I did a little experiment the other day. I had seen on the internet that you can make your own crinkle ribbon with seam binding! I had a few old pkgs. in my stash (original price, 19 cents)! You wet it, scrunch it up, dry it, scrunch it again, and there you have it, easy peasy, crinkled ribbon! I"m sure this will make gorgeous flowers.
Even when you stretch it out it still holds its crinkles..I"m pretty sure every thrift store around has old seam binding that somebody did not know what to do with! As they say, "One mans trash, is another mans (womens) treasure!

Well, where the heck have I been and what have I been doing?? I haven"t been anywhere and I am now finally back in the swing of things(I hope) and am in a Winter/Christmas DYB RR in CQI. This is the 1st block that I received to work on which belongs to Cathy L.. You see in a DYB RR we have to make up 6 -6" blocks and each girl does one complete block. We send around a little book to go with the blocks requesting what we would like to see on our blocks. Cathy just said do what Christmas means to you & have fun! So I chose this block with this adorable little girl and went to town. I surrounded her with pine boughs with sequins & beads. Also every spot I could find I added snowflakes! Then we have a lightpost similar to this one at the end of our driveway (dooryard for my friends in Colorado) and I thought it would look nice on this block. So Cathys blocks were mailed off Nov.1st to Lorrie in Canada to work her magic on another block!
I have now received Wendys block and have picked one and having a ball working on hers as well. Her request was to stick to winter rather than Christmas...When I have her block finished I"ll post a pic...In the meantime I"ll leave you with this hint....Have you ever looked in the winter sky and seen a snowman sleeping on a lacey crescent moon??? While were on the subject of snowmen, do you think if a snowman farts does his butt melt?? I"ll leave you with that thought!
