Oh dear, how did THAT get in there?
Curiouser and Curiouser...
Stay tuned for a GIVEAWAY, it's just a little farther down
the rabbit hole...
Oh, my. That looks delicious, but I can't eat that!
Maybe just a nibble of this while I wait for tea:
Imagine this! Someone dropped these things. Would you like to have them? Just leave a comment for me, and I'll choose someone when the party is over (and I plan to party until Sunday at midnight!).
Another one! In the Lovelace China, no less. What do we do?
The cakes are done, and we have no tea!
Lemon glaze with a sprinkle of pink.. to put the rose in your cheeks and a twinkle in your eye....
"Why is a raven like a writing desk" you ask? I think that would be easier to puzzle out than finding a tea cup in this place...

One problem... it's WAY more pink that I pictured in my head. I mean... REALLY pink. For some reason I thought the yellow and purple/blue would play a larger role, lol.

How long have you had it?
How much does that machine cost (approximately)?
What types of things do you sew (i.e. quilting, clothing, handbags, home dec projects, etc.)?
How much do you sew? How much wear and tear does the machine get?
Do you like/love/hate your machine? Are you ambivalent? Passionate? Does she have a name?
What features does your machine have that work well for you?
Is there anything that drives you nuts about your machine?
Do you have a great story to share about your machine (i.e., Found it under the Christmas tree? Dropped it on the kitchen floor? Sewed your fingernail to your zipper?, Got it from your Great Grandma?, etc.!)? We want to hear it!
Would you recommend the machine to others? Why?
I would recommend this machine to others who might not want to spend too much, and still get something that works well.
What factors do you think are important to consider when looking for a new machine?
For me, I don't really need all the fancy stitches (they are fun, I know, I just don't NEED them). This machine only has 14 stitches. I just want something that works consistently, smoothly, and won't break down.
Do you have a dream machine?
I would love to have a really, really old vintage Singer... just to play with. :)

I keep finding homes for these before I can even list them in the shop. So... I'm working on a whole batch to list all at once, hopefully before the end of the week. This one is 18-24 months.

I have a very difficult time picking fabric combinations. I scan the bolts in the material shop and find THE perfect main fabric for my next project.. but then it all falls apart. I cannot pick coordinating patterns or colors to save my life.
I'm always drawn to blue.. no matter how hard I try to match that pink and green floral, I always end up back in the blue section. I've tried scanning fabric websites and printing out eye catching fabric combos (like a cheat sheet of ideas).. then trying to mimic the styles and colors when I go to purchase fabrics. Nope. I always come home with single yards of novelty prints with nothing to match them, or blue tones.
I think I get overwhelmed with all the color and prints. I think maybe I just don't have the knack. How am I ever going to make my first quilt if I can't coordinate fabrics? :b
Anyone else have this problem? Like writer's block for seamstresses....

(p.s.) Photos coming soon of a new bag, key keepers, and wallets.. AFTER they arrive at thier destinations. Happy Mother's Day!
