This is maybe one of the easiest ways – if not the easiest – to make an ironing board cover. I’ve made two or three covers and this will be the next way I make one.
A podcast about quilting bees – I love bees, sewing with friends or for friends, and only wish I had easier access to the mail so I could participate in an easy manner. Shipping is expensive from here. I have joined one bee and did swaps over the summer and I hope to join at least a few more swaps during the year. I do have this Block Party book and love it, even if it’s a few years old, the stories along with the block instructions are fun.
My daughter goes through stages of her creativity – she draws, paints, colors, uses colored pencils, etc. I’ve taught her – or attempted to teach her – how to crochet, sew, doing embroidery, and more. The other day she asked again about embroidery and I explained it to her and we looked at some examples around the house. I got a membership to the Alphabet Motif Club and am going to have her work on it.
And what a fitting way to end this week’s finds with something awesome. Turns out I’m a part of the TNRPIMPQ. Sweet.
