PS I hope what I know as pressie isn't what you are going to put on your blog.

I wonder if your google reader will go nuts with that word.

Very cute! And very timely -- I'm in such a mood to organize stuff today! I can see cute little cans filled with sewing tools! Thanks so much for sharing this idea.

Love this idea for picnics, so great! Thanks for the link to Niki's blog...they'll be in our prayers.

Cute picnic project. I haven't made those in years, but I like the idea of doing them for the 4th of July. What a cool offer from The Quilt Shoppe. I am going to check with my Santa's helper too.

Prayers to your friend Niki, her son Marcus and his doctors.

Sherri said...

Great tutorial...so many uses for those fabric covered cans! And what a generous offer from The Quilt Shoppe!

ferne said...

Very useful idea! and well written too. I am going to do up my Yogurt container that I use for my thread and scrap trash when sewing. Thanks for all the sharing!

rachel...i love the picnic helpers tutorial! So cute! I have done something similar before to hold pens, pencils and miscellaneous stuff on my desk at school--I have used cute school themed fabric! So very cute. I think it is time to make some fresh ones and some picnic ones, as well! Have an awesome weekend.

Rachel...the tutorial on the can is great! And I was very surprised to see your near (in?) Elyria...

If you need something to do Sunday night...church of the open door is having a celebration for ride for hope at 5pm. These are friends of mine from here in California that are riding across the united states in 10 days on bikes! They are raising awareness for the orphan children of aids victims in Africa.

I always love reading your blog!
Now i just have to find time to do a few crafts!

I'll be praying for Niki and her son.

Love the picnic helpers. These can be used for so many things, not just picnics. Thanks so much for sharing. BTW, how do you get your name (copyright) on your pictures?

The Quilt Buddy said...

Thanks for the tutorial! I can think of many other uses for them!

I also have the same question as above. How do you get the copyright on your photos?

I visited Nikki's blog and sent her prayers from me.

Thanks for sharing!
