Craft or Bust Week 28 Check-In and Roundup (July 11-17)

Hope everyone's summer's been good so far. Ours has been rainy and odd, but I've had worse. ;)

Roundup of Week 27: What We Crafted From July 4-July 10

  • Jessica finished her Citron (awesome! Love that goshdarn pattern), made two more sides of her brother's dice bag, cast on a fluffy scarf for a friend, made goulash, invented a recipe for un-puddingy banana pudding that tasted good, applied for more jobs, took some cool photos while hiking with friends (check them out on her blog, and made mix albums for her family.
  • Susie made a dress of questionable tastefulness — I feel like there should be a (tm) after that ;) — and blogged it here, wore it to a Good Event and blogged that, too, worked on a knitted fish hat (which sounds hilarious), worked on a design for transforming a shirt into a skirt, and added to her hoard a very grand total of 30 vintage crafts magazines. Teh awesome.

Check-in for Week 28: What Have You Done Lately? (July 11-17)

What I did this week:

Getting readyI am really, seriously amazing myself by still writing every single day. Anyone want to take bets on when I break my stride? ;) This week I also wrote a draft of a Twitter-related article on Sunday, along with brainstorming some crazy ideas for group spinning activities, carding 21 whole ounces of batts, spun the neverending turquoise yarn on my spindle, and rearranged my Etsy shop. Monday, I craft-store-hopped to find packaging for my Phat Fiber samples, which is kinda crafty, I guess. Tuesday, I slightly redesigned my Phat Fiber sample labels, made a whole bunch of packaging, packaged a ton of samples, made a bunch of shell-shaped charm pins and a shawl pin, and started spinning some beautiful purple batts from Enchanted Knoll. Wednesday, I spun some more of the purple batts, blogged, and designed and uploaded the shawl pin tips and tricks page on the S&C Web site. Thursday, I spun some more, made more shawl pins (including a new design), and took a bunch of photos of newly-made things. Friday I went out with a friend and was creatively self-promotey at a bar ... ha, ha — I did hand out six business cards. ;) Saturday, I started a new bobbin of Rubies and Sapphires Merino yarn, and that was that.
