Triangle Corner Trick I was piecing these blocks with triangle corners (like the corners in this block) yesterday and thought I would share a quick trick. Usually a pattern (including my own) will recommend drawing a pencil line from corner to corner on the wrong side, and sewing along the line. Like this one: Enlaces para liberar patrones de costura japoneses | ¿Qué hay de Orange The other day I spent some time poking around Japanese Sewing Books, the blog of Yifarn, a mom of two girls in Singapore. Like many of us, she adores Japanese sewing books for their distinctive aesthetic. Along with articles on how to use the books and a glossary of common terms, the website offers lots of links to free sewing patterns. Yup, they're all in Japanese, but it's possible that clever sewists might have enough to go on to make some of the projects. I'm definitely not one of those people, so I'm content just to admire the pictures. The projects above can be found here, here, here, and here.
The Polymer Clayspot A few years ago, a group of friends invited me to a party. They were going to spend a few hours playing with something called "Fimo" - some sort of colored clay. "You can do really neat things with it," they said. "We'll make some beads," they said. "It's completely cool,", they said. EARRING DESIGN IDEAS Earrings are fun and quick to make.

Redfly Creations: Go-Everywhere Mini Messenger Bag My kiddos and I have really enjoyed biking on the trails here in our neighborhood. Sometimes we are biking for nearly an hour. During those longer rides I like to make sure I take my keys, phone, and some change with us. Not every pair of shorts or pants can accommodate all those items, so I decided I needed to make a solution. It needed to be a little bag that wouldn't get in the way and wasn't too heavy, but could still hold more than a pocket could. I came up with the idea of a mini messenger bag.
Funky Wrench - Nuts & Bolts My friend Jane recently asked me to participate in her Desperate Housewife’s Quilt project. 50 of Jane’s blocks, 50 from guest bloggers, and all over a period of 50 weeks - holy S-balls, that’s a 100 blocks! I did not even hesitate to give her a big, fat yes. Plus it got me off my bum and working on my modified Wrench block I did last summer in the Farmer’s Wife Quilt-a-long. I’ve asked around, I’ve google’d… and I still have no clear idea what the difference is between a Churn Dash block and Wrench/Monkey Wrench block. Oh well, it’s a good excuse to give my version it’s own name, Funky Wrench.
