love me some etsy

See, it's like this: I sell yarn (on sale). Hand-dyed and lovely. We are clearing it out on Etsy. Look us up at There is a link from there.

People like good prices, so they are buying the yarn. Thank you, people.

When they buy it, they pay (imagine that!). I turn that money around on - you guessed it! - fabric. It's a circle of love more than it is the circle of life.

But first, let me apologize for the lack of projects. I have completed a couple in the last short while, but they are gifts and the recipients might read this blog, so I just can't risk it.

These were also a gift, but this recipient isn't likely to read this blog.

They are alien VW hotpads. They came together in an evening and were pretty fun.

Oh, right, back to the fabric. So I got all this stuff this week.

Stacks of coordinated fat quarters REALLY make me happy. Like, really.

Crap. I just lost half my post. It was good. Now it won't be as good. Sorry 'bout that.

I don't think I showed you the gifty placemats either. They're for a man friend who really likes cats:

Okay, so by the end of the month, I ought to have completed the BatQuilt, and a flannelette baby quilt for my future nephew. No promises. Fingers crossed.

Random amigurumi:

Happy crafting!

a bit of catch-up

I've slain the dragon so other projects are now possible:

That was scary. That's my second lap quilt there. All the other quilty stuff I've done is a table runner, stroller quilt, placemats, a couple V-dub alien hotpads, and that's about it. Yes, I jumped straight into a bargello. Crazy.

Now I'm moving back to the batman / superhero quilt, which was featured in an earlier post. This morning I was chain-stitching squares together to get the spirals started. Fun!

I did a 'cut the scrap' workshop yesterday. I learned A TON. For reals. I don't have much in the way of scraps, so I bought a coordinated scrap pack and worked with that:

I also made a name tag for someone else. She was a no-show and my name wasn't quite right, so I figured I'd do the one for the right-spelled name. And yes, I thought this was also a mistake because there is no José in the guild, but it's a woman's name, pronounced Yosie.

And now I'll be heading back to batman. Until next time......
