"I don't mind hand sewing, but I do love all the nifty things my sewing machine does. I love the idea of the 'practice' book. I think I'll put that into 'practice'."

That's What Friends Are For

Posted on April 19, 2011 at 5:00pm 2 Comments

My friend, Londa, posted on her blog about making a dress, V1250. I headed over to the Vogue website to see the pattern and, holey-moley! it was on sale for $3.99. "Hmm", I said to self.

In Lieu of Working…

I know. I'm supposed to be slaving away at work right now, but hey, every girl deserves a break, right?

 

So have you seen these mug rugs? They are just way too cute! Two thoughts—

  1. I have no desire to become a "Quilter", but this is doable.
  2. I can finally throw away the coffee-stained, broken plastic canvas mug rugs currently residing on my table…
