April 6, 2010 in Find It / Buy It, General, Projects

What a beautiful Easter weekend.  A great way to welcome spring.  Although this holiday was very difficult for my family, it was so nice to enjoy this lovely weather outdoors with the extended family together laughing, talking, and sharing great stories from way back!  After hours of talking my stories usually gravitate back to sewing at some point.  My aunt ...

February 26, 2010 in Find It / Buy It

I have completed a few applique projects and the scissors I have just would not cut the material close enough.  I went through the Nancy's Notions catalog and found exactly what I have been looking for, the gingher 6" applique scissors.  Of course, I found many other tools that would be very helpful as well.  I can't wait until my ...

The Stack 'n Store Bobbin Towers are a really useful storage unit to keep all of those bobbins within hand's reach and off the floor. The layers can be pulled ...

Free Motion Gloves

February 19, 2010 in Find It / Buy It

When free motion quilt I prefer to wear quilting gloves. I wish they were magic gloves that made my free motion perfect, but they're not. They are, however, great grippers and they keep my hands from drying out. Generally with free motion quilting you want to hold the area that you're quilting as if your hands were the hoop. When you ...

Quilt Kits…

February 12, 2010 in Find It / Buy It

Some say quilt kits are cheating. And, while they have a point, I like to think that it is simply encouraging me to finish my quilt in a reasonable amount of time. When the fabric is already measured and together, I can start cutting right away. What can I say, maybe I'm taking a short cut and limiting my creativity, but ...

March 20, 2009 in Find It / Buy It

Everytime I go into the sewing shop I glance over the books, hoping one might jump out and grab my attention. And, in my last trip in, one did. Oh Sew Easy Life Style, caught my eye. This book is great for those new to sewing (like myself). It starts off with Basic How-Tos, including sewing must-haves, the lingo, and techniques. The projects ...

Ever run across a fat quarter that you just can't pass up? Every time I go into the fabric store I always look longingly at them, trying to decide what I could make them. And, on occassion, I'll find one, just one, that I must have. When I get home and look at my growing stash I realize that I ...
