work in progress

I'm so glad I went to the Home Machine Quilting Show..it was just what I needed to finish this quilt...
I started it almost 2 years ago! I love the detail in it, this picture doesn't do it justice. My Grandma purchased it for me at  My very first Quilt Show in Layton, Utah.  So I was working on some more blocks tonight and it just makes me laugh looking back. I had no business even attempting this quilt. I didn't have any experience quilting and I dive into this very advanced paper piecing quilt.
Look at those tiny half square triangles! I have so much more experience quilting now and I still look at that and don't think I could do it again.
Click here for a close up of some of the blocks.
I just need to finish some more filler blocks and I think I will be done by this weekend. The only hard part is trying to decide how I should quilt it. I will do it myself of course on the Long Arm, I just don't know if I should stip all over, maybe some echo quilting around the buildings...not sure, Anywho, thanks for looking!

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

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!

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
