Fun with ribbons and decorative stitches!

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

A couple months ago, I had the opportunity to teach a demo class at our local quilt guild. In the few weeks prior to that I dug into my stash of fabrics and ribbon looking for some fun combinations! I had designed this quick tutorial and pattern for this cute little clutch that I had […]


Hang onto those stashes!

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

I have lots of stashes of various bits and pieces of items in my sewing room – fabric scraps, ribbon, beads, buttons and who-knows what else. At times when I’m sorting through things, I often wonder to myself, “Do I really need to keep all this stash of stuff?” And usually I end this mental […]


Just make your own fabric!

Friday, March 26th, 2010

When I started thinking about this little purse/clutch that I wanted to stitch, I had an idea of what fabric I wanted to use. Did I have such a piece of fabric in my hands? Uh, no. The solution: create it! I sandwiched a piece of batting between two layers of poly satin. Using my […]


The *perfect* fabric for bathroom curtains!

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

I was in Colorado last week to visit my friend, Joanna, and of course we had to go to Denver Fabrics. I just love that fabric store!!! They are not a quilt shop, but an excellent source of garment fabrics. Quality garment fabrics are hard to find and many times the cost of yardage can […]

Journal it & don’t forget it!

Tuesday, December 4th, 2007

One of the best things I have learned to do is keep a record or journal of what I am stitching. I am stitching and creating so many projects that it is impossible for me to remember every little detail and there are always things I want to hold onto for future use. Whether I […]


Roll that quilt!

Wednesday, October 31st, 2007

If you are like me, you have many quilts, but only a few beds on which to put them. Or perhaps you have many wall hangings and change them frequently according to the season or holiday. The extra quilts or wall hangings have to be stored or put away for a time until you are […]


New Photos in Gallery

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

I finally have all the photos uploaded of the Camp Memory Quilt I made in 2005. I had taken photos months ago and tried several times to edit the photos to upload the way I wanted, but came up with glitch after glitch. But now everything is uploaded and working great! This quilt was so […]
