TTMT #515 – Clover Do Over

2019 Fat Quarter Lotto

April is my birthday month and you’re invited to help me celebrate by participating in the 5th Annual Fat Quarter Lotto

It’s super easy – send up to four fat quarters & I’ll draw a winner (or winners) “live” on Talk to Me Tuesday on April 30, 2019. There will be 1 winner per 50 fat quarters. Last year we had two winners with 50 fat quarters each and one winner with 25 fat quarters!

Watch last year’s live drawing!

Want an extra entry? Include orphan blocks for The Linus Connection! The Linus Connection is an Austin, TX-based blanket making charity. I use orphan quilt blocks to make quilts to donate. I also share orphan blocks with fellow volunteers to make quilts. Any orphan quilt blocks collected will be turned into quilts for kids in crisis in Central Texas. This collection is personally done by me, Jennifer Ofenstein, and is not sponsored or endorsed by The Linus Connection.

The Sewhooked Fat Quarter Lotto is not a sponsored event and I am not eligible to win. This is just my way to say Thank You for another fun year of sharing! There is no purchase necessary and no obligation to play. I will pay for all return postage.

Craft: Earring Hanger


I don’t make a lot of New Year’s Resolutions, but I do start each year trying to be more organized.  I’m starting with my personal spaces this year; my jewelry, make-up and the like.

I love big, swishy earrings, handmade, hand beaded, felted, you name it.  I have loads that were made by friends and a few made by myself, and those are definitely my favorites.

Storage has gotten a bit precarious and I’m usually trying to disentangle the mess and find a missing earring.

For quite a long time, I’ve used a small earring organizer to keep my studs and other small earrings that have a stem and a back.  It was time for a new, bigger version so I can finally find all of my fabulous earrings!

You need:

  • a picture frame with no glass (recycled or raw wood)
  • plastic canvas
  • hot melt glue
  • scissors
  • ribbon
  • stapler (a staple gun works great if you have one) or thumb tacks
  • optional:  paint & glitter


Cut the plastic canvas to fit inside your frame.


Optional:  Paint the frame the color of your choice.  If the frame is recycled and has a finish, you’ll need to give it a light sanding before painting.

I’m particularly fond of glitter…so I sprinkled some on my frame while it was still wet.


Once the paint and glitter are dry, place the plastic canvas inside the back of the frame.  Go around all four sides with hot melt glue.


This is what you have now!


Cut a piece of ribbon long enough to reach from one corner of the frame to the other, plus a little for turning under on the ends.  The length here depends on how you want your final product to look and how much of the ribbon you’d like to show.  Turn the ends under and staple or tack in place.


Hang on the wall and add all of your lovely dangly earrings!  Works best with French hook earrings.
