I have succumbed





I'm learning to look at shapes and lines...



















because I've fallen in line with this blogland trend.

















Nothing is safe any more.



Except that now, I think I need to repaint my living room.

linky love

more things I'd like to make:

  • another zipper pouch, this one with a reverse applique patch

now if only I could tear myself away from the computer long enough to get anything done...

the sound of...


















Do they say ping? click? clunk?




















Whatever it is, it's the sound of happiness... of contentment... of anticipation... of domesticity, even.

11 half-pint jars of bread-and-butter pickles, and 7 pints of sandwich-ready sliced dills.

I can't wait!

linky love

I totally want to try this ... silk screening has always been one of those mysterious things that I thought I could never do. Now it looks attainable!

A pattern for a headwrap - I'm growing my hair out right now, and NEED a way to keep in controlled... it's driving me nuts!

Pretty collapsible boxes... always useful.

Again with the growing hair pain... a free pattern for a bucket hat.

A cool thing to do with mini tins... I'm incapable of throwing those things out. I love little containers!

Not for everyone, perhaps... how to make a Regency bonnet. I love costuming!
