crafty goodness is now for sale!
I'm announcing the grand opening of my etsy store. I'll be selling homemade blockprinted cards, quilted paper cards, journals and bath salts. Hopefully more fun treats to come. Please go and and take a look-see:
Also, Elliott, my husband has decided to sell his amazing spice blends in his own etsy store. I've been lucky enough to try them all. They really make everything taste better. No really. They do. You can find his store at:
And if that isn't enough excitement for you all, I finished a sweater. I know, I know I haven't blogged about it, but it's a store sample for WEBS and I was racing to get it done in time. My friend Alicia kindly offered to model it as it's a bit too small for me. See what you think.
Pattern: #103 Portland sweater from WEBS
Size: smallest 35" bust
Yarn: Valley Yarns Rainbow / color #26 Brick / 8 balls
Gauge: 6 stitches = 1 inch
Started: June 22
Finished: July 12
Notes: This is a pretty easy and somewhat mindless knit, which is great for much movie watching. I would recommend blocking the sleeves in shape (stretching out the bottom half ) before you pick up the stitches for the main body.
In other late breaking news, Elliott sent me a photo today of my Gymnocalycium catcus with its first flower! I couldn't be prouder!
