For whatever reason, I have the sewing bug. I got started looking at online sewing patterns. There are some really beautiful ones out there. I just can't bring myself to spend $10-20 or even more for the rights to print on my own paper using my own in
I wanted to share what I have chosen as my goal this next year. I hope I can develop this habit. This is a quote from a designer's email newsletter. I'm not sure I can share the name, but this message is so great that I wanted all of us to read it. H
I have wanted to make my two daughters something that they can hang on to, and haven't managed to do it until this year. I made them each a set of pillowcases, and I used the same design, only with different colors. One daughter is a redhead, and her c
I have a design that I would like to add something to, and I have no clue how to do it. Basically, I would like to add a zig-zag stitch on the outside of a seam, like a finishing edge. I use PE Design Next, Can anyone help me ? Thank you in advance.
May I ask those of you who pray to pray for my mom? Her name is Virginia, and she is a four year colon cancer survivor. This year, her tumor marker number has been rising, and two PET scans have shown nothing. My siblings and I, as well as my mom, are

Lately, I seem to be obsessed with zipper bags. Now I've found a design with a top zipper, and also a welt zipper in the front. The design is from A Creative Medley, and I didn't see any problem with copyright. I've attached a photo of the bag, and
May I ask for a prayer request? My mom, 87, is a colon cancer survivor. I take her back to the oncologist for follow-up appointments regularly. She has to have a blood test done each time, for a CEA tumor marker number. It is supposed to be in the low
I just watched a video of how to make a flat-bottomed zipper bag. It's from Starfish Designs, and I looked at every design and didn't see any that violated any copyright, so I think it is ok to post the link. Here's the video link. https://www.youtu
I lost a friend last evening. It hurts. I knew it was coming, but it was too soon. I know I will see my friend again someday. I also know that this hurt I feel will ease in time. It makes me more thankful for all the people in my life, so a big thank
My pastor and his wife are the proud grandparents of twin girls. I showed his wife my photos of Sue's smockfrock and we cooked up a scheme. I did the embroidery work on my machine at home, and she did the side seams and hems on her machine. Now her gra
I just had to share my treasure--from Sewforless.com. They came last night after being ordered Monday. The colors look like candy to me, and I can't wait to play with them and compare them to my other threads. On the very top of the home page, the
