Long Time, No See

I haven’t done any posts in a while. Things have been crazy around here. We are starting an addition to the house, plus I’ve had kids home sick from school. I’ve hardly even been on the computer, which is a rarity for me. Here are a couple of “before” pictures of where the addition will […]

Wooden Peg People?

Peg People with just a base coat.I recently helped my sister Shannon paint some wooden peg people. I had never heard of them before. They are reminiscent of the old Playskool “Little People”. Her friend Abby sent her about 24 plain, unpainted wooden figures to paint and decorate. They will be used in Abby’s wedding on […]

Homemade Fabric Kindle Cover

I finally made the Kindle cover for my Grandmother! I ordered the pattern from Birdiful Stitches on etsy probably well over a month ago. Didn’t want to rush into anything.

Gould’s Sugar House

My New Best Friend – Google Reader

Geez, I haven’t put up a post in a while. I think it’s because I’m addicted to reading blogs. I love them. I love to read about what real people are doing to their homes, what they’re cooking, and what they’re creating. It’s a great way to get some inspiration and ideas to try […]

Making Progress

The quilt top is now finished. I was surprised at how quickly it came together. Now to fit the backing, sandwich everything together and quilt. I’m not sure what fabric I’ll use for the binding. Maybe if I have enough left over, I’ll use some of the backing fabric as the binding. I cut all […]

New Project – A Quilt For A Baby

I’ve got a new project to work on. Now that the holidays are over, the house is relatively clean, and I’m caught up on laundry, I thought it would be a good time to get started on a baby quilt that I’ve been wanting to make. It’s for my husband’s co-worker’s baby. Ok, so […]

White 1505 Sewing Machine Price Lowered!

I’ve lowered the price of my White 1505 to $60. I’d like to make some room, so that’s the reason for the change in price. It’s well worth it! I’ve posted the ad on Craigslist. You can see it here. Please contact me if you are interested in it. Here is my previous post […]

Finally, A Pillowcase

I finally made a pillowcase. Actually, I made two, but the first one got really messed up somehow. Seems to happen to me a lot. Anyway, I’m very happy with how it came out. I followed these directions from Amy Butler. They were very simple, and a great project for a beginner or maybe as […]
