Welcome to my website. It is always a work in progress!

My Blog

I am writing just for the fun of it so my blog really has little to do with my sewing. Don’t waste too much time there unless you are curious. Now that I am retired, writing has been a pastime I have been enjoying in between sewing jobs or gardening.

I would love to sew something beautiful for you!


I like to leave you a update of what is going on in the life of CushNCovers when I am not sewing for you.

I don’t post something every day but try to change things up for you weekly.


Week of 9/28/2020
The hummingbirds have left Minnesota so I will take my feeders down. The bees are enjoying what is left of the nectar, but I have plenty of marigolds and sedum and what is left of the wildflowers for them to feast on.

I am looking forward to bringing in my begonias and I think I will take in the impatiens as well. My potted geraniums get put into brown bags (just their root ball and about a five inch stem area). I do this every year. My home is a bit messy with the droppings of leaves and petals I put up with but we have color all winter.

I completed three sets of lined panel drapes (not pleated but looped on back) for my daughter’s client and I don’t want to do drapes again! A lot of measuring and precision is involved and I don’t have the patience for it anymore. I don’t want to work so hard but they look lovely!

Today I will go up to finish a project I cut out for a client. Four pillows with piping and a seat cushion (27 x 22 x 5). Everything was cut out yesterday and sometimes that is the hardest part of the job. Sometimes you want to match or center a pattern or the fabric may be a bit of a challenge to work with. I am looking forward to getting to my sewing room.

I didn’t hear from any of my students who will be attending my class on Saturday but I am sure it will all work out. I will keep you posted. I know I will have to do some rearranging to set up a nice place for us all to sew. I have a nice porch that overlooks our woodsy backyard so it will feel as if we are outside. I love the windows.

Flower Gardeners TIP: I bring my begonias in but have a problem with gnats when I do. Here is a great link (click here), if you are a garden enthusiast and enjoy indoor blooms in the winter.

I hope you have a very good week and thank you for stopping by!

You have a President Trump, that loves the United States of America!
His past success in governing, is proven over the last 3.5 years, despite all the obstacles. The Russia hoax, Impeachment, bias from the media complicit with the left, and the Wohan, China Corona virus,were just a few challenges that made his job more difficult, yet he is an over-comer and presses on for the citizens whom he cares about.

Twitter Keeps “deleting” videos that show truths untold by our media.
Facebook blocks some content so not all your followers see your message.
Google too…makes it hard to find popular conservative sites, changing the
algorithm behind the scenes for these sites.

The lies need to stop. All voices need to be heard.
We all need to vote. Elections matter.
Watch this video and share it and make up your own mind!

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. ” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)
