The New Normal

Houston, Texas | 32 Sales

Announcement    The New Normal is currently in transition. Because of Corvid 19 Pandemic our world is turned Upside Down. Masks are a common necessity, and will be until a vaccine is available. So, while leaving the things in stock I’ve had my shop, will begin to change.

Teaching kids at home? I taught Elementary school for 35 years, and have a Masters Degree in Teaching from Webster University. I participated in the beginnings of www.journeynorth.org but honestly have been retired for twelve years. I enjoy sewing and creating fabric activities to practice skills. Think of it like a washable fabric board game. Many are designed around skills for younger children. If you have a skill your kids need help with, please convo me to discuss a possible collaboration that isn’t just paper and pencil. First item developments for each item sold will be free. I’ll create and take a photo. Then list the activity with a generic photo, to be created at someone else’s order. Not screen time for kids...

Upcycling lovely woolen fabrics, beads from damaged glamourous dresses, lovely felted items from sweaters or knitted items...

My interests change along with what the universe puts into my hands. I have been a fiber artist for many years. My current best loved thing to do is rug hook. Or work on finished sets for Cowboy Campfire Coffee Break. Cross Stitch and Collage are working their way into my shop. :)

Additional policies and FAQs
Cowboy Campfire Coffee Break Play sets are designed with Toddlers or older kids in mind, (3 - 99) They are basically small quilts and are designed to be machine washable and or dry able. They should be examined after rewashing for loose threads, or torn seams. Supervision of use is recommended.

Hooked Rugs should NOT be put into a washing machine. If surface soiling occurs it should be blotted up immediately with a clean cloth. Most of my hooked items are for decorative purposes, to be hung or placed on a table.

Many of the items I create are NOT CHILD SAFE Materials will be in the listing or tags, and might actually be dangerous to a young or unsupervised child. The chicken wire wings on the Dragonfly makedo would not be appropriate as a gift or decoration for a child's room.

Items that contain parts such as rusty springs also pose possible dangers that should be obvious because of the part.
