Knitting, Crafts, Food



So colorful, so fun, I love the idea of this. Go fly a kite! These are Aeroplay Kites, a do-it-yourself package for children between the ages of  9 and 12. The package will make two kites and consists of  two containers, one tube holding wooden dowels and one box that contains materials to tie the kites together.


I am seeing more and more jewels on clothing, in hair etc. lately. This would be so easy to make a hair accessory for yourself by adding a few faux jewels to a headband or whatever you could come up with.

What you’ve all been waiting for, right? Some knitting! This lovely fair isle face cloth is a beaut, is it not? I love the interplay of light and dark colors against a neutral background. She knit this in a cotton yarn pulled from her stash collection.
