Now, when scrubbing…

    Little Lavender Sachet

    A lavender sachet doesn’t have to be a specific size or shape.  These little sachets are a triangle.  They even have a little ribbon loop so you can hook it onto something or grab it easy.

    Days for Girls

This is what happened recently with the Days for Girls organization. Recently I was lucky enough to participate in a very large sewing day.  It wasn’t for ourselves…

If you are new to crochet, this is…

    Mini Quilt Patterns

    I love mini quilts. They are perfect if you are looking for a little bit more challenge or for just exploring in techniques in a different size. Some of the mini quilt tutorials aren’t even tiny piecing, but just a smaller version of the larger one. These are great for trying out a new technique or two without a big…
