About Me

As a Martha Pullen licensed sewing teacher I love to learn new sewing techniques and I equally enjoy teaching sewing techniques to others.  You can also find me teaching Bernina Customer Courses at my local Bernina dealer.  In addition, I demonstrate Stampin' Up products.  I am a servant of the Lord of Lords and King of Kings, wife of one, mom of two, and grandma of five.  Welcome to my sewing and crafting studio!

Happy Valentine's Day

Here are some sweet gifts from my sweet DH who happens to be out of town on this sweet day.  Whatta guy!  I Love you DH.  The cute little stuffed dog brings to mind a said Basset who lives with us.  Same coloring and the heart horns are quite befitting.

Crochet Moss Rose

This crochet pattern is from ammee's idea book #4, Crochet Candy - Embellishments & More.  I love the patterns in this book.  This is what the flower looked like when I finished crocheting it.  Most of the flower patterns in this book are shown with a button in the center, so. . .

I added the black button from my stash.  I sewed it on using the same yarn (Manos cotton stria, color #205) and a size 16 tapestry needle.  I will add this to a baby shower gift that I will be making shortly.  Here it is with the fabric I intend to use for that gift.  More on that later.

Is that not just too cute?!
