No More Marking

I am always looking for different and easier ways to do things in my sewing and quilting methods and I found this technique from The Studio Blog on how to sew and cut half quarters without marking every square. Looks like a good idea and I thought I would share it with you! Hope you like it. :)

Happy sewing!

Now We Know What The Red Ball On A Seem Ripper Is For

I know all you sewers out there have your favorite seem ripper, but did you know what the red ball on the short end is for? Well if not, Pam Demour shows us what it is for on her YouTube posting. Thought I would share it with all of you. :)

Happy sewing!

Been Busy Sewing sewing machine has been in a whirl lately. I was so low on stock for the shop and upcoming summer season that I needed to kick it into gear. Normally I take a few weeks off after Christmas, but last year we did so well with the local shows and we now have our products in a local gift shop that our stock was sooooooooooooooooooooo depleted that I had to get started right away. :(

Anyway.....I thought I would show you some new candle mats that I made. I had some scrap fabrics laying around ( yep...laying around everywhere!!) that I thought they would make good candle mats/mug rugs. You can find them here in my Etsy shop. 

I like the folk art primitive look and I had some left-over fabric with small village and salt box houses print so I thought I would make these and use a checked fabric for the border. I think they turned out pretty nice and even hubby liked them so that must mean they are nice. :)

We don't have elk around here in the north country, but where we use to live the elk are very majestic and I thought this fabric was so pretty. I actually have used this fabric to make some coiled bowls, but I had a little left so I thought I would use it. 

I have always liked the Southwestern decor. I think the colors are so bright and festive even if I am a pastel person. I did an applique in the center and used hot chili pepper fabric for the border. This would spice up a kitchen. :)

So I have been busy sewing and sewing which of course I just love......get tired sometimes, but I do like it. So blessed to be able to do this everyday. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Colleen :)
