DIY Ironing Board Covers

Two Ironing Board Covers Spring is here as is spring cleaning.  The ironing board cover I have is large, wide and long.   Between crafting, sewing and good old fashioned laundry it is in use every day.  Although it’s fairly new, the surface had gotten very dirty from applying iron on interfacing.   Being an odd size it is impossible to find a pretty cover in town, and I could not finish ironing and hanging of…

Crocheted Wool Basket that Stands

Crochet a Wool Basket I have seen several pictures of wool baskets, they are gorgeous but I chose not to make one because I don’t like them floppy.  I had bought a really nice cloth laundry bin that matched all my little bins and was the right blue and had laundry embroidered on the front.  I loved it.  Unfortunately it was way too soft sided to be useful.  It simply would not stand up, I eventually…

Romantic Valentine’s Banner Bling Hop

Valentine’s Decorating When he’s home hubs and I are just the two of us most of the time.  I think were complacent but Valentine’s isn’t  a big thing for us.  I get flowers, he gets some chocolates a couple of extra deserts and we share a bottle of wine.  Although its super toned down around here I still decided to make this little Valentines heart wreath. a   That said I love looking at all…

Crochet Buttoned Cowl

Winter Cowl Scarf Like most people I am in the middle of the post Christmas decluttering season.   I found a garbage bag of wool I haven’t put to use yet.  I cannot believe I have that much unused wool, shame on me.  The farmer’s almanac predicts an exceptionally long cold winter in Edmonton,  so I decided to make a extra large warm cowl. I would much rather have my little ones model my crafts, but…
