I’m the type of crafter who needs to see what my project will look like before I get started, so I often spend a lot of time in the planning stage mapping out what my projects will look like before I get started. But of course, that can’t always be the case. There are times…

Still Going Crazy

With all the fun, exciting things going on in my life, I’ve been quite a slacker on all of my crafting and sewing projects, including my quilts.  Fortunately, when I went home last night, I started cleaning the basement, which is where my crafting area is.  I didn’t get too much cleaning done, but it…
