Yesterday when I told you this pattern was addicting, I really meant it. I just finished one for myself today, which makes six total! (I’ll spare you the sixth picture.) I think I am finished for awhile — need to get back into a granny square groove.
I chose the colors because […]
Do these look familiar? I posted a sneak peak a few weeks ago. I made these washcloths for my daughter’s teachers, added a bar of soap and put them in a little fabric drawstring bag. Actually, I made a lot more than these. This pattern is addicting!

In my creative space today I’m finishing up the details on a few gifts.
First up is this little teddy bear for my friend Lisa, who is expecting a baby any day now. Lisa is all about cute crochet stuffies, so I figured an amigurumi bear would be perfect.
Another internationally-inspired blog post! I’ve had this fabric for awhile and can’t believe I neglected to share it with you.
A few months ago, my father-in-law went to India and asked if I wanted anything. I told him a little bit of fabric — something colorful — if it wasn’t any trouble. (Trips back […]
I love looking at photos of Japanese craft books online, but I’ve never really felt compelled to buy one. Then I got sick, slowed on the crafting front and spent way too much time on ebay. (I’m feeling MUCH better, by the way. Thank you for all of the well wishes!)

I’m still feeling a bit under the weather, but I managed to play around with my drop spindle for awhile today. This ball of yarn comes straight off the sweater. I’m trying to take it from lightweight to worsted. So far, not so bad. I’m kind of making this up as I […]
My creative space is filled with other creative folks today. I woke up feeling a little under the weather (ok, a lot under the weather) and decided to take it easy. I spent the day curled up with this blanket, reading my copy of Craft Corps, and working on
Thank you everyone for the sweet comments on my giveaway tote. I’ve been overwhelmed by your responses! They’ve inspired me to make some more totes from my upholstery stash. Last night I put together color combinations for three more bags. Now, if I can only find the time to sew them up!
I can’t believe it. My “baby” is almost finished her first year of preschool. How did that happen so fast? Last week they had an ice cream party at the park for all of the kids and their families.
It was nice for me to chat with some of the moms […]
