A few more things...

With a bit more patience, Little Pieces will come together. As usual I will need another day to get through all the emails etc. Wow folks, what a rally!  Some take always so far: More folks than expected. Only 100 comments can be shown per page, so if there are more, scroll down and click "show more comments" to see the rest. This may be why you do not see yours. There are one or two folks here whose comment seem to go to my spam folder. If you comment and do not see it show up, email me.  I add...

Interchangeable Charming Choker

I was wanting a necklace to help me keep track of a key to a “treasure” box, made it but then I realized it might not need something to hold the key yet but I had the choker and charms to help dazzle it up. So here we are! I’m also happy because I saw a video of one of my favorite YouTube series (something scary) at the time and it mentioned in the episode “killer threads” a choker/necklace with a clover on it! I didn’t realize it until the clover charm was dangling from the choker! I’m so thri...

Building a Bigger Cloth-1

  Hello   S o here I am.  Here we are .  The thing is, this time around, I do not actually know who you are, do I?  I can guess but can only know part of the story... who are my travelling companions?  There are some old friends who I know are here, some older friends  who I know lurk in the background, some new folks who have kindly donated so I assume they are following but I think there might be quite a few  here  that will remain nameless and invisible.  I understand invisible. I am, i...

Tulips in the Garden

I planted a lot of tulips last fall. Well actually, a few in the fall and a lot in the winter. For a while I was driving around with boxes of bulbs in my car and kept meaning to plant them, just never seemed to find the time. So I guess it worked, the freezing … Continue reading Tulips in the Garden [Author: PaMdora]

4th straight day of rain Stitch Bitch alert. I'm emptying this room today. I can't stand it. All the cloth and stuff will go in the basement. Back in boxes because there are no shelves yet. Just a table. And walls. I need empty. I'm suddenly very unsettled here. The Man has headphones in, avoiding my commentary.  But he did manage a couple of raised beds, in case the deer get everything else. Inquired about some fencing, we'll see. I loved the reflection in the puddle. Took m...

Abruptly Changing Direction

I have a friend whose daughter is a nurse working on a Covid-19 unit here in Boston. There is nowhere near enough protective gear for these workers and she asked people to make scrub caps for the nurses on her unit. Now it’s personal! I cleared all the babies-in-waiting (to be finished) from my worktable, , and that is what I’ll be focusing on this week. Here I am, trying on my test model. And here is 7 more, finished today. Plus another 20 cut out. I will be interested ...

Pattern Making Basics: Sources for Artwork

Hello friends! Today is Part Two of the four part series I’m writing about making patterns for use for fabric, wallpaper, home decor, etc. Last week was the introduction with a post about tools to know in Photoshop. Today the topic is sourcing artwork for creating patterns. I’ll show you a few techniques I’ve used to create my own artwork, and some tools you can use in Photoshop to create your own. Also I’ll point you in the direction of a few places where you can purchase artwork with personal ...

Oversized Scrunchie DIY

I have to say that I was surprised by how quickly I got onto the “scrunchie train” once they were back in style. At first, I just did it when I heard they were great for keeping long hair out of your face while you sleep (which they are!), but then I started wearing them during the day too and I realized I hardly ever reach for a plain hairband these days. While there are lots of scrunchie styles to choose from (still love this DIY bow scrunchie), the oversized scrunchie is one I’ve been dying...

Change.   One of the realities that I have come to appreciate over time is more than one things at a time.  I stopped worrying about trying to control that. Probably, I don't remember when, I just let it all become ONE thing. Because it is. But then, like with most revelations, I forgot. Not on my own probably but with the help of the constant bullshit that is used to render us part of a machine. I'd rather be a flower. I just remembered. I think I am sharing, but then there is al...

Create Springtime Art with Simple Origami Tulips

We made a little ode-to-tulips art project with some super-simple paper origami tulips. With only a few folds, this is a great origami project for young kids and origami novices (like me!) Not only are they fun to make, they are such a fun display for a spring time craft! Every spring, I love seeing tulips pop up in my yard. It seems like I always forget about them – such a colorful surprise! If you can get your hands on an inexpensive pack of origami paper, it’s the best for doing paper foldin...

Weekend Reading 3.29.20

We’re having spring showers in Northern California, and it may be the last time, but I’m loving the soft rain. “Sunday morning, rain is falling… “ as the Maroon 5 song goes. This week was a lot slower than life as usual, have you adapted to it yet? As my fellow Gen X friend pointed out to me this morning by linking to this article, remember when we used to spend an entire weekend lounging on the floor of our bedroom waiting for songs to come on the radio so we could make mix tapes? Time to chann...

    I have been thinking about being prepared . How it sometimes seems like a "suddenly" last minute kind of thing to rush and change everything now, which often pushes everyone and everything else out of the way in the process. But then it can also be a constant worrying activity where you keep at it based on a long standing fear, which might wear on you and everyone else around you. Drag you down and limit the rest of your activities. Poison your days. But then in a more gentle perspective, ...
