Hi!  I'm Emily, and I live in Charlotte.  I try to lead a handmade life, which you'll hopefully see in my blog: I quilt, knit, cross-stitch, sew, cook, and bake, and I've tried to garden but it turns out I have a black thumb.  I like to be creative everyday and I post my current projects to hopefully inspire you to be creative too.  My schnauzer, my tabby cats (gray and orange) and my husband occasionally make it into my posts, too.

I love fall, flowers, modern art, the South, beets, polka dots, mint and gray together, and Target.  I dislike seafood, lizards and frogs, very hoppy beers, and antique furniture.  I'm an animal lover and wish I could do more to help homeless cats and dogs.  I have a dream life where I live on a farm in the middle of nowhere but the truth is I'm too scared of the dark to ever do such a thing.  I sew and knit with the good stuff but don't mind if you don't.  My favorite food is macaroni and cheese (southern-style, please) and pulled pork with cake for dessert.
