Yard sale find!!!

Yes!  You will not believe what I found at a yard sale!!  Super exciting!  A Singer sewing machine cabinet with a machine included for a killer deal!!  See....
It needs a little TLC, but that is totally fine with me!  I love the wood work on the drawers!  Next project on the list of many!

Fall and Halloween are fast approaching!!  Time for some Skinnie projects!!  Look what was made from "Witches Brew"

Aren't these Super Cute!!!  Love the lace and bow on the skirt.  The spider is great on the frog too (even though I hate spiders :)  Thanks to Terry for sharing her Skinnies!

Here it is!  I love how it turned out!!!  
It took almost 3 cans of spray paint, but it was worth it!  Check out the glass knobs I found!  
Can't wait to put this in my studio.

OK, I'm not much on yard sales.  I've stopped by a few, but never found that super cool, amazing deal, UNTIL.  One that I stopped at had a beautiful, old desk that caught my eye. It was way over-priced for what it was so I decided to leave.  As I was walking back to the car, I saw this small side table that was looking neglected.  So I bought it for $5.

It's 25" square and needed a lot of help.  I brought it home and went to work.   The paint is drying so I will post the pictures of the "After" by Monday.  
Have a great weekend!

Welcome Hoppers!!

Thanks for stopping by!  Blog Hops are always so much fun!  Talking about fun, it was SO much fun being part of Quilting Arts TV Series 1400!!!!!!! The staff was AMAZING!!!!!!  I was really nervous, never being on TV before, but everyone was so kind and made us feel right at home.  There were a bunch of us filming that day, so I was able to meet some other designers.  We arrived early in the morning to get everything ready for the shoot.   

 Here I am getting all the steps laid out on my table.  I did a demo on using fusible web.
 Time for makeup!  
 Jeannine from Bernina showing me how to use the machine I would use in the set for the shoot.
 Susan Brubaker Knapp, the host of the show,  with me on the set.  It was so cool!!!

 We went over the steps a few times before we filmed, to make sure I knew what I was talking about :)

Kathie Stull , me and Katherine.  Right after I look relived?  

The shoot went well, I didn't even mess up ( I don't think so, anyway) 
   It was such a great experience to be part of this show!  
There are some incredible designers on this 1400 series.  You are going to have to check it out for sure!
  I was so inspired watching the other guest on the show and wanting to try some of the techniques they were demonstrating.    But that's what it's all about right?!!?  Sharing our talents and creativity with others! 
I LOVE the world of quilting!!!  Make sure you catch the episode on your local PBS station.

Alaskan Cruise Day 6

Welcome to Ketchikan!!!
There's no better way to start the day then to go to a Quilt Shop.  This one was fabulous!!!
It's also for sale....the gal that owns it is retiring.  Check it out here.

 Just a beautiful place.  I could live there!!...during the summer of course.
 That evening we had question the teacher.  It was definitely entertaining! 
Some of the questions were:
How many sewing machines do you have?  
How many irons? 
 Do you wash or not wash your fabrics before using them? 
Here's my answers - 4, 2, no - generally speaking
How about you?  What are you answers to these questions?
