Craft Room Curtain Panels

Did you get a chance to see my newly-completed craft room?  If not, check it out here.  I can’t even tell you how much I love it!  I do want to clarify one point.  I often call this my sewing room (or craft room, studio, workroom, etc.), and all of my sewing prep and some…

My Sewing Room is Finished!

Oh boy, do I have something to show to you today. When my husband and I were newlyweds, I didn’t have many craft or sewing supplies.  What I did have fit in a box, and that was stuffed in a closet somewhere.  Sometime after we bought our first house, I progressed to a stack of…

Hot Pad of the Month–June Bear Paw

I wanted to get this month’s hot pad to you before Father’s Day, because I made this one with the guys in mind.  They might not be the obvious recipients of something like this, but it’s definitely something they can use.  It can sit on a desk for their coffee mug – if they’re anything…

Be Our Guest Lamp

Our daughter got married last year.  That left us with an extra room in our house and all that talk of “someday, when we have a guest room…” finally meant something.  Ironically, the most common guest would likely be that same daughter.  However, since there may be others sprinkled in, we decided not to leave…

Tassel Graduation Card

My husband is the youngest of seven children, and every one of those families has two or three kids.  That sounds like the beginning of a story problem, but what it really means is that high school graduations have been coming fast and furious for the last few years.  That’s not even addressing the bunch…

Hot Pad of the Month–May Ladybug

May is always crazy around our house, and this year has been no exception, so I’m sliding in sideways at the last minute with the hot pad for this month.  I think she’s pretty cute, so hopefully  you’ll find she was worth the wait. You’ll need this pattern, which is the same basic outer shape…

Star Wars Pillowcase on Undercover Tourist

This may be a little weird, but sometimes my family travels with our own pillowcases.  It’s not a germaphobe thing and it’s not a comment on the boring bedding provided by our hotel.  Okay, it’s a little bit of that last one, but it’s also just a cheerful thing to add a little personality to…
