I have been wanting to try some needlepoint for a bit and feel closer to actually starting a project. My mom stitched a footstool for her mother in the 1970s and was telling me about it (sadly, it's gone now) and I want to make one. I don't think I'm going to start with a footstool, just a small swatch to begin with. I found this book at Powells, used, and it's exactly what I was hoping to find. I'm reading it before bed like it's a mystery I can't put down.
- the girls and I are having fun watching the short movies on BrainPOP. We have only seen the free ones—they are pretty funny and well done.
- How to fold a paper box, over on the Creatvebug blog. We are snowed in here, this will be perfect for today.
