Fab Shop Hop

I joined the FabShop Hop a virtual shopping adventure today.  I’m a little late in the game but still going to hop around.  I am excited to find some new fabric stores with great material.  Come and join the hop with me.

This has been going on for eleven years! Why did it take so long to stumble upon it?  Quilters, sewers, crafters, and fabric lovers have been shopping and hopping for the chance to win fabulous prizes.

What you do, search of the “youfoundit” bunny not to mention all the fabrics, patterns, tools, plus more in their soon-to-be-favorite quilt and fabric shops!

KCWC Day 6: Teaching daughter to sew

My daughter has a sewing machine that she got from her aunt a few years back.  Lately it hasn’t been working well for her.  I happen to go to my local fabric store and they had a sale on sewing machines.  I decided to surprised my girls with it all set up and ready to use after school.  When I got home from work she requested that I teach her to sew the shorts that I was going to make her today. So today I made a pattern for her, and helped to trace the pattern onto her fabric and sew it together on her new sewing machine.  She was so excited she was tell her sister that she wanted to make her something.  She also said “Mom why aren’t you an artist?” he-he  gotta love looking through kids eyes.
