• Thread Art Project Done!

    And, she’s done! I thought there was a gigantic possibility that I was going to mess it all up once I tried to color her in, but I think it went ok. So, what to do with her. I could cut her out, bind her, and hang her on the wall. Or, I could make […]

  • Craftsy on Steroids – Binge or Bust

    In the beginning of October, Craftsy ran a $10/all you can watch for the month of October promotion.  I didn’t get an email about it, and I didn’t see an ad for it, but someone posted about it in the Crafty Gemini Facebook group, and I ran, tripping to jump on that Craftsy train.  I’m thinking that […]

  • A One Hour Basket in An Evening

    My last one hour basket took oh so much time.    Two days.  But, that was due to aggravation, and ripping out more than anything else.  I’m not sure I would have made another one, but I was already signed up for the One Hour Basket Swap 2 on Instagram, and I was committed.

  • Weekend Endeavors

    Very productive weekend here at 1639! First, after months of hounding me to make a bird (can you believe it – my husband was actually nagging me to do a craft!), I finally made a bird to go in our birdcage. Whaaa? Well, back in the day, when I had first bought the house, and […]

  • Beach Blanket Hexagon

    Sunscreen, check! Bathing suit, check! Charged up camera, check! Kindle, ipad, check! 320 precut squares . . . huh?   While listening to Darren Daulton once again make an ass of himself on national television (I thought those days were so ovah, but apparently not), I cut my pack of Cut Out and Keep half […]
