Baby Opossum surprised me!

As I was walking out the back door, imagine my surprise when this little critter looked up at me, glad I turned on the porch light! I stomped my feet to scare it away, it went in the bushes, shrubs.  Not sure who was more surprised it or me!  I was going out to take a picture of the pattern cases I have been organizing, so I had the camera with me.  What luck, I caught a couple pictures of it.  But here is the recent pattern cases I got from my sweet mother in law.

Sewing tips from the past

Found this while reading other blogs, just had to share it- smiling all the while.  I never wear lipstick when I sew.  Some days the biggest decision I make is whether or not to get out of my PJ's.  It's all about the creative process.

Fall Decor

This neat table runner was made from Vinyl scrap, and fall flowers taken apart and stitched down. Very easy.  I am also going to make one using silk leaves, fall colors, and then consider, possibilities for spring, summer, and winter.
