Having finished my Irish Themed Quilt, I am in a state of disbelief lol ! I was chatting to some ladies at a line dancing group and I have got two more orders for bed throws!! Can you imagine it!! One wants peachy brown autumn tones and the design is completely up to me (yipee!!) and the other wants one for their parent's wedding anniversary, 70 years!! Yes, its platinum apparantly, so my imagination is going mad lol!

Hi, everyone here is a tutorial for a tutu I made for my three year old daughter to attend ballet class., It's easy quick and a very forgiving project.

This blog is dedicated to all the dolls I have and to all the doll lovers alike. My doll is wearing some of the clothes I have made for her and in time I will add other dolls and their clothes. This is one of a few past time hobbies for me and I like to see little girls faces light up when they play and enquire…Continue
I am new to this social website. I must say I have found it to be quite positive. In my profile I mention some of my history, but I would like to share with you (like minded artists) my dream. I used to think my only dream was to start my business, but I have come to the point in my decision that it is more than just a business. Some may have a business as a mere moneymaker, and others to use their…Continue
Hi, Just thought I'd mention a bit about the Irish Themed Quilt I have just finished. It was made for a friend to give her father for Christmas (so no pressure for time there then!!)
I got some beautiful brilliant white and some lovely emerald green fabrics from the Chilworth Quilt Festival as well as the perfect shade of black/brown fat quarter for the guinness glass.
Shamrock shaped buttons, assorted green squares, football…Continue
Almost done with the holiday sewing, then I need to get to some of the more traditional Christmas activities.
Decorating the tree, sending out cards, cleaning the house, shopping, hair, oh my goodness, where does the time go.
Honestly, I can't hardly think about anything outside of my sewing room. I'm already thinking about what I'm going to sew after Christmas. I'm thinking a raincoat for my dog Otis to keep him dry on our walks, and a doggy bed.
What a great site please join.

Don't be afraid of the big bad Bias! I used to be and then found a great way to make it easily. I want to share it with you.
Bias tape takes a good bit of fabric, but it's still less expensive than buying the pre-packaged kind. In my estimate and experience, you can make approximately 5-6 yards of bias tape form 1 yard of fabric.
Okay, let's begin.
Lay your fabric on a flat surface. Open the fabric…Continue
I have a question about sewing with velvet. What is the trick to sewing it, I tried making a small toiletry bag
but when sewing the seams either the top piece of fabric or the bottom piece would shift so that at the end of the seam there would be an overhang of fabric. There must be a trick to sewing it?
This is a bag I made for keeping the books, cord, Pen and everything for the Leapster TAG reading system that we're giving our grandson (5 years old) for Christmas.
Gee - can you tell they live in the Indianapolis area?…
Help me decide..........
My hubby and I ballroom dance (social, not DWTS!) and New Year's Eve is always a fun time for which I always make a new gown (and since I owned a fabric shop in town for 13 years - many 'watch' for what I make each year it seems). I found a wonderful velour panne type velvet knit in a ruby red with embossed starbursts while I was in Atlanta this summer for the American…Continue
