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

CRAFTSY CLASS 50% OFF CLASS PRICE ON PRECISION PIECING

I TOOK MY FIRST ONLINE CLASS EVER, I HAVE NEVER EVEN DID IT FOR THE TRAFFIC TICKET I GOT. 

Craftsy has offered my blogging buddies 50% off on this class, just use this link  http://www.craftsy.com/ext/SimpleSewBlog_PrecisionPiecing50

This Memorial Day weekend, join Craftsy in honoring the brave men and women who have served in the US Armed Forces. For every class sold this weekend, Craftsy will donate a portion of the proceeds to benefit a veterans' organization

Precision Piecing (taught by Norah McMeeking on Craftsy

  1. This quilting class has in depth instructions on making the Stained Glass Window Quilt, with full pattern. Paper Piecing Precision, and Emerald Rings Quilt,  WoW ! I got 6 patterns, and a class I can return to anytime it gives you all the tips and tricks. 
  2. You learn funTerminology," like marrying the seams," " Spin the center " LOL.. Who knew I could say this after one class..
  3. Norah McMeeking engages you in the process too. You can see others asking questions and see the answers or you can turn that off, but I found it even more helpful. 
Things I liked about the software format:  For those who have never been on Craftsy....

The program is like MS word, so anyone can work it.  I found this as an adventure since I didnt  know how to read a pattern, But I do Now ! ( sorta) (mostly)
I love the note taking, it stops the video while you are writing and starts up when you hit enter and marks it so you can hover over it with your mouse and see what you wrote.. It even has SPELL CHECK !  
When you leave the video, just exit and when you come back it will start up where you left off, ( I really messed with it to see if I could trick it up ) LoL , NOPE ! its smart..... 

SUGGESTION
         Print the paperwork first !  ( I didnt) then if you want to write yourself a note, jot it in the margins .Plus there is your PP Patterns.

What helped me out right away is getting rid of the bulk in PP...........

Sorry this is probably pretty wordy from me to you, but Hey, wanted to pass on some Knowledge for once ! Going to Pictures now.. 



  This Pattern is from FreshSqueezedlemons, I used it because I had it cut out already and working on UFO's
