I love to dye fabric, make thread pictures and quilt. I live in the Yukon on an acreage with my husband, 2 dogs and 34 fish. It's the 'good' life.

Pinterest Fun

I Pin a lot of things, and recently I added something that I thought might be useful at some point. Little did I know that I would need it this soon. Last night I made some curtains and remembered this template from Scientific Seamstress that I used to add a neat and tidy seam allowance. Mine can sometimes go wonky, so this came in handy. She also offers a curved seam template--very nice!

Another Pinterest find was the Magic PillowCase that has a french seam in it. It is a really fun way to make a nice pillowcase (and I used up a lot of ugly fabric).. sorry--I don't have a picture right now.

And finally, here is one that I need to make since I cannot stand light of any kind in my eyes when I am sleeping.  LOL
Silly eye mask

  2. haha that's awesome. I sleep with a pair. I thought about putting big googly eyes on mine, but my littlest still sleeps with me and I don't want to freak her out. : )
