See, I told you I’ve still been busy with creative projects! After finishing homeschooling this past spring (after sixteen years – WOW! It’s a transition time for sure), I have some more time now with which to photograph and write about said projects! Below is more dishcloth knitting. Sometimes I just start a dishcloth on… Continue reading More Colourful Home Decor Projects
I keep scrolling on the internet, reading stories about how one of my favourite bloggers/writers touched people’s lives. She had a far bigger impact than I realized. I sure will miss her blogs, books, and snarky comments online when challenged by power-hungry leaders who probably felt threatened by her bravery and intellect. All that reading today makes me think,… Continue reading Fun Decor and Fabrics
As always, I continue to dream up new projects or finish ongoing ones! Here are the latest of my thrifty home decor projects. Remember a couple of YEARS ago when I started making crocheted beaded edge blue snowflakes? Finally, here is the finished banner they were intended for. I did use five shades of blue… Continue reading New Thrifty Home Decor Projects
Lately, to relax, I’ve been puttering. Creatively puttering, that is. It is difficult for me to just sit and play with art and craft materials without an end product in mind, because I think I need to be productive – must. produce. something (or must tend to some urgent task)! And yet, children creatively putter… Continue reading Playing with Colour and Pattern
Last summer I heard about a free sectional couch (yes, from a clean home) being put to a curbside, and it was in good condition. It was hauled into a garage for us, and my husband picked it up a few days later. I’d been wanting a sectional couch for awhile, simply because it would… Continue reading First Time Project: Canvas Slipcover For Couch
I seem to be making a lot of personal and gift projects these past few months! I have some craft show projects on the go, too, such as in the last photo of this post (and I’ll post more photos as those projects are finished); but making personal projects has been fulfilling, too. First up… Continue reading Personal Sewing and Knitting Projects Again!
Hello! Long time, no hear; I know. For me, craftwise, 2016 was somewhat of a writeoff. I made the decision back in May that I would not be participating in craft shows last year. I needed to tend to some family and personal matters and just didn’t have the steam to prepare for shows for… Continue reading Updating With Home Projects
Last summer I experimented with making my own sunhat pattern. I was quite pleased with how the hat turned out! Because I was so pleased, I immediately began picking out fabrics to make another one. Because, it’s just fun to make things when you are pleased with your own design. 😀 I poked around in… Continue reading Watermelon Silk Sunhat, Beaded Crocheted Flower Blanket, and Lime Green Bag
Value Village had a 50% off bedding sale a few weeks ago, so I took advantage. Just look at these beautiful cotton floral sheets I found!!! I love the blue and green floral on the blue and white stripes in the first photo. And the sheets in the second photo…the thrifted fabric is very sturdy… Continue reading Floral Sheets and Colourful Projects!
I posted awhile ago some photos of granny circle squares I was working on. Last night, I decided to lay out the squares to see how big of a blanket each colourway would make. I discovered that somewhere along the way, I had mistakenly switched to a smaller crochet hook (that thought had been nagging at… Continue reading Granny Square Blankets and Vintage Sheets!
