National Sewing Month

September is National Sewing Month!!! As quilters we are very lucky because we get to celebrate both National Sewing Month and National Quilting Week.

What do you have planned to indulge your sewing pleasure this month? Don't forget to treat yourself to a little something special too! Perhaps there is a notion or tool you've wanting to add to your arsenol. Maybe you desire some new fabric for your stash! You might even want to treat yourself to a new sewing  machine!

I have a list of projects I hope to accomplish during National Sewing Month. Even though my stash is already quite large, I can always use a reason to add some new yardage. I also hope to buy a new iron. I've had my eye on an Oliso iron. My choice would be the yellow one. I like its extra long cord, the longer time before the automatic shut-off turns it off and, of course, the feet that automatically lift it off of the ironing board surface. OK, I'll admit that I may be "using" National Sewing Month as an excuse to treat myself to a new iron, a few pieces of new fabric and some extra quilting time, but, it makes me happy.

Happy Quilting,
