  We would like to thank Stacy for sharing this recipe for Mulligatawny Soup. I Love Mulligatawny soup. We use to vacation every year in Vermont, and there was a restaurant that had this on its menu. I’d think about it throughout the year, and it was always one ofRead More →

I got a chance to make Bug a darker vest for his pirate costume (check out the pirate shirt un-pattern here) and took a bunch of pictures along the way. Here is the Dress Up Vest Un-Pattern or you can find it in our Free Patterns Section. I will alsoRead More →

One of the very first patterns we shared with our readers over a year ago was our Treasure Pouch. It was meant to be a spare pocket for the wee ones when they went on walk-abouts. It was made out of felt and flannel. They still use them constantly, butRead More →

To make this apple orchard you will need to use a scroll saw, a dremel and a drill. I am a VERY novice woodworker, and have no tips or suggestions for how to use this equipment. I’m learning as I go, trying to be as careful as possible, but wouldRead More →

The Woven Spider Wheel Stitch is a versatile stitch that I use often. It makes a circular, raised stitch appropriate for flowers, apples, polka dots, etc. It winds up being raised, giving it a wonderful 3-D effect. Obviously, I love this stitch, and although it might seem difficult, with aRead More →

I’ve had a few people mention the fabric in the rug and I got an email asking me what fabric I used. I almost always make note of the fabrics I’m using, but for some reason I didn’t on this one. I bought the fabric at JoAnns. I got itRead More →
