A Happy Camper
Everyone has their own way of preparing for winter. For my husband, a simple task like fabricating a new chimney for the cabin makes him a 'happy camper'. As long as the wood stove can be cranked up to full heat and the cabin cozy, I'm happy too, especially if I have a fun needlework project nearby.
With the arrival of autumn, hand-crafts and projects become more important, as gardening and summer chores wane. My friends are pulling out their knitting, quilting, and sewing projects. It's time for me to do the same. A new idea, now and then, helps as well. Look at these beautiful 'autumn leaf' wool felted pot holders! They are simple, colorful, and easy to stitch. While you are at the Design . Sponge blog be sure to take a look at their very creative project for a patterned tea lover's cup. Cute, huh!
If you have a second, I'd enjoy reading what types of projects you have planned as the weather gets chilly. Please leave a comment so we can get the ideas flowing!
