A Little Update on Kim & Kris…and The DIY Dish!

March 27th, 2012

Hi everyone! Wow, the time has just flown since the end of our last season! We really appreciate all of the kind emails people have sent us, asking about the show. We have missed you!

As you may have seen our announcement on Facebook, we are taking a small break from filming new episodes. We’ve had to make room for some exciting projects…and a little bit of life-balance as well. Although you have not seen new episodes of The DIY Dish, there are a few other places you may have seen our projects and what we have been up to!

For example, Kris recently shared a fantastic project on Studio 5! You are going to LOVE the look of chenille blankets with this easy technique she shares! Not into blankets? How about some gorgeous throw pillows using the same technique! Take a look…

We also had a column in the Spring 2012 issue of Where Women Cook Magazine! It is on newstands now.

In the magazine, we share a few things: a delicious quiche made by our friend, Cindy, a small (but darling!) spring project, and….oh…ya…Kris had a FLOOD in her quilt shop this past January! Yes, we share the story behind that, too. Let’s just say that over 3,000 gallons of water in a quilt shop isn’t something to jump for joy about. 😉 You can pick up your copy of this gorgeous magazine today! Here’s a sneak peek:Our days have been filled with cleaning, writing patterns, running a quilt shop, grocery shopping,writing a new book that will be in stores, taking kids from here to there and everywhere.  (You get the picture, right?) :) We’ve also been speaking at a few different women conferences about such things as creativity, balance (still working on that!), bringing beauty into your life and home, etc. We love meeting new friends, learning from them, and of course,  sharing our love for all things DIY.

So when will we be back with new episodes? We don’t have the perfect answer for that, but we hope it will be soon. We can’t wait to share what else we’ve been up to and hope that you will stay around in the meantime.

Our very best wishes,
Kim & Kris

    Missed you and all your creative ideas! I am working on 2 quilts, I have made several coffee filter wreaths to give as gifts, painted a vintage window and added some vintage hangers and hung it on the wall. It turned out great! This week I made some burlap bunnies. I love to craft!

    I’ve been sewing for our coming baby. I’ve nearly finished the ‘row as you go’ quilt that I learned from your show and I’ve made a number of little blankets for our baby and a few more we know are on the way for friends. After a ten year gap since our third child, these next few months will probably be a bit too full for much sewing, but I’ll keep looking out for new episodes and learning new things!

    Great to have you back Cathie. You always have wonderful ideas. I’ painting on patio pavers right now.

  • March 27, 2012 at 9:27 am

    just love it

  • March 27, 2012 at 9:37 am

    It is so great to hear from you again – I do understand how life gets in the way of doing somethings. I have had some health issues that doesn’t allow me to get around as I once did, but I am still sharing all the info that I get from you with friends around the world – matter of fact for my birthday last month – I receive a couple table toppers from some friends – the 10 minute table toppers – that Kris shared with us – what a joy to not only see that they enjoyed the information, but that they made me a gift and sent it to me to cheer me up. I can’t wait to see what is new – congratulations on the “Where Women Cook” article. Keep on stitching!

  • March 27, 2012 at 9:43 am

    I have been making fabric pinwheels and pinwheel magnets like crazy over here! It’s been fun coming up with different combinations of fabric to make very cute pinwheels. My mantel and shelves are filled with them and it’s looks very springlike in my home.

    Love the DIY dish and all the creative ideas! Your site is very inspiring to me as I have begun (Oct. 2011) teaching sewing and craft classes for children (starting age 7) and adults. I love it! Some projects I have been working on lately would be samples of things that my students can make, t-shirt and clothing re-styles, little boy’s ties, shorts and superhero capes, (I have a 4 year old grandson) and baby tutu’s, headbands, onsies with skirts, and baby shoes (for my 8 mo old granddaughter)! Also, I love to make purses and am hoping to make myself a new one for spring/summer! Now, if there was just more time in a day!!!

  • March 27, 2012 at 10:15 am

    Oh…I’ve misses you girls!
    I’m working on trying to hand quilt a large quilt. I made some cute coasters with burlap coffee bean bag. Looks so cute with the lettering showing. I’ve made baby bibs, tote bags, and I make greeting cards with rubber stamps. Plus I spend time with my granddaughter. She and I have started some plants (one is lavender) for future sachets, herbs and tomatoes.
    Next I plan on painting my old milk can and my mailbox.
    Please hurry and come back. So sorry to hear about the quilt shop. Wish I could help.

    Take care and have fun.

