If you would like an in depth melted review of any of these scents above in the current basket, please let me know and I will do it just for you. 

Summer is zipping by, but as it quickly passes it is bringing the much needed restoration and invigoration that I needed. I can feel my creativity flowing back from the deep ebb, almost drought, it was in these past several months. My old Singer has been getting much love from me. My Bible has too. And so have my knives, cutting board and hand mixer. My weights and tennis shoes. My yoga pants have actually been used to yoga. I mean, how great is that?! Weight and worries drop away like unwanted bricks that I did not even realize were pressing me down. 

I am currently working on a strip quilt, a square scrap quilt I have been sewing for several years, a small Liberty of London lap quilt, a passport cover tutorial, a huge embroidery hoop display for our bedroom, and I have been itching to use my beloved Liberty of London fabric stash to sew a dress for myself. I am thinking like the kind where you take a shirt top and sew a waistband and skirt onto it. Something comfy but kind of cute. 

I hope the summer has been bringing you renewal too. And not too much heat and humidity. Any trips or crafts or projects going on in your neck of the woods?


  1. What does American cream smell like? Is it somewhat perfume-y? I keep thinking it is like a vanilla cream version of pink sugar.....

    1. It is very perfumy. Vanilla musk and powdery strawberry and orange. It is definitely not for everyone but I adore it. A clean and pretty scent. Mixing it with marshmallow and pink makes it creamy and sweeter. :-)
