Good Samaritan

I've been so busy getting everything ready for Christmas, I have yet again, ignored my blog!

Today, I drove back from a quick weekend visit to Iowa. It was just the kids and I. Well the weather wasn't so great. About 20 miles from my brothers house I ran into trouble. I hit a very slick patch, fishtailed, and went off the road. I wasn't completely in the ditch, just enough that I was stuck!

Luckily, two other vehicles stopped and with the help (and muscle) of four strangers, I got out! I wish I knew who these people were...I thanked them profusely and off they drove. So to all the nice people who will stop to help a stranger...

Winter Sew Somerset

My newest article came out in "Sew Somerset" today. I'm so excited. The photos look wonderful, they did such a great job. So vibrate and bold.

This is a tutorial describing my technique for using used dryer sheets to create fun and functional fabric. I'm very happy how it all turned out.

If four full pages wasn't cool enough....The editor (Amanda Nolan) was
kind enough to include me in her "Letter from the Editor"!!! Yay!!!

The whole issue is fun and interesting..pick up your copy today :-)
