Something about a fresh haircut and a bike ride…

Sunday, February 8th, 2015

Sew…there’s something wonderful about a fresh haircut (really short this time, huh?!) and a bike ride with a new friend.


Feeling happy and FREE


Yesterday, our weather was a gorgeous 64 degrees, sunny and very little wind.  A perfect day to get out on my bicycle with my new friend, Lisa.

Lisa is in my Saturday morning Strength Training Group…and new to New Mexico. Since this was her first outside ride in New Mexico and because my knees were feeling a little tweaky, we chose a relatively flat road with a nice bicycle lane in Corrales and pedaled an easy 12+ miles with the time we had.

I have to say, it absolutely invigorated me.  The sunlight, the scenery, the sound of the pedals and wheels turning…and freedom. Just taking it all in and giving myself permission to simply “be” with no expectations.  What a wonderful experience.  I can hardly wait until next Saturday! New course…some hills…and more friends!

Today is our present…truly a gift.  What will you do with yours?

Product Spotlight/Video Demo: Snag Repair Tool

Monday, April 7th, 2014

We just finished filming this little demo for one of my most favorite tools, the Snag Repair Tool.

The Snag Repair Tool is *sew* inexpensive and really has saved my day on more than one occasion.  I’ve used it to repair snags in garments (woven and knit), upholstery, draperies, quilts and more.  I’ve used it when quilting (both by hand and by machine) at times when my thread has broken unexpectedly and there wasn’t enough of a tail to pull through with my regular needle…this little guy solves the problem quickly and painlessly.  I’ve used it with hand embroidery and silk ribbon embroidery too.

The snag repair tool is a valuable tool…at very little cost. You can buy the snag repair tool here at SewThankful.  OK.  So, here’s the video:
