Amazing FREE Tutorial from Jennifer Jangles!

Jennifer Jangles a/k/a Jennifer Heynen, as you know, is one of my favorite designers! She is so talented in multiple areas. She designs fabric, she's an artist, she's a potter and she designs sewing and quilting patterns. Well, Jennifer is offering a FREE tutorial for this adorable pin cushion!
You can find the tutorial for this pincushion HERE. You can also buy the little ice cream dish at Jennifer's Etsy shop HERE. Cute, cute, cute!

I'm still having huge work days. I don't see an end...sigh.... I'm praying every day that God keep me from self-pity (lol) and away from envy of those of you who have the luxury of having your entire day free to plan sewing, shopping, lunching with friends, etc. I hope you don't take it for granted.

And you don't have to admonish me for feeling a little self-pity or envy. I admonish myself all the time for that. I wish I were a better person like many quilting bloggers are. I am glad for everyone who is blessed with wonderful husbands who take them to quilt shops and then to lunch after they've bought a bunch of fabric. These wonderful guys usually take them on scenic drives and to antique shops on the way home. Then when they get home, build them a giant ironing table and a new addition to the house as a sewing annex. I'm glad for those women....glad, I tell ya.

Oh my, how did I get off on that tangent? I think it's cause my 24 year-old boss just emailed me that we are having yet another emergency lunch meeting....sigh.....and by the way would I mind doing a quick 8 paragraph summary for the meeting? So gotta go. Please excuse me. I know I have a long way to go to be the kind of person I want to be....hope I live long enough! It's not looking promising at this point! Have a good Wednesday! Cheery wave (really, I'm okay) Bev

I understand, that is how I feel about people with children sometimes. I am barren and I feel envious of people with children sometimes, and yes sometimes I have pity parties too! We are all allowed! So go ahead and have your pity party!

Like you I have times I envy the people who stay home all day and do whatever. I would love to do that. But then guilt sets in and I am so thankful I have a job.
