lydiahawkinsheadshotHello!  I’m Lydia, and I love to sew! Quilts, bags, pillows, clothing, accessories, you name it!  My husband and I live in Georgia with our two children.  I’m a Spanish teacher by trade, but left teaching to stay at home with my babies.  We have a two year old son, Desmond and a newborn daughter, Kate.
