Well, posting about my scissors was LOTS of fun! It turns out that I’m not so crazy after all. Some of you are right up there with me in my scissor collecting, but non-blogger Katherine by far blew us all away with her 13+ scissors. She even keeps a pair in her car (brilliant)! A couple of little goodies are on their way to you!
This tutorial came along at the perfect time since this is the first winter I’ve ever experienced ice-cold feet that don’t warm up under the covers. A sign of my age? Perhaps. But it turns out that my short, wide feet (called “farmer’s feet” by more than one Taiwanese shoe salesman when I was a little girl buying shoes…yes, I was scarred for a while *sniff* but I’m okay now) Um…where were we? Ah yes, my farmer’s feet need a little more warmth, especially since I’m a back sleeper (read “double-wide farmer’s feet surface area that needs warming”).
Here they are on my guest room shelf, since that’s where the pink one will stay. The fully washable outer shell means it can be guest-ready even though I’ve used it once.
Next to the foot warmers is a chenille-backed blanket that I made a couple of weeks ago. 2 yards of pre-pieced fabric that I’ve been hanging on to and 2 yards of chenille: busted. It looks just like this one but bigger, using the same directions as in my own tutorial, so I figured it didn’t deserve a post of it’s own.
And finally, a call to you Canadian bloggers and crafters. Kerry ‘s friend Tina is a quilter who just moved from Austrailia to Edmonton. As I understand it there are difficulties getting good fabric up there north of the border. If you wouldn’t mind welcoming her and be willing to break the bad news and share the good news about quilting/crafting in Canada, please visit here blog here (not a crafty blog, just a bloggy blog, but I’m sure you’re welcome). Let’s share some bloggy love!
