This week was Spring Break and all productivity was tossed out the window. The weather was beautiful, so I guess if you had to toss something outside, at least it was warm and sunny.
Most of our days were spent hanging out with good friends for park dates, thrifting dates and lunch dates. My daughter […]
I can’t believe a week has gone by since my last post. I don’t have much to show for it. A lot of projects are stalled for one thing or another.
The Cars shirt was a thrifty find. My daughter’s fabric bag for her matchbox cars is too small. When […]
I am crazy. I normally have no problem taking a seam ripper to anything. I cut up stuff and turn it into something new all the time.
Except for this lunch bag.
It fits a little too snug in my daughter’s backpack. Her teacher mentioned a bigger backpack or smaller lunch […]
Thank you: for all of the sweet comments here and on facebook about my Farmers’ Market tote in Green Craft. I’m still super excited about it.
Odds + Ends: Last week I had a lot of freelance work, so there’s not much to report on the crafty front today. Too many projects started and […]
Yesterday I made some small progress on my to do list.
removed the sleeves and collar from my shirt pinned and sketched a (rough) line for the new side seam chose some sock yarn out of my stash
Blog posts might be light this week, but I’m going to do […]
My parents are visiting this week. Usually when they are here I try to tackle a big project. The last one was a major destash and cleanup. Since then I went on a little spring cleaning binge. There isn’t a lot house-related stuff I need to do while my daughter has two super-fun playmates. […]
I’ve also been kicking it into high gear for the holidays. Unfortunately, that means it’s hard to show you work-in-progress pictures. I’ve knitted quite a few gifts over the past year and spent yesterday weaving in ends, soaking them in wool wash and blocking.
I’m also trying to play catch-up for Advent. Two summers […]
Have you read Amanda Soule’s new book Handmade Home? I love all of her projects, but the Beach Blanket to Go really got my attention. I’m going to a beach wedding in October and have been wondering what to make for a gift. I think this will be perfect! I’m […]
This yarn has been sitting in my stash for over a year waiting for the right project. I have six balls total and got them all for $5 at a garage sale. When they passed the burn test for wool, I was even more excited! I was thinking of making a blanket […]
We have a sisal rug as a door mat that we bought from Restoration Hardware more than 10 years ago. I love the look of sisal, but it’s a little expensive. I thought it would be easy to reproduce by knitting with sisal. I got a ball of it at the hardware store a few […]
