  • 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!

geranium dress pattern review | out to sea sarah jane dress

I have a new favorite summer pattern for Ellie! The Geranium dress by Made by Rae is so cute and easy I already have a shorter top version for her in the works.  The fabrics are both Out to Sea from Sarah Jane since I am on an Out to Sea roll this month.  (I feel like once I start cutting into a hoarded fabric line it gets a lot easier!)

We had a very quick photo session on the way out the door to church this morning (apparently with all of the Saturday nights I worked and Sunday mornings they were going to Mass without me they came up with a new term for being almost late to church:  “Mommy Church”).  So the pictures don’t do the dress justice, but I love the way it came together!
