Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St.Patrick's Day!
It's very quiet in our house this morning,
even though all the children are off school:)
They decided a lie in was needed!
I have something green to share with you
on this the greenest day of the year!

Free Motion Quilting gloves

Ok, not very Irish!

I was reading some other quilting blogs recently and came across someone who reccommended gardening/working gloves as an alternative to proper - made for the purpose - quilting gloves. I ran off to our nearest hardware store and purchased these, not the height of fashion, but they are super for free motion quilting. They're also a lot cheaper than the conventional quilting gloves:)

I have no idea what the true purpose of these gloves are, but they are coated with a bubbly rubber surface on the palm side and a knitted fabric on the back.


Bobbins at the ready, I'm all set to go!

  1. You purchased probably the best gardening gloves I have ever worn. The green rubbery fabric protects your hands from thorns when pruning roses and the knit fabric on the back allows your hands to "breathe" in the glove.

    I wore a pair for quilting until I found a pair of "Machingers" on a clearance shelf.
