Today I thought I'd show you the project that our CQTeers group did at our last meeting. The door to my sewing room doesn't want to stay open so a doorstop was in order and why wouldn't I want to have a cute little fellow like this?....
Pattern is from Wee Folk Art
and can be found HERE.
This one is made up of all straight stitches.
Three rows of Herringbone stitch.
Another simple one made up entirely of straight stitches with some French knots.
- Awhile ago I shared a link for making Twiddle Muffs for Alzheimer's and Dementia patients and I've just come across another great item that would be helpful. Go HERE for that. If you want to see some great ideas for things you could include, just Google 'Fidget Mats' or 'Alzheimer's Mats'.
- HERE's an easy fix alteration for waistbands in jeans that tend to gap at the back and there's another variation in the video found HERE. And if you need to shorten a pair of jeans, there's a great tutorial HERE that allows you to keep the original hem.
- If you happen to have little boys in your life, perhaps you might find something you'd like to make them from THIS list. AND - if you go HERE you can find a tutorial and a link to the free pattern to make your little one a great bucket hat for summer.
It's finally turned summer here! I'm happy, although I could rather do without the humidity. So I thought this quote from Warren Buffett was appropriate..."Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago"
