I would really like to start doing miniatures again. I have made miniature furniture from scratch. Also, lots of miniature embroidery. Miniature collector and Nutshell news were my favorite mags. Still have a few of them in my “how-to” book collection. Print mini’s web site is a great place to print miniature stuff including miniature wall paper, flooring and even furniture.
Oh, I am in heaven today. I am off of work and I am going to fix my craft room to feature all my new Martha Stewart craft items. Her things are so elegant! I love my scoreboard. It is my favorite toy in my craftroom. Making envelopes to my hearts content. I am going to figure out new sizes that aren’t printed on her instructions and post them here. I want to make square envies. I have some expensive things in my craft room but, as of now, the Martha Stewart scoreboard is my favorite even though it cost me under $11. Oh, and the new circle cutter is my 2nd favorite!
I am knitting an afghan. It’s going to be 15 squares. Each of the squares will be different but all will be 14″ square. I am on my third one. I am using size 4 knitting needles and dk weight yarn. I will pick out the design of each square as I go along. I am usually thinking about the next design while I’m working on the current one. I haven’t knitted an afghan before. All my afghans have been Tunison crochet and one was just crochet. This one seems to be taking longer.
Does anyone have an opinion on the differences between Michaels and Hobby Lobby? Hobby Lobby seems to have a lot more Home Dec stuff than crafty stuff. Just my opinion.
