Homemade Fabric Kindle Cover

I finally made the Kindle cover for my Grandmother! I ordered the pattern from Birdiful Stitches on etsy probably well over a month ago. Didn’t want to rush into anything.

Finally, A Pillowcase

I finally made a pillowcase. Actually, I made two, but the first one got really messed up somehow. Seems to happen to me a lot. Anyway, I’m very happy with how it came out. I followed these directions from Amy Butler. They were very simple, and a great project for a beginner or maybe as […]

Creative Gift Giving From The Heart (And The Kitchen)

It’s very busy around here, as we are getting ready for Christmas. Lots of baking and creating going on. Many years back, we decided to pick names to exchange gifts rather than getting everyone in the family a gift. The family was getting bigger and money was getting tight. It was agreed upon that […]
