Many, many people have asked me if I could help them find the instruction manual for the Brother Window-Matic sewing machine. Well, today I am very pleased to say — I’ve got it!

After much consultation and re-arranging of blocks, my daughter and I have decided that her quilt blocks should be organised in rows of colour like a rainbow.  I don’t remember learning any childhood rhymes in Texas to learn the colours in order, but in England my children say Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain.

In 2016, I’m going to try sewing totally from my stash of fabrics.  Just for fun, to see if I can actually do it for a whole year.  And maybe use it all up!  My teenager is doing a Textiles course in high school, and she is going to help me use as much fabric […](image)

My lovely niece Hannah is getting married in July.  She lives far away, and I don’t get to see her very often.  I was very touched to learn that she still uses a quilt that I made for her when she was a little girl.     Hannah asked me to make a quilt as […](image)

Our older daughter was married last weekend.  It’s been a busy time with preparations, and I was able to use my home sewing skills to make some special things for the big day.   🙂 My daughter liked this style of ring pillow, so I made this one for her: We purchased our bride’s wedding […](image)
