Some Halloween Fun…

After I created my snowman phone carrier a few weeks ago, I couldn't help but think about what I could make for the interim period between the warm, summer days that we've left behind here in MT and the Christmas season that--aside from me--no one wants to be reminded of quite yet. 😉 I browsed… Continue reading Some Halloween Fun…

A Little Knit of This and a Little Knit of That

But first, an update! I can now share two more contest results with you: I didn’t win. 😛 After I have a chance to read over my entry for the Guideposts' short story contest and retweak some things (cuz that’s what writers love to do—tweak, tweak, and more tweak), I’ll share it here. A part… Continue reading A Little Knit of This and a Little Knit of That

Tinsel à la Phone Case

Last week I shared some of the things I worked on this summer when I had limited writing time. But I saved the best for last. Well, best in my opinion. 😉 If you’ve followed me for a while (or know me in person), then you've come to realize I love Christmas. Which is part… Continue reading Tinsel à la Phone Case

It’s a Knit World After All…

This summer my family and I are headed to Walt Disney World in Florida. In honor of Mickey Mouse, I thought I would knit and felt a phone case in his colors. I sent a picture of it to my niece before I’d completely finished knitting it and she liked it so much, I decided… Continue reading It’s a Knit World After All…

I’m sure some of you might be wondering if I’m ever going to follow-up with a post about the felted bag I had worked on over the summer. Well…I finished it! Yay! After I completed the needle-felting process a few months ago, the bag sat in a corner of my bedroom as life sped up… Continue reading Finish the Ravenna Satchel: check!

Have bag. Will travel. Almost.

I’m on vacation for the next few weeks. When you think of the word “vacation,” what first springs to mind? Maybe relaxation. A time to unwind. A yummy drink in one hand and a good book in the other. Or maybe it means going to new places, seeing new sights, doing something different and fun… Continue reading Have bag. Will travel. Almost.

Summer Knitting…

About six months ago, I realized I could use a new travel bag—you know, something to bring on a flight or the occasional overnight trip—but I wanted to knit one for myself rather than buy one. So once again I visited Ravelry.com (love that site!) and I stumbled upon the Ravenna Satchel by Marta McCall.… Continue reading Summer Knitting…

“Needle” little felt in your life?

In a previous post, I mentioned how much I’ve enjoyed the process of felting, but even though I have a running list of projects I’d like to attempt in the future, the concept itself recently began to lose its luster. And that’s when I remembered the embellishing power of needle felting! Almost six years ago… Continue reading “Needle” little felt in your life?
