Web sites

Guess I can say UNDER CONSTRUCTION and watch the dust! Working on the websites and the blogger locations. Soon will have more sewing instructions AND will let you know where to buy my books, Singer Reference CS, Featherweight CD, patterns, and hopefully articles from my original web site of

Supposedly, everything will direct you to here and more pages will be at your fingertips. Want to give you as much free sewing ideas and articles as I possibly can. Yes, the website of is no longer a separate site. Time to simplify life, both mine and yours!

Will be several days before I blog again and please forgive. I know you will understand. My sister, and my avid quilter and sewing buddy, had been fighting pancreatic cancer for 2 years. She had a major Whipple operation in 2010 which did give her these last years. Unfortunately, she did have every complication possible. As each tube was pulled from her body - we celebrated. We learned to bless and enjoy each day. We went to sewing shops - even changing up to 3 tanks of oxygen to get her there and back home. But, just buying more fabric and planning the next quilt, gave her so much enjoyment. Who cares whether those quilts would never be done.

She passed away on Tuesday and the hole in my heart feels like it will never be filled again. The next days will be filled with the funeral process. I know she is with me in heart and soul, and (together) we will be back quickly to share our love of sewing!

Bless each day with all you love,

I bet shopping with your sister was wonderful and will be a great memory.

Our thoughts are with you in your loss

I'm so sorry about your sister, Charlene - my condolences to your family :(

I bet the 3 oxygen tank shopping trip was a hoot though - I imagine you both laughed your heads off with every tank change - what a fantastic memory!

I'm so sorry. I can't imagine how you feel. Such a loss for you and your family. Take time to grieve.
