Kitchen sewing

Hello Show N Tell Friday Friends!
I whipped up a couple things just in time for summer.... I have seen alot of people making these patchwork towels so I thought I would try it.
I love them!
Although I took it a step further and did an applique that says "you are my sunshine" I don't know if I should display that part in my kitchen. I don't want it to look like a little kiddie kitchen. I kinda felt like I was in a daycare...??? Especially with the polka dot curtains...




Then I found this daisy at Ben Franklin for $3bucks! So I picked it up. And I had this tray laying around, it use to be red with a rooster and I painted it white and stuck the flower on it. Not bad huh?



And I used the yellow polka dot fabric from "Make Life" (Love that fabric line)

Thanks for looking!! Click on the link to see Amylouwho's Lonestar Wall Hanging, it is absoulutely amazing! And there are plenty other sewing projects to get you inspired!

  10. LOL! A kiddie kitchen. I know what you mean. I had a repairman walk into my bedroom and want to know where the child was. I had flowered curtains and a quilt on my bed. Does handwork speak of children? Anyway, your towels look great, all cheerful and happy, so pthtt on anyone who thinks they make your kitchen look kiddie.

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. 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.

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
