A quick hello…


…I have plans for more robust posts as the month progresses, but it’s a busy Friday and I’ve yet to go to work….so here’s a short post to keep going with NaBloPoMo.

A little tidbit – as I’ve geared up to return to sewing I’ve been starting to build a presence for myself at a fairly new site – basically a Ravelry for sewers – called My Sewing Circle. It’s still developing but it looks to be pretty useful if development continues. You might check it out! ^_-

Oh, and just for fun – how ’bout some music:


Blown Away

Take a look at this wonderful video!  I’d embed it here but WordPress is a bit lacking here:

Handmade Portraits: Kiva Ford from Etsy on Vimeo.

One of these days my oldest and I want to learn how to blow glass.  It would be amazing to be able to do it as well as Kiva Ford.

Via the Jafagirls Site: Knit Knot Tree II Needs Yarnbombing [NaBloPoMo]


Just a quickie today – running short on time, and I want to succeed at NaBloPoMo.  If you’re in the Yellow Springs, OH area – the JafaGirls are looking to yarn bomb the Knit Knot Tree – see here for more deets!

If you live in town or just want to visit please bring along your knitting or crochet piece and stitch it onto the tree.

Good luck to the JafaGirls!

Stitch ‘N Bitch: The Knitter’s Handbook


Anybody familiar with this one?  I crocheted and knitted a tiny bit when I was a kid – I was thinking about picking it back up, but I’d need a good book/website as a place to start.  This seems like a good one, but I’d be thrilled to hear opinions.

I absolutely love the URL for the website book series:knithappens.com
