    Looks like you have changed some things on your site. I like the changes. I love the ideas you send out. I have made two fabric journals with my extra fabric. One was for a bestie for her birthday and it is brown and blue. The other is for a breast cancer fighter to use during her radiation treatments, of course this one was pink! I just printed off one of the stuffed toy patterns for my son. I have a cashmere sweater that was apparently attacked by moths and has some holes. I cannot donate it so I will recycle it into the adorable mooshy bunny. Thank you for all of your ideas!!!
