In case anybody cares enough (and even if not): Sorry, for being so "absent" lately. But, I just didn't have any finished projects to share (I have at least 5 unfinished ones, though...) or any other news.
I have been a bit of a scatter brain lately when it comes to crafting. But kind of in a good way. I have found so many new tutorials online over the past week and had a few ideas of my own (Believe me, that doesn't happen very often) that I just jumped into each one of them, but stopped in the middle to start with the next. I have every intention to finish each and every one of those things, but it will be a few more days.
There is one, however, which I finished last night!
Happy Together for quilted rag letters. And having two toddlers I thought this is one of the best ideas ever. And believe me, it is! Since I have had a set done for the girls they have not stopped playing with it. They mostly just arrange, re-arrange, dump and put the letters back into the bag. But, they have also already learned to associate "Y" with Yanic, "M" with Mama, "P" with Papa (that's what they call their Dad), "A" with Anika and "K" with Kordula. This is really a great educational toy. AND: it doesn't require any batteries.
If you want to make a set too, go on over to Happy Together for the tutorial or if you don't have the time or patience, I made a couple of extra sets. You can get them at my shop here and here. I think these would make great Back-to-school or Christmas gifts (hey, X-mas is only 5 months away...;-)).
