Where have I been?  ...teaching school, selling online, taking care of Mom, attempting to keep up with the actress daughter..BUSY!

I miss blogging about my sewing ventures, so I'm jumping back in as of right now!

I have stuck my toe into the scary waters of craft-show-vendor--at least it was scary to me. Like any unknown territory. But--it's so much fun sharing my love of crafting and repurposing with like-minded folk.

That said--this Saturday, April 18, I will be in Minden, Louisiana for the 14th annual Scottish Tartan Festival. I have more inventory made up than usual, so I am curious to see what appeals to these kilt-loving merry-makers.




No piece of paper is safe from my experimentation--sheet music, cookie wrappers, vintage maps, tea bags, pop bottle labels....anything with happy colors and fun design!

Repurposed Zipper Pouches

Sewing time is at a premium right now.Between moving my daughter to North Carolina and moving my Mom to a retirement center, not much spare time to keep the Bernina busy!

But, I am sneaking into the sewing room to whip up a quick repurposed zipper pouch or two once in a while.  To see all my repurposed (and some new) creations, go to my store at

Remember Andy Capp?

O.K.--this is an age indicator, but Andy Capp was a character in the Sunday comics back in "the day". I couldn't pass up this bag...
Now it can hold more important things than chips!
