Sew N Tell

Another friday and I finally finished this applique quilt!
I thought it would be so easy but i did a blanket stitch around all the lettering and it is very time consuming! Also..i didn't even notice that I'm missing another flower at the top until I took this picture! Guess I better go do that now!
I used white thread because I didn't want the threading to show or stand out.
Hope you like!   This will be a quilt I am donating to our locate shelter. I'm sure it will brighten a little girls day!

And then I just wanted to post this paw print quilt that I finished the binding on!
At first I didn't like it but it's growing on me. No way am I going to show you a close up of the shadow quilting that I did around the paw prints, it is a mess! lol

but I do like how the straight line quilting looks on the back...
And I just used the same paw print fabric for the binding as well. I just love that fabric. It was another bargain of mine. It is Michael Miller fabric from for only $2.95 yd! Can't beat that!

Thanks for looking. Be sure to check out all the other finished projects on Sew N Tell Friday!

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.

(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

This is a must have in the summer heat I had a summer baby, born in July!  And I wanted her to have privacy when out in public but there was no way I was going to drape a blanket over her so as a sewer I came up with a solution! Moms are problem solvers!
