I’m laundering, dusting, straightening, vacuuming, everything, the whole house today, when inspiration strikes. The majority of the knotted rag rug tutorials I’ve seen require some kind of grid to knot the scraps to.  I’ve seen the braided rag rugs that … Continue reading

Just Do It Already!

I wanted to post more on this blog…but…I look at other blogs and their pictures are so pretty and I just feel inadequate.  Enough of that already!  Who cares?  You tell your kids practice makes perfect.  So practice already!

Wasn’t that a nice trip through my brain?

I added this banner to the top of my patio door curtain. When I washed the curtain it shrank and the neighborhood kitties that were visiting my back porch were upsetting my kitties.



This is my grocery bag holder. Wasn’t it nice of Milo to pose for me? I had to hang this higher because the kitties and my four year old couldn’t leave it alone. I used this tutorial (link below) from Make It & Love It. I love her blog!


I also made a birdy apron to match.  I posted it here: https://dontworrysewhappy.wordpress.com/2014/03/30/overwhelmed-by-the-possibilities/.  I also made hanging towels, but mine is dirty and I gave the rest away, so I’m waiting on pics from those people.  Then I’ll do a post about making hanging towels.

Remember, creativity takes courage.
