Spirit Led Crafts - Valentine's Week

Posted by Carol B of ET on February 21, 2017 at 8:22am 2 Comments

Thank you for reading my blogs.  

What a crazy week starting with the weekend before Valentine's day.  My husband and I were sort of anticipating a 'surprise' visit from our youngest son, Kyle.  He is a Valentine's baby and knows how much I hate driving in Dallas, Tx.   This year was different.  Saturday we got a late afternoon call from Darren, (3rd child of 4 and youngest twin).  They were going to have a get together for family and friends on Sunday.  So, fast plans for a…

Lotsa Hearts

One UFO finish

Posted by Sandra Paananen on February 20, 2017 at 11:43am 4 Comments

Making a commitment to sew at least an hour everyday has paid off with the completion of this quilt top.  It has been kicking around in my UFO basket for at least 8 years as cut pieces to make pinwheel blocks.  It feels good to be done with the top and to move on to something else.

High Fiber—Altered States

Posted by Peggy Stuart on February 20, 2017 at 8:30am 2 Comments

Last week I started working on a doll sweater pattern to help people learn how to make steeks using a small project.

Most of us are intimidated by steeks until we make something using this technique.…

A little birdie told me...

A little birdie told me it is Pam Nieman's birthday today.  Is that right, Pam?  If so - Happy Birthday!!!!  Have a great day!  (The world's a little better place just because you were born.)
