Tilly and the Buttons Agnes Tee

Tilly and the Buttons Agnes Tee

Hello my lovelies!

Today I want to talk a bit more about everyone's favorite tee pattern: the Tilly and the Buttons Agnes tee. I have already mentioned this pattern on the blog before. It was my September make for the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network. However, this is the test version I sewed up first to check for any potentially necessary adjustments. This black version of Agnes has ended up being extremely versatile and I've worn it several times already. It makes sense after all, black does go with everything!

Honey Bee Cross Stitch

Honey Bee Cross Stitch

Hello Everybody!

I have a particularly exciting finished project to show you today. This one has been about a year in the making. It all started when I mentioned to my lovely, honey bee-obsessed husband, Evan, last Autumn that there was such a thing as honey bee cross stitch patterns. He was immediately intrigued so, one Google search later, we had ordered a cross stitch kit.

Maker of the Week - Casey Maura: Casey's Creative Musings

Hello Readers!

The lovely Casey is our next Maker of the Week. Casey was one of the first bloggers I discovered way back when I was just beginning to be interested in sewing. She inspired me to keep trying even though I had so many flops and failures there at the start. I loved reading back through all of her old blog posts and imagining being able to sew that well some day. Suffice it to say, I am fangirling a little over here! Keep reading to learn a bit more about Casey!

Episode Twenty-Four: Fall Is In The Air

The weather has been pleasantly mild here in Virginia. If you hadn't guessed, I am thoroughly enjoying it! I have done quite a bit of sewing and knitting in the past week. I am still addicted to my Find Your Fade shawl. . . It is so lovely and soft and squishy!

I've also been dyeing some yarn again. It has been absolutely amazing! I can't wait to show you what all my new colorways.

And now I'm off to pack up some more boxes. Enjoy the show!

Cheerful Socks

Cheerful Socks

I finished knitting this pair of two-at-a-time socks a few weeks ago. They are knit out of a couple of minis I had from experimenting with yarn dyeing. They are a 75% Superwash Merino/25% Nylon yarn blend which is absolutely perfect for socks.  I used the Hermione's Everyday Socks pattern by Erica Lueder which is a free pattern on Ravelry.
