I have made a lot of things in the past year. This tree stump trivet from Martha Stewart is used every day. We put the twins' water pitcher on it so I can enjoy a minute of dinner in between waitressing duties. It is made of tons of felt strips. A nice repetitive task.
I also made the tree branch draft dodger from Betz White's Book. It's stuffed with tons of plastic grocery bags and really works. I thought it might make a good project for work but it may be a bit too complicated for my guys right now. We did bag holders instead... Rectangle with 1.5" hem at either end sewed into a tube with elastic at both ends and a loop to hang it. Done.
Making is just good for the soul.
Thanks for visiting Hollyhocks.
