sewing lessons

Recently, my wonderful friend Mary treated me to sewing lessons.  It couldn't have been more fun.  I used to sew when my kids were little.  Lots of dresses and baby blankies.  I've hardly had my sewing machine out in the last few years so it was good to have a refresher.

Accredited online colleges offer online sewing lessons that can teach you how to  use your sewing machine and create several different wonderful projects from it. 

We both agreed that you could get addicted to fabric just about as fast as you get addicted to yarn.

The Eiffel tower fabric is my fave... I got it at an amazing fabric store called Crafty Planet http://www.craftyplanet.com/  The brand is Timeless Treasures.

We cute 2 1/2 inch strips and made amazing quilt blocks.  My project isn't quite done, but I will show you the finished product soon.  We are making a table runner.

Happy Crafting!
