A 1967 Tatted Edge- Bookmark

I spent some time trying to finish up some projects in my workbasket, and one of them was this tatted edge from the February 1967 issue. I do know how to tat, both needle and shuttle, but I admit I am not well practiced and I…

That’s Right Folks! It’s a Jello Mold!

I promised in February that the Ripe Olive Empress Salad, Jello Mold,  would be made! There was a delay, but it was made as promised. Usually I buy my gelatin in bulk but when I went to a new bulk food store they didn’t sell it…

The Palm Loom – Prize-Winning Rugs

February Issue Voting! 

This month I’m trying something new, and getting the following months issue picked out early (in hopes of being able to be more prepared and share more fun stuff with you!) but before I start that I want to try something else new. You’re going to…
