i70Swap Project Update: What I Made

The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. Yep. My plan for the messenger bag went awry. I'm really disappointed that it didn't work out but I'll try that pattern again when I have some free time. What I wound up doing instead was simply winging it. My end...

And she’s knitting!

My knitting libido has admittedly been pretty low over the last few years. Add that to a meatball-related wrist injury and most of my attempts to pick up the needles have been short-lived and sporadic. The exception would be a wrap for my bro's MiL... but that will...

i70Swap Project: Hazel the Hedgehog

I love myself a swap. When I was more active on Ravelry, I organized and participated in many. When I saw the KC Modern Quilt Guild was organizing a swap with the Saint Louis Guild, I wanted in. The idea? Basically, I sew a block. Said block gets sent to my secret...

Quickie Sewing Projects: Tube Pillow Cases

I have been a pillow case making fool lately. Why? Umm... I don't know. Maybe because I'm a little OCD about projects sometimes. And maybe because this is a fun & quick project that only needs a little more than 1 yard of fabric. These have all gone to various kids....
