I love my coffee and my husband makes a pot in the morning but by the time I get up it is practically gone.  So I have this great filter from World's Market.
Millita Coffee funnels have been around for a long long time.  When I was a little girl and went to Germany that is how they made their coffee and probably still do.  I love my electric boil kettle, put
a Millita filter in your funnel, measure your coffee (weak, strong) and pour the boiling water and in
a few minutes you have a great cup of coffee - and it is nice and hot.  My other machine is "Mr. Coffee" - I never did care for the Keurig brand machine.  My way is very inexpensive the funnel cost me maybe $4.00.

I just make a cup at a time but you can make a whole pot of coffee.  I still have to admit the peculator coffee was also wonderful Faber ware.

This is my own recommendation I have not been paid by any company.

Keep Cool.... I am back to knitting

I am making a pumkin scarf that I started last year and hope to finish it by the fall.

Binding on Charity quilts.

The first quilts I worked on for charity quilts I would serge the trim on the quilts.  I wasn't happy with the way it was turning out but hey we did about 80-100 quilts. 
On my personal quilts I always hand stitched the binding.

Then I learned to machine sew the binding, we would make the back 4 inches longer then the quilt and fold the fabric and zig zag the binding.  I have to be honest my stitches were not that great.  The
walking foot came in real handy.

I serged these quilts and I tried to hide the borders of the quilts.

I made bindings for personal quilts.

Mug Rugs this is where I learned hand stitching my bindings.
For 2016 I am hand stitching my charity quilts - when I sew them by machine 'yes' it takes about 2 hours but it just doesn't come out correctly - they buckle.  I cannot put my feeder down on my machine; the walking foot helped a lot but still not satisfied.

At night I love to hand stitch so I decided to hand stitch my charity quilts and I was hooked.  It takes
2 nights to complete my 60 x 80 quilt but I am so happy doing it - it calms me down.

Happy Stitching!
