I thought I was going to get one more sew on during National Sewing Month. Time slipped by and other things took priority. :-). Wish I had Columbus Day off, but we no longer get that one off. Too tired to show you the fabric. I'll post it when I'm able to get to it. See you soon! :-)

We doubled-down!

Got them done! Please ignore the terry cloth recants. I cleaned them off -just too lazy to take another pic. These were fun and I'm sure I'll be doing more soon! (PS: I closed the openings and got the terry cloth off after taking the pic).

This just hit: This is HORRIBLE

I was (and still will) going to post when I went to my feed and saw Peter's recent post: Paron's in NYC going out of business!

This is so sad:

Boy, I had no idea!

I had no idea (actually lost track) that it's been over 2 months since I last blog. Really need to get some sewing in. So many distractions even with the best of planning. Here's to hoping to get some in by the end of the this month! :-)

Almost forgot I even had a blog!

Just a quick hello and Happy Memorial Day (getting it in early in case I get busy). I hope you're able to get some sewing, R&R, and get some stuff done!

The Essential A-Line Review

Finally! Thanks for your patience. I have placed the link in the "Book Review" tab. See you soon!

Wednesday, April 6, 2016

Ya'll probably know


OK..I'm a little late (like 5 days, maybe?). Hancock's nationwide is closing. No biggie and not too surprised. Hoping not to sound cynical, but those that have been with me for a minute will remember my Spring 2012 post titled "This is terrible"(you can search it) when my neighborhood Hancock's closed.

It only takes one to create a ripple affect...sometimes. Some people in social media are snagging 80% sales...not so in the DVM. I guess they're holding out! Until next time, JC. (book review coming this weekend)

Coming soon: The Essential A-Line

Stay tuned for a detailed review!


My model man!

Got lil man to finally pose for me--although he wasn't quite cooperating! I enjoyed making these and may do a pair before the weekend is out!

Mission accomplished!

We did it! I had to totally find another PDF because the one I had...well, after I kept watching the video on how to piece the PDF pattern pieces together, it didn't work so I found one I could understand!  These will be for my baby nephew! May even do another pair since I have a long weekend.


Had to shift gears just slightly :-)

Friday, February 12, 2016

Repeat after me....!

This is (or will be) a long weekend for some. It will (for some) be a COLD weekend. I've already got something cut, now I need to take it to the next level!--which will be the next post. Until then, ta ta! :-)

Let it Snow! EDITED

Now sewing related, but I wanted to play with periscope. We had an early closing from work due to the snow that's now here & expected all weekend. So here's to my video. I'm still learning how to "scope." :-) NOTE: I'm not sure if the video below will play as I added it from blogger.

Here's the link from my you tube channel:

Another successful sew along!

Time flies from one sewing meet up till the next! We did pillowcases this time. I didn't "quite" finish, BUT I'll have it posted this weekend. :-). We had SEW much fun that most of us ran short on time!!

Last Sunday's sewing

I know, it's a week late, but work, finishing up some school work and under the weather for a couple of it is. I'm lovin fleece so the next few posts maybe, just maybe "all things fleecy).  Please forgive the pic quality. This was a "selfie" and you're looking at a fleece blanket for my toddler nephew

A Saturday Score: SEW Thankful

Lookie! I was able to snag some insane deals at Hancock's and JoAnn's over the Thanksgiving weekend: All things fleecy! You may see I got some fleece that looks like it's for kiddos...well, it is! I've been wanting to sew for my 22 month nephew and this fleece gives me a reason and an excuse! Check it out:

Wishing everyone in the US a Happy Thanksgiving. We all have so much to be thankful for!



Sew thankful to be able to get a little sewing in! Went to a sewing meet up a few days ago. We had a great time sewing fleece blankets which were donated to a local shelter. It was indeed a FUN-WAY to go!

New review added to our BOOK REVIEW Tab!


Wanna try before you buy?


Nothing new. If you're unsure about a sewing or crafting book and amazon doesn't provide any reviews or enough reviews, feedback, etc., go to your local library and check it out. I do this all of the time.

I even renew and if it's on the last renewal, I'll see if it's on a wait or hold list and if not, I'll get it again!

That way, if the book/DVD isn't a fit or doesn't flow for me, I can return in and I haven't wasted any money.

It's supposed to be...

Say what?! It's suppose to be my bloga (or blogo) versary month! It all started in October 2008 (never mind what my profile says..the correct start year is 2008).

Just hadn't been in a celebrating mood-also month a dear loved one passed last year and trying to study.

As always, I still come to thank each of you for hanging in there with me (my long time blogging BFF's) and everyone. Thank you sew much!
