It's been a bit of a mad dash around here today. Thank goodness Pete had today off!
First, I wanted to get together a post for whip up on French monochromatic cross-stitch designs. I have the design I included in the post over there coming from Stitching Bits and Bobs. Bobbie, the owner, has been a peach! I had to special order the thread because it takes a *ton* of the same color (*duh*) which had to be dyed up all in the same lot. I'm hoping to get everything to start on it in the next week!
I also had to get all the fabric for my quilting class washed and pressed today. It's in the washer on *super* gentle cycle as we speak.
The rest of the morning has been taken up with work (lots of orders for Black Sheep Bags since I was featured in an article in CNA Magazine!) This did give me time to get caught up on the crafting podcasts though. Here's some new ones (episodes) I listened to:
- About Time -- Great interview with the Yarn Harlot.
- KnitCast -- Marie's 1st Anniversary show with lots of guests!
- Cast On -- Brenda's latest episode with some interesting ideas on advertising and podcasting.
- FiberCast -- New to me. Not really about knitting -- this podcast is more about spinning and fiberarts in general. Great episode with info on raising Angora bunnies.
So you see. . . it's been a busy day. And I still have a quilting class ahead of me!
And Liz, you have *completely* changed my mind about CVM!! I am in love and will not be happy until I have a whole mess of CVM in my hot little hands. I think Theresa & I will be combing MS&W this year for this lovely fiber. I'm now thinking that the dyeing process must not have been kind to the CVM I had, because the lovely chocolate brown stuff you sent was so soft and springy that we could hardly believe it! Thanks again! We are having a lot of fun trying out these new fibers and were ooohing and aaahing as we fondled each one.
