Giraffe Garden Quilt

I have had this Michael Miller 'Giraffe Garden' fabric sitting in my sewing room for almost a year now.  I thought it would be nearly close to sinful to cut-up such an adorable sheet of fabric, so I avoided it...'till now.  My solution...don't cut it!  I decided to leave the fabric intact, and I...

JC Penney’s New Strategy | Not so much.

I've never really been a JC Penney fan. Once in awhile I'll go there to buy a sweater for my daughter, or a tie for my husband for Christmas. I've browsed around the women's sections and I did once buy a long sweater coat with a pretty Missoni-ish chev...
