I made a flat iron carrier today. It is made with Insulbright so it will not burn if it is hot. It was fun and I plan on making more for the craft fairs. It will also make some great Christmas gifts for the Granddaughters. 2 of them travel racing BMX bikes and as you know, teenagers HAVE to have their hair just right and … Continue reading Flat Iron Carrier
While on vacation we went to several (LOTS really) National Parks. Little did I know they sold these nice printed fabric pictures for quilts. I laid them on on my design wall trying to decide on a quilt. On my next vacation I will save about $150.00 and print off some of my pictures. I can use that money on fabric. On Monday I asked … Continue reading What to do with these?

If I am chosen it will be a murder trial lasting about a week. On the way home I got a call from my sewing machine man … Continue reading Wednesday Wonders

Woke up this morning to a beautiful day. Sun shinning, squirrels playing chase around the large oak outside my sewing room window. What can make a day much better. Yesterday we went to a quilt show in here in town. The quilts were pretty; although there were only a few that caught my eye. I tend to go towards the more unusual quilts. The choice … Continue reading Sunny Sunday
