I’m a book-reading, craft-making newlywed living outside Chicago. I love my husband, cooking dinner and especially eating desserts! We love to ride bikes all over town and read books at coffee shops. I also enjoy shopping at JoAnns, drinking wine on the patio and playing with my bunny rabbit Penelope.
Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog. Please leave a comment- they really make my day! :)
Many American families like to watch football on Thanksgiving, but not mine. Instead of indulging in some television, we CRAFT! My mom broke out her crafting supplies, I brought things over and my future sister-in-law, B, packed some in her suitcase. I should have taken a picture of the Thanksgiving-dinner-table-turned-craft-table because we made quite a crafting mess!
Here's our creations:
My felt flower and sweater pin.
B's bluebird ornament
Mom's felt bird ornament
B and my mom are really into embroidering, so they showed me how to do a blanket stitch. Here's a YouTube video demonstrating this easy and versatile stitch.
