Why Skillshare?  Well, I love to teach, and I love to sew… Skillshare offered an easy way for me to do both at the same time, so it was an offer I couldn’t refuse!  If you love crafts of all kinds – quilting, crochet, sewing, embroidery, cooking, baking, watercolor, painting, drawing, graphic design, anything you can think of… there’s a class for it on Skillshare!  I’ve been taking classes just for fun when I’m sitting for hours at airports, or traveling in the car for half a day.  It’s relaxing for me to do something fun like that.  So, I thought I could give teaching a class a try, and see how it goes.

I also like how every class on Skillshare is set up with short videos that are usually 2-5 minutes long, so if you don’t have a lot of time, you can just watch a segment or two at a time.  Also, entire classes are short, so that anyone can take them.  My class is less than 30 minutes long all together.

I hope you’ll give it a try!  If you’d like to find out how you can take this class or watch another video in my class, just click here:

Oh yes, I almost forgot!  I’m also doing a giveaway as part of the class –
Three winners will each receive two yards of fabric!!

It was fun to work on this class, and I can’t wait to do the next one!

Stay tuned!

Happy Sewing,

Hi friends,


I’m not sure if there’s still anybody out there who will even stop to read this, but in case there is…

Earlier this year, my husband gave me a brand new MacBook.  It was to replace my almost 9-year old laptop, which I had worn out.  I was thrilled with it and looked forward to all the fun I was going to have using it not only for work and ministry, but for a creative outlet as well.

On the third day of using this beautiful new laptop, I sat down to have my devotions (as I usually do in the morning), with my cup of Herbal tea, and as I reached for something on the table, I tipped over the mug of hot tea and it spilled all over the keyboard.  It literally looked like fireworks were going off on my laptop.  I tried everything but nothing worked.  Took it to the Apple Store but they told me that my $300 Apple Care plan would not cover any of it because it was considered water damage, and that is the one thing they don’t cover.  If I had dropped it on my driveway and run over it with my car (by accident, of course!), they would gladly replace it.  But not water damage.  The best picture I can find of how I felt at the moment:  😩

And that is the reason I have not been in the blogging world since June.  I’ve used the app many times before, but again, back in June, the WordPress app was glitching and several of my older posts were removed.  I knew it was a mistake because it was about quilting, nothing of international concern. LOL  I finally got it fixed this morning as I played around with the new settings on the updated app.

If there’s anyone who is still reading, …I humbly thank you!!  My plan/hope is to start catching up on all the blog posts I would’ve posted since June.  I still don’t have a laptop, but I’m getting used to using my husband’s iPad.  It’s not the same, but it’ll do for now.

Just to say thank you for reading through all this, I’d like to do a little giveaway.  I had a hard time choosing a charm pack from my stash because I like them all so much, but I finally chose one that I thought would appeal to most quilters and those of you who sew.


The charm pack is Hop, Skip and a Jump! By American Jane, Sandy Klop, for Moda.  It contains 42 squares of 5” fabrics, some patterns are duplicated.  I took just a few pics of several patterns but there’s many more in there.  It’s so cute!!

To enter the giveaway:  Leave a comment below about what your plans are for Christmas or New Years.   The giveaway is open until December 31st and I will be mailing the fabric to the winner first week of January.  For more entries, visit my Instagram by clicking on the icon on the right side of the screen or go to @adaisygarden  on Instagram.

Happy Friday, and have a blessed weekend everyone!
