I've been crafty all of my life and lead a prayer shawl ministry at my church where we mostly knit and crochet. A lady came to my office at work (the church) and asked if we were ever be interested in fabric for quilting or making blankets. I said of COURSE! She said she was moving and selling off all of the

Accuracy, precision, points as sharp as daggers and peicing that simply can not be done any other way are all reasons to "specifically" PP.
I finished cutting all the fabric for my quilt tonight. Can't wait to start piecing this weekend.
So far I am making a decent dent in my flannel supply. I have loaded up on it the past 2 Black Fridays at JoAnn's and the shelf I keep it on has very little room. I made a Curious George blanket for my son, a baby top, and last night I started another baby top. I have again this year decided to track how much fabric I buy and use. Last year I ended negative, meaning I used more than I bought. Here are a few pics of the latest projects.
I am interested in buying a sewing machine, for both sewing and quilting. I'm not a beginner, but my memory has been affected by chemotherapy so, I should get one that has ease of use as a feature, just in case. I will have to keep on learning how to use it, because my short term memory is that bad.
I'm expecting to pay about $600. If it makes a big difference, I can spend up to $1000 at the utmost, obviously prefer to spend less. If I had my desire, it'd be a dressmaker, quilting,

I'm looking forward to this weekend. I haven't been doing much in the way of sewing this week. I did finish up a knitted piece that is ready for felting. I'm going to make it into a hot pad to give away to a family member. Last weekend I finally finished up four potholders I was making before Christmas. Those will also be given away at the family reunion. Tonight I will finally start cutting the fabric for my first lap quilt. This is the quilt I will give away at the family reunion this
Hi everyone, I'm new in this blog. I got a comment on my fabric boards that my dh is selling.
Does the blog have a for sale page for us to list things we are selling?
I do have them listed on the main board section under sale items.
Sorry if I listed in the wrong place.
The 9 1/2" squares are all cut out and I decided to pair them with black. I cut out 9 1/2" squares of black fabric and sewed a 1/4" seam all around. Nothing ever goes right.
I ran out of black fabric and still have 12 squares of the strips.
What to do? Just use the squares paired with the black?
Send my son out to get more black since I'm carless today and also sick?
I really just wanted to use up my stash, but with the extra trimmings
