Another short one this week. I'm rather down and out as I'm suffering with shingles. I've never had it before and I'm in a fair amount of pain and discomfort with it, as well as being really tired the last few days since the rash came out. I honestly wouldn't wish it on anyone! I'm… Continue reading Christmas Gifts
A short but sweet blog post this week.

What happens if I get all the threads tangled? ARGGHH! I mean I could go on and on with these… Continue reading Get To Know Your Sewing Machine
