My week has been mostly focused on dealing with resodding my front lawn. That cascaded into a host of other issues since the sod people cut my FIOS and my neighbors Brighthouse cables in the process (despite them being marked by the underground utility spray markers that come out). Anyway – my mailbox has been more active with quilty stuff than anything else in my room this week. I wanted to share some fabric and such. These fabrics came from {Read More}

That dreaded question we always hear when a friend or family member finds out that you’re a quilter: “How much would it cost to get you to make me a quilt?” It stops many a quilter in their tracks. We never quite know what to say. People are flabbergasted to hear the prices we pay for quilt shop quality fabric, thread, computerized sewing machines and longarms. Yet, they want to get a custom piece for the price of a quilt {Read More}

Etsy order finish, Gone with the Wind obsession

8737268617_f33ba5e27e

Last week I got a custom Etsy order for coordinating sewing machine organizer mats. I decided last night I’d make as much progress as I could on the order – I ended up finishing them in one night! They turned out really cute. I love the fabric she chose.  You can make your own with my free tutorial!  She wanted a smaller one for her serger so I did a mini size that has two pocket areas instead of three. {Read More}

Fabric Diet Update

I’m hitting that point in my fabric diet where I’m having some bad withdrawal. I keep reminding myself I only have two weeks left. Fabric Diet Countdown   I managed to make it through Black Friday despite a really good sale on Flannels and other fabrics that various stores were having.  I haven’t been browsing Ebay very much.  For the most part I’ve been staying out of stores altogether which has helped the whole fabric diet stay on track. While organizing {Read More}
