Signs of Craft (+ A Sale!)

Lately I’ve been getting back into sewing and embroidery. I still get hung up on crochet, thinking I need to write a pattern if I want to start something, since I did that for so long, so I’m keeping my projects simple for now.

Last weekend I made a rope/clothesline basket for our bathroom. You can [...]

We Got Married!

Two weeks ago, Paul and I got married (finally)! It was a wonderful, small ceremony & it was the day full of love that everyone said it would be. To keep it manageable and meaningful,  we limited our guest list to about 50 people and did a lot of DIYing with the help of our [...]

I Have A Lot of Scissors.

It’s true. I was attempting to  unearth my sewing machine this weekend and I could reach almost all of these pairs from one spot. And yet, I am always looking for a pair of scissors.

My favorites are as follows:
For Fabric: Clover Ultimate Shears EX-200 (green handles). These scissors are awesome–they are light, sharp, and accurate–the [...]

CraftStylish Roundup/Update

If you pop over to Craftstylish regularly, you might have noticed this post about Restyling Craftstylish.

I’m [...]

Sweater Ornaments and a Jasenn Update

What kind of ornaments are you making this year? I always like to do at least one set per year, and I usually participate in a swap.

I’ve participated in various ornament swaps over the years, with varying results. I wanted to dig in and really take the time to make some nice ornaments this year. [...]

Sukie Iron-On Pad Giveaway

I opened up my mailbox last week to find this really cool new product from Chronicle Books– it’s a pad of iron on transfers designed by Sukie. The pad contains all sorts of fun designs (some of which I will show you below)– animals, letters, buildings, trees, flowers, butterflies, and more. Of course I had [...]