  • March 27, 2012 at 10:28 am

    I have been very busy with many things. I have been makeing mostly seasonal decor type things the past few months. Febuary was Valentines month. I made a bunch of little miniture quilted & stuffed heart pillows that contained machine embroidery to display in a gorgeous old antinque cranberry glass dish of my Grandmothers. I also made a matching pennant banner and a large wall quilted hanging. And a valentines wreath for my door. For March I made a St. Patricks door wreath and machine embroidered shamrock coasters. But I also made a small quilted wall hanging with shamrocks as well. And now that Easter is coming I have once again been hard at work. I have created a easter egg topiary tree out of a styrofoam ball and covered it in easter eggs . I am very proud of it it turned out very well. I also created a huge gorgeous Easter door wreath. and to my delight I found a pattern on pinterest to make stuffed easter peeps. I have made 6 stuffed bunny peeps to go in easter baskets. I now have begun a small quilted easter project which I seem to be stuch on. I have also cut out a pink chenile easter bunny pillow whcih I need to get sewn together.. So My good ness I have been very busy creating not to mention cleaning yards and getting the vegetable garden planted.

    Hellllloooo! I was excited to have an update from my Diy Girls.
    I haven’t gotten much done lately in the way of sewing because I fractured my shoulder. I did get to help my sister made a Mondo Bag. If you don’t know what it is Google it. What a fun great bag to make.
    Can’t wait for more shows.

  • March 27, 2012 at 10:53 am

    Hi and welcome back! I love watching your videos! Recently laid off I have lots of time creating. I have been making mini albums and trying to sell on my etsy shop. Also I have sewn a few ipad sleeves and made many name pillows for gifts. I have 4 grandchildren and the first 3 were boys and we just had a girl so I look forward to making as many things for her as possible. Thanks for the inspiration! 😀

  • Jill Harris
    March 27, 2012 at 10:54 am

    After watching the video clip I want to add that I found this idea on the Internet close to a year ago and made a smaller version of it as baby washcloths. I used a chenille cutter similar to the tool you showed in the video, however it comes with different sizes to accommodate different channel widths. Thanks for sharing this idea…I had forgotten about it. Love the pillow idea =)

    Wow Ladies!
    It has been one year ago today since I posted.

    I have two charity pograms I am currently involved with, another waiting in the wings. Can’t oveload my system! LOL

    I am involved in “Pillowcase dress project” and “dress a girl” American girl doll to be sent with dresses through Angels of Mercy here in Rochester NY.

    My second passion is making stuffed animals for our local police department “Toys for Cars” Sometimes when Officers get called to a residence they try to take children outside to take them away from the scene. If they have a toy to distract, or a cuddly to hug while waiting might comfort them.

    Both very worth while projects.

    Last summer I sent about 35-40 embroidered tee shirts amongist other things with our pastor for an African orphanage.
    So trying to stay out of trouble.
    Glad to gave you back!

    I miss you guys! I just finished insulated roman shade window treatments for my newly renovated master bedroom/bath combo. I’m so happy with them! This was my first foray into home dec sewing, so I was a little intimidated, but they turned out beautifully. I’m now working on moving my sewing room from a spare bedroom to my enclosed porch. Hopefully DH will put heat in before next winter. Hope you are both well!

    March 27, 2012 at 11:33 am

    I have missed you two creative geniuses so much! You inspire me! When I read what all you have accomplished while ” gone” , I felt a wee bit guilty because of course! You need to take time for yourselves, your family and in the long run all of us as I am sure you have thought up and created many new fun, quick and doable projects. Selfishly there was only one thing I didn’t like about your letter..and I do say selfishly!…there is no absolute date when you will return to us , but I will wait patiently.
    The prize articles are wonderful . Someone (can’t help but hope it’s me ) is going to be mighty lucky to receive all those great items.

    Thanks for the update and congrats on all of the amazing things you two have been doing! I love the gift package and would love to do some of these projects for my two lil ones before the arrival of our twins in early June. I think my sewing/crafting will be taking a solid break for a while with 4 kids under 3. Continue to keep us posted on how things are going!

    Whoops, forgot to tell you my project. I am doing a combination project: cleaning and making my sewing/ craft room leaner and ” meaner” ( as in more inviting- new curtains- and inspiring- neat, organized, important items visibly handy) AND the other part is reving up and polishing my sewing skills in order to make clothes and doll clothes for my two little granddaughters, ages: almost 3 and 6 months.

