A few days ago as I was working in the kitchen as part of our extensive and exhausting preparations for Pesach, I looked out the window and saw this gorgeous site. Of course, I ran to grab my camera so that I could share this message with you: to appreciate the light, you must first experience darkness! And that my friends is the universal message of Passover, as well as the idea that one way to truly appreciate the holiday is to not only work like a slave in ridding ourselves physcially and spiritually of leavened products, (which represent an inflated ego) but to also work on ridding ourselves of all the things to which we are slaves!

Lola is my beautiful new Singer sewing machine I got from Santa this Christmas! I named her Lola because it's what I would've named a daughter if I had one ;) My other machine died (R.I.P.) from a fall a few months ago. She's the one on my blog banner. The machine cover I had made for it didn't fit Lola so I'm making her a new one :) I dyed a yard or so of natural canvas into a military green color that I love mixing olive green, black & a little bit of brown store bought fabric dye.
I wanted to share with you a project from one of my readers who shares with us how to make leaf skeletons. I LOVE this! I have several leafs in various forms displayed in my home and knew I needed to make some of her leaf skeletons to add to my decor. I love how a pattern of leaves can enhance the beauty in your home. So I asked Heather if she would mind sharing her project with you.

Looking for the Faux Metal Wall Art? Since this project was originally published on The Sitcom in December 2010, it has been my most popular project by far. Who knew that a bunch of toilet paper tubes and an idea would become so big? You can now find the full tutorial and FREE patterns on Suzys Artsy Craftsy Sitcom here: Faux Metal Wall Art
Sometimes we get a new product in that is so universally adored by the entire staff of Purl Soho that we know we need to make a Purl Bee project out of it. Our latest obsession is the new natural colorway of the Mary Flanagan Felted Wool called "Oatmeal". It soft and fluffy and ever so slightly heathered in gorgeous natural ecru and brown shades.
The way these pillows are constructed is both simple and suprizing. I loved stuffing them and watching them "bloom" in the last steps. They are also pretty quick to make, and kind of addictive. I want to make a set in every color!

I’ve been looking through old craft magazines and craft books lately. This is a quilled owl that I’ve made up a pattern for based on a picture in an old craft book… I’m thinking I need another mobile… You’ll need: (2) 4” strips coiled and glued to make the eyes. (Leave a little tail of paper at the end of the coil to make the “cheeks”). (1) 2” strip formed into a circle and glued to make the body. (1) 7/8” Strip to make the “forehead”. (1) 5 1/2” strip to make the hoop. (1) 4” strip tightly coiled to make the “hanger”. Assemble to resemble the picture and there you go!
My local library recently advertised a class for making paperclip chandeliers. Sadly it was for 6th graders, but it piqued my interest. I went home and Googled paperclip chandeliers (awesomeness!) and that led me to Lauren Manoogian's paperclip statement necklaces. They were sold at arty shops, and even Anthropologie had a version for $168. Yeah, you read that right.
