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}

Selfish Sewing Week ~ My Hand-Stitched Jam Pincushion

I’m a little late joining in on the Selfish Sewing Week bandwagon, but I am finally done with my Jam Jar Pincushion I created from Sweetly Stitched Handmades by Amy Sinibaldi (aka Nana Company).

Killer Applique Blocks & Fun Happenings!

After I purchased the book I read it. And re-read it.  This coverlet {Read More}

Birthday Pillows & Spa Treatments!

  Last Saturday was oldest’s 14th birthday.  Besides the traditional birthday fun, I decided to add some more *young-man* sorts of furnishings to his room.  This boy of mine has his room set up and organized just the way he likes, so I had to make sure the changes were not big ones.  I added deep red black-out curtains that not only made his room look like a dungeon, they have been keeping drafts out too. Bonus!  I also found a {Read More}
