About my header

My shed is my header by my son Darrell, He painted the Robin for me and said that it reminded him of me. Because Robins use other birds nest and if there is an egg in it, they will take care of it just like its their own. He said thats what I do, I have always taken care of others in need of a home when I come across someone in need. Isnt that Sweet, I had told him I wanted a bird and this is the one he chose. Robins have solid blue eggs which are the symbols for him and his brothers and the speckled egg are the others I have taken into my home. It was very touching to me because he researched his piece, He is a true artist and has lots of great jobs. my neighbor had hers done to

Tips Tricks and Tutorial Linky Party !

 Tips and Tricks Linky Party !

Sew at Home MummyThis fantastic series hosted by Erin at Sew at Home Mummy, and it is full of great tips for us crafters and bloggers !
 Today I'm writing a post and linking up with my  new friend Erin !!! On Tuesdays she has Tips,Tricks and Tutorials( including for blog writing) and today I am hosting ! Heres what I got for you ! 
It really bothers me to have threads everywhere when I am sewing and by accident one day I discovered that it sticks really well to a piece of burlap, this is a loose weave, I keep it by my machine while I am sewing and it soaks up those threads while I sew. You can also, use it to wipe across the table top or carpet and it gathers them so well, and it rolls them up to help you trash them. My husband loves it now that he doesnt have to untangle the vacuum cleaner. 

Fast2Mark Easy Triangle Tool from C PublishingI just bought this nifty little tool from Missouri Star Quilt shop that really helps with those HST. I am not a fan of them, but they seem to always be in the Quilts I love, so I am going to give it a shot.
