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!

Using this blog post, I stitched up a quilt top for grandson #1. The fabric line is VeloCity by Jessica Hogarth for P & B Textiles. There is a close-up of all those great prints in one of my previous posts.
Now I'm waiting for the Simplicity pattern sale to begin at Hancock Fabrics on Thursday so I can purchase a pattern for a jacket that I'm really excited to get started sewing. I plan to have my new fall jacket completed next week some time (even though it is still in the 90's here). That's as far as I've gotten on my fall sewing plans so far. Do you have fall/winter sewing plans already, or are you like me, and you procrastinate until the new season is upon us?

I didn't want to invest a lot of $$$ in purchasing materials for the display, so I went 'shopping' around my house and found the supplies I thought might work. I used an old bulletin board, fabric, extra-large ric rac, chicken wire (thanks to my DD), fabric scrapbook flowers, scrapbook papers, and clear acrylic cards. The only supplies I purchased were the spray paint and the hooks from which to hang the frames. I am very pleased with the final product and I plan to post a tutorial in the near future.
Now I must go put a couple small holes in my sewing room wall so I can hang this and give those lovely turn-of-the-century sewing cards the visibility they deserve. :)
