Potato Printing and Crochet Roundup

Last week I got together with my friend (and her new, 3 week old baby!) to do some potato printing. She saw the technique while she was looking through my copy of Kayte Terry’s Complete Embellishing, so we rounded up some supplies and had some fun. I forgot to take pics while I was at [...]

Of the Cloth

Despite my extreme interest in crocheting lately (which, I predict, will cease and desist once I have to work up the sample for the class I am teaching), I have also been doing some sewing lately.

This weekend I worked on more scraps for the scrap quilt. It’s so colorful, and I’m pleased so far. I [...]

The Stash Ends Here.

I’m still un-burying myself from all of my stuff. I have gotten rid of so many things. I love the new apartment, but I’ve had to totally rethink the storage. One of the things that was nagging me as I was trying to navigate my chair from the sewing table to the computer was my [...]


Note to Ann: Don’t read this post if you don’t want your package to be a surprise (it should get there by Wednesday).
There’s nothing like having all of my sewing and crafting stuff packed up to inspire me! Hah. We started moving stuff to the new place today, and I feel so good about it [...]

Easy Peasy Project: Embellished Flip Flops

Check out these cute flip flops I designed with a complete tutorial over at Craft Stylish. They are really easy to make-you only have to know how to single crochet (and even if you don’t, I’m sure you can figure it out). I get a simple joy out of wearing them around, and the silk yarn [...]

Feels Sew Good

Sorry, I couldn’t resist the cheesy pun. Lately I’ve been consumed by about a zillion creative-but-not-for-me projects and to be honest, it makes me a little crazy. I’m always thinking, “Wow, this is a fun project. How come I don’t have time to sit down and make this for myself anymore?” So this weekend I [...]

Blatant Self Promotion Friday

Lest you think I’m sitting here idly, here are two of my recently published sewing projects. I actually made these back in January (I think) when I was just dreaming of summer. Unfortunately I am still dreaming because it has been rainy all week– so much so that all of the bread is molding. Whine.

Both [...]

Go Outside!

Today was such a gorgeous day outside that we had to go for a little drive, and then (after the sad Spurs game) a hike.

Here’s Paul on the trail. Of course I picked the super easy one since I have basically been hibernating all winter, and I was panting nonetheless. It’s the elevation….yes…. I’m still [...]

Sunday Sewing

I made it back from New York, and I think I’ve recovered from jet lag. I had a good time, but honestly, I was quite ready to leave.  Something about the sheer  number of people and rushing and dirt and smells made me a little bit insane (which is what happened when I realized it [...]

New Purse

I have been looking for a new purse for a long time. Since I’m not leaving the house all that much, I don’t need the gigantic one I had whenI lived in NYC (you know, with an umbrella, kleenex, spare book, water bottle,  anything I might need in the span of a day). I’m really picky [...]
