Things You Can DIY

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

DIY is not a new idea of course! I was thinking of some things my sister and I make at home that are quick and easy and thought I’d share them once in awhile. Sometimes, I think some DIY things aren’t really worth my time….tortillas. It was fun to make them and say I made […]

I’ve Been Sewing

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

I haven’t sewn since little guy needed a romper a couple years ago. (ok “needed”). Before that, I probably hadn’t sewn for 18 years. But recently, I found some fabric that made me excited to sew. So, I made myself a few things and now I’m sewing for little guy. I’ve been having so much […]

Knitting

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

I haven’t been knitting very much lately. I always want to but time runs out. Or else when I have time, I’m just too tired to concentrate. I have several “want to knit” items lined up that I need to tackle pretty soon. I joined a mystery knit along. I’ve never done this before but […]

Coloring

Monday, October 26th, 2015

While I was recuperating, I did a little coloring. I really like the art of Karla Dornacher and so before my surgery, I ordered one of her coloring books. I chose the Garden Blessings book. I’ve used my Prisma Color pencils for years and really love them. If you like to color, you’re going to […]

A Little Craft Tip

Monday, August 17th, 2015

I may be just a little bit too excited about this but I just realized I could send my knitting patterns to my kindle app and always have it on my phone. When I save a knitting pattern as a pdf, I just have to email it to my kindle app (instructions for this are […]

Nailed It?

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

A few days ago, a link for a tutorial to make a sunflower wreath was making the rounds on Facebook. It’s so pretty that I figured I’d give it a try. The paper mesh in yellow is sold out, but I heard you could try poly mesh (plastic). I found poly mesh at the craft […]

Almost There…

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

I’ve been working on this blanket since we found out that I should buy blue yarn! I’m almost done! I’m happy to be nearly finished because I’m itching to get started on some super cute hats!

Finished

Monday, February 25th, 2013

I finally finished the teddy bear I knit for the baby. This is the first animal  I’ve knit. I took a loooooong break. I don’t think I touched it since December.   I think the ears aren’t quite right and the face…hmmm not sure! But at least I’m done. Now all we have to do […]
