I am back in action sewing! It’s been a long weary year. We had a close friend who recently passed away from fighting a rare genetic cancer.
I put my business on the back burner as well as all his other friends had to help him with all his needs for the past 8 months. We all wanted to spend as much quality time with him before he left for a better place. He now is no longer in pain and I am sure is watching over us.
So I apologize for not being around much on this blog. I have started a few new designs to be made into new sewing patterns. Will be cutting and sewing and perfecting, then creating more patterns.
One show over and now a few more to go!

Have you ever heard of the magazine called “Mary Jane’s Farm” ? Me neither!!!! My friend brought it over the other day to show me some sewing ideas in it.
It’s a cool organic lifestyle magazine that has articles on how to make interesting dishes to eat, how to guide on crafty ideas and home and garden help.
I liked the article in the volume 10 #5 edition on recycling a vintage wool coat into a cute little heirloom teddy bear! AND it also gives you a link to a website to be able to donate your creations to children in homeless shelters, hospitals and to paramedics who keep them on hand and give them children in need of emergency comfort! Excellent idea!
Here is the site if you are crafty and want to donate handmade dolls and stuffed animals.
Check it out!
