Jeweled letters

Pin It

I was really inspired to create my own jeweled letters after seeing some beautiful ideas on Pinterest. It took about a week for me to collect and prepare my earring, old watches, cat pins, bridge jewelry, initial pins, brooches, Singer pins and various necklaces  from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. Brings back a lot of memories. Instead of hiding in boxes and jewelry boxes the jewels are now on letters I painted gold. The letters you see here stand for Jennifer and Mildred (mom). I even included some of my dad’s tie pins. Several family members will get a letter for Christmas, don’t tell anyone.

Here is the Pinterest link!

Corner Sanctuary – Pocomoke Community Garden flower arranging event August 20th

Pin It

Thank you Kaye Thompson Schutt for leading the flower arranging demonstration with flowers from Corner Sanctuary-Pocomoke Community Garden and Thank You to Delmarva Discovery Center for providing an indoor space for the event. If you have not seen the community garden in Pocomoke, MD it is an effort of love shared by many gardeners. The garden brings many people from the community together to share the love of nature, harvest great produce and to beautify the city through flowers and vegetables.

My mom and I were invited by Kaye to attend a flower arranging class using a the bright and colorful flowers that were cut from the community garden. Kaye and other flower enthusiast also supplied tools, tables, greens and beautiful flowers for us to use. Kaye shared information on how to use soaked oasis and cut it for the container, how to use the container to determine the size and shape of the arrangement, how to pick colors and how to make a lovely arrangement. 

Thanks for the great class and the memory. It takes me back to when I first learned flower arranging in the Girl Scouts. The classes I took then were held by the Acorn Club in Seaford, Delaware. We did yule logs, wreaths and did some formal flower arranging. I always have loved flowers.

Cosplay is definitely exciting sewers

Pin It

I have noticed in the past few years that costume making is really giving some sewers a new reason to be creative. Since all the comic book movies there has been a reason to pull the sewing machine out and be creative with “wonder woman” or “spider man” or “Star Trek”. The list of costumes is endless and I do not even know half of the recreated characters. I do know that McCall’s and Singer are actively participating in the cosplay sewing venue.

McCalls now has a blog devoted to the cosplay costumes and Singer is sponsoring contests on the best costume. If you are interested in following the latest sewing trend here are some links.

For McCalls blog..  and for a Singer Brand Ambassador

 

I did notice the use of machine embroidery in many of the costumes. The use of machine embroidery lace is made possible with some special wash away stabilizers. I use to use a lot of organza to make lace when the embroidery was not free standing. Here is a link to some of the stabilizers I sell.

If you need a walking foot for even stitching or a roller foot for vinyl or a gathering foot for sheers or a ruffler for full gathers and tucks, I stock many types of accessory.

Have fun thinking up and designing your costume for the next cosplay meeting.

Country Curtains By Jenny’s Sewing Studio

Pin It

My mom loves country curtains! After 26 years her curtains are ready to fall off the rod so I am replacing them. It is a great project for a hot summer day, (make that a week) especially if you have air conditioning and time. I wrote an instructional sheet on how to measure the window to figure out the fabric yardage. You can also take a class on ruffled curtains from me.

For this project it is important to own a ruffler. Jenny’s Sewing Studio has one available for your machine.

To figure the ruffles I calculate 6″ for the ruffle width. I also figure 3 X for fullness. The ruffles go on one side of each panel and across the bottom.  The total yardage needed is 31 yards for these 3 windows. Since ruffles are not and exact science I always allow so extra yardage.

I use a rotary cutter and ruler to cut all the panels first.  3 thread serger edge was used to finish the cut edges and I took advantage of the selvages. The selvage is great for the outer edge of the curtain.

My bolt is 36 yards and so I am cutting the ruffle on the remaining length. I used a narrow rolled hem to finish each side of the ruffle. That was a lot of serging and took me a few days.

Once I started the ruffle edging I had to continue until done.  I took a few hours to ruffle over 3,000 inches. The ruffler was connected to the machine and I figure the fullnes by ruffling a small section. I measured 3″ of the ruffle and than pulled it out to see how full the ruffle was. I adjusted the ruffler until I had the best fullness fit.

The last thing to do is sew the ruffle on the panels. Make sure you make 3 curtains with the ruffle sewn on the right and three curtains that are sewn on the opposite long edges so you have a left and a right curtain for each window.

More wild life visitors at Jenny’s

Pin It

I have never seen so many creators in my yard as I have this year. 2 weeks ago I watched a huge snapping turtle cross South Schumaker Dr and come into our yard to lay eggs. She was big and fast so I stayed my distance. This week we have a ground hog visiting. I did not know they can climb trees. That is were I caught this one. It was really big and ugly and if he had not moved I would have missed him. I was teaching Grace to finish her quilt when she spotted him coming across the road from the park. I have seen him on 2 other occasions and am glad I do not have a vegetable garden. Please! Please, Mr Groundhog, stay out of my yard!

Bridge Buddies

Pin It

Since 2008 Arlene, Toby, Eileen and I have been bridge buddies.  Our original group included Pattie and Patrick. We all took bridge lessons at the Wicomico Civic Center from Jean McKinney. If you ask around the area, there are a lot of bridge players who took lessons from Jean.  Once our group graduated from the intermediate class, we decided to play bridge every Friday afternoon. Our group has played at various locations, including our homes. About 8 or 9 years ago I joined the Elks in Salisbury, MD. The four of us have met for lunch and played party bridge at the Elks or my home ever since.  My mom started coming to lunch at the Elks with me in 2014 after my dad pasted away.  She will not learn bridge but she is always up for going out to lunch. We treat her like one of the group.

This year we are going through a major change. Eileen and Patrick are moving away to be closer to their children. Today was our last bridge game as a group. We will miss them very much but hope that their new home will be an exciting new chapter in their lives. Eileen says her granddaughter Jane, who is 3, will be very excited to see her. They will be living 5 minutes away. It has been great knowing Eileen and Patrick and we wish them well.

Arlene, Toby and I will still be playing bridge on Fridays. We are trying out new partners and hope they will enjoy our 4 some.  Once you get bridge in your blood it is hard to quit. Eileen is hoping she can find a new 4 some too.
