me and I am forever grateful to all of them.

It is also a busy month of harvesting cottonwood buds. Cottonwood bud salve and oil is really good for achy muscles and joints. I have been trying to gather a jar a day because I love sharing with those who cant go out and pick them.

We also tried our luck with fishing. We skunked out and caught a cod and a flounder but sent them back to the ocean floor. A friend of ours caught two halibut and I deskinned them. I need to clean them and tan them and hopefully can get back in the groove of fish skin sewing.

And I finally brought home my big beautiful machine and put away my trusty Brother machine for a rainy day. It has been soooo ahhhhmazing to be able to sew on a super duper nice machine 🙂 maybe that’s where I found my motivation!

Happy Days to all of you and summer is right around the corner!
