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

merrily you sew along

Its  been a pleasure joining such a sewing group as merrily we sew along! Kelley made this beautiful second set of placemats. We have been inspired by the beautiful versions showing up in the flickr group.
A series of straight lines in fun colors make this project super simple.  If you know how to thread your machine, use your iron and sew a straight-ish line, you are set!
You still have 2 weeks to get in on this project to be entered in the prizes. But you have to get your pics into our Flickr group. The prizes are a craft book set from Storey Publishing and a thread set from Aurifil .Aurifil is giving a Simply Color collection set (that's over 17,000 yards of 50wt thread, folks!!!) and we also have a set of four fabulous craft books (including improv sewing) from Storey Publishing.
