1. There's a great recipe for making your own laundry detergent on Shawkl's site HERE. I've often thought of trying one of the 'formulas' that I've seen and this one sounds particularly interesting. Cheap too!!
2. Mary Corbett has found a really interesting (and free) embroidery pattern book online. It's one of the old ones and, therefore interesting to me. Go HERE to have a look at some of the treasures inside the book and to find the link to access it.
3. Also found via Mary Corbett is a good chart about how to identify fabrics with a burn test. Go HERE for the printable chart (just remember not to burn your house down while you're experimenting!!).

And, as promised, a picture of
my latest crazy quilting venture...
The background fabric is lightweight denim
(of the recycled sort, of course!!)
