Let me guess, you are probably getting ready to leave work and go away on vacation for the weekend or (better yet) pack the kiddos up to ship them off to Gram’s and Gramp’s house for the weekend. Those are … Continue reading
What to do with nap time? Clean the house, make dinner, wash dishes, scrub the toilet, fold laundry… or use some of my favorite fabric to make something new (and test out more of the attachments on my BrotherSE400). I … Continue reading
Last week, I upgrade from an Elna 500 (circa early 70’s) to a Brother SE 400. A few tutorials and reviews are in the works- but I am already so glad that I went with this new machine. A friend … Continue reading

After a surprising early Easter package arrived on my door step, I decided to start gearing up for Spring! I hung our pennants on the front door and also a simple wreath the babe and I made. But I am … Continue reading
You know you do it: start with a google image search of the item you like
(dream of in your sleep) in hopes that SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE has mastered the same item in a way that you can replicate- in about 10 minutes or less. But alas- all you find are short-cuts resulting in an item that will fall apart after a washing or l.o.n.g. drawn out videos of someone piecing together their attempts in between lunch etc..
I want to change that. For at least a few tutorials… let’s see where the interest is and go from there. I love hand quilting (I made Baby Bunny’s quilt when I was pregnant and have added a few as gifts since then… pictures to come in the future), have fashioned some new valances for our kitchen and bathroom, dressed up burp clothes, place mat, table runner, aprons, mastered the ‘wet bag’, created pajamas, dresses, skirts… you name it. Some of them follow patterns other are patterns of my own and come free to you with what NOT to do. 🙂
Please use the poll to let me know what you are interested in. My sewing time is usually short lived; in between naps or the occasional night when I manage to stay up after 9:30 p.m. and need some Mommy time. So I understand the need for cute ideas that can actually be completed and not cast into the corner of “to be finished”.
Looking forward to your ideas!
A must have for any diaper bag or purse… Top right is the “fancy store bought brand” and the other two are my own! (Complete with monogram)
