Valentine’s Day Tech Bites

Meadows full of tiny flowers, where the walking dead roam freely is the back drop for this “Zombie Love” fabric line by Emily Taylor (for Riley Blake). I am not sure if everyone will agree with me, but I totally see this as a Valentine’s Day fabric. Why you might ask? Well, for starters, it has …

Cute as Sheep Office Bag

MAIN2_OFFICEBAG

Ok. I think I can NOW say I am ready for 2016. I am not sure why but I have been totally overwhelmed by this bag. Maybe it’s because I have wanted to quilt and not make a bag. Maybe it’s because I wanted to make a different bag. (like the sew together bag by SewDemented) …

Say Thank You With A Quilt

rolled up quilt

  This quilt features my Garden Star Pattern with an added border. I was very picky when arranging the colors used in the center of the quilt, which lead me to get more charm packs then anticipated (when only needing one full charm pack I used 4 so I would have the right amount of black). …

My Christmass Rag Quilt

ragtime_xmas_main

What I love about a rag quilt is how soft and warm they are. The components to a warm, fuzzy rag quilt are flannel and batting; which are sandwiched together and then tacked in place with an X.  For this quilt, I simply took one 9” square and sewed it to 71 other squares (I left the …

Friendship Jewelry With Flair

I think I might be an entrepreneur at heart. Way back when I was in grade school, I would make friendship bracelets and sell them to my classmates. When I bought the trimmings for my cross body bag, that one with the tassels hanging from the lace… Well, I was inspired. I wanted sweet tart …
