Hello all, Mary Ellen again.
This will speak for itself. (Click here for an interesting point of view on what our hand-made things are really worth.) I wonder if you”ll agree with her. I’ll be honest, I stopped selling my quilts because I couldn’t get very many folks to pay what I felt they are worth. And I’ve learned to be judicious in choosing gift quilt recipients who appreciate what they are getting.
Here’s a cute project for spring. Some cheerful shoes and digging in your button box. Have a look at this. (click here.)
If you’ve sewed a lot lately, it might be time to take care of your scissors. I do this now and then (training from my old tailoring teacher who was a strict old bird!), but not often enough. If you own some really good scissors, and you do this “maintenance” routine, along with periodic sharpening, they will last forever. My favorite Ginghers are probably 35 years old and still are like new. I also have a pair of pinking shears that were my grandmother’s originally, that also still cut well. Who knows how old those are?! (click here for scissor routine)
Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
