One project down, two to start!

My projects keep multiplying but my free time seems to be halving. Gah! So this skirt is finally done! It basically took a year from receiving it. The facets pattern is great, but there are a lot of shapes to sew around and cut out. My next Alabama project will be to attempt airbrushing and… Continue reading One project down, two to start!

Open toe foot and the Case of the Secret Garden

Thanks to CotSG, I've actually tried some hybrid piecing, though on the hunters star first. I love the idea of being able to use both machine and hand piecing, BUT I have a preference for hand sewing. I love its precision and portability. I like watching TV while sewing quietly. On the other hand (haha!),… Continue reading Open toe foot and the Case of the Secret Garden
