Let’s Make A Serger Christmas Ornament

Let’s Make A Serger Christmas Ornament - Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year. Perhaps you can relate to this on some level: The experience of feeling a live being growing inside of my belly, then being born absolutely perfect and beautiful with all of the necessary pieces and parts to sustain life was truly awe-inspiring for me.

AccuQuilt GoMe! - Do you AccuQuilt? That is the tag line I see on so many AccuQuilt ads and I totally get it now! I’m kind of a new AccuQuilt convert…. Recently, I have been appreciating the speed and accuracy of cutting on this wonderful machine and I am really getting the hang of figuring out which die I can use to cut out my quilts.
