How exciting! I am working on a chennile quilt (beautiful green and pink floral), smocking a baby heirloom dress, smocking a light green top for a dress for my granddaughter, a peach and brown Mystery quilt and trying to finish a Hawaiian applique top. That does not count all of the other started projects that got moved to the back of the line. Too numerous to mention! My sew group are in the process of planning a beautiful french braid quilt - can't wait, but I must!&...Read Full Post »

I think I have always dreamed of running my own business! I just think that way. I have had numerous ideas throughout the years. Of course, I thought they were "brilliant!" In the early years of my marriage, my husband would tell me all the reasons that idea would not work. I thought of him as the "dream squasher!" Don't get me wrong, he is very practical and I have found that many of his sqashings have been for my own good. Anyway, a change occurred when he heard someone on the radio explain...Read Full Post »

A few years ago I noticed that when I walked into my sewing room, I was instantly inspired! I noticed that it made me smile. Right then I started calling it my "Feel Good Room".
I have not always had a "sewing room" or Studio. It was not until we moved to Oregon and were able to buy a house with an extra "office" or "bedroom". I remember my then teenage son saying he wanted that room! I had already called it. It was very exciting to finally hav...Read Full Post »

I made these for my daughter in law, Mary and granddaughter, Gracie. They were a lot of fun to make!

All I can say is "wheww". What a Christmas Season! I finished everything on my "list". I still do not know how that happened, but I am sure exhausted! I had 2 stockings, 2 aprons, 1 table runner, and 1 quilt! I made this Red Skins Quilt for my favorite son in law! He is a great fan. Hopefully the quilt will bring his team some luck!

I have a huge "To Do" list for Christmas, as I am sure you do as well! Just finished one on the list. A Christmas table runner. I purchased a long flat 3 section serving dish and then coordinated the colors with this table runner. I just realized that my camera does not show the colors as well as I'd like. The green is a pretty apple green. Oh well. Here it is.

A new Butterfly quilt to welcome my newest granddaughter Saige Marie! Her mother requested butterflies in purple and Sage with soft dessert tones. I embroidered the butterflies in random squares and used a floral with small flowers. What do you think? I hope she loves it!

Wow! Does that ever feel good to finish an old project! When I took this class in Counterchange smocking, my grandchildren had not even began to happen. I did not even know if I would be blessed with a grand daughter. I chose the size 3 dress and began. My teacher was a skilled heirloom sewing expert and I learned so much from her. The dress has french seams, the bodice has lining that has lace and piping. The dress has sat in an unfinished stage for ...Read Full Post »

What an exhausting, fun filled past few days! Daughter was here for a wedding with two of my grand babies. Kate is almost 4 and what a precious little girl she is. She loves pink and puppies and princesses. She requested new jammies, as the ones I made her were getting too little! We took a trip to the fabric store and picked out a "night time gown" and silky flannel back princess fabric. It had some of the Disney Princesses, Cinderella, Belle, Aurora and S...Read Full Post »
