Snaps and Scraps

I haven't gotten much sewing or even free motion quilting done this week other than the customer table topper I showed on Monday. I have been working on a piece with decorative stitching similar to the Stupendous Stitching that Carol Ann Waugh does in her class at Craftsy and in the book, Stupendous Stitching

Mine's not as awesome as hers, having no hand-stitching or much couching. It's a sample for a class on using decorative stitches that I'm teaching in Lynchburg this Saturday with a fun group of gals.


This past weekend, we set off to see an old steam train pulled out of the Virginia Transportation Museum. While we were there, I did some shopping in Barnes and Noble and loaded up on magazines. (BnN is one of my 4yo's favorite places because of the train table they have in the children's section.)


I had read online about folks loving Burda Style magazine and of course there's a lot of buzz about the Generation Q Magazine , so I got that too. Loved them! I really appreciated that there were even a few patterns in the Burda magazine that would fit my huggable self. The other magazines were good, but not total love. Got a book on sergers too, since I'm learning to use them. Some great projects in it.



Tomorrow, I am taking the farm quilt to meet it's new owner (and farmer girl). I loved working on it, but I am glad to be done with it and getting it to it's new home.

After my class this Saturday, it's time to finish the table topper. Then on to something new! (or finish another something....)

  7. The recipient was blown away! She had been told it was farm themed, and had visions of a bunch of pink pigs and green tractors.

    1. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but not the look we were going for ;-)
