June SAL with Helene

Emma Crafts Design

Happy Friday readers!

I know, I know, I’m really late and not catching up, but oh well those will get done eventually! I’ve just finished the June design, from Helene et Mahelia’s website. In case you’ve missed it, this year in Helene’s mystery SAL, we are stitching forest animals! And they are all so cute 😊

From all the steps, it was really difficult to figure our what this month’s animal would be.

But it really came alive with the backstitching! It was really amazing. So here is my little June squirrel! 🐿

Felted Phone Cases

feltingandfiberstudio

I have about run out of felted phone cases to sell at the store. I have some larger ones for those “gigantic” phones but needed some smaller ones that fit a smaller phone. I already have a bunch of kits made up for a felted phone class that I ended up not teaching so I used those. The theme for the phone class was “cosmic”. I find with beginner classes it is easier to have the students do similar designs so that people don’t get stuck on what their phone case should look like and work more on the techniques of felting. So these kits were made up to work with a dark sky and planets, moons or stars.

The kits include batts and a few embellishments with different colored wool and some dyed silk noil. Again, for a beginner class I like to keep it simple. So I was…

Rainbow Edged Granny Square

Zeens and Roger

I wanted to call this Easy Granny and her Rainbow Edge but I thought it sounded a bit saucy. It’s now just a Rainbow Edged Granny Square. A very traditional sort of crochet blanket but one that seems to be quite popular at the moment. Rainbows are in! I posted the above picture on Instagram yesterday and the response was really positive. There were loads of lovely comments and that surprised me. I love that the simple granny square gets so much attention.

Some details then.

It measures around 89cm (35″), plenty big enough for a baby blanket that’ll see  you through to toddler years.

When I was making the granny square I turned it every round to prevent a twist. I toyed with doing that for the rainbow border but in the end I decided I wanted all the colours to have a “right” side. I joined each rainbow…

Is Your Blog In A Rut?

Of Snailmail, Books & Vanities

coffee-2354892_960_720Mine is! And it bothers me 🙄

So okay I’m 7 months pregnant and I can’t be into a lot of stuff because I should be taking it easy, which also means less things to blog about.

My interests of late has also gone to pregnancy specific topics from post-delivery recovery to breastfeeding … and I don’t want to blog about those 🤔

But I want to blog, because blogging is a life saver for me. Every single like and comment is precious human interaction. The act of putting my thoughts out there not only cathartic and soothing but also, undeniably fun.

Ergo, I am not having a lot of fun lately by allowing my blog to fall by the wayside.

We need a remedy.

Blog Events/Challenges

There was a time in the not-so-distant past when I participated in a few weekly blog challenges. They were always fun, thought provoking…
