Bouncing Again

I really wish I could focus on one skill and develop it completely before going on to try something else, but that isn’t me. I have too many interests, and I want to indulge all of them at once. Not only that, but after being anchored to crochet for, what, four months I think, I am heartily […]

Tatting organization

Because today was payday, and I had my allowance, I trotted over to the local Hobby Lobby this afternoon, looking, once again, for a way to organize my tatting shuttles. I had purchased a couple of small, Tupperware-type boxes at the dollar store, but my shuttle collection was not only outgrowing the box (because I […]

Shuttle Storage

A pair of Banyek shuttles arrived today! Woot! So there are only two more left at large. Or three. I’ve decided I need a case or something for the storage of my shuttles and tatting supplies. I’m a huge fan of organization in my fiber arts room, although you wouldn’t know it to look at […]

To recap, my interests are loom beading, weaving, spinning on wheels and spindles, knitting, crochet, naalbinding, chain maille, stained glass, and Kumihimo. I guess I should […]

Jump rings

Yesterday, the stainless steel mandrels I ordered from Contenti a few days ago arrived in the mail. I was a little bit peeved, both at myself and Contenti, because the mandrel set cost a little under $7 and was the only thing I needed from them, and I tried really hard to find something else […]

Still here…

I didn’t realize how long it had been since I last posted! So, to update: life, as usual, has gotten in the way of such things as blogging. In the last few months, we have had to gut the main bathroom (which is still in the process of being renovated), I failed two of my […]
