since last i posted...

a shit-ton of xmas gifts were finished, none of which are photographed due to my laziness and lack of sunlight. Gifts include but are not limited to, a quilted oven mitt, some dishcloths, sewn box bags, a hat, a pair of socks, a pincushion, some change purses, with even more to come.

gifts were received from my mom, a trio of books from amazon: Last Minute Quilted + Patchwork Gifts, Knitting from the Top, and the Handy Book of Patterns. my mom rocks.

a new knitty came out. i made quant from some of my navajo plied handspun. i heart it. now i can wear ponytails and my ears remain toasty.

a serger was broken. well, i don't think it's broken exactly, but it currently doesn't serge. i'm going to try rethreading the whole thing, and if it doesn't work, off to the sewing machine dealer it goes.

fiber was dyed with wiltons. some of it went well, but some of it looks like crap. i had a lot of trouble with the brown separating to an awful pink orangey shade. i should really invest in some acid dyes.

i feel like there's more, but i'm getting a headache trying to remember it all. just assume that i'm dead until further notice. maybe i'll at least get a few spare moments to blog the kitty photos Spicy and i took of Ellie wearing his hoodie. respeck.

  1. Bummer about the serger.

    Isn't that Last Minute Quilted Gifts book awesome? I am so in love with the color wheel wall hanging. Someday...
