Hello! I'm Catherine and I blog over at cathgrace. I like to think of myself as a general maker, but my heart always returns to sewing as my first great love. I have sewn almost daily since I was a little girl, and have a lovely Gramma and Mom in my sewing lineage. (Every time I sew anything, I imagine my Gramma tunelessly whistling next to me, a pin clutched in her mouth, sewing with the most beautiful little stitches; or my mom sitting across a quilt frame from me, chatting and sewing our love into a baby blanket.)
In my real life I am a wife to an Air Force Husband, living in S. Korea with our 2 children. I have the greatest passion for children's clothes and filling a gap in my daughter's wardrobe since commercial clothing companies seem to have 2 options for girls her age and size (baby or sexy teen), neither of which is appropriate for a vivacious and sweet, not so little girl. (Okay, I'm going to go ahead and say it, sexy teen isn't appropriate for ANYONE!) I am heavily inspired by a Bohemian feel, combined with the idea of classical, real looking children's clothes that can stand a good wash, and be worn over and over again without falling apart (which is more than can be said for lots of store bought clothes!) I am so excited to be on Project Run and Play, and being in the company of such lovely ladies is going to be so fun and inspirational! Thanks for having me!!!
