I apologize for the lack of posts, I’ve been trying to be more “fit” and active lately. So I’ve started to take some line dancing classes, an extra zumba class here and there, and even ran 5 MILES in a little over an hour!! I did not run the 5 miles by choice, per say. Lol A close friend invited me to “jog” with him, … Continue reading Mug-rugs! 🙂
Woo-hoo!! My very first machine quilted quilt DONE! 🙂 I took the easy route and quilted diagonal lines across the whole thing, I’m very happy with the end result! After I basted this quilt (you can read about that here) , I had initially wanted to hand quilt it. I was doing a simple X, from corner to corner, in each square. But with many … Continue reading Baby quilt : Machine quilting DONE!!
I have had my hands tied since Friday, resulting in very few posts. Sorry about that! But as you will see, I didn’t even have time to sew this Labor Day weekend. I suppose it’s a blessing in disguise because I really have been lacking sleep due to sewing until 4am. So this weekend was definitely my weekend off, I even scored on some deals … Continue reading My NO-SEW Labor Day Weekend: Sewing machine “repair”, LA County Fair and a sale at Joann’s !!

Am I the only one with baby fever … Continue reading My new and IMPROVED Crafty Room! 🙂 Peg-walls and all!
This is a quilt that I’ve been “working on” since June… Lol After finishing my first hand quilted kitty quilt, I decided to make quilts for my family too. So this one is for my little sister, it’s a Boxed Squares quilt using a pastel jelly roll from Joan’s. I decided to make this quilt bigger, instead of making 10 rows of 8 squares , … Continue reading A quilt for my sister- “Boxed Squares”

I found SewVac Ltd. when I started my quilting and sewing journey; they offer a No-Sweat Summer Sewing Series, taught by Miss-Oh-so-talented Linda Jones! 🙂 She was one of the first people who welcomed me when I walked into SewVac , and her positivity and encouragement in contagious! I aspire to take more classes and lectures to learn more about quilting and sewing! Coincidently enough, … Continue reading No-Sweat Summer Sewing Series:TOTE BAG! *Part 1*
I was walking around the quilt festival and came across Cheryl Ann’s Design Wall booth and just knew I had to have one of these in my crafty room! It’s such a neat concept: an easy to build stand, slip in a flannel piece of fabric, and with the slanted design, it holds your pieces of fabric! Maybe it’s just me wanting to simplify the … Continue reading Cheryl Ann’s Design Wall: A Must-Have in your Crafty Room! 🙂
I had the pleasure to attend the Iron Quilter’s Challenge, during the quilt festival at the Long Beach Convention Center, and it was UNFORGETTABLE !!

Be part of a … Continue reading The Iron Quilter’s Challenge !!

Luckily, I got ALMOST everything that I wanted. I was glad to have gone to yesterdays preview … Continue reading The Quilt Festival day two: I bought some goodies! 🙂
