Blog Feature: Helping Little Hands
Once again, I'm blaming this on Lindsey. Who got me hooked on crafty blogs. And then I got my sister hooked on crafty blogs. I've created a monster.
After a few weeks of my sister Polly and I starting online conversations with, "Hey! So did you see this tutorial?" she has finally decided to start her own crafty blog. You can find it HERE or on my side bar in the "crafty blogs" section.
I'd like to say this about Polly: while I'm dutifully copying and pasting great tutorials I find, she actually makes the crafts we see on everybody else's blogs and spend hours talking about. And she makes lots of other cool things. And they always turn out really good. Polly's quilts, for example, make my quilts want to go hide in a closet. Forever. Perhaps this is because Polly lucked out with the (only) math skills in the family in addition to the crafty streak that seems to run in my sisters and me. (Sorry, David. I'm just not sure you've got it.) In other words, Polly knows how much fabric to buy in the first place. And she bothers to measure things. And she understands how it's all going to fit together from the beginning of the project. (My own personal attitude being more of a "let's try it this way and see how it turns out" approach.)
Polly's new blog is great. But don't take my word for it.
