I’m over at The Kim Six Fix today sharing two tutorials for Easter bunny wreaths. When I was planning the post I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to make a ruffled wreath or a non-ruffled one, so I just made both. Aren’t they cute? [Read more…]
I started this project so long ago that I can’t even remember. The Hubs says it’s been seven years and since he’s generally reliable, let’s go with that. :o) [Read more…]
One last St. Patrick’s Day tutorial to share before Easter projects take over my craft room – a quick ruffled fabric wreath with some cute little felt shamrock embellishments. [Read more…]
Eleven squares blocked and ready to assemble, and the last square is on the needles and halfway complete. We literally rang in March with tornado sirens early this morning (I’d say that counts as “in like a lion”!) and I’m determined to have this done before the April showers begin.
I’ve been on a mission to come up with new projects using just supplies and fabrics I have on hand. I had quite a few fabric scraps left over from last years St. Patrick’s Day table runner, so I pulled them out, cut them into 1-1/2″ strips, and made a pretty banner for my craft room window. I love how cheerful and springy this is, and it was so easy to make. [Read more…]
Snowdrops are blooming! It’s been a weird, wild, warm Winter here in Northeast Ohio. Things are far more green than normal for late February but it’s still lovely to see the first spring flowers.
Last year I made a 3D Valentine shadowbox and a 3D Easter egg shadowbox, and they were two of my favorite projects for the year. I drafted out the shapes for a shamrock version at the same time but didn’t get around to making it then, so I pulled out my scrapbooking paper over the weekend and got one done in time for this year’s decorating.

Hearts found in nature, DIY chocolate-covered strawberries to share and a sweet, geeky gift from my sweet, geeky hubby. Hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s Day!
I’ve been in a weird, restless, crafty mood lately. I have a lot of ideas half sketched out but I just can’t settle long enough to start anything big. I realize these are REALLY last minute, but I pulled out some odds and ends and, inspired by this post on Designed Improvised, made myself some Valentine’s Day wall art. [Read more…]
I started a Building Blocks afghan a year and a half ago as part of a class and stalled out 80% of the way through. I unearthed it during the craft room update and finally started working on it again. This is block 11 of 12, so it really shouldn’t take that long to finish. I’m determined to stick with it and get it done in time to actually use it before winter is over.
How about you? Any UFOs lurking in your craft room that you’d like to get done before spring?
