Yesterday I put the first border on.  I realized that I needed some sort of break from all of the color, so I sewed a 1.5" black border all the way around the quilt top. While I did that, I realized that I was breaking some pretty...

It seems like I have done little over break.  When you look at the pictures below, all of the seams I pulled out are not obvious.  I sewed the jeans down (partially) 3 times.  I basted the flyers on then sewed them on for real.  The...

The craft fair worked out pretty well.  I sold quite a few Holiday Cards and a couple of record cards.  I even sold a shirt!     The best part was seeing friends.  A few people showed up to show their support.  It was...

My Spoonflower fabric has ARRIVED!  I am very happy to say that it looks awesome.  I can now begin the production of the Digger quilt. While I have been waiting for fabric, I started making a bag.  I had this great idea about the bag...

This was once my favorite shirt.  When I was in my early 20's, I wore this nearly out.  Long ago, I put it away.  In our current house, it's been hanging in the hall closet ever since we moved in (7ish years ago).  I have...
