WIP Wednesday

With #NaBloPoMo this month, I’ve been a bit of a slacker getting my WIP Wednesday posts up, but I’m happy to report that no only did I remember to write up this WIP post, but I have stuff to share! My everyday sewing machine has been in the shop for the last week. Apparently they’re Read More …

Wilmington Prints Trunk Show

I was lucky enough to attend the Wilmington Prints Trunk Show at Let’s Sew on Valentine’s Day. It was a lot of fun to see some of the great things we could make with Wilmington’s yardage and  pre-cut 2.5″ strips.

Project Quilting – Sunrise/Sunset

This week’s Project Quilting challenge was Sunrise/Sunset. As soon as I saw the theme I knew what I wanted to do. It had to be something related to Fiddler of the Roof. I love musicals and the song “Sunrise Sunset” from Fiddler on the Roof is one of my favorites. So without further ado, I Read More …
