Inspiration of the Moment -

‘To stimulate creativity, one must develop the childlike inclination for play and the childlike desire for recognition.’

Kitty hat!

Since Junior is always pretending to be a kitty, he got a simple kitty hat for his birthday.

It wasn't too hard - two measurements, 1 rectangle of fleece, two seams, and a bit of trim to make it fancy.

After she saw it, Snurf wanted one, too. It took me a whole 15 minutes to put another one together, and it was that long only because I had to change my bobbin thread!

Now there's two kitties in my house!

Little jeans bag

I made this a few months ago, but I'm posting it by request. When I make my next one, I'm going to cut the bottom of the bag to follow the contours of the pocket instead of squaring them off like this one. The handle is the inside seam of the jeans.

Penguin hitchhiker

Here's today's project - a penguin rubber stamp and logbook - for tomorrow's letterboxing outing. The penguin was inspired by a school assignment. A co-worker brought his son's plush penguin to work for us to take on vacations all over the country. I took pictures of that plush all over Germany and thought it was so much fun. This little guy will be traveling from letterbox to letterbox, hopefully checking in with us from time to time.
