Thank you for all of your kind comments over the past couple of days. It was fun to write a post for Stash Manicure and Madame Samm. A couple of questions came up that I would like to answer. The first is the dimensions of the scripture scarf I shared with you. It measures 6"x72". I like my scarves long. The scripture fabric comes on a panel and you cut it out between the lines provided. I let that be my guide for the width of the scarf. Then I started cutting pieces of fabric in different sizes (such as 6x6 and 6x10). I wanted to use up scraps and have a patchwork look. When the front was done I cut a solid piece of fabric 6"x72" for the back. Right sides together, I stitched down both long sides using a 1/4" seam. I then turned it right side out, pressed it, pressed the fabric under on each end, and stitched them shut. It's as simple as that!
The second question is how to copy the button onto your blog. That IS NOT a silly question! It's how all of us have learned to blog, by asking questions. Here's how to copy the button:
1. Go to the "Sewing Christmas" button on the sidebar. Right click on the code below the picture, and copy the code.
2. Scroll up to the top of the page and click on "Design".
3. Decide what column you want the button to be in and click on "Add a Gadget" at the top of that column.
5. Paste the code in the large "content" box and click "save".
6. The button will now appear at the top of the column you chose. Point and drag it to the spot where you want it and click on "save".
It should be on your blog now. If you have any questions, leave me a comment or send me an email.
Today you will find me over at Stash Manicure where I am the guest blogger. I would like to thank Madame Samm for this fun opportunity! Stop on over and take a look then come back here and read on...
I am on a mission this year to sew for Christmas each month so that I'm not making myself crazy in the weeks before Christmas. Would you like to join me? Here's the plan:
1. Grab the cute button "Sewing Christmas" from my sidebar and add it to your blog. 2. Stop in here the third Monday of each month where I will be featuring a gift you can make. 3. Share your own project that day through the link provided. It does not have to be a sewn item, it can be any great gift idea you may have. 4. Rejoice with me in December 2011 over all the gifts we have created and the fun we will be having with all of our free time!
So many ideas and so little time to do everything that we want to do. We give our love to others through the gifts of our hands and hope they find as much joy in receiving as the joy we experience in the making. Each project satisfies the craving to create, but not for long, as we move on to the next idea already forming in our minds. I'm so glad that God gave me something to do with my hands and I'm ready to see what creations await you and I in the new year. Blessings!
Christmas preparations are winding down at my house. I've baked Cranberry Almond Bread and made one delivery already.
Shann over at Daisy's Are My Favorite Flower shared the recipe for this Vanilla Snack Mix which I believe may be our new family favorite. I also made toffee bark but alas, not one single cookie yet. Hope your day is filled with sweet treats!
Every time I watch this I feel like a child again, laying on the floor in my living room, manually turning the knob to the channel, all excited because this show was on, the one you waited for all year long!
