I made some placemats with it for the grandsons. Give them a piece of chalk and that should keep them busy while supper is being made. There are lots of other neat ideas---aprons, calendars,etc.
Let me know what you would make and I will randomly select a winner and send a 56" x 15" piece of chalkcloth to you. (enough to make the tablerunner). Winner will be picked Wednesday, Dec.28,2011.
Chalkcloth comes 48" wide and sells for $10.00 a yard.

I used Fairy Frost fabric which is a white fabric with a silver metallic glitter on it. The picture, of course, does not do it justice. If you seen it at one of the shows you know what I mean. I carry the Fairy Frost fabric at $15.00 a yard. The kit (as shown) can be found on the kits page and the pattern can be found on the patterns page under "Don't Look Now".

This is a new purse pattern that I thought was unique in that it uses plastic canvas as part of the interfacing. Now if you have been into crafts you probably have some of that plastic canvas hanging around, you know the stuff that was made into everything you could think of---notepad holders, flyswatter covers ,christmas ornaments, etc., etc. You still see items made from it at craft shows. That's the stuff you use to made the bag have some shape. You also use "Decor Bond" interfacing.

These are my samples for the "Folded Snowflake" workshop that I did last week Wednesday for the Chatham -Kent Quilt Guild. I really enjoy making them and the technique is easy once you see how it's done. Debbie Richards has several more "folded" patterns which you will find on my website.The following is another one of Debbie's pattern's called Folded Kaleidosquare. I made this small table topper to go along with a wedding gift for a wedding we attended last week. Her kitchen is white and black with red accents so I thought this fabric worked well especially for a kitchen. I love the fabric! I think it would look great used in the "Home Cooking Casserole Cover" pattern too.

After going to Canada's Wonderland with our youngest 2 children, Krista and Michael on Saturday, we continued on and spent the rest of the weekend with the grandson's (and their parents). It sure is neat to hear that they are excited that Oma and Papa are here. How can you not help but love these cuties even if they do put purple crayon all over the new family room walls!

The two "new" patterns are here from "Crabapple Hill Studios. I haven't tried Meg's crayon method yet for the shading but it looks nice. I hope to try it on a pillow first. You will need approximately 20 skeins of Cosmo "Seasons" embroidery floss #8041 ( available soon-on order).
