Dye eggs with old silk ties!
Wrap raw egg in a piece of silk tie and secure with a twist-tie or rubberband
Wrap another piece of scrap fabric around that.
Add 1/4 cup vinegar to your water pan and hard boil your egg as usual
I boil for about 15 minutes
Let your egg cool before unwrapping

I've been cheating on my sewing machine.
with the Kindle Fire.
This is the little book I carved out to keep it safe.
You can click here for instructions
I was going to cover the inside with some scrappy paper
but it just seemed to look fine as is.
anyone on the fence about an E-Reader?
this is probably the single most worthwhile piece of electronics
I have ever used.

I bumped into my friend Mira from Our Daily Minutiau
the other day and she had on a great re-fashioned sweater .
She gave me a few tips and inspired me to fix this cashmere
sweater I have been holding onto. Thanks Mira for taking the
scarey out of this for me :)
Yup! it was that simple. I laid out my best fitting sweater
trace, cut, sew!
Its that time of year agian.
I get brave enough to re-do/learn/get-frustrated
with the design part of blogging. NOT my specialty.
I decided to search for some freebies. ShabbyBlogs
is where I landed. They have some wonderful graphics
and thier directions were fairly easy to follow. They also
recommended Fotoflexer where you can do all sorts of great
things with your photos! I may have to do some experimenting.

This is the fabric I found for the swap
Lorelei at Midnight Maker is hosting 2 I-Spy-Swaps
( they are both now full) I thought I missed out
on yet another one, BUT I submited my name anyway
and I made it in as an alternate.
Here is a flickr group of all the fabrics in the Swap.
Below are a few of my favorites
