I'm taking a break.

There is no need to worry....I will just be away for a few days to get my thoughts together. It's been a hard week here and I'm feeling a little scattered....I haven't been able to write for days, I don't know why (or maybe I do and I just don't want to talk about it) but I know it will all come back to me soon. So until I have something worth saying I will be hugging my babies extra tight, thanking God for my precious friends and family, and sewing like a mad woman for Quilt Market. See you soon. xoxo, Samantha

We'll miss you, but you need to take care of yourself and your family first. We will be here when you get back, and in the mean time I'll say an extra prayer for you.

Samantha, I am praying for you. Do what you need to do to be good to yourself and your family. You are on my heart.

In His Grace,

sorry - I had a little problem.

Breaks are good. I step away for a little while always helps me to refocus and remember the bigger picture. Hope you and your family are well!

You have such cute patterns... I am glad you are doing the larger girl sizes now... thanks!

I have a questions that I saw you post about way back... I have some old embroidered pillow cases, most seem to be cotton/poly blends. I want to wash them and get the yellowish stains out. I heard you mention cascade dw detergent. What's the process??? And how much should I use??? Will you share your hot tip with me... Maria

I just fill my sink with water and squirt maybe 1/4 cup of cascade in (the original white colored cascade) and let it soak. Sometimes it's perfect in an hour and sometimes it takes soaking all day, but it almost always works. Be careful though, I have noticed that it bleaches out colors so I only use it on mostly white linens and I check it often. After it has soaked I rinse well with water and hand wash to make sure all of the cascade is out. That's it. Let me know how it goes!
