I just wanted to share a photo of what makes my heart light. Riley is 10 months old now, but these photos of her 9th month are so precious to me. Her mama is in the top left one. Grandma love is something else!
I learned a zipper trick online. Have you ever unzipped the slider right off the end of the zipper? Well, you can use a regular dinner fork and insert the slider face down between two of the tines. It holds it nice and steady so that you can feed the z
I don't know how many of you Cuties suffer with depression, but today it is really kicking my tail. I have chronic daily migraine and neuropathy in my legs which causes great pain when walking. I have't felt like sewing or embroidery in weeks. I try
I've read several posts on here about the loss of a precious life. I wanted to share one idea that I've used several times in my "circle". I've used a purchased throw (I keep several on hand and purchase them usually on clearance after Christmas)
I was reading some posts on a sewing forum, and one lady was talking about using cork fabric. She had some photos, and it looks beautiful. So I searched for cork fabric, and the first (and only) site that I looked at has cork fabric for $120 per yard!!

Just wanted to say thank you to all those people who give great directions for projects or embroidery designs, or anything else on this site. I've recently bought a sewing pattern, and the directions were terrible. And if you go to that person's websi
Fabric buyers--I found the greatest buys on fabric online at Hancocks-Paducah.com. The yard cuts were generous, and the price was terrific--I got 5 yards of fabric for $20.95, including shipping. Now I look there often.
I tried to make lemonade scones yesterday. My dough was a sticky mess, but I made a dozen lumps of dough on the pan. For some reason, I decided to sprinkle the tops with a tiny bit of sugar. They look terrible, but taste really good. Thanks for the re
I shared on here before about my first grandchild being born in May. Well, in our church family, another baby was also born in May--this baby weighed only 20 ounces, and had spent his entire life in the NICU. That baby passed away yesterday. I'm goin
I am so aggravated. I had made a big effort to not purchase designs from sites that might violate copyright, and i thought I had done that. I am kind of disgusted with myself that a site that I had just purchased a cute children's design from has blata
