catching up

It's been far too long since my last post! Just to recap on what's happened in the last month: my blog turned 1 year old (woo-hoo!), I spent two weeks with my awesome youth group on a missions trip traveling to Mexico, building two houses for poor families there and traveling back (that was a really amazing trip!), and I've been recovering from a bad cold.  That's my last month or so in a nutshell. :)

I haven't had much time for sewing lately because of all my schoolwork! But as soon as I have more spare time, I have plans for skirts, shirts, shorts, dresses, etc... I'm really looking forward to the next season of Project sewn! I love looking through the outfits people come up with, and I usually sew along as well.

The Mexico trip was a truly awesome experience that I'm really glad I could have. We visited an area where there was a lot of poverty, and seeing that made me all the more grateful for what I have in Canada. Building the houses was fun and rewarding, and the whole trip was something I'll never forget! Here are a couple pictures I took on the trip to give you a small taste of what it was like:

I hope you all have a lovely Easter weekend! If you haven't heard Owl City's beautiful rendition of In Christ Alone, you should listen to it now. :) I'll be going to the Easter sunrise service with my youth group (6am!), getting together with family and friends, and enjoying the gorgeous spring weather and flowers popping up everywhere. 


  1. Oh my goodness those pictures are B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L. They totally capture the beauty of Mexico, the little moments of awe. Oh my gosh I'm gonna cry I want to go back.

    1. Thank you! That's what I was going for. :) Same here.
