Weekend of Fiber Goodness

No, no, I’m not talking bran here.  I’m talking wool, in various forms. I was fortunate to have a long weekend, meaning I had Monday off for Columbus Day.  It was fantastic.  First, most of what was stressing me out?  I got done by Sunday morning.  I had a lot of time then to do […]

Look, Ma, I’m tatting!

Back in March, my friend Amanda lent me a tatting shuttle and some crochet thread after she had shown me tatting.  Amanda did a demonstration on how to do it, and I thought it looked pretty. A few nights after that, I tried to teach myself.  And I tried.  I just couldn’t do it.  I […]

Lancaster Creative Reuse

The Kutztown Folk Festival

Living in the heart of PA Dutch country has some benefits.  Besides our starchy foods, funny “Dutchy” sayings, and farming culture, southeast Pennsylvania has a great crafting heritage.  At the heart of the heritage is the Kutztown Folk Festival in Kutztown, PA.  The festival itself started on June 30, when I went, and runs to […]

Crafting Overload Weekend

I say that like it’s a bad thing, but it really isn’t.  I had a busy crafting weekend, and I’m going to tell you all about it throughout the week.  Ok, I’ll tell you a little bit.  On Saturday, I found myself awake at 4am.  I tried to fall back asleep for an hour, but […]

Parachute Cord Crafting

I had gone into a local crafting store from some beading supplies, and found a panel display for parachute cord crafting, and thought, why not?  Sam had been talking about it and to find it readily available at my local A. C. Moore was just a plus.  I bought a kit that included some project […]
