I e3`


Hmm...well, I was trying to write a blog post, but the kitty found the cursor and my typing to be very fascinating and decided she needed a blog of her own, so she took over.  The title and beginning line were her work.  I think perhaps we should leave the blogging to the humans.

Anyway, I haven't been doing a whole lot of sewing lately.  I suppose I've been preparing for a little children's Christmas program thing at church, researching getting a new car, getting a new car, and finishing reading this book.
I like my new-to-me car.  I got rid of a van that was getting worse by the minute and making me really dislike it. 
I enjoyed reading the book and have been asked to write a review, so I'll have to do that soon. 

Since Tuesday is supposed to be Technique or Tool Tuesday and I have obviously not been figuring out EQ7 (during Christmas break - it's a plan!), maybe I'll mention the Sewline Glue Pen.  I don't think I've mentioned it on the blog.  I did a presentation to the Des Moines Modern Quilt Guild on English Paper piecing and discovered that I love this glue pen for holding the fabric onto the little shaped cardstock pieces.  Well, I won a little mini charm pack (which is a stack of 2.5 inch squares) of Architextures so I was thinking that I might wrap those little squares around some hexagons and see what happens.  If there is any interest, maybe I'll take pictures as I do the steps of English Paper Piecing and have a sort of mini-tutorial on using the glue stick and paper piecing. 

Otherwise, I have cut up a bunch of red and green fabric in the hope that I will sew them together into Christmas stockings, following this pattern and a tree skirt or rather, tree pants, following this tutorial very soon...like this week.  :)

I haven't shared anything from the Bible in a while either, so I'd like to do that soon, too. 

Okay, I'll try to remember that I have a blog now.

  1. Yes, you have a blog, and it seems kitty does too. Interesting stuff going on in your life. What kind of car did you settle on?


Oh, hey, here's where you can leave a comment. It will make me feel happy.
