Features for Today:

I have quilting-on-the-brain – I’ve never made a quilt but I’m about to embark on that venture (I’m already gathering fabrics).  So I love to see that other non-quilters, like Oh Mandie, can do it!  – love her colors!  Maybe my new bedroom scheme…

How about this amazing picnic table at Going on at the Glenn’s – wow!!  Did you guys follow plans? Can you point us to them?  I want to make this!

Check out these Embroidered Hands at The Mother Lode – inspired me to get to teaching my girls how to embroider!

And I want to bust out some polymer clay so I can make cute little ornaments like this from Whimsical Creations:

Love this patchwork skirt from Living with Punks!! Great job!

And now, who was the most visited link?!?!  Guesses anyone??  It’s not a shock, that’s for sure…
Once again, Sarah from Welcome to the gOOd life has whipped up something unreal – I am always WOWed by her sewing abilities and eye to see something in what I think is nothing.  This time she took a skirt that I would have discarded and turned it into an amazing dress:

Thanks for linking everyone!!  If you were featured feel free to grab the button: – THIS IS THE NEW CODE!!  If you have EVER been featured before, my old button turned into a blaring ad for photobucket so you’ll need to re-grab – I know it’s a hassle, so my apologies!

Also, did you notice? I made it to SYTYC – SoYouThinkYou’reCrafty – more on that later today…

    Oh thanks for featuring me. And yes we did make this table from plans. It is a plan from a book I bought my husband last year for his birthday. It is called “The Complete Book of Woodworking” There are TONS of awesome plans in it. I got it from Barnes and Noble online I think. Highly recommend if you want to get into building things for yourself! We are also huge fans of Knock Off Wood blog.
