How to Clean Your Ceiling Fan...  We love this trick for dusting off the blades of a grimy ceiling fan without getting a face full of dust.    Simply slide each blade, one at a time, into a pillowcase and wipe off the blade with the inside of the pillowcase. All the dust, dirt, and debris will stay inside. Then simply shake out the case outside and throw it in the laundry bin. by shawn

took an old window and painted the back using paint and my star stencil. I used both house paint and craft paint that I had on hand. I added a touch of brown to my white because I wanted a more distressed look on my old window. I started with the white, wait for it all to dry then paint blue over the white stars in one thick stroke. Do another coat when it drys if desired. Then paint the red stripes by aurelia

“Just let this old box gather dust. No one can open it, no one will even notice it. Let it become a strange little thing standing on a street corner. And over the years, the world will move on, and the box will be buried. And if you wanna remember me, then you can do one thing. That’s all, one thing. Have a good life. Do that for me, Rose. Have a fantastic life. “ by constance

OK, the trick to making sure your second row of stitching catches the back bias edge is all about the first stitching line and not the bias inself. Make sure your second row is above the original stitching line (towards the fabric edge).  If it falls on top or below it then it won't catch at the back. Do this by pressing your bias top edge just a smidge over the stitching row - this keeps everything straight as well. by CottageBianca
