Happy Wednesday! I am happy to announce that Sam and I have booked a vacation at the end of March and I am starting my vacation sewing early! It is also going to give me a jumpstart on summer sewing because we are going to Thailand! I can’t wait to get started with my me-made vacation plans. Any advice on dressing for Thailand? I am all ears!
