Hot Pad of the Month–July Pineapple

My husband and I will be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary next summer, and we decided a long time ago that we would go on a cruise to celebrate.  Since we’re about a year away, we’ve been doing some shopping, and the locations we’re considering have me in a VERY tropical mood.  As luck would…

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…

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…

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…

Craft Show Vendor Apron

First, can I just say how happy I am that craft shows are so popular again?  I remember the school and church bazaars from many years ago, and in fact participated in a few when my kids were very small.  They were always an eclectic mix of products, most from people just looking to make…

Earth-Friendly Crafts

It’s been a busy week here, what with my sewing room update and learning a new art, but I can’t share either of those things yet.  Trust me, once they are completely finished, you’ll be hearing ALL about both.  In the meantime, since it’s the day we celebrate our big, blue marble, so I’d like…
