New use for scrap clay

pdcrm01-flickrThat’s one snazzy-looking feather, dontcha think? Introducing the newest Polka Dot Creations tutorial: Scrap Feather Cane by the very talented Robin Milne.

I can’t think of a better way to use up those cane ends we all have than to make this brand new, striking cane. (Seriously, I can’t. I usually just give my scraps to Son #2, who runs them through the pasta machine repeatedly until they’re solid colors).

This tutorial is free for the taking here. And don’t forget, when you make your first feather, be sure to post a picture of it on our new flickr group!

Today was the first day since school let out that the boys and I were all home together alone, just the three of us. I spent some time prepping orders for shipment in the morning, and then we all shared a nice lunch around the table, followed by a trip to Toys R Us. The boys had gotten gift cards for Christmas and we spent them today on water fun!

Tomorrow it’s the park, followed by the library, and then, if it’s warm enough, I’ll fill up the big ol’ plastic pool we got and spend the afternoon soaking my toes while the boys play. Something tells me I’m not going to get a whole lot done this summer…

This summer, my goal is to strike a balance between keeping Polka Dot Creations afloat, indulging my muse, and making happy memories with the little ones while they’re still little. Oh, and I should probably also wash a dish or two in there

  1. That IS one super snazzy feather! So pretty!

  2. Hi polkadot! I just read your blog about the new book “bend the rules sewing”. Oh my gosh! It looks so good! I’ve been getting into little sewing projects lately & I may just have to get that book! The other sewing one you mentioned sounds good too! I may just have to make myself a little date with Barnes & Noble…
