PDF pattern bought - what next

Image
Hi Everyone, I am just dropping in to discuss .pdf patterns! I buy them all the time from clothes, bags, to quilts! Big ones, small ones to little itty bitty ones! I love them all and have them all backed up to the cloud! If you don’t know what a cloud is your hard drive on your computer or tablet! 1.  Depending on where you buy it from you will get the opportunity to download it as soon as you pay! Others sites might send you as email to download!  Don’t wait til later to download it.  Do it as soon as you can! Not going to use it right away, that’s ok, but download it to your storage! I say this because I use all Apple products and I download everything to iBooks! 2. Print it off for some light reading! You might find that cute bag is not as easy as you thought or you need to order interfacing, snaps, buckles, or more fabric! But read it! 3. Look at and cut out the pattern pieces and make sure they are all there! What do I mean? Well, you might find the pattern designer gave you a te

Meet Friends

Image
The point of social media is to meet new friends!  But how often do we actually go out and meet someone  we talk to daily on social media. This is my wonderful friend Leona!  I talked to her on Flickr, her blog, and Instagram for about 5 maybe 6 years.  I can honestly say it was so different to meet her in person.  It has changed that friendship into something greater.   I am so happy we went a couple of hours out of our way on vacation to met her and her son.  Best trip just for a conversation in real life and a few hugs. It will last me until next time.  When I will make a point to add her to our trip! I also caught up with a quilt shop owner and friend Karen! My sister in law took me to her shop 2 years ago while we where visiting her.  We kept up a friendship on Instagram. Karen owns Fabric Smart in Gulfport, Florida! Her shop is a Modern Quilters Dream! She has all the latest and greatest! She also has on hand everything to make clothes, bags, and all kinds of sewing projects.  Cl

Controversial or Not

    I cannot tell you which blog I first watched this video on but I can tell you it sure did make my husband look at me sideways and laugh. Which I think was the intent of AccuQuilt | The Best Fabric Cutter Machine For Quilting : AccuQuilt So God Made A Quilter - YouTube Society seems to control what is right and wrong. Trying to make more of something than was intended! Watch the video and let me know what you think. Please remember "Kindness Matters" meaning please if you are displeased just say it and don't shoot the messenger. Lisa   Create and be unique - Lisa
