A piece for Smac, and other current events.


Just got this thread in this week. Ordered it from Sublime Stitching. It's Glow-in-the-dark. I'll probably be writing a review on it once I get some time to work with it. I'm disappointed in how quickly the glow fades, though.

Why am I too busy? Atop everything else, there's this:


It looks like Garden Party...but there's way too much thread there. It's going to be much bigger than Garden Party, and completely reworked on the inside. This will be going with Valdani to London and Paris for some shows they'll be attending. I just have to stitch it up in time, which will be a task and a half. There will be pictures along the way, I'm sure.

In other news, I wrote a couple of articles that got published today. This one is on DIY 4th of July party invitations, and this one is about local knitting and craft events at my public library. If you're local, you might want to check them out. Especially the craft swap. Clear out the stash you won't use and make way for new!

I have some other stuff in various stages of completion as well. The mug warmer is almost done, I'm drafting a sugar skull pattern for embroidering on a bag, and I'd like to finish one of my custom orders this weekend or early next week.

I'm teaching quilting all weekend, and thankful to have the opportunity in this economy. I'm also hosting a stitch and bitch on Saturday night, so my weekend is going to be slightly crazy.

Obviously, this is the way I prefer it ;) Anyone else have crafty plans this weekend or should I just die of embarrassment now?

Congrats on your articles being published! Have fun with the glow-in-the-dark thread! I guess Jeff from Bridge City Tatting has tatted with glow in the dark thread and it's kinda fun. I've been wanting to get some for fun.

I wonder where he got the thread. This comes in 5 yard spools per color. Hmmmmm...
