Learning New Things

"All Points Patchwork" by Diane Gilleland. My First Project Done!

Repurpose a garment! Make it a showcase!

A couple years ago I fell in love with a particular selection of fabrics Diane (Craftypod) had picked for a project to be featured in what is now her brand new book "All Points Patchwork". After hours and hours of begging on my knees, she finally relented and gave me the left over scraps.

Embroidered Primstav

I have had so many inquires about my embroidered Norwegian Primstav calendar and I want to say to everyone who is following the progress made on this project, thank you so much for you patience and your interest. And for keeping this project uppermost in my mind. It is the first project I have touched in months and now I can't keep my hands and mind off of it! So again, thank you!

Bobbi Lewin Teaches Me To Crochet Tea Pot Cozies to Fit My Oddly Shaped Tea Pots!

Completed Tea Pot Cozy!

I am so excited to share my first ever tea cozy I can't stand waiting another minute!

Seriously, this project has been the most rewarding project I have engaged in so far this year. That is primarily because I literally learned to make a tea pot cozy without a pattern; and the experience left me feeling empowered! I have the tools now to make a crocheted (and most likely a knitted) tea pot cozy for any tea pot of any shape!
