Believing in the Strength of Thread

Believing in the Strength of Thread.

A little self-therapy I wrote to try and get over my lack of belief in the strength of threads and the problems it’s causing me. :)

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving, everyone!

Feeling Fall Frosties?

by Faye Morrison

I like to wear scarves and gloves at this time of the year. Coats, not so much.

I just saw a blog post with lots of ideas for scarves to suit every taste. (100 free scarf patterns)

There are no sew options, either. One that really took my fancy was a stamped one using the ends of celery (#58).

Check out the patchwork option (Pieced section, #54-59) for all the tote bag ladies as you probably have a few scraps hanging around.

Have a wonderful thanksgiving everyone!

Fixing Zippers 101

by Faye Morrison

Ever been at your wits end when you discover your zipper no longer works on an otherwise perfectly good jacket, dress, purse, etc?

I discovered a great new video about a product called FixnZip this morning on YouTube but haven’t tried it out yet; but I’m definitely going to try and lay my hands on one.

Fixing jackets are the absolute worst!

Foam Toe Separators to Store Bobbins

I just saw this idea on Pinterest.

You can get the details here and here. Seems pretty easy and practical to me. I don’t give myself pedicures so I don’t have one of these handy to know how they work but perhaps someone in the Guild does.

I should go buy some to try, if nothing else just to see the person’s look at a guy buying these things, lol.
