My To-Do List

I started this post a while back, working on the Hub's teeny-tiny laptop while Gertie was in the 'puter hospital. I didn't get far. My hands just weren't made to work with something that small.(And no, I don't use a Smart phone.)

Then the Hub wound up in the real hospital, and all thoughts of blogging went out of my head.

He's out now and doing well...and so is Gertie. So here's the post I didn't post before.

These are projects/ideas I've picked up over the last month or so with the idea of one of these days....

Scrappy roses are all over the 'net. These lovelies--and a tutorial--are from Little Birdie Secrets.

Aren't these patch pillows gorgeous? Check them out at C.R.A.F.T. here.

Another patch pillow. If, like me, you're interested in trying one, here's a tutorial on embroidery stitches from the Caron Collection.

I think I've shown these lovely covered books before from Drab to Fab, but I'm wanting to do a few for my sis who's redoing her master bedroom so this is to remind me where to find the directions.

For a whimsical take on all the recent book page crafts, check out these clothes pins by One Cheap B*tch.

Cool scrapbook paper pumpkins from make mine lime.

I'm always looking for ways to organize my sewing space. Love this Sewing Caddy from How Joyful.

Here's another tute for covered books from Murphy's Law, Only Worse.

Scrappy roses extraordinaire in this Recycled Roses Pillow from Alisa Burke.

How about this machine applique from Made at Greenlodge? Tute here.

Another machine applique from Jane of All Crafts.

Gotta love these covered buttons made from embroidery scraps. For the above button, Julie used a scrap of a vintage embroidered handkerchief. Find details at The Adventures of Blue Girl.

Aren't these maple-leaf roses wonderful? The blog Lobzik is written in Russian, but the pictures are self-explanatory. Find the tute here. (That link should take you to the Google translated page.) Take a tour around her site; there are some lovely items there, such as this

Isn't it fabulous? Check out more pics here.

How about this button sewn on with bullion rose buds? Is that cool or what? There's no tute, though she does give tips. If you know how to do the bullion stitch, easy peasy. If not, you can find directions here. The pic above comes from this site.

That's all for now. Take care, y'all
