Just thought I'd let you guys know about a new shop in downtown Moorhead, in case you're ever up in Fargo. It's called the Knitty Gritty Cafe. They sell yarns and have coffee and stuff so you can do your work. I've only been in there once, and I don't knit or crochet so I don't really know much about it. But if you're up here, you should check them out.

I know you guys are all in GF or Minot, (I'm in Fargo) but you might be able to find some here at Tochi, the organic foods place, or Zandbroz Variety, both downtown. I know Zandbroz has a website so you could at least see if they have some in stock.

Sorry guys, I didn't realize the pictures weren't working, and I'm having a lot of trouble getting them uploaded because the file type is different than what they want and I don't know how to change it. Any ideas?

My grandma first taught me how to quilt in second or third grade, and the first block she taught me was a nine-patch. It's really easy, you just need nine squares, all the same size, and then you strip sew them together. I'll work on a little tutorial for you, if you want. Once you get this block down, you can do almost any block that uses the strip-sewing method. One pretty one I found is the antique tile (http://www.quilt.com/BlockOfTheMonth/1998/AntiqueTile.html). This website also has a lot of other beautiful blocks.

I made this quite a while ago, but just recently got it on the wall for use and thought I'd share it. I got the idea from the Hot Toddy section of an issue of ReadyMade (March/April 04).

I had this scrap of masonite with some sort of laminate or something over it from when my parents redid there kitchen--I guess it was from the cabinets or something. The surface is basically the same as a whiteboard, anyway. So instead of going out and buying something, I just used that and improvised a window in the felt so I'd have an area to write phone messages on. I just got felt from a fabric store and my scrap bin, and leftover ribbon from my wedding cake. It was really simple to make, just some hot gluing. The trick is to remember to make the circles at the ends of the openings, so you can see them, and so there's more give when you put stuff in the pockets.

I worked at an Ace for a few years and I did a lot of projects from things around the store. For example, I used cork rolls from the automotive section (usually used to make gaskets) to make bulletin boards, nuts and washers to make necklaces and bracelets, soft copper tubing to make sculptures and mobiles, and paint sample cards to make notecards.
