This weeks home of the week is a stunner, I could even live with all the furnishings if I had too, well minus all the little kids stuff, as we don't have any little kids around. The only thing other than the price that lets this place down is the back yard, it's not very big and very over looked, if I was paying that price I would expect a lot more privacy.
The condo of the week, is not my cup of tea, although in a very desirable area, look at the monthly maintenance fees...........way, way over priced. Very limited photos, so have no idea what half of the place actually looks like?
I get Sew News magazine, the kids got it for me as a birthday gift a couple of years ago. I was reading the April/May 2012 issue the other night and it had some really neat things in it. One thing they features were Comfort Dolls, they are handmade dolls people make for domestic abuse victims in the States, here is a link to the blog I wonder if we have such a thing in Canada, or is there something similar in other parts of the world?
They also provide a link to an article on how to make a waterproof raincoat out of a shower curtain.......yes a shower curtain. It actually looks really neat!! They also feature a how too from Sew It All where you collect thread and other odds and ends from your sewing room and make a bowl. There is obviously a few other steps but it really looks neat, the link to that is here.
Are you looking for Applique's? Here is a link to some free applique's, there are many more that you can buy. Even though Sew News is an American Magazine, I see there is an advert for the Creativ Festival here in Mississauga in April. Dd and I plan on going in April, I haven't got the tickets yet, hoping to find a good discount code.........haven't yet. Is anyone going?
