    Once Weekly

    When you have limited opportunity to craft, it can be terribly annoying to have time but no ideas. The desire to be creative is present, but sometimes it’s hard not to get bogged down in all the ordinary stuff, or else to be overwhelmed with prospects. I made this list of a year’s worth of weekly projects. I’m going to try and make something each week. Hopefully this will encourage me to blog weekly as well, ha ha ha.The purpose of these is not really to make something you love. It’s more to give you new ways to look at the world and new places to find inspiration, or just…

    Nifty Thrifty

    I know there are lots of people who dislike thrift stores. They’re often smelly, full of weird and dirty things, and who wants to think about where some of these items have been? Personally though, I LOVE them. Saturday morning was thrift shopping time for as far back as I can remember. I think it’s the possibilities that are so exciting. The hidden corners of old stores, what treasure might be hiding in the bins and racks. Things that you can’t find anywhere else. I think I’ve mentioned before I have an odd love of truly ugly 70’s things, thrift stores are the only place to find this stuff. Even…

    Patchwork Pretties

    I’ve been making these little patchwork quilts, and they are too much fun. (If you couldn’t tell, since I made seven of them!) They are lap or baby quilt sized, 36″ by 45″. You just need 20 10″ squares (I used a 1/2″ seam allowance) and then enough for the backing. It’s a goo way to use up some smaller pieces and really cute. The yellow floral is from some recycled pillow cases. The little alphabet print is the focus fabric, I got it from my college sewing instructor. I got this little cowboy print from my sewing instructor too. I love the red and grey with it, and there’s…

    Birds of a Feather

    Here was the other item I got on my trip to Hobby Lobby. Cute little day of the week heat transfers with birds. This was actually purchased with another project in mind, but they ended up being something to fill up my lunchtime at work.

    Cute as a Button

    Once again I have taken forever between updates and once again, here’s a mass of posts at once. Oh well. There is a serious lack of fabric stores in and around Charlotte. I don’t get to Hobby Lobby very often, since there isn’t one really close. But when I do get there, I always find something adorable. For example, this fabric! I love the colors, especially the shades of green and the pale blue with the dark pink. I have been looking FOREVER for a bag of assorted buttons that doesn’t suck. I use a lot of single buttons on bags and other projects. So I was super excited to…
