Sampler blocks and such...

I started sewing some blocks together from my new Sampler Quilt pattern and can I just say it was so H A R D!! It takes a lot of unpicking and if you don't get the measurements just right they will not line up. It is very time consuming. I have 28 more blocks to go!

Moving on to some holiday stitchery...
And here is another planner sleave from my book "One Yard Wonders"

And then I had some fabric sewn in strips from a while ago and figure I should make something out of it so I made this scrap bag. It catches all the scrap fabric so that I can keep it off the carpet.

Thanks for looking! Check out the other Sew n' Tells on AmyLouwho's Blog

  2. Lovely finishes this week. My first quilt was a sampler quilt and I remember it was hard to get some of the blocks all perfect but I learnt so much making that quilt so it was worth all the effort. Love the fabrics you've used on the scrap bag and that valentine picture is adorable!

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy.

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
