Today, because I have lots of mumblings to share, I think I won't subject you to what I've been working on. Suffice to say one ball of yarn does not a pair of socks make (argh!) and on a positive note, applesauce happened.
Most of you know that Pam Kellogg has passed the reins of the crazy quilting magazine over to the capable hands of Lisa Boni. The first issue under her guidance is now available HERE! I'm listed as one of the Editorial Assistants on this publication so please check it out!
AND - many of you will remember me posting a link to the latest '30 Days To Less' challenge that was happening all throughout October on Becki's blog. Now she has come up with another challenge that will last all year and help with your decluttering and downsizing (AND it's fun too!). Go HERE to read her post to find out more.
AND, in the interests of it never being said that this is not a full-service blog (hah!), I've discovered something (with thanks to Maureen!) that I thought I should share with you. If you, like me, are having a hard time reading some of the small print online, try simultaneously using your 'Ctrl' and the '+' buttons on your keyboard. Click until you reach the size that's comfortable for reading. My cataracts are thanking you Maureen!!
- The weekly newsletter from Inspirations had a bit about THIS artist and I must admit I was wowed by what she does! Be sure to look through all her galleries.
- THESE are really cute - and would make great decorations (and gifts too!)
- Bonnie Hunter has just announced the beginning of her new mystery Quiltalong and you can read all about it HERE.
- I'm seeing a lot of pocket shawls showing up 'round and about the internet so thought I'd share an easy crochet version HERE that looks like it would be a quick-make for Christmas giving.
- If you're in the gnome-liking camp, perhaps one of THESE would be fun to have on display over the Christmas season - and with a simple change of colour, any time of the year.
- THIS takes you to part one of a great tutorial to make fabric moths (no - not the type the eats your woolens!!). If you scroll to the bottom of the post you will find links to the remaining parts of the tutorial.
Today, instead of a quote, I'm going to share something that had both Resident Chef and I in tears of laughter. Hopefully you will enjoy it too!
