One small hiccup in my move.  While writing this, all my past comments are g o n e!  Totally missing – I think I read that they may slowly make the move, but I was expecting all those comments (with numbers!) to be there when I was ready to select a winner for the Burgundy […]

I have two quilts due in a six weeks, but I’ve been promising dresses to my girls!  So my goal for this week has been to cut and start (maybe finish) three dresses! I am a sucker for patterns when Joann’s has them for $1 – we just happened to be there on one of […]

Do you do this?

I have to wear slippers or some sort of shoe around the house.  Usually not the same one I’ve been wearing outside, especially this time of year.   They help my back from hurting, as I am on my feet non-stop, and keep my toes from freezing off!  I take off my right shoe when sewing, […]

are you willing to take a seam out and re-sew it? As I sat at my machine taking a seam out for the third time today, I got to thinking – am I the only one that does this? I’m guessing probably not, but I have referred to myself as “anal Amy” on […]

Bookmarks Again

By |November 1st, 2008|sewing|13 Comments

The box of scraps that Kristina sent me – has been taunting me! I am not quite ready to start into another quilt top, and a quick finish sounded nice. So I auditioned scraps for bookmarks! 3 of the 4 will end up in my etsy shop once I take individual pictures […]

Well, here’s the extent of my creative endeavors for today! A bink connector for my little man. As we started walking a lot in the spring, Owen began tossing his bink right out of the stroller. We even found one the next day one time! I have not had much […]

It is amazing what a little time at the machine will do for me. I do still need a nap but at least there’s a bit of a smile with me now – sorry to be a downer earlier=) Look at the hem on this nightgown! I got this machine a few months […]
