and while I was at it, I made
The pattern for the socks is 'Get To Work!-Baby Socks' by Laura Sapergia and can be found HERE. The mittens came from a generic plain baby mitten that I changed the colours around to make them match the socks.
- There is a really sweet little pincushion pattern HERE. This pattern is definitely a keeper!! Perfect for gift-giving.
- If you have little ones in your life that want to help out in the kitchen, how about making them an apron? Go HERE for that.
- I would imagine many of you have the same issue as I do with messy cords lying about. There's a fun solution HERE that uses up scrap fabrics....win/win.
- Kathy Shaw has opened registrations for her FREE online traditional quilting class. Making mug rugs is the perfect way to learn how to sane quilt, as well as creating some useful items that you can either use yourself or give as gifts. Go HERE for further info (registration closes Aug. 31, so you'll have to hurry!).
Sometimes someone has a brain wave and wonders why they never thought of it before. Such is the case with the brilliant solution my DH came up with on the weekend. We went to the local market and came home with large 'bouquets' of kale and swiss chard. It, of course, needed to be washed and dried before refrigerating. DH had a lightbulb moment and you can see the results...
The veggies came with elastics around the stems to hold them together and simply hanging the clumps on the cupboard door handles directly above the sink makes for a perfect drainage system. Please ignore the messy counter though!
The quote for today came about when I researched possible quotes to reflect brilliant ideas and is from Sue Grafton...."Ideas are easy. It's the execution of ideas that really separates the sheep from the goats" I don't think I'll tell DH about this one - he might not like the comparison!
