Show and Tell

Cupcake Fibers BFL/Silk
This needed to be immortalized. i can't believe i fit all 6oz on one bobbin. it's a new year's miracle. it's still on the bobbin right now because i'm not excited about the prospect of skeining that much yarn at once. so i have no clue on yardage at the moment.
Ellie wants you to pay attention to her and don't mind the messiness that is our dining room my sewing table.
mini-quilt wall
after almost 2.5 years, we've decided to start making it seem like we actually live in the house that we own. so we Spicy painted the living room walls gray and i finally got around to hanging up some of my mini-quilts. i just love looking at this wall. i would be remiss if i did not point out that the little sliver of wood on the right is the original trim, completely stripped of paint and sanded down to its natural glory. one day i'll get some proper pictures of the living room and we can all ooh and ahh at the workmanship that Spicy has put into it. btw, notice how the kona medium gray binding on the warm/cool HST quilt perfectly blends with the color of the walls. this was not an accident.
Country Socks modeled
finally, it is time to bid a fond farewell to Spicy's very first pair of handknit socks. Since they were the first pair, he wore them the most often so they were constantly getting holes. They've been through countless repairs and i just can't bear to keep fixing them anymore. Spicy was ultra-sad about it, but i think they had a great run. i'm working on a pair of replacement socks now.

someone in my office is wearing stinky strong perfume. it's going to be a long day.


  1. oh, how i love to see that potty-mouthed miniquilt hanging out in view! so lovely.

  2. Ugh, stinky perfume is the worst. Yay for your wall of glory! It's so awesome, and I do totally love that potty-mouthed quilt. They are all so happy! I'm sad for Spicy's socks. :/

  3. Love your wall! 
    We get stinky cologne at my office.  On the older attorneys.  And only them...not sure if they've just lost their sense of smell over the years or what.

  4. Wow, so much awesomeness!  My favorite thing?  The fuck off quilt.  Genius.  Pure genius.

  5. it warms the cockles of my heart to see that fuck off on your wall!  :)  love it. 
    your spinning intrigues me so much, i wish i could do it, actually i just wish i knew anything about yarn.
