Sewing with pencil patterned fabric

Sewing with pencil patterned fabric

Hi friends, let’s sew something shall we? I bought a beautiful pencil patterned fabric a few years ago “for mom”, but secretly wanting it for myself.

Quilted Christmas Table Runner

Quilted Christmas Table Runner

It’s time for some quilty pleasure, sewing for myself. It’s especially “bad” because I was supposed to create handmade gifts “for everyone” and instead I made something for myself… But really, is it selfish when it’s about self-preservation?

Dear Photo Diary | Newness in the air

The month of May has been divided into two very intense parts: beautiful weather that draws me outdoors, away from the computer and blogging, and heavy computer work time that also has drawn me away from social media and writing blog posts.

Inspired by my own fabric stash, tutorials and inspiration online, the book Quilt Improv and the fabric swap I’m in of course.

If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then, you are an excellent leader. Dolly Parton I think summer is perfect for sewing projects. Don’t you agree? I want to sew skirts, quilts, softies and tiny broaches that looks like flowers. I want to […]

Sun Printing Fabric

Sun Printing Fabric

One of my biggest Summer Crushes has always been Coloring Fabric Outside! Using paint and dye in the grass makes cleaning up a breeze! In summer, when ever the weather is good enough to bringing tools and materials outside, I bring tools and materials outside. I love being outdoor, and when I can I bring […]