    My 9 yr old was asking me just a few days ago to see more of your videos. She (and my other girls and I) are so happy to see you again!
    The 9 yr old, Julia, sewed a quilt top, and was soooooo excited to find “Fancy Nancy” fabric at Joann’s for her quilt back. She was jumping up and down from the time she spotted it, ’til we got out to the car. She helped me tie the quilt last night, and I will be binding it today. The whole thing is flannel, and she can’t wait to snuggle up in it on the couch.
    My 7 year old is also working on a quilt. She has 2 of the 11 rows of squares sewn together.
    Other than that, I am working on cloth baby wipes with my serger. Also, leggings for my 4 youngest daughters, but my 2 year old son pulled a spring out of my sewing machine, and now the zig-zag doesn’t work! Will have to get that fixed soon, so I can sew the waistbands on the leggings.

    Hey Kim and Kris it’s always great to see you guys back, just one question your baby blanket should kneel project the three layers of fabric on the back is that just plain cotton or does it is there particular type of fabric called should deal would love to do that just wanted to know that question thanks

Just yesterday, the postman delivered my fabric and I’m making a diaper bag for a friend. Can’t wait to dig in! AFTER I clear my cutting table of the load of “stuff” that found residency there! It’s always something…..!

    Awesome to hear from you guys! My house has been crazy too! I went back to school and got my real estate license then realized I hated that and I was already exactly where I was supposed to be so now I’m back teaching preschoolers and loving it! We picked fresh strawberries and made some jam and fruit leather and the kids really enjoyed that. We also lost my husbands father so we have been coping with the loss of a parent (a first for us). Of course the never ending task of balancing everything so no balls get dropped, most days we are successful but we have our moments!

    I have missed crafting and you guys. Your episodes never fail to spark my creativity and get me in the mood to create….something that always gets pushed aside when life gets busy, but I sure do miss it!

    Well, let’s see – I made some really cool Christmas ornaments, a couple of awesome felt Christmas trees, and most recently made a baby shower cake using cake pops, on a three tiered platform using styrofoam and dowels. I wish I could post pictures but I don’t see a way to do that here. It turned out adorably – I suggested to the mom-to-be that she save the cake base, and attach a photo of the baby each month to it, moving up the tiers all around, and then a picture of her baby girl on her first birthday at the top of the cake, and make cake pops to put all around again for her first birthday party!!! She plans to do that, which will be very cute indeed!!! Thanks for the opportunity to win the goodies! I miss Cathie and her shows, and look forward to new episodes on DIY Dish!!!! Happy Easter!

But I am ready to start learning more in the sewing dept. This is a busy time for all of us. I love the new tees that are out especially the lower round neck ones, cant stand anything around the neck. cant wait to see what Cathy has come up with.

    So glad to hear from you again, have missed the shows. The two of you always came up the greatest ideas! sorry to hear about the quilt store, I’m sure that was devasting to say the least because we put so much of yourselves into things like starting a business.

    You certainly have been missed by everyone, myself included. Look forward to all your new ideas. I have been a whirling dirvish at the sewing machine this winter. The most important thing I’ve been working on is a charity project, making and collecting small quilts for our local NICU. ~karen

    So good to receive an email from DIY Dish. I have been wondering what happened. This past Christmas, I made 18 aprons for all the ladies who came to my cookie swap. I had so many scraps left over (used 36 yards of fabric, all colors and designs) I decided to cut all the scraps into 5″ squares. My granddaughters will be visiting this summer and I will help each of them make a quilt to take home with them. They are also looking forward to doing crafts with their Papa. Thanks for all the great tips and ideas. Miss you girls and look forward to seeing you online again. Best wishes.

    Life can get in the way of crafting, don’t I know that too. But it like riding a bicycle, once you open the cupboard and all the moths fly out the juices begin to flow. I am giving a baby shower to a dear friend and sister in the Lord. We are using the theme Lamb of God, and this Easter season I am seeing so many lambs. I took a cork framed board, painted the frame black, hot glued white and black buttons all around it. Each person coming has a slip of paper as an encouragement to put onto the board. When we are done I will cover it with plexiglass. I know the mom to be will be touched. The home made, hand made things are always the best. I would love to win the tee craft package! Blessings to all.

  • March 27, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    Love your shows and miss seeing them, thou I go back to past episodes a lot.

    I have just been making cards upon cards for OWH and still in the Paper Secrets Scrap your A…. off layout contest. There is 6 of us left and we are on week 48. Can’t believe I have almost a year of weekly layouts done. It has been a blast.

