At the beginning of the year, I challenged myself to complete one UFO (Unfinished Object) a month. Unfortunately, I did not make it through the entire year, but I have to say that I didn't do terribly.  I finished a total of eight UFO's this year, which is eight more than normal, so I'm going to call the challenge a relative success.

My latest project was a quilted wall hanging called Santa and Rudy in the Photo Booth.

It features Santa and Rudolf getting their photos made in a photo booth.  I found the pattern at the AQS quilt show in Knoxville a few years back.  So incredibly cute.  I hand appliqued and hand quilted this wall hanging and it will make a great holiday decoration.

Here is your latest Block of the Month free pattern!  I am a huge fan of Redwork Embroidery.  Because the design is outlined with very little filled areas, redwork is quick and easy to complete. And it is the centerpiece for my new Free Quilt Pattern series- Words to Live By.

Do you love beautiful fall decorations, but are not a huge fan of carving up that pumpkin?  Me too.  It can make a huge mess, and working with a knife can get pretty scary.  Not the kind of scary that works for me.  But there are lots of great ways to decorate a pumpkin that don't involve a big knife.  I found 9 super amazing decorating ideas for No-Carve Pumpkins that I think you will love!

Each of these ideas is super unique!  There are lots of great ways to decorate your home with a pumpkin that don't involve scariness, burning candles and big knives.  Here are just a few!

Well, I really meant to get this project finished and posted mid summer when watermelon was totally the thing, but life got busy and I just now finished this project!  Better late than never, I guess.  You see, I found some amazing yarn that creates it's own pattern while you knit and made a fun pair of watermelon socks!

I put together my own version of a Basic Sock knitting pattern to share with you and would love to show you some fun yarn by Abi Grasso.

I really enjoy knitting socks.  The husband says that I could save myself a lot of trouble and just drive down to Wal-Mart where I can get a pack of five socks for $6.00.  He doesn’t understand the concept of buying $30.00 worth of wool yarn and laboring for weeks with five tiny double pointed knitting needles.

I’m fine with that.  Some things he just may never understand.  As long as he doesn’t cut off my yarn budget, I won’t leave my double points anywhere that he might sit down.  Deal?

Ever have that little issue when nobody knows if the dishes in the dishwasher are clean or dirty?  Since I'm the only one that actually uses the dishwasher, generally I'm the only one that knows the answer to that question.  So I created a simple way for the family to tell if dishes are clean or […] Read the full article →
