I'm moving!

I'll be blogging from this site in future:
Posting should be a little more regular. Please come and check it out!

With Irene looming, we had planned lots of reading, crafting and snacks for the weekend. Thankfully Irene didn't cause us any problems (I think we may have slept through the worst of it.) Not much of the crafting happened, but I did make this necklace to wear to a friend's upcoming wedding. It's pretty much a very long friendship bracelet with dyed and microbeaded wood beads.
Here are some new buddies who hid out from the storm in our backyard– they looked so cozy!

Back from Ohio!

Here are some photos from our visit to Ohio– my little brother just graduated from College and my Dad retired from teaching. As you can imagine, there was much to celebrate!
(Plenty of Eastern Bluebirds and Tree Swallows to be banded too.)

I was asked to take part in the book, 'Push: stitchery' some months ago– it's a collection of embroiderers and stitchers gathered by Jamie Chalmers of Mr. X stitch. It will be on the shelves this September, but you can have a bit of a sneak peak over on Amazon!
Maybe you've noticed already, but YES that is a piece of mine on the cover!
Thanks Jamie!

Some new and some new-to-me shows that are... I won't say hilarious... they're very funny.

Some of the cards I make while freelancing at Martha Stewart are featured on the Crafts Dept.'s blog today!
Thanks again, Jodi!

Here's one of my pillows finished and at home on the couch. I also got a chance to finish this shirt. I would have preferred to exclude the gather under the button placket, but I was a little to hasty in my measurements when I cut the fabric. This was the best solution I could come up with. It's made of super cozy flannel and I'm really pleased with it.

maybe with brownies or oatmeal cookies?

I've been feeling pretty domestic recently. I think it's this weather.

Here are a couple of pillows I made as gifts for friends and family. I have two in the works for home, but I haven't bought the pillow forms yet. I'll share them once I do. This quilting pattern is so simple but I think it looks great. The pillow on the right uses this awesome metallic silver/flax colored linen. It's the best stuff ever. You can find it at Gray Lines in Manhattan.
Maybe if I get snowed in I'll attempt something a little more hardcore. –>
