Secret Santa Swap

I know I showed my Snowman already but what I didn't tell you is that I have to give it away...
Yess, I made it for the Secret Santa Swap! In a couple days I have to pack it up and ship it out.
But if it puts a smile on my swap partners face then its worth it!

I attached tabs on the back so it can be hung with just a little nail. (i don't know why one tab looks smaller, I promise it's just the picture angle)

Usually I hand stitch the back of the binding but this time I did it by machine and my experience is finally paying off! It looks like I did it by hand! Tons of pinning is key.
Thanks for looking! If you jump over to  CottonCharmquilts you can visit other blogs that participated in the swap.

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. (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.

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
