Because we are in Southern California, we’re able to be outside most of the year. We do a lot of entertaining and much of it is on our patio. It’s nice to change up the look of our patio furniture, and we can do so pretty regularly with just a little fabric and a glue […]
Beginner crochet pattern for a fun and easy coffee cozy.
My friend Rhonda is a crafty genius. She can do a little bit of everything, including crochet things. I cannot crochet. I think I have a mental block about it for some reason. Maybe I had some sort of yarn trauma in my childhood I have yet to come to terms with. I don’t know. […]

If you can wrap a gift, you can recover a chair cushion….
…. well, temporarily. Here’s the situation: I love our dog, but she isn’t too nice to our outdoor furniture. We have a set that is super comfy, but she has gotten up onto the cushions to sleep. That has made them dingy and a little thread-bare in places. We host Thanksgiving and Mother’s Day Brunch […]
No-sew curtain panels.
Let me say this out of the gate: I can sew, I just usually choose not to. (OK, I almost ALWAYS choose not to.) I sew with a glue gun. (Don’t you judge me.) I don’t usually buy pre-made curtain panels. I found a great discount fabric store where I can get gorgeous fabrics anywhere […]
