Queue Challenge: February Update

This month has been better and still somehow worse than last… Higher highs and lower lows, I suppose. My crafting has reflected that, too. I’ve worked on a lot of projects over the course of this month, and I don’t have a lot to show for it. My current completed queue number is… 6. That’s […]

Year of Stitch: February Update

I’d say I’m still trucking along on this challenge, but that would be an understatement. I want to embroider everything now. I’m shirking my other deadline projects for these… But at least I’m happy! Look at how this turned out!! I will say, the finishing was a bit of an odyssey. I’ll start at the […]

Tampa Fresh Foods

My friend Lauren didn’t stop with her fantastic fiber arts tour of Tampa with Stash. Oh no. She also took me to see the TikTok-famous, as-seen-on-TV Tampa Fresh Foods! This art installation was made by British artist Lucy Sparrow and her team. It’s a whole grocery store handmade entirely with felt. It’s so wild. I […]

Stash Tampa

I will never forget my first trip into a local yarn shop. The sheer awe of the yarn and the samples while getting to talk with truly like-minded people. Over the years, that glitter has worn away, and I thought I would probably never feel that way walking into another yarn shop. However, I did […]

Can I Have a Wordle?

Most of you know my day job is in marketing with an emphasis on social media. You would also know that I have a finger on the pulse of trends, but the older I get, the less inclined I am to participate, at least on my individual channels. I thought that would be the case […]

A Decade of Yarn: 2021

I’m so, so glad that I have reached this milestone. When I started my Decade in Yarn project, I was so good about making my swatches for each project as I went. Yes, I was home and had nothing better to do, but still. I’ve said a few times that I lost a lot of […]

Art Yarn Wreath

I mentioned that one of my goals this year was to make some crafty wreaths. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for years, because seasonal stuff brings me a lot of joy. With my new place, this seemed like the year to do it! Working on Addie’s Hat, with the handspun single and flowers spun […]

Nina Chicago

During my blog hiatus, I made a trip to Chicago to visit my sister. Still a little nerve-wracking as we continue to muddle through this pandemic, but now that no one got sick, I’m really happy we went. One of the reasons I’m so happy about the trip was I got to partake once again […]
