The Report from The Rumpelstiltskin Challenge, Week 2

I don’t have a whole lot to show for this week’s challenge, save for some bloody pin-pricked fingertips and some good intentions.  I’m on the verge of wrapping up the Quilt Top Kits I’ve been hard at work on, but the light’s waning and the time’s run out for today.  Next week, I say, barring some unforeseen delay. You remember

Maybe what you need is to…

…glue some plates to your wall. Yes?  

Come find me at Elsie Marley

Because I can’t be bothered to do two posts in one day, (or the glue’s not yet dry for the project I intended to post here) you’ll have to follow me over to Elsie Marley. She’s kindly invited me to guest post today, while she languishes in the Hawaiian sun and misses us dearly.  You betcha.

It’s that time of year?

Last year at this time, we were all crafting for the cause of Haiti, to lend our support to the devastation there.  This year, it’s Queensland.  It looks like there are a few different ways to lend our support as crafters.  SewMamaSew just linked to this: And Monkemoomoo, an  Australian herself, alerted me (thanks!) to this Dolly Drive : I’ll

The Rumpelstiltskin Challenge
