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?

I think I am done adding back to the site the pages that have been missing. If you think there are more missing pages, I want to hear about it! Just let me know by clicking on the Contact Us button. I won't know unless you tell me.

Featured Pattern

Today's Featured Pattern

This pattern is Free on September 24th only!

This crocheted baby rattle is made with 2 cat toys inside. Make sure you use cat toys that have plastic bells inside since metal ones could rust. It is made in 2 parts which are then sewn together.

This Week's Tip

Rotary Cutting Paper Bead Strips & Fabric

If you use a rotary cutter, quilt ruler and cutting mat to cut your paper into strips for making paper beads, add a 4-5 pound weight to the top of your ruler to help keep it's place while using the rotary cutter. The weight will help keep the ruler in place. I also use mine when I am cutting fabric!
