I’m feeling a bit scattered! I have lots of things that NEED to get done and a few that I really want to get done – isn’t that how it usually goes? I had a couple of hours to myself Friday evening and decided to cut into some fabric for this bag –
The fabrics are Amy Butler Love, and I love it! Sadly my machine has been overused in the last 6 months, and needs a tune-up. I have no problem piecing, but multiple layers of fabric and interfacing – not happening. So that’s going back on the bottom of the list, until I can part with my machine long enough to have it serviced. Just imagine no pins holding the lining in place and that polka dot strap attached on the sides :)
This is the big news in the … Read More »
Hi there! I am excited to introduce Jen from Reannalily Designs to you! I asked Jen to share a little about herself –
I’m Jen and I’ve been sewing for people for years. I have traveled all over the world gathering inspiration and ideas for my designs and patterns. From Korea, and China, Japan, to North America, England and France, I have found many cultural and historical elements to guide my interest and creativity. And LOTS of sewing with military uniforms. In fact, through that- I developed my Seamingly Accurateseam guide. The seam guide was released at the Houston Quilt Market in2008. It has had a great response from the sewing community andreplaces the need for sharpie or tape on your sewing machine. TheSeamingly Accurate guide is distributed by QuiltWoman.com And since restarting the “word of mouth” sewing business istricky with every military … Read More »
Hi there! I’ve been so glad to hear from so many of you, making the move with me easily here :) I love to know that this space is part of your morning/daily routines, and thanks for the profile pic love! I had my hair cut and colored by a professional. A nice treat and I had to document it!
Last week I went to a guild meeting to share my quilts – I had fun talking with fellow quilters, and meeting a blog friend! Emily invited me to share a while back, thankfully it worked out after my deadline, unfortunately Joe was called for Jury Duty the very same day! Not wanting to bail on Emily, I packed up the kids and made the drive – I’m so glad I did too!
Emily put together this sweet basket of goodies … Read More »

- Joe called me crazy – I was sketching a new design already! My creative juices are flowing – I can’t help it :) Don’t tell him about the three more in my head.
- My house needs a deep clean. I like to purge papers and whatnot, every other day or so. The piles are deep – it’s time to purge! and the floors are sad. I figure little by little I will make my way through the house this week. After I get my energy levels back … Read More »
