My first hand sewed quilt and jazzing up my bedroomI made my first hand made quilt hand sewed it all and everything on it. I hand sewed all the dragonflies and the sunflowers as well as the crows and everything on it.
It took me about 3 weeks to hand sew everything you see on this beautiful quilt today I got up early around 7 am this morning to hand sew all of this little squares together to make a quilt it took me all day to finish this.
I am going to add on to it later and make it a little bit bigger to cover my whole bed. 
I had fun making all of these little animals hand sewing each one and picking out what fabric I wanted to use as well as picking out the buttons to use for the eyes. I also enjoyed picking out what ribbon I wanted to use and beads.
I have epilepsy so hand sewing as helped me with my hand eye coordination it also helped me with being creative. I find hand sewing to be a fun way to pass the time and it helps me to relax.
My mom showed me how to hand sew when I was eigh…

Buttons and beads O My A Few of My Favorite Things.
I started sewing again so I needed some supplies. With my mom's help, she let me look through some of her sewing supplies and pick out the buttons I wanted. 
I had a lot of fun going through her buttons and picking out the ones I wanted.
I would have to say that buttons are my favorite I love finding that one button that would look good with whatever I am making.
My favorite buttons are vintage buttons and cute ones that look like flowers and little animals. 
Beads come in handy when you are sewing as well it is a lot of fun finding a bead the match what you are making same with a button and sewing floss and thread. 
I found sewing to be very relaxing and fun it is a good way to pass the time I could sew all day if I could my mom got me started on hand sewing when I was 12. So I just started back up again.
