Booties do not take very long. I can make a pair in two days. It's two day because of all the other stuff I HAVE to do.

Today I was working on ideas for my Recycled Denim Swap. I'd love for some of you to join in and make something for your swap partner out of a pair of old blue jeans. There are lots of recycled blue jean ideas on Pinterest.

Hopefully, no one steals a pair of their husbands to do this swap, but if you do, we won't tell anyone. LOL!

Hahahaha . . . he gives them up willingly. I patch the knees till the poor legs just can't take it any more. Then if I don't turn them into cut offs for him, I get them to play with.

LOL! I know what you mean, Jean. Many of Ed's jeans are not worth making anthing out of when he gets done with them. Lots of different stains of paint, oil, or whatever.

Stains of paint, oil, whatever?! What a great canvas for patches! I'd love to work with that. Lowell does not wear jeans. I find jeans in the trash, in the street or handing on the wall where we have a free market place. I've recently found a really nice pair of small-size black jeans.

Yes, some of the paint spattered ones would make great patches,but the oil remains oily sometimes and would be messy.

Put some glue and glitter over the oil spots or glue some other fabric (maybe embroidered with a small design) over the oil spots.

Krista -- I no longer have the pattern or I would send it to you. But many moons ago, I made a giant Hamburger and donated it to a children's library. It was awesome and so well received by the kids. It consisted of Big floor pillows and pads that when stacked together formed a great big hamburger. The kids used all the pieces at library story time. It also came with a "bag of fries" that were a big hit for soft sword fighting. Wish I still had the pattern but maybe it's out there somewhere on the net. It really was wonderful.

I have been on line most of the morning looking for a needle point to make and give for a Wedding, I am going to nephew and his will be wife in 2022 I had no luck so then I decided that I would try my hand at cross stitch but would look for one that has the picture on the canvas, only ones I found have sayings on them and since I would be new at this I thought it would be easer to make one with out the words. Well NO luck.

If anyone knows a web site I could try, I would be very happy.

Krista -- not much luck searching for "Giant Hamburger Pillow". However when I tried "Cheeseburger Floor Pillow Pattern" I was jazzed when I came across this crochet pattern.
https://www.etsy.com/listing/186093862/crocheted-cheeseburger-ottoman-pattern
I think there is also a floor cushion version but didn't have time to search more right now.

That is an amazing pattern. It would take a large amount of yarn. I would see this as a real challenge.

Jean, that is awesome! My kids would definitely get a kick out of that, but to be honest I wouldnít be able to get that done before Christmas lol! I need something a bit smaller. I am going to hang onto the pattern though!

Sheila, I hope you can find one that will work perfect for you.

I am about done with the crochet wall hanging. Just a few more finishing touches and we shall see how it looks! I really hope my brother likes it.

Jean & Krista -That burger is amazing!!!! I bet you'd have a hard time hiding it from the kids though LOL!!!! Here's my idea - A while ago I found these little wooden chests at Hobby Lobby in the unfinished wood section. I painted one pink with white trim for my niece and one red with white trim for my nephew. Then I painted "Paige's treasure chest" and "Jesse's treasure chest" on them. I can't remember what I put in them for Christmas - probably some chapstick and candy. They loved them! My niece cried when the hinge broke on hers and her dad had to fix it for her. My nephew told me he still has his (he just turned 20!).

I've been so busy outside I haven't been crafting in a while. Here's an apron I made for a swap in June:


I made some fabric baskets for my nephew's birthday but I must not have the pictures uploaded on the computer yet since I can't find them.

Oppressive heat and smoke are keeping me inside 24/7. So I decided to finally fire up the Stitching Cosmos class I purchased a while back. Working on lesson 2 (of 10) today. And already I have learned so much. Here's a wonderful tip for y'all that was worth the price of the class all by itself. . . Make a Stitch Book. What, pray tell is a Stitch Book, you ask?. Well, you know all the fancy stitches on your sewing machine . . . most of which you probably have never used. Well prepare a stack of solid fabric each with 2 layers of stabilizer. Then sew a line of each stitch, label with fabric marking pen, put into clear sleeves and store in a binder. Just having actually sewn each one and being able to look through them, I bet you find yourself using them more. I know I sure did. Is it a lot of work? Yes! Is it worth it? Absolutely!
Farmgirl hugs,
jean

I am real sorry yíall are having the oppressive heat and hope it cools down soon for you.
It it nice to see what everyone is working on to stay out of the heat but stay busy.
I am working on my August Round ATC. I found it to be a bit of a challenge but I figured everything out, and I think it looks pretty good. I hope Rebecca likes it!
Well, back to work to finish it up.

Big Hugs,
Debbie

Jean -- I did that when I first got my Bernina and almost immediately found a practical use for it. There is a window by my head in our trailer that lets the sun shine directly on my face so I pinned it there to act as a blackout curtain. Works great.
Debbie --Love your round card but you may have to add more chairs.....

Heather - Adorable apron. Debbie - I love the round ATC. Very different. Theresa - I hear you. I never learned to crochet. The version I made was from fabric and was a pile of quilted pads and pillows. It was a lot of work too but just an awesome result. Wish I still had that pattern. I especially liked the onion slice. It was a big round piece of white on white fabric with decorative stitching and a wide satin outline all done in purple concentric circles -- too cute.
