Blog Posts of the Week III

This bunch of posts spans two weeks since I pretty much quit reading blogs the week before the wedding.

First, my Mom blogged about the ring attendant's pillow that she made for the ring attendant. It's a gorgeous pillow, and I think it's nicer than anything I've seen in stores.

Knitted Bear is expecting, and knitting lots of baby things. These bibs are awesome, and are going on the "to make for my hope chest and/or any pregnant friends" list.

Catherine's Tatting Attempts has some kitties that like to help with tatting. They look so sweet in the pictures, though. I've yet to have our kitties try to help with tatting, but they have tried to help with scrapping, knitting, and quilling projects. The picture on the left is one of my little 'helpers'.

This is one of three posts from Feelin' Feminine. This post has a detailed tutorial on how to fix corner tears in a skirt or dress. I've only had a tear like this once that I can remember. I mended it, but every time I see it, it says "Sarah mended this."

The second post from Feelin' Feminine is for a natural bug repellent. People tell me that the price for being so sweet is being a perpetual target for mosquitoes and other nasty biting bugs. I usually use a repellent with Deet in it, but someone recently told me that Deet could cause some health problems. I'll be mixing some of this repellent up very soon!

The third post from Feelin' Feminine is about Jewelweed. I have never heard of this before, but apparently it helps with acne.  Do you or anyone you know use it? Where do you purchase it from? I have super sensitive skin, and am always looking for gentle ways to deal with acne.

Sarah, I have a very good supply of jewelweed in my garden. I use it to make soap.

Love the pic of Klaus! When did you take it? She got quite frisky with the rope tonight - too bad you missed it!

Thanks for including the pillow I made in your posts of the week. You made my day!
