Miniature Knitting

I can't even begin to wrap my head around this!

From the needles of Althea Crome (actually polished surgical steel wire) she knits minuscule pieces usually at one twelfth the scale of normal knits.

THE SNOWFLAKE by Kimara Wise

You flit, you fly, your float around,

Before you settle on the ground.

Unique you are from all the rest,

You take your place on nature's breast.


Although you disappear from sight,

One of millions in the night.

It makes me happy just to know,

You still are you among the snow.


Our Snowflake Coloring Page is based on our Snowflake Applique Block.

February Applique Blocks

Ah, Valentine's Day. A day when we give sweets to all the sweeties in our lives. So, seems only fitting that our February Applique Blocks are a collection of sweet confections. We have a yummy cupcake, piled high with icing, and even a cherry on top. Then, a delicious ice cream cone just waiting to be enjoyed. Our Februarys are still cold, so what better way to warm you up than sharing a mug full of hot cocoa with sprinkles on top? Finally, a two layered cake with icing oozing out from between the layers and dripping down the sides.

We have already shared the cupcake, ice cream cone and cup of hot chocolate. Next week I will share the cake applique and complete this group. Also, watch for coloring pages for each of these. We hope you enjoy our delicious February Applique Blocks.

Sew Simple Fleece Mittens

Here is a perfect project for a snow day. It is a simple sewing project that your kids can help make. In our Winter Wonderland unit we included basic directions for making super simple fleece mittens. It has always been my intent to do a more in depth tutorial. Today I finally (it's only been 8 years or so) have a chance to share this project.

My kids have grown quite a bit since we did the Winter Wonderland unit. My over flowing basket of mittens, sadly looks like doll clothes next to my kids these days. All those lovingly knit mittens just don't fit any more and at this time of year you can never have too many mittens. I needed to make a basket full of mittens fast. Sure I have some mittens on my knitting needles, but knitting takes more time than sewing. By making these super easy fleece mittens I was able to fill the basket up quickly. After the first pair, which I had to fiddle with a bit, I was able to turn out a pair of mittens in about 15-20. So in one afternoon...Read more
