I love it when customers send me photos of what they have created with my patterns.

And these are two really great looking organizers.  Vicki added the side tabs herself (photo above).
Thanks, Kristine and Vicki, for sending these photos!

Though I don't have direct experience with them, a friend recommended them.  I visited their Fabrics on Sale, and they have some great fabrics at some really good prices.  Worth checking out!

A way with pins...

Photo from ThreadsMagazine.com
Even after writing several posts on pins and needles, I'm still learning a few tricks...ok, I'm still learning many tricks!  And here are a few tips from Threads magazine called "How to Use Pins the Right Way".  It's a very short article with some handy tips on the easiest and most efficient way to use pins while you're sewing. It's worth a click...unless you're one of those "old" dogs!

(Other posts on using pins and needles include:
"On Pins and Needles" about choosing the correct needle for the job.
"In the fast lane!" which is one of my tricks for zipping right along on a seam without starting and stopping to unpin.)
