Stash Quilting..

So I came up with a great idea, instead of going out and buying more fabric I can stay in and use the fabric I already have!! These 2 quilts are made using fabrics that I have on hand, I am trying so hard not to buy new fabric.
Moving on....I can't believe how much I can get done between 10pm-1am! This quilt only took me a couple hours to do. I worked on it Thursday night and finished it Friday Morning! Instead of cutting each square individually I just sewed 3 inch strips together..I think that was the trick! Anyway, I can't wait to throw this on the long arm and get quilting. And then I started on this strip quilt, it will be for a boy, you can't see too well but the navy blue fabric is actually paw prints, then the red has bones on it and the pale color are words that have everything to do with dogs....
So since I basically did a sewing blitz these past two nights I am now behind on housework (ugh) That means I don't know when I will be able to finish this quilt :( For now I need to get to bed, it is almost 2am and I can hear my dog snoring, haha. Goodnight~

(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
