2018 Creativity Challenge

Happy Halloween! I hope you had some really fun costumes this year!  I have never been a big fan of Halloween.  Maybe it’s due to the lack of creative costumes, but truthfully I’m not really sure why.  I saw an image about creativity I liked that I think is very true.  It is from the zenchicmoda Instagram page. A little backstory on my creative life...

Busy Busy Busy (Friday Foto Fun #2)

I can’t believe it’s already Friday!  I didn’t have much time at all this week to sit down at my machine and sew.  Have you ever gotten to the point when you are so busy, you end up not doing anything at all because you are in a type of analysis paralysis? I’m at that point and may be even further down that path!  However,...

Lucky Friday the 13th (Friday Foto Fun #1)

I am starting this linky party because I feel with my full time job, I don’t finish enough projects to do a Friday Finish sharing party.  But I would still like to celebrate the smaller wins such as working on designs or finishing up a block or two on a longer term project! <div...

How Do You Display Wall Hanging Quilts?!

I got some Quilter’s Perfect Stick Klips from a Sew Sampler box a few months ago, and I finally decided to try them out.  As it turned out, I loved being able to clip wall hanging quilts and change them up.  The Quilter’s Perfect Stick Klips are a large klip with a sticky strip.  They are pretty heavy duty, and the Sew Sampler said they...
