Although I have cut back in some areas of sewing, the reviews, messages and cards that I receive from clients, makes me feel appreciated for the gift of sewing that God has blessed me with. For me, it is a sign that I am serving where I need to serve. Here are some messages I received over the last two days, in response to some masks that were shipped out, and now being worn with delight.  Of course, no one ever thought that masks would become part of our wardrobe, but it happened. It is temporary, but I truly hope that people continue to showRead More →

Therapy Neck Pillows are now completed. I only made a handful of them, as my plan was to make them for my own personal needs as well as some for the family. Yet, with inquiries, I made a few extra, and depending on the response I will possibly make more.

It allows me to do the same treatment daily before and after exercises, due toRead More →

With the decision to create more due to various reasons, in addition to sewing, I will be doing a bit more crochet. This here is my 3rd afghan for 2021 and will be gifted to our middle daughter Holly, who will soon be delivering our 2nd grandson.

Starting in 2021 my goal is to be CREATIVELY FOCUSED: What does this mean? My focus going forward will return to my roots of sewing with pleasure and joy, creating from inspiration. In doing so, I will be creating more with materials on hand along with repurposing. I will occasionally create products to sell, that will be available to the general public, yet I will not become a mass producer unless I enjoy making the product. I will showcase them here on my site and social media, with the possibility of selling in other venues which is to be determined.You will be able to see availableRead More →

As a misc. item, I have added some homemade soap to my site, made with natural ingredients. Each bar individually comes with its own burlap, cotton-tie-closure bag, appropriate for gift giving as well as displayed on your shelf until ready to use.  Due to the sensitive nature of my skin, I transitioned away from OTC soaps, to create and provide soaps that are natural, not using pharmaceutical grade glycerin. The natural glycerin found in these soaps are derived from the process of soap making. All soaps that are currently made, are done via a cold process and are made using: Organic shea butter, olive oil,Read More →
