Many years ago I gave my friend some mittens for Christmas. I still remember them. I used the same yarn for both mittens, but knit different patterns into each so they were mismatched. They were whimsical and beautiful. My friend loved them. About a month later I got a teary phoneRead More →

Over the years I’ve probably made 1,457 baby quilts. Yeah, so I might be exaggerating a little bit, but seriously, I’ve made a lot. I have a favorite pattern, which I will be sharing soon, that is a quilt-as-you-go blanket and it is super easy to make. It begins byRead More →

  When it comes to drinking hot beverages, I’m the equivalent of being ambidextrous… I’m just as comfortable and content drinking coffee or tea. Of course, they both have their place.

Large ones can be used to wrap odd shaped presents like Teddy Bears and wooden trucks. They are great for holding lots of loose pieces, like a gathering of acorns or building blocks. No matter what size youRead More →

Pixie is a sorter. Actually, she was born a sorter. Seems like from the minute she could collect a stash of toys around herself, she was dividing things into piles. Sometimes the categorizations were self evident, other times, we just had to assume their was method to her madness 🙂 To this day, given a chance, she sorts.Read More →

This little shawl is what I made over those festive days. I followed the simple pattern Traditional Icelandic Three Cornered Shawl available from Ragga GoesRead More →

This is a project this kids and I did last fall. It was orginally post on Wee Folk Activities Oct 12, 2009. We used yarn but scraps of tissue paper or construction paper would work as well. For this week’s Unplugged Challenge theme Wheel, we made fuzzy yarn color wheels. WeRead More →

A few weeks ago Sonya, from A Toy Garden, sent along a few goodies for us to review. As it turns out, two of the items made there way into Pixie’s Rainbow Birthday Bowl, and now that she’s had time to play with them, we can give a kid’s perspective review.   Juggling Balls –Read More →

(You knew I would have to do this tutorial sooner or later 🙂 A couple of fun things happened in the past few weeks. First, a lovely reader sent us the book Magical Window Stars (thanks Sarah!) and second, we got a stack of kite paper from Bella Luna Toys.Read More →
