And Now for Something Completely Different – 2KCBWDAY5

About me through photos…

And finally…. ME (just much, much smaller)


Sewing pretty

My mother-in-law very generously gifted our household with a new sewing machine over the Christmas holidays. It’s a beautiful Janome Magnolia and I love it dearly. I made a quick cover for our newest addition as my first project of the New Year. First, I have to show off Maggie. What do you think?


I started with a charm pack of 5 1/2″ squares, sewing the pieces together in a 3 x 5 pattern.

I chose a coordinating fabric for the border and the back.

After sewing the front and back pieces together, I attached a decorative ribbon on the side to tie the pieces together and provide a little extra touch.
