A Couch Caddy

My dear friend LIZ has started an 11 months “SewingRoom SewAlong” to motivate her quilt group and blogging friends to make all the sewing related items, we have on our want-to-do-lists but hardly ever get around to do. For each month there is a different theme. I probably won’t manage to do all eleven items, but I sewed along in January and made the couch caddy. For the pincushion I used one of my favorite sewing graphics from THE GRAPHICS FAIRY. Thank you, Karen! If you like to sew along…

A Beautiful Place

"You can't really say what is beautiful about a place, but the image of the place will remain vividly with you." ~Tadao Ando Happy New Year!!! The tragedy of this wonderful thing called technology is that sometimes (or oftentimes) it breaks down. I have been without a computer for a few weeks now and I apologize for the long silence. I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's. I certainly did! I was pondering what I love about Christmas because I am always sad to see it…

The ones you see today are offered up on my website... I've never done a tutorial on how I make mine, but I…
