Where Creativity is Just Plain Fun

Membership is Free!

I have decided to end the Paid Memberships Program and just go with the Points Program. If you are a paid member, you signed up for a lifetime membership and are no longer paying for memberships. I am not really making any money from new memberships so it does not make sense to keep that part of my business going. Instead, membership is going to be point based. I do not plan to change this again. My income will be from sales of Paper Bead Rollers, downloads for people who don't want to be a member, books I publish in the future on Amazon, templates and template bundles, ads on the site and YouTube revenue.

All downloads, that cost points, no matter what level you are at, will now cost 20,000 points each unless otherwise noted on the individual pages.

Just Plain Fun

Daily Update

I have decided to shorten the daily update a little bit and will make an attempt to add other featured stuff, as well as the daily crochet pattern and bead sheet, from the site every few days and perhaps thoughts for the day, little tidbits of what is taking up my time so you will know why I haven't been adding brand new stuff to the site in a while.

What am I Doing?

Today I started adding Sudoku Puzzles to the site.

I have started making Christmas gifts for my family and today I will be working on a shopping bag for someone in my family. I am crumb quilting it. I do plan to publish the pattern in the future but for now I am working on the piecing. So if you are into crumb quilting, and you are interested in making a shopping bag with crumb quilting, start piecing 2 panels that are 18" x 21", the same size as fat quarters, I will show you how to make a shopping bag with them! You will also need lining of any whole piece of fabric of the same size, two fat quarters or a half yard of cotton cut in half along the fold.

The Recent Addition section of this newsletter will be updated on an irregular basis. This gives those of you who miss a chance, to see the new posting, to get to view them, before they are changed to something new.

Since this month is October, I will be featuring all of the Halloween related patterns whether they are always free or not.

This Week's Tip

Stringing Beads Before Stitching

If you crochet with beads, put the beads in a shallow dish to make it easier to scoop them up one or two at a time. When working with beads, most of the time you will need to put the beads onto the thread or yarn first before starting with crocheting.
