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!

I didn't make a whole lot of progress on my Jalie jeans this week, but here's a couple of pics.
First is the front pocket 'bag'.  This is what I will see each time I pull on my new jeans:

Second is a close-up of the front pocket topstitching.

I'm almost done with the zipper insertion, but don't have any pictures to share yet.  Construction of the jeans has been temporarily halted as my little grandson was born three weeks early and I am hosting a baby shower for my daughter this month so I must make the baby quilt a couple of weeks sooner than I anticipated.  I'm almost done piecing the baby quilt and plan to completely finish it by next weekend. 

This is what I used earlier this week

to accomplish this in about 15 minutes:

I LOVE my Accuquilt Go!  I will be using it again this week to cut the binding strips for the baby quilt.  Here's to a (hopefully) productive week.
