Remember these? Me too and they were not pretty! They were usually made of eye searing bright cotton webbing and sported stripes running through the middle. They looked like they were straight out of the.....well, 80s! I guess because they were. ;-)
I decided to update these cute little belts with a more modern style. They're easily customizable, ...read more
Looking for a fun St. Patrick's Day project that doesn't involve stinking up the house with cooked cabbage? (I actually really love corned beef and cabbage, just not the smell associated with it!)

Sometimes, though, the quilts are not a gift for myself so the mug rugs do not necessarily match ...read more
