Think Spring!

I was unable to get a lot done, I have spent this whole week in the hospital with my daughter, she had a cold + asthmas = the "Perfect Storm" So we spent a couple days in the hospital because she needed the oxygen, but while in there I was able to complete the binding around this fabulous table runner. Oh and she is doing very well now! This is made from the Verna charm pack by Kate Spain. Moda fabrics are my favorite...and I mixed some linen in it as well. This is my own pattern I made up by combining the squares and just randomly sewing them together.

Doesn't it just get you in the mood for spring?

Well, thanks for looking, make sure to check out the other show n tells on Amylouwho's blog.

Here is a close up of my Valentine Runner, pretty simple too! just sewn together a bunch of strips.

  7. Love it! Kate Spain is quite easily my newest favorite fabric designer :) Verna is TDF and her new upcoming fabrics? Yummmmm!!

  9. The runner is lovely. So sorry to hear about your daughter, glad she is better now. My son has the same trouble and hospital visits are the worst. He is on a medical trial with the hospital at the moment and has been so much better, but I really feel for you. ((((hugs))))

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. 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
