Tutorial: Paperclip Angel

paperclip angel tutorial

I always associate angels with Christmas crafts. We have an angel that sits on the top of our Christmas tree and we alternate years between the angel and a Christmas star. There are so many angels in the Christmas story that it just seems right to have angels in our decorations as well.

(On a side note, I started to think of angels totally differently after I read This Present Darkness by Frank…

Deep Sunday: Small Town Love

Why I love living in a small town

A few weeks back now I started thinking about how I love living in our small town, Toowoomba. It’s not super small but small enough to not be big. (Does that make sense?)

Tutorial: Sewing Machine Pincushion

Tutorial: Sewing Machine Pincushion

Pincushion for Sewing Machine

Sometimes when you’re sewing at your sewing machine, you just need a spot to put a pin or two for a minute. Either you’re taking out pins as you sew two pieces together, or you’re moving pins as you’re quilting. I often find myself sticking a couple of pins into my sewing machine mat when my pincushion has disappeared! Do you find that too?

As I was making my new sewing machine mat last week, I…
