The item for Today is below.
Item: You are hunting for a "Deer in Snow".
Clue: You will find it in the Afghan patterns!

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

Featured Pattern

I have designed this square with two different last rounds so that you can have a choice as to the look you want to achieve. The purple &  yellow square uses the RND 6A instructions and the Plain Cream colored square uses the RND 6B instructions. This would be great for use in potholders.

Wild Granny Square

Every day except for Sunday, the featured pattern will be one that is already free.  On Sundays ONLY, I will start featuring a Paid Members Patterns and make it available for printing, if you miss it, you are out of luck. You still won't have access to the PDF file however.

Tuesday's Tips

  • Egg Carton Ornament Storage
    If you have a miniature tree with a bunch of mini ornaments, a great place to organize them is in an egg carton. You can use as many as you need and they stack nicely inside a bigger box! Best of all they are free!
  • A Use for Old Wall Paper Scraps!
    If you have extra wall paper from a recent redecoration, you can use the scraps to cover wooden craft boxes and use them as an accent in the same room as the wall paper is in. You can also use the wall paper as gift wrap. You can cover an oatmeal box that comes with a plastic lid with wall paper, cut a hole in the top an you will have a yarn caddy to keep your skein of yarn clean while working on a project.
  • Keeping Projects Clean
    Keep your WIP in a plastic zipper bag when you take it with you to work on when you are away from home whether you are in a waiting room or at the beach. hehe This keeps it clean and all together. 
  • Meat Tray Pallettes
    Foam meat trays can be used a palettes for paint or glue. When done with your project, just throw away or if you have extra paint on it, cover with plastic wrap so that you will not waste any of it. Then when all of the paint is used up, then you can toss it.
  • Bread Tab Marker Labels
    If you use bread tabs to mark your crochet or knit work, you can use a small label on it to mark your place. Then if you need to reuse it, you can just put another label over it.
