Fabric painting is something I’ve really enjoyed doing with my grandchildren. This time, Bridget & I made a dozen cloth napkins for her Thanksgiving table.
Madison Regatta weekend sure put us in the mood to celebrate the birthday of America!
Best weaving class I’ve ever taken! OK, the first… but it was terrific!
We’re meeting at the Fairfield Inn again on Thursday, November 11th, 2-4pm. BYO stitching project and join us!
Perhaps you have pieces of vintage handwork tucked away that could come to life with some TLC?
Although it’s definitely disappointing not to be with any of the grandchildren this Thanksgiving, I decided to share a little pre-holiday fun with them in a Zoom crafting session. Southern Living magazine had a great suggestion!
Last fall I found several old grain sacks at Madison, Indiana’s River West Antique Mall. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular that day – “just browsing, thanks.” But these well worn sacks spoke to me. “We would make awesome kitchen aprons for your friends,” they whispered. It’s like they knew me…
Needlepoint thread hoarder, you say? Nope. It’s all a work in progress. Right now, I have plenty of room for the remnants/beginnings of creative projects. The problem is future storage.
I created a vintage-inspired Christmas tree that featured “my angels” — my mother and all of my grandmothers over time for whom I had photographs — and included Victorian scrap angels, and vintage glass ornaments and garland. It is lovely and a wonderful reminder of love and family during the holidays.
Every child wants Santa to know what they really want for Christmas, and they hope he’ll receive their list in time to grant their wishes. If you want those letters to Santa Claus answered, send them to Santa Claus Post Office in Santa Claus, Indiana!
