I've been working behind the scenes here to figure out youtube and how to upload video from our slightly outdated video camera. Since I've been blogging I have become more and more techy - go figure!There's 4 third grade classes, so the teacher's were busy coordinating 80-90 students - they look like a lot more [...]

Thanks to all of you that took the time to tell me about your ironing habits! It seems that most press their seams in one direction with a couple of exceptions. Within a couple of hours of posting and getting the first bit of feedback, I decided to check into my books that I first [...]

Question for you —

Which way do you press your seams while quilting? I put up a poll for the next week on the left side - because I'm curious. I learned to sew garments first (20 years ago) and have had a hard time changing my thinking about ironing - but I'm starting to see the light in [...]

A Lesson in Patience

By |February 23rd, 2009|bag|25 Comments

This past week I've been waiting. Not all that patiently I might add - you could ask Joe, he's a good sport - thankfully :) To ease my impatience I set to work to make a new bag for myself! There's nothing like a new bag, to hopefully welcome spring sooner than later. . . [...]

I've had a bit of a lucky streak again lately! Within days of each other I had won a pile of Farbenmix patterns from Fabric Hound and a pile of charms from Angela! These patterns may be the ticket to get me to sew clothing for my girls again. The last thing I made for [...]
