First, let me apologize for not getting the tutorial up for the maxi skirt and scarf.  My serger has the serger flu and is being taken care of by a DR.  She should be well and ready to burn the midnight oil  tomorrow (Sat) afternoon.
So, I should be able to post the tutorial on Sunday.  Thanks for being patient!!  You are going to love this skirt!!

Working with knits!

Today we were on "Fresh Living" with Debbie and Casey from Channel 2.  We were showing how to make a knit scarf and a maxi skirt.  Hop over here to see our segment!  I am not quite finished with the tutorial for the maxi skirt so I will post tomorrow.  My serger is ill and she needs a little TLC.  I will hopefully get her taken care of and post the tutorial tomorrow.  Thanks Channel 2 for having us!!

Armchair Caddy Tutorial

My good friend Roxie just celebrated her birthday and I decided to make her gift, (yea, I know I am shocked too!!)  Especially since my procrastination issues always seem to kick in when ever I try and do something like this, but since I had to be off my foot for a few days ( I broke my toe) I thought I could do it.    Well, she loves to stitch and my friend Helen from Hugs and Kisses has this adorable tutorial for an armchair caddy  Helen's directions are awesome and so easy to follow.  I didn't take any pictures of the process but Helen's blog shows great photos.  Here is the one I made!  I hope Roxie loves it!!  Thanks Helen for letting me share!!
