It's going around fast! I'm getting over it, but hubby's got it now. Hope I don't get a repeat.

I finally got my camera to work so I can post pics!! Yeah!!

I made these fire starters to help keep a warm cozy fire this winter.



I started by putting drier lint in the sections of a paper/cardboard egg carton. Then I poured candle wax from an old candle in each section.



After that, I cut the sections apart, wrapped with wax paper and tied with string.

I gave these to my dad for Christmas to start his woodstove. I'll be making more for camping this summer.

Here's my other winter project. I made fingerless gloves for my nieces and cousins this winter. I always forget to take pics, but remembered for the last one. lol



I made these using the arms off wool sweaters. I just cut the arm the length I wanted. Then zig-zag stitched around the cut edge and folded back. The I used my hand to measure where to put the thumb hole. I cut it tiny because it stretches as I zig-zag stitch that edge.

I'll post an in progress pic as I make a set for my daughter. My camera was full and I couldn't download so I could erase the pics because the batteries wouldn't hold a charge for long enough. Finally figured out I needed new rechargable batteries and replaced them. lol I'll be back to post more pics later.

OK, here's the ones I made for Grace. I was out of sleeves. So I just sewed a tube. Then I zig-zagged the raw wdges.





I cut a small hole for the thumb hole. This stretches so I cut very small then zig-zag.



Fol up the cuff and here they are!!
