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
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
I live with my local-guitar-teacher husband and two teens in a semi-rural area that has a lot of housing development but no public transit within walking distance. And we have one vehicle. We’ve managed to work out the logistics of this over the years, but today I needed to get out with no agenda, no errands,… Continue reading A Much-Needed Day Out
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 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!

I’m happy to report that so far, we haven’t had a ton of snow, and this week we’ve had pretty mild temperatures. A lot of snow… Continue reading February Already! Not Much Snow! Yay! Projects!

I have a few Christmas projects to share, along with fabrics in gingham, stripes, florals, and dots patterns! The above photo is of a bright red kitchen towel that my husband gave me for Christmas (he knows I love red, such as in this red suede leather wristlet I made – the red leather was… Continue reading Gingham, Stripes, Florals, Dots; Christmas Decor
I took a break from “mass production” of products during the past couple of months. Instead, I worked on various personal projects, such as a ukelele bag and a yellow patchwork comforter cover. The first resulted from a request from my husband who teaches guitar for a living. He asked if I could make a… Continue reading Ukelele Bag and Yellow Patchwork Comforter Cover
