Crafting is infectious. Spread the disease, visit my etsy store!

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

I've been a busy bee.

I finally found the time to list something on Etsy. These are actually store samples from a class I was teaching, but they're back in-house now so they need a new owner.

This is what they looked like before they were mounted:


The bottom two, since I needed samples made of materials that could be bought in the store.

In other embroidery news...


Starting the biscornu...


Working on the winter flour sack towels, too.


Also got some books in from The two in the front were under a dollar each. The one in the back is hard to see, but here's a link:

So far, it's a fairly nice book.

I'm also surfing these for holiday gift ideas:


I LOVE PieceWork magazine. I used to get it years ago, then started getting it again this year. If you want more information on PieceWork, you can click here. They've got tons of great articles and projects for people who take needlework, knit, crochet, etc. to ridiculous levels ;)

Speaking of taking things to ridiculous levels:


I'm now learning to knit 2 socks at once toe up on one circular needle. I've never knitted a sock toe up, or on a circular, much less two at once.

Trust me, I do this all the time.

Oh, I also published a couple craft-related articles. One's a local article because one of our local JoAnn's superstores is closing. Another of our local JoAnn's stores closed earlier this year. The other one is about upcoming sales on classes at Open House events at my JoAnn's and other JoAnn's that have a Creative University. If you want to get some classes 50% off, I'd suggest calling your local JoAnn's to see if they have a Creative University and whether they'll be running the promotion.
