  Button nose.  Cute as a button.  Button, button, who’s got the button? I have.  Scads of them.  Some my own.  Some from my mother.  Some from where I have no clue. Do you know how long it takes to sort all these buttons?  Neither do I, but I know I’ve already put in hours […]

Crazy Quilt Madness

Saturday, August 21st, 2010

At the last metting of our sewing guild, small plastic bags of fabric scraps were passed around to us with a challenge of using them to make 9″x9″ crazy quilt blocks for a charity quilt.  This is what my haul looked like right after being removed from the bag. The next picture is what I have after ironing it […]

Sewing or Sailing

Saturday, August 14th, 2010

I admit that today I would much rather be sailing than sewing.  I sometimes get an overwhelming urge to once more live and work at sea.  Today’s one of those days that I’m missing the life of a sea person. I had to memorize this poem when I was in the third grade and I’ve […]

Splicing Sheets

Saturday, July 24th, 2010

  It’s not fun.  Splicing sheets, that is.  I decided to cut three king sized sheets down to queen size.  The first sheet worked just fine.  I did all the trimming of the extra fabric first. I zoomed right along with the first sheet, but there was just something about the second and third that […]

Saturday Sewing Sadness

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

Why the sadness?  Because after working all night on Fridays, I’m just too tired to sew.  I’m trying to figure out a way to get past this hump.  Since I don’t work on Saturday nights, I do push myself to stay up a little later, but I just can’t get motivated to sew. What gives […]

Sewing Stash Solutions

Saturday, January 9th, 2010

  Don’t try to kid me.  If you sew, do any kind of needlework or crafts, you have a stash.  Some how, it always happens.  We don’t start out intentionally building that stash.  It just happens. You start with a little left over yarn, fabric or craft supplies.  Gee, it’s a crime to just toss […]

Mingling with Mittenz

Saturday, August 15th, 2009

The knitters are at it again.  Pictures of mittens are pouring in.  Check out Ann’s blog over at sheepshots to see the latest from the land of knitters.  Mittenz 2009 will be warming a lot of hands at Cheyenne River Reservation this year.  I’m ashamed to say that none of those mittens in the pictures were […]

Peeking in on Ariel

Saturday, August 1st, 2009

I’ve been peeking in on Ariel’s Antics.  She’s made a gorgeous tote bag using the Professional Women’s Tote pattern from The Creative Thimble.  It’s for her friend, Donna, and is pretty in purple.  This is the second one she made.  The first one has a lot of pink in the pattern, but has a lining that […]

mittnz 2009

Saturday, July 11th, 2009

  It’s mittnz time again for the knitters and crocheters who help keep all the hands (as well as heads, necks and feet) warm at the Cheyenne River Reservation.  We will be blitzing the rez with mittens, gloves and wristers the first week in October.  You can go to Sheep Shots and read Ann’s April 12th […]
