Admittedly it took me a bit longer to get this done than I had anticipated (When doesn't it? LOLLL) BUT....that is only because I want to make sure the pattern is the best I can get it! One thing is for sure....I could NOT do that without the help of all my wonderful pattern testers AND my proof reader extraordinaire, Rochelle! Almost all of the testers had trouble getting the eyelets....That was my fault as I didn't give them enough... Read more →

Firstly....thank you to everyone for all your wonderful name suggestions for my shortly to be released cross the body bag! Each and every suggestion was very MUCH appreciated and WOW...there were soooo many great names to choose from that my daughters and I spent the best part of the afternoon trying to narrow the choices down to just ONE! NOT an easy task! (But still a better one than my flicking the pages of a names book and choosing the... Read more →

Oh I have to admit I am pleased I am not the only one who enjoys the company of their cat (or cats! LOL) while sewing! They are so wonderful to have around, most of the time! They are mostly quiet....I say mostly because my cat MEOWS rather LOUDLY when he wants food....which seems to be every hour of the day (and night! LOL)....for a small cat, he has a mighty ferocious appetite! Mind you....I am NOT happy about the... Read more →
