Pop Star Update

It's binded and ready to snuggle!
I just love this picture! The colors are so wonderful don't ya think?
I just couldn't  decide on what  fabric to use for the binding so I just did a scrappy binding. I also did NOT hand blind stitch the binding on.I actually did the whole thing on  my machine and I think it turned out okay. The trick is to pin, pin, pin and use more pins to keep the binding in place as you sew.
 If you have followed my blog for a while I think you'll understand why so many picturues....I just love taking pictures!

And here is the back. I just used the same fabric, no piecing on the back. I purchased this fabric from for $2.95 a yard!!! It was when they had there Westminster Blowout Sale. Gotta love em.
and here is a pics of the whole back of the quilt.
And I just threw this one in for eye candy!
And the last pic!..The quilt in its entirety! 
Oh-and some people have asked...I did machine quilt this myself, I used a freehand feather design. Also, I did not have a pattern for this. I just used 3" squares from my favorite scraps! Happy quilting!

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?
