I did it!

I saw this quilt and the quilt show that was absolutely amazing! I wish I had a pix of it. It is called Stars around Town and they are different blocks that have bridal shop, ice cream shop, train station etc. This is the first block I did cuz it was the easiest, it is the pet shop. Although its not perfect (cat only has one ear-haha) I am still happy with it! I took my grandmother with me and we had so much fun. Look at all the fabrics I got.....

I love this one with the roses, it's like a 50's retro modern design...

What makes this fabrics even more great is that each piece was only $1.00! Usually they are about $2.30-$3.00 So you can see how much I actually saved by how many I got!

You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
