gettin' into trouble

So we are putting our house up for sell, we are ready to go bigger so that is why I have not been sewing lately, I am trying to keep every room clean and if you are a quilter you understand that sometimes your sewing room can look like a tornado came thru by the end of the day.
So all I have been doing is touch up painting, spackling, and just fixing things up...well my husband remodeled the bathroom and I was so impressed with the tools he kept pulling out of the garage, I never noticed them before and never realized all the tools we have! Of course every tool he pulled out...the wheels in my mind were turning..just thinking about what I could do with those tools!!! hAha. WELL THIS IS WHERE THE TROUBLE COMES IN....

(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.

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
