You never know what you find when you are googling

I was googling the other day, ha, for a tutorial or example of the “Spicy Spiral” table runner that I want to make (Well that I am going to make by Sept 15 – private challenge with an old friend), and I came across a blog and she was showing how she made the table runner.

So being the inquisitive one that I am, I looked around her blog to see what other things she was doing and I came across some shirts that she had made with her grand-kids. These were easy, fun and did I say easy! So I went to the site with the directions and that site was full of interesting crafts. My favorite is the Watemark Tee Tutorial – I wish I was having a group of kids up here to do these shirts. They look so easy and FUN to do.

The other site I came across recently is a quilting/sewing themed site. They feature a different project every day or so, with full patterns and instructions always available. I originally ran across this site thru a link on one of the Wisconsin Shop hop stores web sites – they did a whole article about the Wisconsin Shop Hop (Hmmm, they didn’t do one on the Minnesota Shop Hop, I wonder where this site is located?).  I was looking thru their old posts and fell in love with the Jungle Path Baby Quilt – again, I wish I had someone to make this for, I LOVE it.

Third, but not least, I just saw a site that is hosting their 2nd Annual Craft Book Month – featuring expert Q&A’s among other things. It is a Blog Hop where each participant is to present to you (the visitor) their favorite craft book.  It started this week, and goes thru 9/21 with the final week you have the opportunity to share your favorite craft book project and enter for a chance to win prizes.
