Sewing is a lot like life...sure, there are patterns for just about everything, but in order to love what you do, or love what you make, you have to change the pattern to make it your own regardless if the change is a fraction of an inch or the length of a yard. And more often that not, those choices you make to change the pattern do not work out exactly the way you hope. It can be frustrating and challenging, and sometimes you have have to rip it all apart at the seams and start completely over. Which requires patience. A lot of patience. But in doing so, you create something that is far more rewarding, and far more beautiful, then what you started with.

Fun little gifts

I love making fun little gifts and these quilted coasters are no exception.  Another tried and true, I've blogged about them before here.   They make a great housewarming or hostess gift.  I made these just recently as a housewarming gift for a friend moving to Tulsa: 

I love the black and bright pink!

At Christmas time, I slipped a few sets like the ones above into some bags of baked holiday treats I delivery to friends and they were a hit!   So fun for a play room, a sun room or even a craft room!

  1. I barely find time to shop for the things my house needs, let alone things that someone else would want...LET ALONE for the material to MAKE something someone else would want! You amaze me.
