Sew Many Machines

Seriously guys, I have SEW many sewing machines! (I’d tell you that I’m sorry for the pun, but I’m not.) I currently have no less than 6 sewing machines in my house.   And in the last month I’ve had at least 3 offers from people wanting to give me their vintage machines.  Unfortunately, what with Read More …

Those 1st Sewing Projects

The Houseful of Nicholes is talking about 1st sewing projects on Thread Filled Thursdays this week, so I wanted to go back and share the first couple of sewing projects I shared on the blog.  They were both part of Craft Month 2011, where I crazily decided that I would do a new craft project Read More …

My Quilt Design Process

Though it’s something I haven’t had much time for with the new baby, I love making quilts.  I think it’s the concept of taking a stack of fabrics that anyone could have and making something completely my own.

But I do still have something to share with you this week- a brand new (to me) sewing machine. This jewel was my birthday gift from my husband.  It’s about a month after my Read More …

Another Baby Quilt

It seems like the only quilting I get around to doing lately is making baby quilts for people. I don’t mind that at all, but I have been seriously slacking in the amount of time I put into my sewing projects lately.  That’s why I’m glad that my sister requested a make a baby quilt Read More …

WIP Wednesday

It’s been ages since I’ve written up a WIP Wednesday post. And that’s mainly because I haven’t had any progress to share, but with some recent work to my sewing space (more on that later), I’ve managed to get some work done over the last few weeks. I made up a baby quilt for a Read More …
