With all my craft catastrophes lately, you may be surprised to hear that this morning I hosted a get-together for my friends and our kids with the sole purpose of creating spring crafts. I just had to get back on the horse and try again; can't let bad craft karma get me d...more
Let me just start by saying that "Railroaded fabric is your friend." That is the way the fabric will be placed on your piece. If the pattern is regular or "up the roll" then you or your upholsterer will have to turn the fabric, to make the pattern face right way up. this causes more waste, and you will have to buy more yardage.
A little bohemian, gypsy, pirate, redneck, beach bum, southern bell, etc I have always been a Free Spirit, not a planner. I don't worry about things. Even before I knew about Jesus as my savior, I knew who Jesus was, because I went to Church and Sunday School. But, I did not know the Savior, Saved part until I was 27!

I've had a new Bright Idea. Literally. You know those Virgin of Guadalupe candles you can get at the grocery store? I like them so much, I always have at least one around, and when we were trailer-traveling, we used an empty one as a night light, with a rechargeable, battery operated candle inside. They're nice enough, those candles, but they're kind of crummy when you look at them long enough, and they're intended to be disposable, which troubles me....more
It was 4 a.m, I lay quietly in bed, barely able to contain myself. This day had special significance, it was goal setting time. I was hungry with anticipation and quietly rolled down the covers, slipped into my robe and tip toed into the kitchen....more
For this project, you will need bowl of hot, slightly soapy water, a bowl of cold soapless water, carded wool, scraps of 100% wool felt, a needle and thread, warm water and warm hands. As posted previously, carded wool (or “wool roving”) can be purchased at local farms, craft stores o...more
