    Yesterday was a crafting day for me. I made several projects, but wanted to share three of them. These are cards. My favorite one is the quilted one, but I also like the teacup one. All of them were easy to make, but very complicated. It took forever to piece the quilt card. The doily on...
  2. Christmas
    I'm in a very crafty/decorating mood lately and have been making lots of Holiday decorations and Christmas presents. My asthma has been flaring for about 3 months now, and I have to spend most of my time at home to avoid anything that could set me off, and because the cough syrup that I need to...

    I've taken a look at past posts from previous years and saw that a virtual crafting weekend retreat was held and was quite popular at the time. Would anyone be interested in one this month or in December? It's where we choose a weekend (Friday/Saturday/Sunday) to craft at home and post online...

When I wrapped their gifts,I attached each one to their gift as a name tag.They loved them,the little ones knew exactly which gift...

    I thought it might be fun to have a weekly newsletter with a theme for we sewers to get in the creative mood for the weekends. So here's the first one and hopefully an inspiration. ---------------------~~~--------------------- This week's theme is Spring! What sewing projects are great for...

    I'm in the middle of posting on my blog about the usefulness of crafts. And it spawned a question -- is it actually frugal to do crafts that don't serve a useful purpose? Things like macrame, beading, cross-stitch -- things that make a couple pretty trinkets and decorations, but don't actually...

    Yet another quick question (I probably could have combined this with my other post but I just thought of it now...): When you're on mat leave, if you make any money crafting, do you need to declare that as income? I'm not trying to cheat the system, but I was just cuious if the occasional $50...

    Hello, everyone. I have been lurking on this site for a few days and decided to join. There are so many kindred spirits here that I feel really comfortable joining. I have learned a lot from all of the posts I've read in this short period of time. I am especially glad to find out that I'm not...

    Has anyone done this? We were going to operate it through the church, but our minister doesn't want us to store anything there. We've decided to meet there to knit, and possibly do other smallish handwork we can carry with us. But any sewing will be done in one of our homes and will operate...

    Is anyone crafting this summer? I have a couple of UFOs on the needles in my knitting basket, a bag to carry my treasures at the flea market and a scarf that will be a Christmas gift. I have a quilt that I need to finish quilting, I never tend to do much except piecing in the summer because I...

    Every year during Memorial Day weekend I make new cemetary bouquets for several family graves at a nearby cemetary.  I make a red, white, and blue one with a flag for DH's dad, who was a veteran, and the rest all match each other.  This year the rest of them will have miniature roses in purples...

    I am making the wreaths where you use the heavy (like particleboard) cardboard wreath shape and glue candy to it. I've painted the circles and was hot glueing a bit of lace to them to spruce it up a bit. Well wouldn't you know it, I ran out of lace. I had not measured before I got the lace...

    I am getting some stuff ready so when I want to make something I can just sit down and do it. It will also be nice incase I have the surgery soon. Yesterday, I made up 5 kits. I made kits for 2 gingerbread men (1 girl, 1 boy), 2 snowmen (1 girl, 1 boy), and 1 Knotted doll. I got them all cut...
