How to Sew a Quilted Puffy Scarf- DIY Sewing Tutorial from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello Makers, 

Are you staying warm? With Minnesota reaching well into the negative degrees Fahrenheit, having to go outside is chilling to the bone. Anytime it's winter, I always take the opportunity to use Art Gallery Fabrics substrates, because they are just the best to sew with. While I was looking through my fabric stash, I saw these lovely rayon prints in “Manhattan’s Foliage” by Bari J., “Honey”, and “Soleil Stripes” that I had to use! I was inspired by all the puffy accessories being created that I thought it would be a great idea to create my ...

Roving, Roving, Roving, and wait, More Roving from Eric the Quilter

It’s been a busy week! I’m repainting the photo studio at work, and making roving in my free time. I’ve got so many projects in my head, it’s hard to find the time and upper body strength to keep up. Turning my carder for hours is quite the arm workout. (I’ve even been trying to make sure I switch arms, so one doesn’t get more ripped than the other.) Needless to say… my back is killing me! I can live with that, but now I have a sty on my left eye… and that ...

How I’ve Kept My Sanity: Crafting Through Misdiagnosis… (Part 3.5) from Eric the Quilter

After posting Part 3 of the Toxic Medicine series, I posted some of the scarves I’ve been working on, but forgot to post the yarn I spun! So we’ll call this “Part 3.5”. I love spinning yarn, but holy heck is it time consuming. I did not know that when I started spinning, but it is rather easy to start and stop, so I can always walk away and come back to it later. Perhaps later this week, I’ll post some of the art roving I have waiting in the wings for future felting or spinning ...

How I’ve Kept My Sanity: Crafting Through Misdiagnosis… (Part 3) from Eric the Quilter

I finally posted Part 3 of the Toxic Medicine series, so I thought I would show you guys what I have been working on. My strength is coming back, but I get worn out so easily. I’m used to carrying people, not because it is part of my job description, but for funsies. Now I get tired carrying a couple 50 lb. boxes yarn around the building at work. So, no large exhausting projects for me, but nuno felting scarves is my new passion. I can finish one in a day, and I only work up a mild sweat ...

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!

Follow the jump for more pictures of the scarves and ...
