And for those of you in the U.S., happy Independence Day!
Roundup of Week 24: What We Crafted From June 20-26
- Elabeth came back to check in after a while away. Yay! While she was elsewhere, she stood in a huge long line for free ice cream — check out this photo on Flickr in which some of Elabeth appears, in the center behind Girl with Red Bag. Look for the grey and white skirt, her foot, her hand, and her pink iPhone. (It's Where's Elabeth!) She then did some planning for Fall yarn orders for her store, and promises more crafting will occur soon.
- Jessica made it halfway through the toe decreases in her dad's socks, made lemon bars, took a road trip to Canada to get German sausages (ooo, a traveler! ;)), which then got cooked for dinner, and saw 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, which provoked much singing and quoting.
- Susie came back after a week of uncraftiness (s'okay ... everyone needs a break, right? ;D) to make some solid perfume (recipe here!). Mmmm, natural perfume...
Check-in for Week 25: What Have You Done Lately? (June 27-July 3)
What I did this week:
The giganto writing project continues; I'm up to 41,621 words as of early this morning. WHEW. Aside from that, last Sunday and Monday were more bust than craft, absorbed by Stressful Nonsense. Tuesday wasn't too much better, but I made some creative packaging for an Etsy order. Wednesday, I put together the rest of the Etsy order packaging and made a cute little hand-stamped card. Awww. Thursday, I unfolded my spinning wheel (which was still in the carrying case after its last stint out of the house), cleaned the craft room a little and got out some spinning fiber in preparation for the Tour de Fleece, took some photos of charm pins, and listed said charm pins in the Etsy shop. Friday, I took some more pre-Tour-de-Fleece spinning fiber photos and added them to my Ravelry stash page, warped my inkle loom, and wove my first inkle band! Saturday, the long-awaited Tour de Fleece started, and I kicked it off by spinning some of the oceany-colored Merino/Tussah left over from dyeing and carding for the Robin Goodfellow spinning fiber batts for last month's Phat Fiber sampler box.
Not too bad, huh? Had a couple of off weeks, but the Craft Must Go On!