    I was wondering what happened to you! I thought perhaps my email addy went missing and I just wasn’t receiving updates anymore….
    This will be a busy year for me as I expect three new grandbabies! I already have 10 and am always on the lookout for projects to make cool stuff for them. I have one quilt nearly finished for an April baby…two more to go. I’ve been sewing up a few snap pouches for some little girls at church…will probably add lip gloss and gum to them before gifting them…I’ll let them choose which ones they want…I used a variety of fabrics. I’ve had company and will have more company next month…going to see my mom in July…haven’t seen her for two years…so busy! Hope to see you girls soon again with some great inspiring ideas!

    I have been doing alot of things working on UFO’s that I need to send pictures to Audrey, I live in Nebraska but order kits thru Audrey. I finished the 8 pillowcases that I ordered at Christmas just have to decide which Grandchild is going to get and then machine embroidery each of their names on the pillowcases. I finished napkins & a blanket on my UFO list. I just send pajama bottoms and matching shirts that was on my list and today my daughter told me Garrett had to wear his pajamas to daycare today. I am cutting out a quilt and a purse pattern I just purchased. I did 8 pairs of pajamas and name shirts. Have done some sewing on a quilt I started in the Fall I one more seam and then do borders. I miss you guys on the DIY dish so hope to see fun things in the future. I have identical twin daughters in Texas so I love keeping up with the two of you, I can see the twin thing is just how my daughters bond is with each other.

    I purchased a fabric panel with a city printed on it for kids to play with their little cars on. I was going to make a small quilt for my grandson. Before Christmas, I noticed a carpet with the same type of city on it in his room. Discouraged, I asked his mom what I should do now and she suggested making him a twin quilt for his bed. He just moved into a new room in the newly finished basement. I didn’t get very far on it to get it to him for Christmas, but have been working on it the last few weeks. It is bright and colorful. I’m machine quilting it on my Bernina and still have the last two strips to quilt. Just FYI, I’ve had a torn out kitchen due to a flooding dishwasher (before Christmas) which also flooded downstairs. My family is doing the work, but my house is a mess and it gets discouraging. But it brightens my day when I get to spend a few moments working on the quilt. Hopefully it will be completed in the next week!

    I’m so glad to see you have a video on Tee-shirts. I’ve been wanting to do this for my travel group (4 little ole ladies named Wild Widow Women). We love wearing Ts that match, but we don’t like the big all over the front of the shirt designs, which are very hard to find. This will be perfect. Can’t wait to try your techniques.

    Wow what a wonderful giveaway, I’ve been working on a baby dedication bonnet, I made a bonnet at a vintage handkerchief when my friends baby was born and now she is 3 months old and has out grown it and my friend would love another for her to wear on Easter Sunday on her dedication day. I am making this one from scratch. I started it yesterday and so far it looks pretty good. I also am working on headbands for the same baby, with crochet flowers. I am also crocheting a scarf from alpaca yarn and a friend sent me ribbon yarn(ladder yarn) which I hope to make something from. Again, thanks for this chance at the giveaway

    I tried a new recipe, Pesto Chicken. Cook chopped red bell pepper and onion (use oil or butter) in a pan for a few minutes, add chicken. When cooked, add pesto sauce, heat through, and voila, dinner is served. Great on pasta but the leftovers made a terrific wrap for lunch, too. I used already prepared pesto sauce, but would love to make my own next time.

I have been crocheting hats, flip flops, sandals, booties and all sorts of cute things and of course all the things a mother does, cleaning, cooking, shopping, taxiing.

    Thought that I had mistakenly “unsubscribed” you gals! After doing some scouting around, discovered your sabbatical! I am enjoying making the Pearl Louise quilt from Mc Calls(6412). It took months for me to get the pattern because it was always out. Picking the fabrics and trims for the little dresses is like dressing a sweet little girl every morning. Have you heard about the brand new quilt shop in Okla. that had a car come thru the front window? No one hurt, but the safety glass dust and fragments have left most of the fabric unuseable with a trip to the dumpster the only solution! Can you imagine?

  • Lynda W
    March 27, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    I am working on many embroidery projects. My main focus right now are 2 quilts (a baby blanket for my niece and a quilt for my daughter), and my other daughters’ prom dress. I am trying out the pattern in less expensive fabric so I know it will fit her. That’s what I am working on now.

    Been busy with the UFO stack, and have actually finished 3 jackets and shells, but, as usual, have been sidetracked and have had the the best time making matching flower lapel pins. I have used the embroidery machine and free form stacked fabrics–and combinations of both. It has been exciting to see what develops. Now time to garden–Always something needing attention!!

