Hi There!


Thought I’d share a few links for a couple quick Christmas gifts…. In case you’re in a bind.


10 minute table runner:


And a blog on how this other person does it.



Mug Rugs or Criss-Cross Coasters:


Note:  I have several of these around the house.  They absorb the sweaty drink drips and you can also use these for wine glasses.  The base of the wine glass slips into the “criss-crossed” fabric.


Oh, and of course they’re washable!



From the advice of a good quilty friend, Gilbert and I ordered (and have since received) a very light weight and not very expensive iron.  Plus, it stays “ON” CONTINUOUSLY!


It cost, approx.., $14.00 and we had it delivered to C & E Feed Store, in Calais.


It’s a Continental Electric CE23111 Steam Iron


And, once again its REALLY lightweight and it continuously stays HOT!   It doesn’t turn off by itself.




And another bit of information, in case some of you aren’t aware of this incredible place….


Gilbert and I have our parcels sent to:


C & E Feed

CALAIS,  ME  04619-1111

(207) 454-3666


I believe its $3.00 per (small) parcel and there’s no time limit on how long they’ll keep your parcel.  PLUS, they’re open Monday through Saturday!  Gilbert and I were quite impressed with their service and will definitely be using their services in the future!




Of course, I have to share a video with you.  How to make a “Half Square Triangle” the easy way…




Have any of you discovered “Pinterest” yet?


Here’s my Pinterest Boards:


It’s free. You need an invitation. You create your own bulletin boards and name them whatever YOU want and then, you add pictures from other Pinterest people or from around the net.  I’ve learned a lot of neat tricks and tips for around the house, and have drooled over other peoples’ “pins”.  Give it a look-see.  If you want an invitation, give me a holler.  I’d be glad to give you one!  *grin*




And last, but not least…. Just to show you that I enjoy other crafts, here’s the cutest looking scarf.  This person’s tutorial makes it look SOOOO easy to knit this scarf.  Gonna try and make it, one of these days!
