A Sewing Room “Don’t”

May I suggest to you that it is never a good idea to REACH AROUND your hot iron!!! I think this burn will surely leave a scar for years to come…

Today I am fighting with…er, I mean working with Photoshop on a cover for my Leahbelle’s Garden quilt pattern. I am having trouble getting the colors of the quilt to print in their “true” colors. I am also planning a design for a Halloween quilt and heading to the store to buy one of those adorable Vera Bradley agenda books. I have no resistance when it comes to Vera Bradley items and I sure could use an agenda about now. I’ve got all these ideas swimming around and I need one place to keep everything organized.

I am happy to announce that next December I will have another Christmas wall hanging in McCalls. This is the one I’ve been working on for the last few weeks. I wish I could show you all but you’ll have to wait until the magazine comes out!

Happy Quilting today, I hope you are all super productive!
