Hamilton Beach Durathon Digital Iron Model 19901 Review

So I killed my iron a few weeks ago.  I needed a new one but there are so many brands and models out there that I was a little overwhelmed.  When I tweeted about my dilemma Hamilton Beach offered me a new iron.  I thought, "Why not?" if nothing else it would give me a stop-gap iron and it would let me give you the low down on the iron.  Even though they sent me the iron everything below is my own opinion.  This isn't my first Hamilton Beach iron and it probably won't be my last either.

Fiber Tuesday 153

Welcome back to Fiber Tuesday!  How was everyone's week?  I am starting to think my mind is leaving without me.  When I logged in to set up this post I realized everything I wrote for last week, I scheduled for this week.  That means I don't have to write this week but I didn't put up any new blog posts.  I need a bigger calendar I think.

Fiber Tuesday 152

Welcome back to Fiber Tuesday!  How was everyone's week?  Oh, I swear I'm not the brightest bulb in the box.  One of the area schools is having a fundraiser in a few weeks.  Over the weekend I decided I could turn their mascot into a lap throw they could auction off.  Sunday though I struggled with getting the angles to layout right so I'm going to turn the graphic into a paper pieced pattern.  I have until April 19 to finish.  Send me all your quilting luck my way.

Spring 2018 Quilting Trends

While the weather in some parts of the country hasn't gotten the memo spring is here.  It's time to look into the quilting trends for this spring.  I love looking at all the new goodies that are coming each season and sharing them with you.  Spring is a time for new things so now might be a good time to try something you haven't before.

Saying Goodbye To Fixer Upper

Tonight is the last night of Fixer Upper.  In my almost 40 years of life, I've watched a lot of TV shows.  This show is the only one that I can say has changed my life.  I hadn't planned on writing a blog post about the show on my quilt blog.  I was just going to tweet something about it but I quickly realized that 280 characters weren't enough to say goodbye to a show and a community that has become an important part of my life.
