• Playing with the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool

    As I mentioned on Friday, I got suckered by a half price offer – an offer, apparently, I couldn’t refuse, and even though in my head, I’m walking back the tools, the products, the photos, I bought the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool.   For those of you who have never seen this product, […]

  • Project Life Redux

    Yesterday, I referred to ye ol’ blog as a patiently waiting home for my stories. I’ve been thinking about stories a lot lately, the who, what, where, when, why and how of them, because I’m just finishing up Ali Edwards’ class, Storytelling with Project Life. Ali’s basic philosophy is fill your pockets, create homes for […]

  • Yearly Make-Over

    Every year, I do a little blog makeover, and every year, I think that this new container is going to miraculously make me a better, more consistent blogger. Every year, I’m wrong.  But, the blog feels fresher, and remains an ever patiently waiting home for my stories. January and February were honestly pretty crappy around here […]

  • Bring on 2016! My Planner System is Ready to Go!

      Hello my friends! It’s been awhile, I know, but I’ve just been prepping for back to back trials since the end of October.   Two ended up pleading, and one went to trial.   I have one more to go in January, and then it’ll be easy peasy sailing for awhile. I’ve been a total knitting machine, […]

  • Yarning Along the Stephen West Way

    I have jumped on the Stephen West bandwagon, and I’m riding high on the #WestKnitsKal2015 knit-a-long, The Doodler! As I mentioned, I watched Stephen’s class on Craftsy while doing the Craftsy binge, and while I’m still raising an eyebrow (or two) at some of his designs, I’m trying to embrace his wild and free aesthetic. […]

  • Yarn Along – Post Traumatic Knit Disorder Cured!

    So, as I mentioned on Monday, I’ve been doing some serious Craftsy binging as a result of a crazy $10/all you can watch month of October.  So much so, that I even started to feel guilty that I was watching too much . . . but then I got an email from Craftsy reminding me […]

  • Thread Art Project Done!

    And, she’s done! I thought there was a gigantic possibility that I was going to mess it all up once I tried to color her in, but I think it went ok. So, what to do with her. I could cut her out, bind her, and hang her on the wall. Or, I could make […]

  • Craftsy on Steroids – Binge or Bust

    In the beginning of October, Craftsy ran a $10/all you can watch for the month of October promotion.  I didn’t get an email about it, and I didn’t see an ad for it, but someone posted about it in the Crafty Gemini Facebook group, and I ran, tripping to jump on that Craftsy train.  I’m thinking that […]

  • One Super Girl and One . . . Something Girl

    So, this weekend, I went back to the books – or at least one book, We Make Dolls, an anthology of dollmaking edited by Jenny Doh.  This time around, I made a super cool character doll by Nichol Brinkman of Pink Cheeks Studios.  Nichol has three patterns in We Make Dolls, Mr. Strong, Mr. Grumpy […]

  • Cloth and Clay Doll done!

    And, here’s where we left poor Dolly – stuck in a bottle while I fought with the Gunnislake Pullover. Since she was still hanging out in the bottle, I did clean her eyes up a bit, although there’s no getting around the fact that one eye is more smooshy than the other eye. But, no matter […]
