Tiny Tulip Block Zipper Pouch


The joy of a finish is extra gratifying, when it's made from fabric scraps!

Tote Worthy

The concealed zipper pocket on the front of the tote offers secure storage for any valuables I'm carrying, while being easily accessible. 

 Yesterday, I spent a satisfying afternoon sewing a lovely new tote bag for myself, from a design by Svetlana Sotak, from her book: That Handmade Touch.

Summer Sewing Vintage Style



My love of vintage has come into full play.  I decided that for our four month stay on the mountain for the summer, I wanted to use my vintage Singer Featherweight for my sewing, rather than set up my (much larger and modern) Janome Horizon. I settled on setting up in a corner of the living room, with a lovely forested view.

Better than candy!

Free motion quilting on my latest finish - the quilt I made as a sampler using blocks sewn over the course of a year in the online Pink Bee. 


It seems like it was just a breath ago that I joined my first ever quilt bee and  began sewing with newly made online friends,  in the #pinkbee2019 (you can see more under this hashtag on Instagram).  Now, to my great delight, I have a finished sampler quilt, filled with beautiful pink fabrics and sweet memories!

Saving Fabric Scraps

My latest batch of note cards made from my scrap stash of fabric! 

 The simple practice of keeping my scraps has given me the pleasure of creating many one-of-kind projects, through the years - from quilts and zipper pouches, right down to cute little note cards.
