WIP Wednesday – The Little Engine That Could…

So I’m still running with my theory of several small projects going on at the same time is a good idea. And it is (at least for me). I am caught up on my Field Study Tote Sew-Along with Betz White. We are up to the handles which is Day 4, today on her blog.  These handles are easy to sew on and unique. I used a recycled heavy cotton webbing I got from a belt on discount at TJMaxx. {Read More}

Field Study Totes, Vintage Singers & A Noodlehead Book!

I am happy to say I’m finally caught up with the Field Study Tote Sew-Along and am ready for the next steps this week.  I really love sew-alongs. Especially when they are spaced out and the end result will be awesome! All my pieces are cut out, interfaced and hardware organized.  I installed the interior pocket with velcro closure and installed the nice interior zipper too.  Next week I believe we are tackling the exterior pocket(s) and magnetic snaps so {Read More}

WIP Wednesday – Sew-Along Edition

This book is all kinds of cuteness and the projects are so her.  If you need inspiration in hand-stitching, unique gifts, and classic sewing read her blog! The pincushion was fairly easy to make.  I have never hand-stitched letters or labels so that was fun, even if {Read More}

Killer Applique Blocks & Fun Happenings!

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a nice weekend.  Once again, we had snow showers and bitter temperatures but that didn’t stop us from this: The famous Monster Truck show!  We have had the toy versions of these trucks in the house for 10 years, but seeing them *live* is always fun. There were lots of flips, overturned trucks and tires popping off this time around which the boys loved.    If you haven’t had a chance to take {Read More}
