It felt like the Academy Awards….we had amazing food and left with a goody bag full of useful things!
New Age Auto Repair
3834 Main Street, Springfield
It’s a FREE event intended for women who are inspired to be more confident about car care. I had my car looked at by Nate, the owner, and he did a marvelous job of communicating and diagnosing the problems.
The event is going to be held on Saturday, October 24, 2015 from 2-4 pm. Sign up today on their website! Space is limited, so don’t wait too long. I think you will find Nate and Isabelle delightful business owners who are trying to do the right thing.
And happy quilting!
I found this cute project on Pinterest. And although it’s designed for a paper craft project, I thought it would look good in fabric too.
So in an afternoon (yes, you read that right!) I made it in the form of a wall hanging. How was I able to make it so quickly? Well, it was all iron-on applique using scrappy assorted black fabrics. There is no blanket stitching around the edges (way too time consuming at this point in my life!). Bing! And no quilting. I just made a “pillow case” type sandwich and inside out it went. Bang! Stitched around the edges to hold it. Boom! I even added in the hanging sleeve when I made the sandwich so I didn’t have to sew it on later. And of course there was no binding to do because it was turned inside out. Then my hubby cut me a thin piece of wood to go inside the hanging sleeve so I could bring it to work and hang it there (that only took about 5 minutes)! Done!
Sometimes I even amaze myself. Bing. Bang. Boom. Done! Happy Halloween!
