Video: How to Melt Your Old Candle Wax into New Candles from Craftcore

When I started stashing away my nearly empty candle jars, I had good intentions of repurposing the jars for storage or decor purposes.  Before I realized it, I had so many candle jars. There’s always those few millimeters of unusable wax at the bottom that I wanted combine together to form a new candle.

I’ll show you how my husband and I  turned 30 spent candle jars into 4 fresh candle jars.  The yield will depend on how much wax was left in each jar, so your mileage may vary.

Before we begin, just a quick disclaimer to ...

NEW PATTERN! Round Table Placemat from Cut Stitch and Piece

If you have a round table for your home, why not make a few of these elegant looking "round" placemats. They fit beautifully on a 42 inch and up dining table.

The placemat patterns come in three styles: a reversible, seven-wedge, and

Want a storm or two? We have lots of rain, thunder and lightning to give away. And we don't mind sharing.

~~No Way Out | storms over Wisconsin | by Phil Koch~~Amazing

These aren't my photos, by the way. Our storm came through in the middle of the night. Besides, I don't go out in storms or darkness, unless there's a most urgent reason.

Quilting room storage: Revamped vintage dresser from Cut Stitch and Piece

This is a great storage idea that I wanted to share. I can't afford much for storage furniture so I normally have to think outside the box to furnish my sewing room. I picked this little mid-century modern dresser at a thrift store. I desperately needed more storage for my batting, backing and those miscellaneous things that needed a home.  I forgot to take the before picture but,

A what-not-to-do DIY ~~ finished from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Several years ago I salvaged a dresser mirror from certain death in a land fill. It was in perfect condition. Well, it was ugly. The mirror was dirty, but a spritz of cleaner proved it to be without scratches or other problems. The frame was  another thing. No amount of cleaning was going to make the brown, worn-out wood less ugly. 



But I could see potential there. If only I could figure out where, how, when to  use it. I mean, I didn't really need a mirror, ugly or otherwise. So it got put in the studio, where ...

Zentangle Workshop and To-Do List Update from caledonia quilter

I joined the Ancaster Modern Quilt Guild, partly because I know some of the members, and partly because they seem to have a pretty vibrant program.  Last Saturday I attended a Zentangle Workshop hosted by them, presented by Kim Mastromartino.  You can find her on Facebook as The Inspired Quilter.

Here's some of the little cards we were working on...

Here's my same card after I (maybe?) finished it.  The class was lots of fun AND INSPIRING.  Which we all need, especially in January.  Right?

Vintage Double Wedding Ring & Gettin' There... from caledonia quilter

Sigh.  The Universe was teasing me by putting this on my work calendar as soon as I came home from Tobermory, where I'd been working on my own D.W.R.
There was a fascinating story that came with this quilt.  The gal who brought it related that when she was a child the quilt was made by a woman who was invited to live with her family in the mid '40s because she had nowhere else to go.  She stayed with them until she passed away in 1955. When my customer got the quilt top out of the ...
