Show N' Tell Friday...

Just a little something I wanted to share with you...
I went to a garage sell and found this cute little doll cradle. It looked pretty rough .... so I gave it a little sanding a a nice coat of white paint

Then of course it needed a quilt...
This little quilt was just too simple to do. I love the fabric so I didn't want to cut it into little pieces but I'm dying to make a mini patchwork quilt...
Maybe I'll do a mini flying geese quilt or some stars?
Thanks for checking it out, make sure to look at all the other projects on amylouwho's blog.

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.

If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features.

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
