About Me

My photo

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!

Descent from M-M-M'12

I must confess, the Me-Made-May'12 challenge proved to be just that - a challenge!  Several days each week I did wear something I made.  The other days?  I either completely forgot, or was just in the mood to wear something else.  And some of the days when I did wear something I made, I forgot to photograph my ensemble.  So there you have it.  We are at the end of May, I did not make the challenge, but I did learn something from it:  I have some items that I tend to wear over and over, while some of my other items sit idle in the closet either forgotten or ignored.  I have beutiful garments that I put a lot of time into constructing and I need to make a conscious effort to ensure they get their due time on the runway.  I guess it is no different from my RTW clothing.  I have some items I wear over and over while others sit idle.  Perhaps I need to clean out my closet. 

I leave you with a couple photos from this week:

Right now I am piecing together a few quilt squares for a bed runner, I have a Vogue top on my cutting table, and I have a baby gift in queue.  Hopefully the remainder of this week I will be productive.
