Let the birthdays begin!

Posted by Nanc

Nearly half of my knit grrls celebrate their birthdays this month; four of the nine of us. Doesn’t that seem a little much? Especially when I happen to be making gifts this year and I’ve procrastinated for so long.

The first birthday on the calendar is Chris’. Wanna see what I made for her?

This isn’t new or news. Simply a re-post of an old article. This was originally posted on 3 July 2003 on our old TAGF site. Our site moved; software changed; life goes on – you get the picture. But every month in our list of hits, this one page gets hundreds (okay, maybe tens) of hits. And sadly, it’s not there anymore.

Instead of pointing and laughing at the sad, lost link, I’ll do good by it and bring it back. And yes, we’ll take care of the old link so it’s like new!

A few quilts for the road

Posted by Nanc

A big part of my Honduras trip is volunteering and charity. Not only giving my time, money and energy, but what we bring to the villagers is also an important part of our trip. We bring them items that are difficult to get in their region, like toothbrushes, non-lye soap, and tools.

Another item to bring is quilts. Although freezing temperatures isn’t a scare, comfortable bedding is hard to come by. In fact, the only comfort from a concrete floor I’ll get while sleeping is from the quilts I can bring.

So I got some material that I had on hand, hit the thrifts for blankets, and went about making a couple quilts.

Vegetarian (Felt) Peeps

Posted by Nanc

It seems that the only people I know who love Marshmallow Peeps® are those that can’t have them. My heart goes out to my vegetarian friends that are betrayed by that most evil of all compounds, gelatin.

So it’s in their honor that I make felt Peeps.

I’ll be up front and honest about this; I can’t figure out how to make the chicks, only the bunnies. deal, okay? And enjoy my efforts.

As part of my Stash Reduction and February Fleece Challenge, I’ve sewed up and sent a bundle of items for Bundles of Love.

I still have more fleece to use, but I’m that much closer. In fact, I’ve cut a lot more items out, but have wrenched my back during a marathon sewing session and am taking a break from my Singer. This may mean that my fleece deadline could be extended until… I can sit comfortably at the sewing machine.

But I’m happy with what I got done so far. There’s pics if you click ‘read more’.

Posted by Nanc

As I’ve stated, I’m working to clear my house of my fabric stash, starting with the overloads of fleece. Well, I’ve been able to make some progress by whipping up hats for Ship Support.

Take a look.

Challenge #1: Fleece

Posted by Nanc

In order to reduce my sentence (and my stash, he he) for the 2004 Stash Lock Down! I need to be on my best behavior. To encourage this, I’m planning a handful of challenges to get me motivated. The first of these is to deplete my fleece stash by leap day (Feb 29).
