It was a happy day. My 14 yr old made me a huge birthday cake all by herself. It is 2 cake mixes...4 layers. I especially love the candles my girls picked out. Ha...29 again! Sure why not! Sounds great. Sweet day! Literally. #cakefordays#cakedecorating
Favorite notions #igquiltfest A very practical choice today. I have learned to love my cut glove. It has metal fibers that protects your fingers from rotary mishaps. I've never had a major injury but I've seen my share here on IG and the pain of getting used to wearing it is worth the pain I hopefully won't have to experience from a rotary accident. #rotarycutting#fabriccutting#quiltingisfun#quiltnotions
Well here's an old picture of my sewing space. I am out of town and forgot to snap an updated picture. It pretty much looks the same tho. I sew in the basement. What you dont see here are the ugly mechanicals/ HVAC that I share the space with. It's the only unfinished section of our basement and someday we will get to finishing it. For now my sweet husband helped make it as cozy and functional as we could. He built the counter table where I sit and sew. The minis help to hide the ugly concrete wall. And I use an old bar height table as my cutting area. Not shown here to the right are book shelves I keep my stash and stuff. This view makes me happy. I just try not to look at the other side that is ugly.
