I received the cutest card from Pedro for Thanksgiving.
His sweet adopted grandparents mailed it for him from Missouri.
A big thank you to B&J for their help. Pedro kept it a big secret here at home.
Where the passions in my life collide.
I saw this video tutorial at Crafty Gemini.
With leftover charms from the latest charm school project, I created a holiday postcard. This first one is destined for the quilt shop.
I plan to make some more of these and send them out this year. The first one will be a test through the USPS to myself. I want to see how damaged it gets, I may have to mail them in mini manila envelopes so they get there in good shape. More later on the test results.
This is a fun way to use up scraps. I hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend.
"Thanksgivukkah is a pop-culture portmanteau neologism given to the convergence of the American holiday of Thanksgiving and the first day of the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah on Thursday, November 28, 2013. Thursday, November 28 will not fall during Chanukah again until the year 79811."Wishing you all a wonderful day with family and friends.
In my first attempt to sew with clear vinyl I created a test for a bus pass holder for my friend CatWithCats. It was a failure. The opening for the bus pass was too small.
They will be very cute and I will remake them this evening when I get home. It was a learning experience.
Vinyl is not the easiest thing to sew on/with. I used wax paper to sew on the vinyl and that worked well.
These may make up cute for gift card holders, would not need the hardware on them for that purpose.
At the beginning of the fall, I went through my bucket of bulky weights and decided it was time to destash, so I have been knitting hats to donate.
Today I emptied the bucket and saw that I have quite a few, so the plan is to visit Black Forest on Friday and give them to one of the disaster recovery groups to give out to the fire victims.
I still have yarn to knit and will keep these on the needles for days that I need a mindless project to work on.
In the spirit of thanksgiving, I am grateful for yarn and needles and the skill to use them. Knit On!
