January Hoop Art of the Month–I Heart You

Those of you who’ve been around here for a while might remember the Hot Pad of the Month series I started in 2015 that ended eighteen months later.  We could go back even further to the coffee cup sleeve series, which was way back in 2013.  Well, I’ve intended to start another monthly series, but…

Oregon (or your favorite state) Felt Ornament

I’ve lived in Oregon my entire life.  Traveling is one of my favorite things to do, but I love coming back to our rainy, moss-covered home.  I wanted to make an ornament to remind our wandering son of where his roots (and a lot of his stuff) still are, so I thought an on-the-nose outline…

Table Runner – Change with the Seasons

I’m currently sniffling my way through my first cold of the year, so I didn’t think I’d have anything new to share this week.  Sneezing and crafting do not go well together.  Not only do I not feel up to it, but if I tried to make something right now I can guarantee that I…

Autumn Leaf Hot Pad

If you spotted my Autumn Leaf Quilted Table Runner last week, you may have seen my comment about saving the scraps.  Well, this is what you were saving them for. You know how much I hate to throw away something that has any chance at getting used, so the leftovers from that project were no…
