No, it’s a cardigan¬†

  When my best friend and fellow Dumb and Dumber lover asked for some hoop art, it only seemed right to celebrate the movie we both hold so dear!

Good Vibes

 

  

I’ve been cooking up this one for a while. A friend in my office switched jobs and it just seemed like the right message for a new start! 

When I showed another friend, she said, “Oh! You cheat and write it all out first!” And I said YES! Nothing is ever as hard as it looks! Also, if it weren’t easy, I wouldn’t do it. 

This did take a little longer than anticipated but I love the look of bold satin stitch text.

Farmer’s Market Tote

I worked up this tote last summer and felt like it was a perfect produce bag for Farmer’s Market! I forgot that yarn is, well… stretchy, so it had a lot of sag. A cotton yarn would probably keep shape a bit better, but I tie a knot in the strap to shorten it up and that works fine too!

I’ll be teaching a Crochet Basics class at the Library on April 25 (next weekend!). If you’d like to learn how to start crocheting- I’d love to teach you!

My first stab at embroidery… I thought I was doing it wrong so I didn’t even try again for about 3 years!

Baby Death Star (Pattern). I learned how to embroider because it seemed like a perfect gift. This one went straight to my husband! 

This mama sloth + baby just belonged to my friend Amanda. I stitched it up and sent it where it already needed to be. (Pattern)
