In progress

Summer is in full swing and while fun, doesn’t always feel productive. Finishing things in the summer is tough but I feel I need to remind myself that I am making progress.

Hearing vs. Listening

I like to say that I love feedback. I love to hear when someone falls in love with a project bag I’ve made. Or when they tell me my Craftsy class improved their photography. Or that they are complimented on something they knit from one of my patterns. I LOVE that kind of feedback. Who doesn’t? We all like to hear the nice things. So when I say I love feedback, what I really mean is I love to hear the nice things. The not-so-nice things aren’t as lovable. I still appreciate negative feedback, but it takes me a few days to come around to it.

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 …

drive by posting

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 …
