Friday Favorites–Craft Tools You Can Make

As you’re reading this, I’m loading up my sewing machine to take it to the shop.  What’s even more sad – I dropped my other machine off there on Monday.  Ugh.  My husband says machine #2 just misses her buddy.  I thought by having two machines I had a backup so I’d never be without…

Hot Pad of the Month–January Mitten

Talented Tuesday Link Party #60

Wow – it feels like we’ve been away for longer than just two weeks!  How were your holidays?  Mine were great, and I’m refreshed and ready to get back to work.  We’re wishing Lindi from Love Create Celebrate well this week, as she’ll be leaving our party to spend more time with her sweet little…
