"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.

Advent Tree and Christmas Tree Decorations  - patterns by Alan Dart

My beautiful snowy white Alan Dart Advent Tree is done! And so are all 25 little ornaments! And a whole month to spare before December 1.

And if you are a fairly quick knitter, you could easily finish your very own tree before Advent season begins. Instant download here!!

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!
