Blog of the Week - Sew Many Ways

A goodly number of people are familiar with Karen at Sew Many Ways. If you are not here's one of the reasons why - her regular Tooltime Tuesday feature. It's great. She takes objects you might not necessarily think about for solutions to household/quilting problems. Most of them are so simple that I for one usually say "Duh, why did I not think of that?"

What is that dangly bit?
What's coming next?
Darn, I should have held onto my buttons :) Speaking of which, Karen is currently doing a button giveaway. I want them you cann't have them !!!!

She did what with this!!!!

Go for a stroll through her blog and find out more. Karen has a very entertaining way of drawing you into her projects and you always come away feeling as if you have learned something.
Check out the photographs she took at the MQX, Machine Quilters Expo. Amazing. (Sunday April 25, 2010). Will my own machine quilting ever get that good? Highly unlikely because I prefer to hand quilt - BUT - they are good ......... very...... very ......... good :)
So thanks Karen for thinking outside of the box and giving us such entertaining ideas for very simple daily items. and as she says "The happiest of people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
