It's been an absolutely hectic week, full of happy things, sad things, busy things, and deadlines not met. Unfortunately there wasn't time to knit a single stitch, plant a single flower, or spend even a moment crafting.
But I did manage to wander around the Internet craft world a little bit. Here are some interesting things I found:
Tess has written a comprehensive tutorial on seam finishes for Sew, Mama, Sew’s Women’s Clothing Month. Whether you’re new to sewing or a veteran, you’re likely to learn something new. I gained a new respect for my 25-year-old sewing machine and no longer feel that my life is incomplete without a serger.
Canadian Living, one of the major women's magazines here, has an easy-to-sew cat tunnel on its website. With three cats who are currently imprisoned inside for a variety of reasons (not least of which is coyotes), I'm going to make one of these.
Margerie commented once on finding a good, long-lasting way to mark garden rows. Family Fun magazine's site has instructions for painted garden stones.
Two projects from Craft Stylish are going on my to-make-sometime list: little embroidered pincushions made from pop bottle caps and felt scraps and an incredibly easy note card (because goodness knows I need more note cards).
