This pattern imitates the look of three raffia ribbons woven together. I’ve made it in several color combinations, and they all look really nice. I am particularly fond of the results when I start with 3 very dark colors and blend them with white – the more contrast between the three main colors and the […]Read More: The Weave Cane
I’ve always liked the idea of party favors, but most of the time, they don’t serve much of a purpose. They end up in a drawer somewhere or on the back of a shelf collecting dust.

The problem […]Read More: We need a T-Shirt!

Now I just need to get those two missing pictures, make magnets for them, and I’ll be completely done! You can also see them up close here. Now, I’m thinking it […]Read More: Woo hoo! Finished those magnets!
I’m finally working on a project that’s been percolating for over a year – family tree magnets. I’ve made more photo transfers this weekend than I care to count, and have tried out two different designs for the magnets. For the first set, I used all of the different patterns in my “Americana” color scheme […]Read More: My latest obsession
