  1. Congratulations on all of the followers and growing success of your business!!! I love your panels and I love that you have this specific panel that brings Him the glory and honor, and shows love to those during times of trial and sorrow.

    My favorite sewing notion...would a charm pack count? ;) I love to collect them and put them back until I have a special someone to sew for that would appreciate the creation. But I would have to say that beside that, a seam ripper is my favorite! LOL I use it not only to rip out mistakes buy also to help re-thread my machine when replacing the bobbin.

    Have a blessed day!

    1. Shannon, I agree that the seam ripper is a must have. It's amazing the uses it has, other than just ripping out the seams.

  5. my favorite notion is glass headed pins. They are easier to sew over; the butterfly heads seem to get hit by my needle (yes I know I'm supposed to pull the pins out as I sew, but I get in a rush).

    1. Linda,
      I've never used glass headed pins, but I'm going to have to try that. I remove my pins, but sometimes I get to sewing and forget - great tip!

  10. Hands down my favorite notion is the Clover fork pins. They are so awesome to hold the seams just right and go on each side of the seam when joining blocks

  15. Thank you for a great giveaway! The notion I can't live without is my little nipper scissors. It fits on my finger and is always in my hand to clip stray threads etc. My hand feels *naked* without it! LOL

  16. I just bought a new ruler - Bloc-Loc Half Square Triangle Square Up Ruler. I had a kit that involved 192 half square triangles. Boy, did it help me square those things up!
