Slowly Adding Things

Hello Everyone, Hope you are all doing well.

I've been slowly going through my craft room to find things I know I will never use, stitch, sew, etc. and adding them to my "For Sale" tabs.

I've added to the RV & Tent Organizers, Smalls, and Photo Albums tabs.
If your interested or curious have a peek. There are also some of my Organizers and Photo Albums on my hubs blog CampingBastards.com

Next will be some needlework charts that I have, some I've stitched and will never stitch again, others I looked at and thought why the heck did I get that.

Check back weekly to see what other items I add.

Take Care Everyone
Hugs, Sandy

A Couple of Products Reviews

Hello Everyone, Hope this finds you doing well.

I tried the "Aleene's Original Super Fabric Adhesive" for adhering Velcro to the straps of my canvas Hanging Organizers, the glue stuck to the fabric amazingly well, the Velcro not at all. Every single piece of Velcro pulled right off with very little fuss, I had a couple that I thought would make it, but a regular wash in cold water and the only thing they were stuck to was each other. 
 So, great for fabric, especially heavy fabrics, but not for Velcro.

You can see the glue patches above the snaps.

  I'm not completely satisfied with is my Dritz Ironing-board cover. It is hard to get it and keep it straight and getting water on it while spritzing to remove creases results in yellowish stains that you can see in the above photo.  Maybe it's just our hard water. Directions say not to machine wash so I will live with it as is since it doesn't leave marks on the fabrics. 

Just a bit of information if your thinking of getting either one of these items.

ORT Report and Other Happenings

Hello Everyone: Hope this finds you safe and well.

I've started to clear out some of the things I've made and will never use, so in the process I've changed my blog a bit and will be adding items for sale as I take pictures and get them posted. I'm also going to slowly re-add my free charts so they will all be in one place, eventually.
So check back every now and then to see what I'm offering. I'll try to post when I add something for sale.

On to the ORT Report.

All from sewing, not even one little x was stitched.😢

 Thread doesn't take up much space, but the fabric scraps do.

That's one big pile of fabric scraps. 

Until next post.....

Take Care & Happy Stitchin' and Sewing
Hugs, Sandy

Finishes for the 5th Wheel

Hello Everyone, Hope all is well with you.

Finished these off at the end of March. They will hang in our 5th wheel vacation home. They are my original designs using John Muir quotes and are stitched on 28 count with a combo of DMC and Caron Collection Wildflowers.

Finished as flat hangers.
Added a door charm, little metal stars, and a Moose button I cut the shank off of and glued down.

Stuffed hangers.
Added a key charm, but I might replace it with a compass charm at a later date. Didn't think the other two needed anything. Simple jute hangers on all.

Take Care
Hugs & Stitches, Sandy