  • March 27, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    Hey! I’ve missed your crafty videos, but want you to know that I recently tried the technique you showed for making little fabric roses out of satin. I actually used a red rayon blouse I had bought, brought home, and decided didn’t fit right. Receipt was missing (of course) so I decided to cut it up and make roses for some hair clips. I sewed beads in the center for some sparkle and they turned out really sweet! Thanks for all your crafty inspiration :)

    I would be beside myself if I were to win this awesome giveaway! I am new to this site, but have enjoyed Kathy’s creativity on Creative Juice (I just about cried when it stopped airing). Lately, I have been making the coolest scarves out of repurposed t-shirts, making tutus, tutu dresses, hairbows, and wreaths. I would love some more ideas to do with tshirts and would eventually like to make something for infants. Recently there have been quite a few ladies I know who have just had a baby or is expecting. I would love to make something for them. XX crossing my fingers XX

    I’m just about finished with my Easter Basket of Awesome. It’s an egg shaped basket (made from stiffened crochet thread wrapped around a balloon) filled to overflowing with all things “easter”. There are felt marshmallow peeps and bunnies, felt chocolate bunnies, cute little (non-“candy”) bunnies, a duckling hatching from a wet felted egg, chicks in nested wet felted easter eggs, wet felted jelly beans, embroidered chick and bunny pins, a lamb and a HAM (from fleece). The whole shebang is for my sister who made the mistake of saying “you can make stuff for me!”

    So glad to hear what you’ve been up to, I’d been wondering. :) My big project right now is a basement renovation, so not much time for crafting. We still have up the paper snowflakes we made — guess with spring blooming outside, it’s time to take those down! We also made “falling snow” curtains with lots of fishing line and white office stickers. Had plans to do three windows, but only got around to one. Oh well, it’s the process that counts, right? :)

I recently ( and reluctantly) fetid turned back to work from my maternity leave. I have always looked everything DIY and crafty. But recently I have become more and more obsessed with it. Aside from scrapbooking I recently took a meek hobby of seeing and quilting. After getting diagnosed with post partum depression. I used it as an outlet to help me fight my depression. So far it’s working, still have some bad days but love that I can get mentally get away and do or create something for my family and it has really helped me out. Thru you tube and the DIY DISH I discovers other websites and craft channels like plaidonline. Which I LOVE. I have made lots of projects featured from there. I made growth charts, clutches, purses, quilts, maniquin pin coushions, and used lots of MOD Podge. Thanks to you ladies I have been busy crafty and loving it. All your ideas have been wonderful and fun to make. Thank thank you thank you. Can’t wait to see what other projects you all come up with. And most of All thank you for unknowngly helping get thru my hard times. I really appreciate all you ideas that I use booth at home and at work teaching my troubled youth.

    I am teaching myself how to sew! My fondest memories as a kid were going to the fabric store with my mom knowing I’d be getting a new skirt from the fabric I picked. Now that I am a mom I feel it is a MUST to know how to sew. Right now I am working on a collection of stuffed animals for her, and a set of bean bags for her preschool class. I’m not very good right now, but she thinks I’m awesome! My goal is to be an expert in time to make her costume for her first school play.

Also I have made several in the hoop I spy bags for my five Grandchildren for the spring break and had my oldest granddaughter help me she was so impressed with printing out the list of what was in each spy bag and then with the use of freezer paper print the list on fabric and it became the back of the I Spy Bag so they know how many items they are looking for and what they are. The embroidery design was from “The Yummy Factory”, they have great ideas there for machine embroidery ideas. Please come back real soon Ok? Oh and Happy Easter too!

    I really miss you. You both brightend up my day. I know how life gets busy, and being a selfish person, “I want you back”. I was so excited to see an email from you today and was hoping for news on when we will see you again. I will keep my fingers crossed that it will be soon. Love your episodes and crafty ideas. I have made almost all of them. Thanks for sharing your time and wealth of knowledge with us. Come back soon.

    I am so glad you are all doing well, sad about the flood but as always you two seem to handle it with a smile!! Your videos used to make my day while I was living in Guam,(not much craft choices there!) But now I am here in VA, and still inspired by all your wonderful ideas!!! Hope to see you on video again soon, excited about the chenille pillows!!!

    I have been learning to crochet christening bonnets from antique patterns. Not the easiest thing to do. I am always trying new things. The ultimate curse of crafters.

