Book Review: Crafty Chica's Guide to Artful Sewing by Kathy Cano-Murillo

I think the glue gun is one of the best inventions EVER!

So imagine the glee when I saw Crafty Chica tweet "who wants to review my book?" Oh hellz yes!

Double that when I ripped open a package and held the book in my grubby wannabecrafty hands?

Crafty Chica's Guide to Artful Sewing by Kathy Cano-Murillo is every wannabe-crafty-glitter-loving-glue-gun-toting dream.

Crafty Chica starts off my giving you a Crafty 101 lesson and even what to look for in a sewing machine. She then gives you a bunch of patterns & guides that look pretty simple, not too time consuming and many are even kid-friendly. Which is good because this chica has little time for big projects (see my last post) and has a chica chica who always wants to help.

Get your craft on at an indie bookseller or Powells!

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show
