At thimble pie, you will find sewing and craft projects and tips, product and book reviews, my own line of sewing patterns, low carb / ketogenic recipes, and some other bits about cultivating a life filled with happiness. I hope that something here will resonate with your interests, goals or inspirations, and that you’ll let me know when it does! I love to meet new people, share project notes, and learn new ways to do all the things better. 

Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.
Theodore Roosevelt, September 7, 1903

I started sewing in college, but didn’t fully embrace it until I was a SAHM of 3 small people and desperate for a creative outlet. I started blogging in 2006, opened a handmade accessories Etsy shop in 2008, then started a second shop for indie sewing patterns in 2009. My curiosity for fabric, construction, and techniques is fully out of control at this point, but I accept that. I still sell handcrafted accessories at TheJuneBride, focusing on wholesale accounts, and currently offer my own sewing patterns (thimble pie patterns) right here
