learn something new :: crochet

quilt by Sandra Juto :: image via the red thread

Today I was able to tick something off my "learn something new" check list.
My mother in law taught me how to crochet!
I am a long way off this beautiful quilt, but I always feel it is good to have something to aspire to!

Sometimes I feel likeThrowing my hands up in the airI know I can count on you
Sometimes I feel like sayingLord I just don't careBut you've got the love I needTo see me through

Sometimes it seems thatThe going is just too roughAnd things go wrongNo matter what I do
Now and then I feelThat life is just too muchBut you've got the loveI need to see me through

create . . . . tutorials

If you do nothing else this week you simply must pop by and meet the cheese thief!
This lady is a demon with paper and shows us how to craft and create beautiful things from paper.
These fandabby envelopes look perfect for all our hand made Valentine cards and I am going to try my hand at this super cute bookmark this afternoon.

Thank you The Cheese Thief for sharing your paper wisdom!
