How I’ve Kept My Sanity: Crafting Through Misdiagnosis… (Part 2) from Eric the Quilter

Nuno Felting!

Yes, Nuno Felting is so much fun! I started working on them when I got really sick from my negligent doctors, but now I am up and running with them! (My white blood cell count is now within normal range!!!!) They were so much fun to make, and it was nice, because when I was sick, it allowed me the chance to make something in stages, instead of all at once. I could felt it over 2 or 3 days, and it was a great experience! It’s not exactly the fastest thing in the world, but it ...

bits and pieces . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

Right off the bat, let me put your minds to rest . . . 
This got finished, so this could happen . . .
Whew!  All is right with the (her) world again!

It's been a busy week, at work and home.  For the last eight years, we've gone to see The Nutcracker ballet every Christmas season.  This year they didn't do the ballet (go figure).  So instead, I've been putting together something fun to take its place . . .
We'll have a full-blown tea party with all the trimmings, and then watch the ballet on DVD!!  (I've got several versions, of ...

blocking scarf from Making A Lather

While my hubby was in the hospital for back surgery in early March, I started a scarf to pass the waiting time. It was nearly done by the time we came home. It has taken me awhile to get it blocked. I am always surprised by how much better a knitted piece looks after it is blocked.


I had hand spun the yarn a year ago and finally had a use for it. I like to spin better than I like to knit. I found the pattern here.

rug class from Making A Lather

Day 2 of my hubby's back surgery recovery, and, I made a good start on a drop stitch scarf. I'm sure I have altered the pattern with a little boo boo here and there. It is really looking pretty good, considering I was interrupted every 20 minutes. And was bored easily.


I realized I haven't posted about a rug hooking class last week with a teacher from Noblesville that our group invited for a workshop. We are learning shading using her flower pattern. Our choices were purple or red. My kit is the red.


This is our ...

Brief Update from 120 Blocks

I’m still kicking but very slowly. I actually managed to get in a little sewing on Sunday. I zigzagged around a couple of flowers and leaves on Block 6 of Enchanted Garden. These appliqué blocks take quite a while to … Continue reading

I’m Teaching In 2 Weeks! from Eric the Quilter

img_20180111_150622521.jpg

I have two classes I’m teaching at The Weavers Guild of Minnesota in 2 weeks! I couldn’t be more excited!

One class is on how to make this lovely scarf, pictured above, and the other is how to spin fiber from reclaimed factory waste. I’m so excited! Everyone knows how much I love Minnesota, and it has been so long since I’ve taught an actual class. I’m a little nervous! I guess the hardest part will be making sure I pack everything! Wish me luck!
