Good ideas :D

The one tutorial I was really interested in wouldn't allow me to see it until I had already downloaded a blank page. No thanks. I would have MUCH preferred small thumbnail pictures of each craft before being sent away to look at a different page, and this totally could have been done in no more than two pages, if not one.

I made a pillow for a 2 yr old grand daughter.
Love the hint to put one over fan for winter. I'll
be using this one.

these are really cute and good ideas, but probably require a bit more 'go' than I have.
I thought I was doing well to use an old pillow case to cover my pedestal fan before I put it away for the winter. :D
