#Sewing Hacks #SEW







1. Keep your needle pressed down into your machine

2. Buy cone thread if you sew a lot or use a coffee mug.

3. use rocks to hold your fabric down vs/pinning a lot faster to cut - flat smooth rocks are best.

4. use a glue stick to thread your needle in a pinch

5. hot glue your measuring tape to your table if you sew a lot.

6. zig zag your hems then roll and hem.

7. If you are new make friends with seasoned sewers for questions you run into.

8.  Buy a extra cheap sewing machine so you won't ever have to stop sewing!

9. Take apart old clothing you are done with and use for patterns.

10.  Get a magnet to pick up any lost needles that may wander.

11. use clear nail polish on top of bottons to make them last longer.

12. Use a chop stick to help you turn tight pieces inside or rightside out.

13. No matter how long you have been sewing read your entire machine manual and keep it handy - read it again periodically as a refresher. Know it like the back of your hand.

14. Change your machine needle frequently.

15. Press while you go to get that professional look.

Too Many Women #ENTERTAINMENT #MOTHERHOOD #MOTHER #KIDS

Image result for Too Many Women   Image result for june Lang


Neil Hamilton actor.JPG   This movie was made in the 1940's with June Lang and Neil Hamilton (later he starred in Batman) If you are a movie buff like me you will enjoy watching this oldie but goodie on youtube which is where I love watching all these oldies :) I used to have the kids all watch oldie movies like Pillow Talk, and Gidget movies, Stoogies, etc.. all happy fun stuff - plus good solid fun for the entire family. The nice thing about these movies is that they are totally FREE on youtube.  Laughter is like medicine and I think it is a wonderful thing to pass on to your kids to teach them joy and happiness. There have actually been people who have laughed themselves to health just by watching funny movies! With this movie it is a bunch of funny mishaps etc.. that lead from marriage to confusion, etc. Neil Hamilton pretends he inherits 3 million dollars  to fool his grandmother which spins everyone in this classic.

Loom peg


guage - space between one peg and another

Base of loom - where the pegs are fastened


Peg and Loom size are not the same - If the base size is the same that will be the size- one just has a tighter stitch the one with higher peg count.

A peg and a pattern stitch on same loom can be radically different - newbies do a trial piece

Loom shape does not determine finish product

You can also knit flat on any shape of Loom


odd numbers and even numbers Looms - on the extra peg you can do a extra knit or purl in a round pattern. - once in awhile you will fall into a specific loom pattern.

My weightloss goals and rant... #WEIGHTLOSS













Well, it's time..




I have had a busy summer but I haven't been happy with my progress in my weight loss..




I started out at 228 and now I am only down to a grand total of 218. I am doing portion control

and it is working. I am not going to do any fad diets as they may get you down quick but lots of times you just get back to where you were before, so at the end of the day it all ends up being the same...




Eat less

Proteins and veggies with min. Dairy and bread




All the other stuff is basically just stuff to keep me busy .. plus there is much to be said about being

Accountable..




and that is where I am at. I know I should lose about 2 lbs a week .. so that is where I am heading. So I wilbe sharing my progress with you my online friends. I am not going to start a weight loss group online, but rather as my friends online (http://www.twitter.com/R47R http://www.Face book.com/RuthiePople - you can usually find me here) I figure I will chat about my weight in my norm day to day plus please chat back if you are losing or not.. as bottom line I am trying to just do what I normally do and lose weight all the other things are just more work and the minute life hits I end up back to tricks eating that extra piece of cake etc.. simple eat less and be accountable. So watch me become half the woman I am .. :) May take awhile but it is happening.











Let's get social.... Join me on Topix.com http://www.topix.com/member/profile/ruthiepople123 #TOPIX #SOCIALMEDIA

If you were to hang with me face to face you would say RUTHIE! You are soo social.. I guess I am like God in this sense I just love people. To me all the social sites online are like going from one party to another. Here is a site you should friend me on http://www.topix.com/member/profile/ruthiepople123 I have been on Topix for awhile in some states it's a hot place to be in other places it is hardly uses. All said take some time to check it out and friend me on :) I have a link in my tabs for more spots but if you are social like me, it is hard to keep all of these sites updated but I did want to share this site so we could all get social - I like to keep my friends close :)

#COLOGATE TALKING #TOOTHBRUSH #PRODUCTREVIEW #HEALTH #BEAUTY


I go to the dentist more than most people because of acid reflux. I am crazy fussy about my teeth because of it. Even though I take medication for acid reflux I still have to stay on top of it. Acid reflux literally destroys your teeth.. so why would I share this about a child’s toothbrush review.. Teach your kids while they are small to take excellent care of their teeth. Dental work is expensive and I have the cancelled checks to show it. If they love brushing 3 x a day , flossing and cleaning after each meal they will have good dental health and you will save yourself and them as they are older a million in dental bills. A talking toothbrush will get them encouraged to see the “value” in this. Kids, teens and even adults get lazy about their dental work but if you start them off small they will embrace this much needed practice.. To be honest no matter what age a person is even if you have a teen in your house get them this tool and even make a joke of it say if you have a 18 year old male still living home .. anything that keeps us with good dental health is such a great tool. All said I loved this toothbrush I got a kick out of the encouragement and think that every family should have these for their family :) Just a good note.. I have no cavities! I love brushing and flossing and rinsing etc.. I have always been a good brusher but even with all that I had a acidity mouth.. some people have a base mouth and don’t get cavities like others- but the key is no matter what kind of mouth.. brushing will save you big at the dentist so get this brush and save your teeth!
