I have two new patterns for you this month, and both feature hedgehogs! I made the larger one using the 16 inch pillow size that I typically do. However, when I got done, I decided to make a smaller one as a toy. I AM IN LOVE! I plan to make more of these in difference sizes and colors. I'm also thinking about taking some of my other pillow patterns and making toy patters for them too.
Both patterns are available on this site, Ravelry, and Etsy.
Hubby has been busy! He installed the flooring this week. The next step will be to sand it down and apply clear coat, which will really bring out the character. It will be one of the last things that gets done, but for now I am trilled.
Hubby also installed most of the insulation. It took three truckloads full, but it will be worth it to keep me comfortable - especially since I plan to spend so much time in here!
There's a little more to do for the insulation. Hubby wanted a break so he could try out the new flooring nail gun. That man loves his power tools!
Next up will be either to get the electrical going or to install the drywall and slat wall. It will depend on what hubby feels like tackling next. I'm going with the flow and letting him decide.
YAY! SHE SHED!
Now that Zoe is well - and the vet bills are behind us - the time has come to begin shopping for the she shed again. What you see above is one batch of insulation. Sexy, eh?
On a brighter note I did pick up three light fixtures (okay, okay, chandeliers). What do you think? There is one big one for the center and the two smaller ones for the ends. I still need to shop for a porch light.
Hubby has already stared on the install of the insulation, so more progress pics soon!
WOO HOO! I finished another pattern! This is a variation of the very popular Circle Shrug, but utilizes squares instead. I also had fun using three different colorways of #FridayNightFibers and am very pleased with the results.
Like the Circles Shrug, this works up quickly. You can easily change up the layout and add more squares to create a longer scarf, shawl, or even a garment.
As always, the pattern is $5.00 and is available on this site, Ravelry, and Etsy.
I have a co-worker that is expecting this year. When she shared she was planning to have a jungle-themed nursery, I knew I had to make a monkey. Of course, we all could use a good monkey, so this was doubly perfect.
I searched for a pattern for a few days and landed on this one by LovelyBabyGift. You can find the paid pattern on both Etsy and Ravelry.
I worked on this for a few hours for about a week. It was very simple and the instructions were clear. I think I need to make this again in a few more colors.
2019 was our first time at #DFWFiberFest as a vendor. I've been attending (and purchasing) for years, but this year I decided to give it a go as a vendor. It was WONDERFUL! Not only did I get to drool over amazing yarns, get inspired by tons of projects and samples, get overwhelmed by all the bag choices; I also got to talk to a lot of amazing people throughout the three day show. There's nothing better than getting a bunch of excited, creative energy in the same place at the same time.
The vendors at this show are amazing too. I've done shows before where no one hardly speaks to each other, so I kind of stand out as the goofy lady. That was not the case at this show. It was so inviting and everyone was so willing to help each other. In fact, another vendor stopped by my booth and recommended I put all my yarn together as it would pull more people in. I did as she suggested, and it worked! This also gave me more space to hang up the samples that friends of mine made. Here are pictures of what I changed.
I plan to make some more modifications for the next show (East Texas Fiber Festival in November!), to make it even better. Of course, there will be MORE YARN!
Oh, and I must share what I bought! I did TRY to be good.
