You’re not seeing things.

There are so many cobwebs and so much dust on this blog that I might need an allergy pill before I’m done. Yikes.
Blogs are dead they say, but eff those people (I might be one of them). I still have a need to document my sewing though and there’s no Ravelry for quilting and I quit my day job and I just reopened the shop, and I’ve been doing heaps of photoshoots so here I am. Time to tidy up, update themes, fix broken links and all that. 
So, uh. Hi!

called up to the show

Summer just keeps rolling in, eh?
I’ve been keeping busy down in our basement where it’s 10 degrees cooler than upstairs. In fact, sometimes it’s so cold down here that I have to put extra layers on. The temperature difference is tough in the winter, but right now it is heaven.

I’ve been working on a few projects shop-wise. First on the agenda is Sock Summit in Portland, Oregon. It’s fewer than 3 weeks away! (Gulp!) I’ve been bundling and tagging inventory to ship to the conference at the end of the …

come ON, spring

I have so many things in the works behind the scenes. I still have 5 knitting FOs to blog. I upgraded my camera. I bought a knitting machine. I changed the way I’m approaching sewing for the shop. I’m waiting on a giant shipment of zippers. I have tutorials half written. I just seem to be spinning my wheels a little. I’m pretty sure I’m lagging behind because it’s March and it’s Spring. AND IT EFFING SNOWED YESTERDAY. Seriously. I’m over Winter, officially.

Let’s see if we can’t shove off the …

For reals, it’s so bananapants busy around here! Between shop stuff, book stuff and photography stuff, I swear I haven’t had five minutes to finish any of the 10 million blog posts that are sitting in the draft folder. So how about a random Monday list? I like it!

If you’re in the Philadelphia area, Stitchy and I are taking the Knitting It Old School trunk show on the road! We’ll be signing books at Rosie’s Yarn Cellar on Saturday, February 12th from 2pm onward. Come on by and say hello! …

eye candy Friday, rocketing towards the holidays edition

It’s not like I do a tonne to prepare for the holidays around here. There’s the usual tree, some decorations and whatnot, but that’s about it. Well, that and humiliating the cats a little bit.  All the same, it’s been pretty hectic round these parts so I’m going to take a little time off until the end of December. In the meantime, pour yourself a drink and enjoy a couple wintry holiday-ish (or not) photos.

Oh! And! Today is the last day to order stuff from the shop until after …

Summer really sucks wind for shop productivity, but even doubly so when you’re preparing for a book to come out. Now that it’s on the shelves I can get back to the sewing machine and start cranking stuff out again. Feels good!

First off the press are these new Biggie Box Bags. They’re almost three times as big as my usual box bag size and I’m loving them. They’re HUGE. You can fit a whole bag of Rowan Felted Tweed in with no problem. (I may have augmented the stash this …

it’s handmade, not homemade

A few weeks ago Bestitched mentioned an exchange she had with a coworker about a handknit skirt she was wearing. The coworker sneered something along the lines of, “aren’t you just the sweetest in your homemade clothes.”

Or is it stashed down?

At any rate, Stashdown 2010 was very very successful. Almost the entire stash of shop fabrics has been cut into pieces.
