It's REALLY Going to HAPPEN, Moving.....

Pin It
It's A BIT funny the things that make 
something real to you. 
A house offer, an inspection, an appraisal all done. But, it's didn't all seem real until I started unloading my office. 


My office Before



The shelves are to stay with the house


Packed up all my books, papers and ideas.
I'm ready for our NEW adventure

Adding a Triangle - How to Quilt Part Twelve with The Quilt Ladies

Pin It

12 Adding a Triangle
I do my blocks this way, they are perfect, a bit of fabric waste, but I like this method 

Start with your base square, cut as stated in pattern
Cut 2 Squares (Lt. Blues) and sew corner to corner  Trim the back to ¼” from seam allowance
Cut 1 Square (Dk. Blue) and sew corner to corner  Trim the back to ¼” from seam allowance
Cut 1 Square (Gray) and sew corner to corner  Trim the back to ¼” from seam allowance

The Quilt Ladies teach you how to quilt.

This is the end of "Quilt with The Quilt Ladies"

Staging a Bedroom, Making Rubber Tubs into a Bed

Pin It
Doing it a bit Different 
This is the corner where my buffet was at one time. This room has never had a bed in it, it was my sewing room. So putting the house on the market it needed a bed.
Making Rubber Tubs into a Bed

I took the packed fabric tubs and make a Day Bed

Adding Triangles Each Side - How to Quilt Part TEN with The Quilt Ladies

Pin It

10) Triangles on each end
1.   The base fabric (Blue) is cut finished size plus ½”,
length and width.
Corner is cut finished size plus ½”, length and width.

On the smaller square, draw a light pencil line from corner
to corner with a ruler, on wrong side of fabric, this is your sewing line.
 When you go to the sewing machine,
sew just to the left of the line or toward the part that
will be cut off. Sew only a thread or two from
the line making the piece turn easier.

2.       Place good to good fabric, sew from corner to corner.

My Singer Feather Weight Sewing Machine

Pin It
I knew it was in the closet and seeing it again....
It's been a very long time
I had to say good-bye to it's original box years ago and this carpet bag 
is perfect for it.

my singer feather weight sewing machine

A Singer Feather Weight




My mom gave this to me years ago and I used it for classes for years. 
She tells the story behind it.  This sewing machine was the first thing that her and my Father purchased together. She remember is being around 70.00 dollars. If they did it on payments my Grandfather would have to co-sign. They saved and purchased with cash, she said with a very large smile.  The pedal was replaced sometime ??


It works wonderful 


And So Pretty
