Sew N Tell Friday!

I am so frustrated, I don't ever have time to sew, this is all I had time to complete. 2 projects from my One Yard Wonders Book.
I made this with practice fabric cuz I didn't think I would be able to do it. I was so surprise at how easy the pattern was! If I knew it would be this cute I would have selected some of my cute fabric..anyway, I will have to make another one!

This is another reason why I couldn't get much done. I think I was in such a hurry and did not notice that the thread that was sittin' up in the holder winding around the wheel!! So this was another frustrating moment.

Then I made this "not so ugly car trash bag" (that is what they call it) but I added the extra pocket at the bottom for little stuff. I use it as an organizer for my coupons, store ads, antibacterial soap, etc. I tend to keep a lot of stuff in my car.

Thanks for looking! Check out the other Show N' Tells.


  1. Wow. Very cute. I am seeing quite a few projects popping up from the book. I might have to get one for myself.

  2. Oh dear that thread nest looks messy! Your dog is very cute, I am sure he will make some little person very happy!

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. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse.

Your First Sewing Machine!

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
