Sewing Gifts For The Holidays


There's probably a little too much truth here, but if the world's most interesting man can do it, so can I!

Snow Day!

Just when we were starting to think the big storm was going to miss us completely...it hit!  Today is a snow day and I'm planning on spending the day in my sewing room stitching up a storm!  Not only do I have numerous projects of my own to finish before Christmas, but yesterday I also agreed to finish a project for someone else before Christmas.  Less than 2 weeks...can I do it?

Blogging At Christmastime

Blogging at Christmastime is HARD!  I'm doing plenty of sewing, but nothing that I'll be able to show until after the holidays, so bare with me if posts are few and far between this month.  With that said, I can show these little stockings that I just finished for the granddog and grandcat.  Apparently Santa will leave treats for the good doggies and kitties if they have their own stockings to hang!  Who knew?

Singer 293B

Just look at what a little elbow grease, sewing machine oil, and carnauba wax can do!  I knew this machine had potential, but I never dreamed it would clean up this nicely.  Mechanically all it took was a little oil, new belt, needle, and a tension adjustment and it was sewing a beautiful straight stitch!

Flannel Finish!

The $5 bundle of flannel scraps that I bought last month has been turned into a nice cozy quilt!  It's the perfect quilt for a teen, so it will be donated to our local foster care program.
