Giveaway Winner and Free Pattern

Thank you for everyone that stopped and left a comment on the giveaway. The big winner that gets the kit is CarrieM. I went to her blog and she has the cutest family. So Carrie send me your address and I will send you the kit. Hope you enjoy it.

My sister Barb made this patriotic table topper out of the flag fabric that I just put in my store. It is super easy and looks so nice. We will be offering the pattern free when you order the red star and flag fabric. Everything in the store is 15% off till the end of the month. She actually made two toppers. One takes a yard of fabric and the other takes 2 yards. You could make one for the fourth of July or you could make a cute table cloth.

Memorial Day SALE

I borrowed this picture from my distributor EE Schenck.The years 2011–2015 mark the 150th Anniversary of the U.S. Civil War. One of the most tragic wars our country has ever fought. It pitted brother against brother and many lives were lost, and families destroyed.
So in memory of all those that have served our country. I am having a Memorial Day Sale. Everything in the store is 15% off and the shipping is a flat rate. So check out the store at Inchworm Fabrics.

I am grateful for a father that served, an uncle who died serving in WWII and many nephews who are serving now. Thank you to those that are serving, have served and died protecting their wives, children, country, and their liberty. They gave us their life and we owe them our gratitude.

'Lose 200 lbs this Weekend'

I finished a book this last weekend, so it is book review time. This is the book and it was well worth reading. I took a load of stuff to the thrift store today with lots more to go. I am doing the stuff I am least attached to first and then I will go for the other (fabric) last. The review is from Amazon.


Junk Junkies alert - dejunk now and experience the freedom of having a clutter-free house, mind, and body! Using humor and anecdotes to help readers classify their clutter-collecting tendencies, Aslett gently shows readers how less junk leads to lower stress. Just reading Aslett's motivational guidance will have readers feeling better right away. Each chapter explores a different aspect of his proven philosophy, providing quick tips and easy solutions readers can apply to their daily lives immediately. Fun, inspiring and packed with practical advice, this book is sure to be another Aslett bestseller.

About the Author

He has more than 40 years of professional cleaning experience and is the founder and chairman of Varsity Contractors, a multi-million dollar cleaning operation.


A little side note, when he wrote his first book is there 'Life after housework' our little community center had him come and speak. It was great and inspiring and I used his techniques and they really worked. This was in the early 80's mind you and I didn't realize he had written more books, till I went into the used book store and his book was on top of a pile and I just couldn't resist. Well he has inspired me again. So I am off and running or shall we say off and cleaning.

Baby Blanket

Here is the missing photo for the baby blanket that Jeanette (my mother) quilted for me (didn't she do a great job???!!!- Thanks MOM!!!). This was a fun quilt to make. It is for my boss who just had his first baby girl.... they have 5 boys so all of the pink is very new for them. I hope they like it. It is always fun to make something for someone. This quilt was inspired by a table runner on Sew we Quilt during the table runner series.... I just loved the idea. I have two other quilts that Mom quilted for me that need binding... aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh... I started making scallops for them and well I lost interest very fast and it is just sitting there in a pile calling my name.... but I have started another quilt, a log cabinet which is really fun, but it is taking me about 45 minutes to sew two blocks... this might be the first quilt I keep for myself.... we will see. Happy Quilting- Jen

It is MAY oh MY!!!!!!

It is hard to believe it is May already. I have been busy but I keep forgetting to take pictures.

I have a co-worker who keeps bringing in these cute ideas for me to do. I told her she was barred from coming into my office. She showed me some aprons made from kitchen towels, so I went home and made one. Brought it to work and another co-worker bought it on the spot. No picture.

I quilted a baby quilt that my daughter made for her boss but while it was on the frame the baby came, so when I got it done I stuffed it in a flat rate box and sent it. No picture.

Said co-worker wanted to see if I could make a pillow case dress. Well of course I can so I come home when I should be cleaning or gardening and of course I make said dress but guess what? I do have a picture. I didn't have a pillow case so I made one out of Riley Blakes 'Indian Summer' fabric and then made the dress. Turned out cute, so now what? I don't have a grand daughter who can wear it. Hummmm.....another co-worker showed me that there is a charity that takes pillow case dresses to send to Africa. "Little Dresses for Africa"
Fun, easy and greatly appreciated.
