Life Travels to Fast, Enjoy it!

 Hello Friends, I have been away but for very good reasons. Last October   I found out I had grade 1 invasive ductal carcinoma, stage 1A breast cancer. It is curable and treatable. I am ok! However, that is because we found it early. Please make sure you check yourself and if you find something do not wait. Put your health first and get a 3D mammogram!   I found these socks on Amazon and loved wearing them to radiation. I also took my band to Disney World. We had a blast performing down there in the Imagination Workshop Campus and of course, riding all of the rides at Disney and Epcot. This summer I have been relaxing and starting a new adventure with Poshmark. Poshmark is a website that lets you post listings for free and they get paid when you get paid. I have started to place items in my shop.  I would love for you to follow my store. A buyer can make an offer on an item and the seller can counter it or accept your offer. I have had great experiences as a buyer and so I signed up t

Teenage Dress Dreams

Going dress shopping can be absolutely painful. I have two beautiful girls but finding a dress for a special event is super challenging. The right shape, price and color sometimes is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. That is why when my daughter showed me the design she wanted I told her to let me make a mock up dress and perhaps make her formal dress for the dance.  Looking for a dress. We did go dress shopping but in the age of COVID, it is completely different. I always start my shopping with my teenagers with food. That's right we either go to Starbucks to get coffee and a sweet treat or eat lunch first. It is imperative to eat so we are not moody or sluggish. We had lunch at a beautiful French restaurant called Coquette Brasserie at North Hills . If you are in Raleigh, NC I highly recommend it.  After lunch we hopped over to Crabtree Mall. We looked in Belk and in Macy's. I was crazy! There were mothers who found an employees bathroom that they were using as a dr

Chevron Quilt

If you are new to quilting you should give this one a try. It is the chevron quilt . To make it even easier purchase a layered cake of quilting squares precut in 10" blocks . I love the magic of sewing the 10" squares right sides together first all long all four sides. Then cut the block from corner to corner making wonderful triangles. Rearrange the triangles to create this chevron pattern. I was given this fabric years ago. Really it so ugly to me I had tried to throw it out several times. However,  like books, I have an extremely hard time throwing out fabric. I know that if I can find the right project every fabric has a use.  Once I saw the chevron quilt I knew that this was the right project for this fabric. I bought a twin size batting piece and cut it in half for a throw blanket,  My favorite part of quilting is playing with the color variations. I have seen rainbow bands of color as well as a mix of prints and designs. Can you use this quilting technique for other q

Hubble Bubble Cardigan Pattern

Have you ever seen a pattern that you don't know how you will create it because you have never made anything like it before? You click to buy and then you start to panic because you don't know if you will ever make it. This is exactly how I felt when I bought the Hubble Bubble Knitting pattern from Kat and Leni.  I had seen it all over Instagram and I loved the design. I knew how to knit but I had never made bubbles, what are bubble sleeves? What have I done? Buyers Remorse! After buying the pattern the next logical step is to buy the yarn. I researched The Wool by We Are Knitters because this was the only yarn the pattern recommends and I had sticker shock! One ball of yarn was between $24- $30 dollars per 200 g. This pattern calls for 1200g so that equaled between $144- $180 for one sweater. Don't get me wrong this is beautiful yarn but I am a teacher and there is no way I would spend that much on one sweater. Apparently, I am not alone because I found this cheat sheet f
