Craft Room

All the activities that take place in the craft room.

Just wanted to take a minute to share some of the projects that Michelle and I have planned. To begin with, check back later in the day. I promised a new animal bookmark, and we have a cutey to share! I just need the add a few finishing touches andRead More →

Just received this month’s copy of Living Crafts. If you haven’t seen this lovely magazine, we highly suggest you check it out! This month includes wonderful blocks for knit farm mats, some lovely felted ornaments, incredible candles from nature AND a hobby horse, using a sock. Wee Folk Arts December’s craftRead More →

There are many crafts that I do, most of which provide immediate gratification. Scarves and mittens, wee folk and dishcloths, skirts and sweaters, can all be finished in a relatively short amount of time. But there is something so rewarding in taking on a “big” project. I always have atRead More →

It’s not a shocker that both Michelle and I would embrace the same craft at the same time. We seem to travel in pairs, so we’re exposed to the same things, at the same time. I happened to be born with a pair of knitting needles in my hand, whichRead More →

Looking at our blog to date, it seems we’ve offered very little for boys. Our apologies to all the wee men out there! Believe me, Bug has not been overlooked over the years, however, we’ve been rather fixated on girl projects the past few weeks. For all of you craftersRead More →

There’s an old maxim…You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. I’d now like to start a new one…you can’t make a drop dead gorgeous outfit out of a potato sack! When Michelle asked me to “cuten up” a couple of plain jumpers, I tried, I reallyRead More →

About this time each year, I begin to fill a basket with homemade Christmas gift items. While making them, I don’t have a particular recipient in mind. They are usually things I can make in an evening or two, and ultimately they find their way into stockings or as aRead More →

Today we taught the kids a new marble game. It didn’t take long before they were making up their own games! Pixie saw it as a new twist on “put and take”! Watching them play convinced me of one thing…we need more marbles! Fortunately, I’m working on a few projects right nowRead More →

  Finally had a chance to finish the vintage apron tutorial. Had a wee bit of trouble with my camera and the quality of the pictures leaves a little to be desired. I assumed my camera was broken. Tim assumed I hadn’t read the manual. He was right! It’s amazing the thingsRead More →

We went to visit my mom and dad yesterday. (Hereafter known as Nana and Papa.) My mom brought out two jumpers she bought for Pixie and Fairy. She got them at the senior center where she plays bridge. Seems the senior women’s club was running a fund raiser, and sheRead More →

  I’m very excited. Just got in my new copy of the fall Living Crafts magazine. Our friend, Tina, at Squirrel Acorns blog, introduced us to it last spring. The magazine premiered last winter, and yes, I did buy the back issue, and since that time I’ve devoured each issue.Read More →

 Our house guest has gone so I was able to get back in the sewing room and make Pixie’s jumper. I made just a little change on the border location on the skirt, but I’m pleased with both of them! Unfortunately, this is doing nothing to squelch my anxiousness for Fall! It’s still aRead More →
