Mail Bag Pouch

Mail Bag Pouch

Last Autumn I participated in a mail themed swap. Each person made five of the same thing, all related to the theme of playing postman or mail time. For my contribution, I made a Mail Pouch, the perfect place for the letters and parcels to be delivered to. The pouch is based off of an … Continue reading

Very Mini Quilt Swap

Very Mini Quilt Swap

Recently, I participated in a very mini quilt swap on Instagram. Like less than 5 inches mini! It was a lot of fun, although the size definitely made it challenging. I had an awesome partner who loves awesome fabric (and cats), so she was a ton of fun to sew for… although she is also … Continue reading

Mr. Raccoon Loves the Rain

Mr. Raccoon Loves the Rain

When I saw the pattern to make a little felt raccoon, complete with raincoat and galoshes, in Cynthia Treen Studio’s Etsy shop, I couldn’t resist. I ended up stitching him up for my son’s seventh birthday (how is he already seven?). The pattern was fairly easy to follow, since I have made many three-dimensional felt … Continue reading

Fabric Chess Board

Fabric Chess Board

It was a Book Brunch, with a massive amount of baked goods I made,  a craft project, friends … Continue reading

Holy Week

Holy Week

Today is already Monday of Holy Week. Yesterday we celebrated both Palm Sunday and the little guy’s birthday! (How is he 6 already? Seriously?) And Lent has sped by! Our Lenten spiral is almost full of candles, meaning Easter is almost here: This week when we add a candle, we will say the Collects for … Continue reading

More Candlemas Fun

More Candlemas Fun

I just wanted to share a couple other Candlemas related goodies. I participated in a wonderful Waldorf swap for the holiday, for which I made wooden St. Brigid’s figures (it was a Candlemas/St. Brigid/Imbolc swap). One side is St. Brigid, the other a candle. They are made from poplar and were wood-burned and water-colour painted. … Continue reading
