I’ve been busy making gnomes. One of my grandsons wants to go on the end-of-the-year trip to Washington D.C. and New York City. Because he has some medical challenges due to a rare disease called Prune Belly Syndrome, he will have to take an adult with him which means it is double the money toContinue reading “Gnomes Galore!”

This isnt a how to post. I just wanted to show some flowers I made from my Ugly Fabric as part of my Ugly Stash series. I started with this fabric. As a flower, the fabric looks a lot better. I glued a button in the center. I also made an orange one from scrapsContinue reading “Fabric Flowers”
This post is part of my Ugly Stash series. What to do with Ugly Fabric? I had so much fun making these rag tassels from my Ugly Stash and from ribbons and beads that I didn’t want to stop but I had to because I didn’t know what to do with them once they wereContinue reading “Rag Tassels”
Padded Phone Case with Pockets
I was tired of digging through my purse to grab my phone when I’m out and about so I made a phone case or pouch to hang off my purse.

Just thinking about organizing my fabric was daunting. I have fabric everywhere in my craft room. I have tried organizing it before but with limited space, I had few choices so it all ended up in big plastic totes and two dressers. Every time I need something, I have to dig into the totes andContinue reading “Organizing Fabric”
My Thread Catcher Attempt
I made so many mistakes on this that I hesitated sharing it but I like showing that I’m not perfect and nobody is. Maybe my mistakes will help someone else somehow. I should never sew when I’m tired and my back is sore because I just wind up powering through things and I make mistakesContinue reading “My Thread Catcher Attempt”
