Happy Halloween!

Hope everyone is having a fun halloween. I have no special plans but we did get around to carving these pumpkins on Saturday night (mine’s on the left). I conveniently forget what a mess it can be every year. After we carved them, I roasted the seeds with butter and garlic, and since I’m the [...]

Fruitcake Softie, For the Fun of It

I’m not one to make a lot of purely-fun projects (I like to make things I “need” so I don’t end up with piles of clutter), but I decided to give a last-minute go to the Holiday Softie Awards.

I started last night, using mostly fabrics from my Denyse Schmidt fat quarter pack. (Let’s see, I’ve [...]

Patchwork Swap Sent + Giveaways

Okay, it is finally time to show off my Patchwork Swap project. Let me just say I had so much fun organizing and participating in this swap. I’m kind of sad to not be expecting any more mail at the moment. Look here to see what my partner Emily sent me.
Here is what I sent [...]

Sewing + Cooking

Today I decided to get down to business. I cleaned. I finished my quilt top. I put the laundry away. I saw my bag of “off to goodwill” clothes and rummaged through it. I have 4 or 5 tops– the same exact top, but different colors and stripes– that are just too short from all [...]

My second knit hat!

Last night I started my second knitting class, which was knitting in the round. Very simple!  I don’t know why I waited this long to knit, but I am so excited about the stretchiness and non-bulkiness. And changing colors is so easy! It’s fun to be figuring things out again. Hooray. I always make a [...]

Moose Cake

This weekend we cooked dinner with some friends, so I made a pumpkin chocolate cake to bring along. My original plan was to decorate the cake to look like a pumpkin face, but I mixed the orange frosting first and forgot about yellow. Plus, it looked extra peachy. So I made the impromptu decision to [...]

Friday Decompression + Shop Update

This week has left me feeling tired, tired, tired. Working in the afternoons does this weird thing where I’m constantly thinking of how I have to go to work, and therefore don’t get a lot done. There has been lots of knitting torn out to be crocheted, and vice versa. But, I think some fun [...]

I can knit! + Anna Schuleit

I admit it: for the longest time, I thought that I would crochet everything. Knitting didn’t appeal to me: all of that swatching, counting, making sure things fit. But when I saw some beginner knitting classes at the local yarn shop, I decided it was time. After all, they were only $15/class. I knit this [...]

Patchwork Swap Received!

I came home to the telltale sign of fun mail: the key in the mailbox. Which means, you get to open the bigger box! (Damn, I love not having to walk a mile to the post office to retrieve packages). I was super excited to open my box because I knew it was from my [...]

Whoooo’s in the Halloween spirit?

Sorry, I had to.
I finished my halloween garland today. It was a relatively simple project idea formed  while I was in the Martha Stewart Crafts section of Michael’s. I first saw the owl stamp on someone’s blog (can’t remember where, but they recieved it in a swap). I walked all the way around Michael’s with [...]