    I used a new recipe from the book “quick and easy celebration cakes” a fortnight ago to make a three tiered lemon, vanilla and plain cake for a party. I was very happy and it turned out really well.

  • March 28, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    Hi Girls! I have really missed your DIY videos. I am starting a beginner’s sewing class next week, and I am going to begin by telling my students the story of how I got my start at sewing because of the easy patterns at http://www.youcanmakethis.com!
    Thanks for the inspiration

    I just recently joined a ‘block of the month’ quilt club at a local quilt shop! Not only does it give me the impetus to stay on task with my quilting, but surrounds me at least once a month with a room full of women who share the same passion. I love the camaraderie and friendships that have developed. And I look forward to my one hour every month of just “Mommy wants to have fun” time!

  • March 28, 2012 at 6:49 pm

    HOOOOORAY! So glad you are back:) Can’t wait to see what you will share with us:) LOVE watching your videos–always inspired:) THANKS for the chance to win–sbmmhoover at yahoo dot com

    with a new granddaughter due in June, I have been busy making pounds of flannel into receiving blankets of all sizes for our new Lady baby. A few baby projects and my sewing room turned into a safety hazard. I had to warn my DH turn the light on before entering. LOL.
    Mostly cleared out now I am working a UFO of lilac and rose turning twenty again quilt top, for my brother’s first grand daughter’s 2nd Birthday. It has been a busy first quarter for 2012.

  • March 28, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    I love your shows! Have made several pincushions from your patterns, and I just enjoy you girls! Glad I found this article. It is refreshing to hear other crafters admit they are working on the “balance” with wanting to create, being a mom, and also working! Sometimes I wonder if I am the only one that runs out of time at the the end of what seems like every day.
    Thank you for all your inspiration!

  • March 28, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    Hi Gals!
    We all miss the DIY Dish and all your fun projects and cute personalities!! But totally understand the need to set some things aside.

    Take care and best wishes always!

    Wow – your comment about the flood brought back memories. Many years ago, our decorating store flooded due to frozen pipe. What an experience – coping with loss of inventory as well as being shut down for some time to clean and repair (in below zero weather). I truly feel for you. Hope by now you are up and running better than ever. Enjoy your sites so much. Thank you.

I have been making the mini dressform pincushions you shared with us, they are a blast to construct and give as gifts. Thanks to you and Cathie for your generosity of the giveaway of books and supplies to make Cathie’s creations, I would love a chance to win the prize package. Look forward to seeing new project and ideas from you all real soon…

Currently, I’m making a rug from old blue jeans. Funny results after cutting the jeans apart (check out photo on my FB). And…my not so creative activity….spring cleaning 😛 Got to get it done….everyone’s coming to my house for Easter brunch and dinner!

We’ve really been in withdrawal since you have been gone. I’m currently working on several things, putting finishing touches on monthly birthday fabric postcards, working on completing 10 baby quilts, putting together “ribbons” for an AAQI quilt show put on by my fiber group: Dallas Area Fiber Artists, doing papercrafts, etc, etc, etc!!!!

  • Dawn Leonard
    March 29, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    It’s amazing how busy all of us moms can be. And to run a business (and in your case, several businesses), it can be very difficult to balance. I still haven’t quite mastered it! :)
    I’ve been working on several new things: dolls, dresses, new bag patterns, and I’ve gone back to my roots and started painting murals again.
    Good luck with balance!

    Dear Kris and Kim, I was looking for an easier way to make quilts for my family as presents for Christmas. I have moderate to severe arthritis so I was also looking for an easier way to make a quilt. I am so happy to have found both you ladies and your wonderful ideas. As you may well know with this economy, I am going back to basics with making my own gifts. There are things now I can and cannot do, but your way is going to be not so frustrating for me. God Bless to you both and to your families!!
    P.S. I don’t have cable or regular channels for that matter, so I will be tuning in on my computer. I’m so glad I ran into you ladies. Again thank you very much for the wonderful ideas!
    Take care and God Bless,

    Keep the collection to dry completely; several time should be enough unless you have used lots of levels, in which case instantaneously is better. Convert the dry collection over and use a leader to split the rectangular shape into 25cm items. Cut along each remove. Use the leader to evaluate 15cm durations along the top advantage of each remove. Measure 7.5cm in from one end of the base, then evaluate and level 15cm durations. Use the leader to sketch angled collections between the noticeable factors on the top and base of the strip; this will give you the pie bunting items.

    Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    great blog!

    I don’t know if it’s just me or if everybody else encountering problems
    with your website. It appears like some of the written
    text within your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody
    else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This could be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
