I've Misplaced My Sewing Room

Okay, perhaps misplaced is not the right word. But I have definitely lost my little craft space. You might remember that it used to look like this.

Now it looks like this:

DH is turning it into a bathroom. We are very much in need of a new one. The room we have now is undoubtedly the ugliest in the world.

Fear not, though, I have learned a new hand piecing method that doesn't require a designated craft room.

English paper-piecing that can be done while sitting in front of a movie. Nice!

Hope you're having a crafty weekend, M

Well, Hello There

Please meet the newest member of our household. This is Stanley, a ten-week old rescue from a local 7-11 parking lot at 3am one chilly morning. Thanks to People For Animals for finding him!

He has a lot of gumption, this Stanley of ours. Having already figured out that he can make two large dogs move with his mighty hiss, he does it now just to prove he can! Quite adorable.

Stella is not so easily impressed with this latest addition to the family. In fact, she's trying to learn how to type so she can get a job and move out.


Sailor has decided she's going to hide in the bread bowl on top of the fridge until he goes away again.


But really? That was Saturday.

By Sunday evening, Stanley was chasing Sailor around the house and she was letting him chew on her tail.

By Monday night, Stella and Stanley were playing hide and wrestle around the desk chair.

This morning, Stanley let the dogs sniff him without a hiss being uttered.

Things seem to have settled down rather nicely, and it didn't even take that long.

Now, just to prove this is still a crafting blog, I present pot holders I made from this tutorial. Ta dah!!!


Hope you are having a very crafty spring! M

All Things Baby

I realize this page is quickly becoming nothing but baby and I do apologize for that, sort of. It's just a bit hard to do too much crafting these days, as much as I dearly want to. Currently, I'm on bedrest until the 15th as my back is being ornery.

Anyway . . . latest update - off to amnio test this morning. It's my birthday present. :) Let's hope it's a good result.

Plus we'll be finding out if we're having a boy or a girl. We're really hoping for one or the other. :)

Happy crafting to you! M
