A few weeks ago our "Cozy for the Cure Tribe" was back in action.  Why?  Because Jordan has been getting some national attention for her Cozy fundraising efforts.  She was featured on the NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt.  Once that feature aired, the orders POURED in.  So much so,...

My Late Friend Sarah.

Posted by 5 November, 2017 Comments off
Meet my dear friend, Sarah. Sarah is crazy smart, funny, adorable, and a LATE person.  I am sure you have one too.  I am blessed to have TWO late people in my tribe. I woke up on Tuesday (Halloween) with a text from Sarah that reads... I am thinking, "Cloaks...

My daughter says to me, "I want to go trick or treating."  I respond with, "You are 5'7" and 14 years old.  You are too old to go trick or treating."  She tells me "BUT, I want to make a costume together!" She is lying, of course.  I know this. ...

Last week was not my week.  A few things.... 1) My blog did not go out as planned last week.  It was not because I didn't write it.  I did,  WEEKS ahead of time.  It didn't go out on time because our store credit card was stolen.  We had our...

Ruffle me this.

This summer Anna Maria Horner came out with some of her new fabric.  I really like Anna Maria.  I don't actually know her, but I stalk her on Instagram.  I have been trying to get her to come here to do an event, so far she hasn't jumped at the...
I took my second garment sewing class last night at Modern Textiles with Jean Sando.  I knew exactly what I wanted to learn....how to fit a garment to my body.  I fall between sizes and always pick the bigger size, sew it, THEN alter it!  Seriously, that is what I...

Ode to Kaye.

We had The Quilt Exhibit a few weeks ago.  Our featured speaker was Kaye England.  Never heard of her?  Me neither, but I am just stepping my toes into the quilting world.  I just figured she was some old lady quilter. ;-) Kaye was scheduled to give a trunk show...

Finally!

Here is the deal:  I stopped writing my blog.  Why??  Because NO ONE noticed. Not even my mother.   Yes, Mom, I'm calling you out! I haven't written for over a month.  Nobody has said a word about it.  I told Kerry, "I stopped writing my blog because no one...

Compass Quilt

Posted by 13 August, 2017 Comments off
My attempts at quilting have not been super successful.  I am talking more traditional quilting where you make blocks and sew the blocks together.  It makes me angry that I can not seem to understand how to make those blocks work together.  Because of this, I keep trying to quilt....

Sewing Block

I have a confession to make.  I am in a sewing rut.  Does this happen to you?  I have zero desire to sew.  I blame it on summer.  The sun shines and I am drawn to it like a moth to a flame.  Sun=Outside to me.  We have had a...

Whistler

Last week we went to Whistler, BC with Janome.  Here is how it works--  You "win" (by spending lots of money) an incentive trip.  This year we "won" and the trip was to Whistler.  We have won trips in the past, the very first trip we went on, I was...
If you have been following my blog since the beginning, you know that sometimes I struggle with following directions.  I have good intentions.  I just feel like I have better ideas.  I do have better ideas, the problem is, my sewing skills don't always align with my ideas. My idea this...

Better Than Snapchat

I have a confession to make.  I do not allow my children to have social media until they are 16. Why? Because I can not stand it.  I do believe my children are better humans when they are not on electronics.  I believe I am a better mother when I...

What Were We Thinking?!

Meet Stacey & Shannon.  They are my guest writers this week. This all transpired on a spring Saturday night on Stacey's porch.  We were sitting around when they say, "Wouldn't it be funny if we tried to sew?".  "Yes, yes it would."  I left it at that and didn't give...
