My Summer Priject

I just could not help myself!
Look what I bought.

What do you mean I have a fabric store?
Is that suppose to stop me from buying fabric?
I think not!!

Once again this will all be done by hand. 
I will piece it and quilt it.
It will be my take along project.

Thank You

What a kind world the blogging world is! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your emails, your cards, your thoughts and your prayers these last few days, or has it been weeks. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you, all of YOU!
And oh, how it helped.
God Bless You

I have not done a lot of sewing the last few weeks but I did want to make a couple of pillowcases for the grand-babies.
I totally forgot how!

Then I remembered all the wonderful tutorials on

In Memorium

Just a quick note.
I lost my younger brother this weekend. (age 44)
Pending autopsy results we will not know why for months.
I have so many things to do to settle his estate. I will not be blogging or blog hopping for a few months. 
The things that will keep me going will be my family and loved ones.
Silly as is sounds I will keep open my store as my brother was a computer genius and he was so proud of me and how this little Soccer Mom (he would call me) could open a store and run a business for years.
This will keep my mind and hands busy.
Prayers are so welcome.
I will be back, I just need some time to process.
Bless you all.
Please to not be offended but comments are closed.

Love, Jane

Mug Rugs are so much fun! You can try all new kinds of of techniques!
So, once again, I tried my hand at machine quilting.
I made this pastel mug rug.  Of course, I needed a spot for the mug!  And I found this pretty trim that was my Mothers, I loved using her trim. This one sits right next to me and my computer. The decision has been made to leave the machine quilting to the experts.
 I am a hand quilter and will always be. 
But I am at peace with that!!

Next, I wanted to try this tool,
The Little Twister

OK, this is FUN!!
I made this mug rug in my new favorite color combination,
orange and lime green.
I also did some stitching around the pinwheels with my 
I love this one! This is a tool I will definitely use again.

Lastly, this is something I showed you a few weeks ago!

And, this is what I made with these hexies.

Hexies are so relaxing. I love to work on them while watching a good movie!
I see many projects in my future with hexies.

How about you?
Would you like a set of my hexies?

Just leave me a comment and I will pick a winner, sometime!

Happy sewing!
