~W.W.W. ...MAking A LiSt~

Good Morning,

I am still feeling this flu bug. My head feels like a brick. Good grief!!
Anyways, I am drinking coffee ( and a glass of alka seltzer cold)and looking for some crafts to use as christmas gifts this year. I am going to give at least half of the folks on my list- HOMEMADE gifts.

Here are some ideas out there on the internet that I thought you might enjoy.

no sew rustic burlap table runner ( now how prim is that?!) :)

No sew quilt

No sew vintage ornament

no sew sachets

Altered JArs


  1. Sweet and simple ideas... I love them!

    Hope you're on the mend soon! Maybe we can have a race to getting better cause I still feel like CRAP and there's no sign of things letting up!

    Hugs, Kimberly

  2. I hope you are feeling better soon!! I too will be giving alot of homemade gifts for Christmas! Take care!~Wendy

  3. HI kim love all your homemade gifts do you have the pattern for the no sew quilt i would love to make one,love the colours of your one.Its great to recieve prim homemade gifts, my friend always makes items for my christmas and birthday.Take care~Kate~

  4. Sorry Kim,i forgot to say i hope you are feeling better.and on the mend.~Kate~

  5. I haven't been sick and I have been doing the same things as you! LOL I spent yesterday researching wool and penny rugs. I found a few free patterns that I printed off or saved the links for later. My mind is wandering and I have so many things that I want to do and here I sit at the dang computer!

    This morning I messed with MySpace! That's it. I decided to try the new Profile thing and spent a while making everything "just so". What a waste of time, huh? LOL

    I haven't really thought about gifts. I always wait until the last minute and then only do what I feel I need to do. It's actually kind of better that way so I don't spend half a year making items for everyone I know to only have them not care. This way only the important ones get gifts :D LOL

    Can't you sew? I just noticed that most of your crafts are "no sew". You must learn to sew if you can't. There is so much you can do then. I have pretty much taught myself to do everything that I can. The internet is an awesome teaching tool :)

    Christmas stuff...mine will be coming out in about two weeks :D

    Have a good day. Feel better soon!


  6. Hope you are feeling better soon! Thanks for the great ideas!

    My sister did a new sew quilt for my daughter it is super pretty and was apparently soooo easy!
    Looks very effective though:)
    Get well

    Hope you will be feeling better soon!
