  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. I'm a nursing student and CNA who loves quilting, knitting, cross stitch, and the great outdoors. In my pre-scrubs life, I owned Real Photography, and you can still see my old wedding and portrait photography site here .

    I've created a map that shows links to our camping/hiking/general family fun review posts that you can find here. It's pretty much the coolest thing on this site. Thanks, Google!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

First day of school dress

It’s probably safe to say that I’m a little obsessed about the geranium dress pattern from Made by Rae.  This is my third geranium dress, and maybe my favorite.  I love this gardening fabric line from Dinara Mirtalipova! I think that adding piping to the dress is the most important step.  I use this tutorial. It has you use a 1 3/8″ wide strip.  If I need to put a seam in the fabric for the trim, I make sure the seams match up with the side seams of the dress.
