All my scattering moments are taken up with my needle

Apart from yoga, meditation, reading,
it has to be one of the most serene things to do

In Seattle you haven't had enough coffee until
you can thread a sewing machine while it's running
My granddaughter came to spend a few weeks with me,
and I decided to teach her to sew.
After I had gone through a lengthy explanation
of how to thread the machine,
she stepped back, put her hands on her hips,
and said in disbelief,
"You mean you can do all that,
but you can't play my Game Boy?"
After a few weeks of secret sewing projects for
the Junk Gypsy HGTV series
(which will premiere in next Spring
and run for 13 weeks)
my cup is full of sewing satisfaction!
It looks like you're making a quilt of the happy belly. Your videos aren't working.
I love watching you sew. You are so serene.
cannot wait to get my apron! I love to sew too - finally am getting into it again after a years break xo

I HOPE he likes his new quilt, it has lots of red (his Fav color) I'll have to make him a Spring quilt! maybe! Blessings to YOU and YOURS
dear sew and sew,
you are a running stitch straight to my heart! i love it when i know you are sewing because i am aware of the great peace that envelopes you when you do, and the great beauty that finds its way into the world through your hands.
great quotes too!
I have nothing but the utmost respect for what you do with your hands and your sewing machine. Your needlework is a meditation in itself. Beautiful! I am sure your granddaughter will remember this time years from now.
I love those fabric blocks of varying sizes all stitched together. To my way of thinking, this is the best sort of quilting (along with crazy quilting).
How I would love for us to all to sit together in a sewing circle! Did you know my love is a great sewer? He's an upholsterer and sewing is one of his specialist areas.
i love the way you stitched together image and verse here : )
and your quilt looks awesome!
It is very meditative picking up every stitch.
You go seamstress girl!! (lifting up my pincushion and giving the sewing power signal too you from afar:)
How serendipitous, needlepoint is on my list of hobbies to explore to keep me calm [read sane ;) ]...maybe you've just posted the words to make it happen.
Love Charlotte x
We have the same sewing machine! I love it because it is indestructible...just a little maintenance now and then.
