Sometimes it is sooo much fun to just pick up fabric strips Willy Nilly and SEW.

At the end of this video I even sew on my old treadle machine. I LOVE it!!

SEWINGS!! Paper Piecing. I love it…do you?

Paper Piecing

Paper Piecing Demo

I’m taking a class in South Carolina…it’s called “Row of the Month”.  It’s taught by my good buddy, Rachel.  Anyhoooooo, several of the ladies were having trouble remembering how to paper piece so I decided to make them (and me) a video.  Have you ever heard the saying that the best way to learn something is to teach it?  Well…. that’s what I’m doing here for all of us.

Just wondering… do YOU love to paper piece? I do!!!

Success! Cricut Vinyl and Dishwasher Test!

Do you recall that the other day I did a test using the regular Cricut vinyl (631 type) and said I would test it in the dishwasher for you?  Well, I did it and it WORKED PERFECTLY.

I have washed both of my test mugs by hand and in the dishwasher AND they still look as good as new!  If you’re not sure of the test, check out a previous post here, my YouTube Channel or my BRAND NEW FACEBOOK GROUP.

If you want to see what vinyl I used,  please click my affiliate link to check it out! I can wholeheartedly vouch for the vinyl and the light transfer tape for this application.

Quilting and Cricut Cardmaking

Today was a lot of fun quilting AND Cricut cardmaking!

The day started with my good buddy, Rachel, coming over! She and I love to get together to work on quilts!  Today was no exception.  We worked on our Blocks of the Week projects.  I got two blocks done and Rachel got three. HUMP. LOL

After working on our blocks, I went back to my Cricut machine and Design Space.  I created  a brand new video on using what we get in Cricut Access in order to create a NEW item.   I took a card that was designed as a Mother’s Day card and turned it into a Valentine’s Day card.  I don’t know about you, but it makes me so happy to use what I already have.  Check out the video below to see how easy it is!!

I LOVE MY CRICUT.

BTW, if you’d like to see some of the photos from today’s quilting, please check out my Facebook page.

Also, I would really appreciate it if you’d share my YouTube channel across social media and like it…if you do 🙂

Zig Pen Glue Stick to the rescue….no kidding!!!!
I have been using rulers that I have coated with the Zig glue for several months now and LOVE them!! No more ruler slippage for moi.
