The Jack-O-Lantern over the basement mantle is the first I made right before we left MN. So...when we get back in May, our house there will still have a touch of fall.
One thing I learned while making these 2, was to make sure the book has between 200 to 250 pages. Also (a must) have a glass filled with iced water just in case you burn yourself with the hot glue, like I did.
I created a little crafting/sewing space down in our basement...nothing fancy at all, but good enough to create.
I'm organizing this area as I go...so...I have a long ways to go!
I started sewing a jelly roll quilt top and needed to see how it was coming along (pattern wise). I didn't want to spread it out on the floor because then our kitties and dog would be all over it...not good!
So I came up with an idea (right on the spot) to hang my work in progress on the wall.
I used these damage-free hanging strips with Velcro, and
attached it to the back of clothespins, and
onto the wall.
I started out with 2 clothespins and then added a third one as I added more strips to the quilt top.
I think this will work for the meantime, but I'm thinking of maybe putting up a pretty curtain rod with cafe curtain clips instead...that's an even better idea!
I'm so glad that you came to visit!! DH and I have been married for 28 years. Hubby and I are now retired and enjoying life. We winter in Sun City, AZ, & spend summers in Golden Valley, MN. This blog will chronicle our adventures (& misadventures) as a retired couple. We have 2 spoiled and devilish KittyKats, & Jack - the most adorable perfect Chihuahua ever, & our new addition Daphne Moone - the sweetest Chi!!!!
