Re: How to Make a Magazine Reed Box

Picture this: two pieces of same-size cardboard, with a square cut out for a picture, leave one end open to slide it in, a ribbon hanger, and viola, a perfect Father's Day present for the kids to make. Thanks for the inspiration!

Re: Crochet Artist Makes a Statement by Covering Gas Station

C'mon folks, don't we need food for the soul, too? As far as the waste of material goes, I'm sure I could have made several squares out of bits and pieces that aren't good for much else.

Art is always defined by the taste of the viewer. I say anything that encourages someone to try a new craft is a good thing. Fiber arts like sewing and quilting have been on a downward spiral for a while now. The economy is changing that, but inspiration comes from many places.

As the family historian, I have many stories of the depression, but one was, my grandmother reworked the dresses they owned to look different and give their spirits a boost. I could spend a day looking at these pieces, and my spirit would be lifted. Sometimes that is what's needed.
