Wednesday Wardrobe Hint

Polar Fleece Pillow Bed – Saga and Solutions

One of those 'hour long Quickie Projects', right?  Yep - or so I thought.  Conclusion - perhaps out of a cotton, or a sheet - something that 'slides' on itself and is accurate to work with, but NOT with Polar Fleece.  That was more like a 3 hour challenge I am sorry to admit.  Oh well - hopefully sharing my saga in this Blog will save YOU time. Alas,  dear

Design Opinion: Comments Appreciated…

A new magazine arrived in the mail yesterday and these 2 pictures hit this Grandma over the head regarding design.  For what it's is my opinion regarding appropriate prints in garments..... If you ask yourself the questions I state above, my answers would be: Left Photo:  I ONLY see the dress.  I feel one should dress to flatter the person - NOT to show off the dress.  Which, after

I sew....creatively to challenge myself.  For an experience.  To conquer and achieve a garment that is ONE-OF-A-KIND! I was delighted to find the Yada Sisterhood - a wonderful monthly, uplifting and spiritual Christian experience with other women here in my new town of Jackson, TN.  At my first meeting (yes, I went in alone and was totally welcomed...)
