Hi there!  I have a bunch more table runners to share with you!  Up first is one I made for my mom.

Hi there!  I hope you had a great weekend.  My sewing time last week was – ZERO – and I used the weekend to make up for that…at least a little!  Do you look at stuff and think “I could make that!” and then never do?  Or take months to finally figure it out?  I […]

Checking this project off my list feels SO good!   Our lamp is still trying to find the right home, since rearranging everything.  We did have a table lamp, but, one little boy accidentally trashed the shade….upFabrics are Amy Butler, the home decor fabrics have such a nice feel to them.  Slightly more $$ but worth […]

One of Ella’s teachers is expecting a new baby boy, and has a 2 year old little girl at home.  When I learned this I started thinking about what I could do/make for the new babe!  Unfortunately, I’ve had zero time for extra quilt projects, so I put it on the back burner in my […]

I spent Wednesday – sewing! I didn’t do any dishes, laundry or vacuuming until after 4:30pm! Yeah, the place was a disaster between the kids and all my threads, but I was smiling. As has happened often, I had an idea for a bag that was keeping me awake, needing to be […]
