Scavenger Hunt

Today's Scavenger Hunt Item
The item for Today is below.
Item: You are hunting for "an I Heart You in Red".
Clue: You will find it in the Coaster or Motif patterns!

I am now using images that are in the free Paper Bead Generator for the daily Scavenger Hunt Items.

The daily scavenger hunt item can only be found for one day.
I no longer keep them available to find for the whole month.

The instant prize could be either a discount or a download of something that is free for today only.



Featured Pattern

This is always a free pattern!

This heart fridgie is made by following a filet crochet chart then a round of shells is worked around the perimeter. Then the heart is embellished with pearl white and clear red beads which you can feel. The magnet on the back is from a magnet sheet you can get for printing on your inkjet printer. You can also recycle a large piece of flat sheet magnet if you have one.

Feel the Love Fridgie

Every day, from now on, I will post either a members only pattern or a free pattern. It will say whether it is free or not. Once a week, I will offer 1 paid members pattern per week. I don't know what day it will be, it will change from week to week. So you need to check the newsletter every day to see if the current featured pattern is already always free, a paid member's pattern I want to remind you of, or a Paid members pattern that is actually free for that day only. This is so I can feature current holiday related patterns, whether they are free or not.

My Plans for  2020

 I have plans for 2020! One reason I merged the JPF Crochet Club and Paper Bead Crafts and Changed the name to Just Plain Fun is because I eventually want this site to have more creative crafts added to the site such as Quilting, Sewing, Plastic Canvas and Jewelry Making. I also plan to keep adding new crochet patterns, bead sheets, paper bead projects and videos to go with most of the new projects I add to the site.  I also am working on a book with games that I have had bouncing around in my head for several years. It's time get them out of my head and into a book! More on that later! Basically, I want one web site for all of the creative endeavors I have been wanting to work on. It's easier to manage one site than more than one.

I am going to be working on these plans on my days off from my Census Job. Don't worry, the Census job is temporary, about 16 weeks total once I get going. It should be done sometime in October.

Tuesday's Tips

Fix Kid's Clothes
If your kid's clothes have holes, one way to be able to wear them still is to applique cute cutout shape onto the hole and put a liner on the back side of the fabric. You can get the shapes by using cookie cutters as a template. Then just use the satin stitch on your sewing machine to applique the patch on. If the hole is in a place where the machine cannot reach, you can use a fusible web product to fuse the patch onto the fabric then use a hand satin stitch to cover the edges. Or you can use a fabric paint to cover the edges.

Safe Large Paint Brushes
If a painting job is not finished and you want to keep the brushes from drying, out store the wet cleaned brushes, in a bucket of water which is tightly covered if working with latex or acrylic paint. Do not do this when painting with oil based paints.
