Sewing helps and goodies...

I think about sewing way more than I actually sew. However, I sew fast and furiously when I do get around to it. From time to time, I pick up wonderful links and tips around the internet. Here are a couple I found recently (or rediscovered) for those of you who love to sew...

DIY Magnetic Pin Holder using a lovely antique ceramic dish
 I own a Grabbit and do like it but find it to be a bit shallow for my needs and not very lovely. Great for those times when I take my sewing on the road with me... but not even close to as lovely as this DIY version.

Hot and Cold Therapy Corn Bags
This is a great site for everything you ever wanted to know about making microwave corn bags. I made a ton of these several years ago with removable Minky covers and we still use them. Very nice for elderly who are frequently cold and inactive. My husband's grandmother used her frequently to warm her lap and hands. A great use for your scraps and feed corn is super cheap.
