Quilting Again

After a long hiatus I have “churned” out some quilts. One inspired me so much that I did it in an afternoon though I am not fully finished quilting it. I do however have some pictures of my recently finished projects to share: One is a baby quilt in blues, greens and grays inspired by […]

I am back…for a bit :-)

Well…I have been gone for a while. First….my dad had liver transplant surgery. Then…I got sick (bad allergies + tiredness from helping mom/dad = sick) So…though I have sort of worked on a bit of sewing nothing much has been accomplished in the past month—which includes absolutely no quilting. But as I spring (pun intended) […]

If however, you like me, are continually looking for ideas for men’s wear to sew for your husbands you might want to check […]

What a deal!

Oh…I am so excited! I got a new sewing machine this week and it is great! A few months ago I went to my sewing repair shop to see if they had a felling foot to go with another machine I own and they had two Elna Supermatics for sale (but no felling foot). I […]

Sew not quilting

Towards the end of this past week I received a tunic pattern I had ordered from Sew Liberated. I of course immediately dug into the project, measuring and deciding which size to use. The difference between the 2/4 and 6/8 is not very great, and being a tunic I chose the smaller size. Why? Because […]
