I love making gifts for others, but I find it hard to find handmade gifts to make for the men in my life. What is something practical that they would use? What can I use to make a gift that isn’t cheesy? I’m all about the marriage of utility and beauty when I make anything, […]

    Love the wallet and the cork you used. The initials are a great added touch. I have a grandson that would think it is super special to have a wallet like that. Very well written.ReplyCancel

If you’ve been reading my blog for a long time, perhaps you will remember the Holiday Craft Bash from several years back. I made these incredible stockings that were embellished with a host of hand stitches and embroidered with our names.  Using the same tutorial, I updated our stockings. Our family was growing, and it […]

  • Super cute! Is this the chair you may recover one day? ReplyCancel

    • Haha, yes! It’s my side of the road special. I had such grand intentions of reupholstering when I got it, but at 8-9 months pregnant I think I got too ambitious. I have the fabric, I just need to DO it. :) ReplyCancel

I have been waiting to write this blog post for a while now! I’m so excited. Janome reached out to me two months ago to see if I would like to try out their new M100 machine, which is Anna Maria Horner’s limited edition machine. Without any hesitation, I agreed! I’ve been using Janome machines […]

    Hi, thanks for the review! I have a question about this machine. I know it comes with a 1/4 inch foot and I know you can move the needle to the right from the 3.5 center position to a 4. Does that give you a good scant 1/4 inch seam or does the needle move a bit too much? I tested one today and didn’t have a ruler to measure that scant seam. I love the thread cutter!ReplyCancel

    • @christine.higgins hi there! So I am obsessed with this machine. I get a perfect 1/4″ on the machine. I do not use the 1/4″ foot- I actually use the A foot on 3.5 position or the walking foot on 4 or 4.5″. The tension on the machine is perfect every single time I use it. If I can answer any other questions please feel free to ask. ReplyCancel

I was recently asked to make a bolster sized pillow based on these potholders I made which were based on the Orimono Pillow from Anthropologie from several years back.  I LOVE the look of this pillow- this style of anything really. Visually, I feel like its just a treat to the eyes. You can see […]

I’m a day late showing off the mini I received as part of the mini quilt swap I chatted about on Tuesday. Without further ado: Isn’t it AMAZING?! Mary from Molly Flanders and Sunny Day Supply made this mini with me in mind, and she could not have done a better job. These pieces are tiny! […]
