Hi! My name is Rasa and I live in the South Loop of Chicago with my husband Dainius, son Kajus (1 year old), and our yorkie poo Zeus. I am a country/cowgirl at heart that has learned to appreciate and love the city of Chicago.
I love sewing anything and everything.......quilts, pillows, bags, dresses, and anything else that can be colorful and fun! I enjoy painting my own fabrics either by hand, block printing, or using wax. (Shopping for cute and colorful fabrics is fun too!)
I love to travel (especially to warm climates!) and spend as much time as possible outdoors. I find much of my inspiration from my travels, walks through Chicago, and from nature. My dream is to travel to Bali and visit where all the beautiful batiks I love are made.
Sewing and Smiling is my place to share my passion for textiles and everything that makes life colorful and fun!
