Re: Book Giveaway: "Magpies, Homebodies, and Nomads"

The title caught my eye. I have a friend who's constantly knitting goodies. If I win, I'll give it to her, so our group of friends can continue to benefit! ;>) (Keeping fingers crossed!)

Re: Book Giveaway: Quilting With a Modern Slant

Although I look for inspiration everywhere, I've been a fairly traditional quilter for the last decade. I think it's time I learned to put a modern twist to quilts, particularly those intended for my grandkids (who may think traditional = old!). I'm certain this book would give me a big boost in that regard & it would be a welcomed addition to my reference shelf.

Re: Book Giveaway: Kaffe Fassett's Quilt Grandeur

Kaffe's use of color is so inspiring! I'm a big fan & would love to add this book to my collection! I find turning the pages in any of his books gets the wheels turning in my brain! Thanks for offering such a wonderful book in a contest.

Re: How to Make a Snowstorm

This is such a cool idea & so easily changeable for the different themes/seasons! The wheels started turning & I ended up combining the ideas from others (thank you!) -- I mixed up some reinforcer holes w/ stars & punched out snowflakes & also made some various-sized circles & snowflakes punched from the silver duct-sealing tape (it has a very shiny silver side & a paper-backed adhesive on the reverse - great for crafts), which we stuck together; you can even write/emboss it. I liked the idea of fishing line, but didn't have any, so I used monofilament thread! It's so fine you really can't see it!! I hung the strands from a tension rod, so I wouldn't have tape on the window frame. I also think this would be so elegant put behind some sheer curtains perhaps w/ some rope or small led lights, for a very sophisticated effect - just allow some space between them. If taken down & stored w/ care, you could re-use them, too! We rarely get snow here in the southwest, but this can certainly add to the mood of the season. I'm pretty sure my cats are going to enjoy them, too!
