... I would make these things right now:
Napkins from the Purl Bee
Wool felt pot holders from design*spongeRuffle pillow from Jones Design Company
Oak leaf bowls from Martha Stewart
Okay, so there's maybe another wrinkle aside from not having a sewing machine - I'm not really a sewer either. But with my rudimentary skills, I'm sure I could handle the first two. And work my way up to the others. And with a dedicated craft area, this seems like a tool I should have, doesn't it? Hmmm ... Christmas list maybe.
