Sewing Challenge – Winner!

I can hardly believe it, but I’ve won the Extreme Makeover sewing challenge!  I was up against some pretty talented ladies!  Thanks to everyone for your support over the last six weeks! (well….seven weeks….we had two weeks for this last challenge.)  I definitely think I’ve stretched myself as a seamstress and I am so happy with…

One UFO Flies Away….

   I have completed my first UFO of the year!  I had grand plans to finish one of the big quilts this month, but after opening the shop and then making the top and the dress, I found the month was quickly getting away from me!  So I chose a small UFO to finish.  It…
