Hot Pad of the Month–January Mitten

Technically, since I started this series last February, this should be my last Hot Pad of the Month.  I’ve gone back and forth over the last month on whether I should continue, or go ahead and call it.  I have more designs I’ve sketched that I’d love to try, but how many is too many? …

Phone Charging Mat with Cord Loop

I may be the only person out there with the particular set of circumstances that created this problem, but I’m going to share my solution anyway.  It’s a unique, easy to make gift that anyone with a phone could probably use, even if it’s not for the same reasons I created it in the first…

Felt and Wire Feather Ornaments

By now you might have noticed how much I like to play with felt and wire, especially at Christmas time.  Remember the angels, the cookies, the cinnamon sticks, or even the cameras from last year?  Well, this year, it’s feathers.  These ornaments are so easy and fun, I had to stop myself before I had…
