New threads added 08.12.2011

As part of moving to my new house, and the Moving Sale in my Etsy shop, I’m going through my boxes of handspun thread and listing the ones that haven’t made it over to Etsy yet – yesterday I added 8 new Painted Threads colorways:


Check back often – there’s more where these came from!

Treasury Friday: Home Sweet Home Crafts Edition

As you might know, I am moving to a new city in just a few weeks. I thought it would be great fun to decorate the new house with a new “Home Sweet Home” project – which one is your favorite?

Also, have you heard about the Moving Sale? 15% off in my Etsy and Zibbet shops with coupon code “MovingSale” until August 26th! I’d much rather pack up thread into envelopes and mail it to you than pack it up in a moving box, so shop away! 🙂

WIP Wednesday: It will be a scarf someday edition

Happy Wednesday! My life has become significantly more interesting lately, as I’m going to be moving at the end of the month, but I’m still chugging away on projects while I pack (or, really, while I “supervise” David packing – I’m such an awful mover!).

Inchies at The Daily Inchie

My favorite inchie over the past week is definitely my Deathly Hallows inchie:

David and I finally went to see Part 2 on Saturday – what an awesome movie! I loved the way Poppy Seed stitched up on this one.

Other Projects – Ongoing

Sheep Mandala:

I think I’m stalling out on this one because it’s fairly repetative, and I am a total new-junkie. I know it’s going to look adorable when it’s done, though, so I will persevere!

David’s Scarf:

Finished the set-up row and started on the first real row of the ubiquitous Entrelac Scarf, except I’m using lace weight merino, size 0 needles, and 9 repeats instead of 3. But, seriously, it will be a scarf someday! 🙂

Blackbird Designs Stocking Series: Didn’t work on this recently.

Other Projects – New

Subversive Cross Stitch: Cross Bitch

Grabbed a copy of the Subversive Cross Stitch book while I was in Vancouver a few weeks ago for Sock Summit, and decided I didn’t want to wait for one of my current projects to be finished before I started this one (rekeyed for some of my handspun threads, Rustic, Calypso, and Fertility). I’ll have a review of the book in the next week or so, but in the meantime here’s my short summary: I love this book! 🙂

What have you been working on this week? Leave a comment below and point us to your blog, flickr, tumblr post, or anywhere else you are showing off your latest creations. Can’t wait to see them!!

Happy Stitching!

Aside

Just a quick note to say there won’t be an official WIP Wednesday post this week, because I am going crazy trying to do my real job and plan/pack for Sock Summit. But I don’t want to leave you completely empty-handed, so head over to Daily Inchie to see all my recent inchies, including Wheaton’s Law Logo Needlepoint Inchie from yesterday

I’d still love to see what you’ve been working on this week, though, so leave a comment, will ya? 🙂

No WIP Wednesday this week
