Colette Patterns Moneta Dress Review

Published by under Sewing

A while back I made the Colette Patterns Moneta Dress. I think the dress is absolutely adorable and had wanted to make it for a while. The one I have for you today I don’t love on myself and it has already been given away to someone it fits much better. I might make it […]

A quilt top for mom

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

A while ago (and by a while I mean like 10 years ago), my mom made a quilt top. This quilt top languished in her fabric vault until about a year or two ago when I started doing longarm quilting. When I was home last time, I told her she just needed to get it […]

do. Good Stitches

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

I get a lot of joy out of quilting and sewing, but most of the sewing that I do would be classified as “selfish sewing.” It’s sewing that I do for me because I want to. I don’t feel too bad about this because I work hard at my job and sewing is one of […]

More Halloween Fun

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

Some more decoration for Halloween. I worked on a Halloween quilt this year (more details on that in another post). And using the leftover fabric, I decided to make a little festive table decoration.

  My husband has one of those Apple Pencils to go with his iPad but he has a hard time keeping track of it, so he asked me to make him a holder for it that could attach to his iPad.     I actually made him two. One from leather and one from lycra. […]

Random 8th Grade Sewing Project

Published by under Sewing

Back when I was in 8th grade, you could still take home ec. It was the BEST class. We got to cook and sew and learn about color theory and did I mention, sew? Yeah, we got to sew for school. At that point, I had already been sewing for fun for a while so […]

Murder Mystery Quilt – April and May

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

So, I’m a tad behind in posting. As usual, getting pictures from my camera to my blog always takes longer than expected. Here’s the block from Chapter 4 for April. For this one, we did reverse appliqué. Above is after I based the green pieces to the back using quilt basting spray. I also starched […]
