On My Craft Table This Week

Posted by Johanna Fox on

Hope you all had a nice Mother's Day - whether you enjoyed the love of a 2- or 4-legged family member or enjoyed a peaceful Sunday. I had the pleasure of seeing my mom and gifting her with a little something I thought she would like.  It wouldn't be a gift from me without some fun wrapping element. I played with some leftover yarn and knotted it in increments to make a 'ribbon' then created a tassel for the center. I like the packaging to be fun, too! (Do you do anything fun to embellish gifts?)

I shared the mixed media postcards that I created for an international postcard swap sponsored by iHanna. I have been on the receiving end of some mailbox art in the past couple of weeks. Here is what has come in so far:

I have been working on a longtime project idea - contemporary/modern crazy quilting! It combines my love of mixed media and fabric with my enjoyment of handwork. I am beginning with a monochromatic look. Fun to create!

Finally I have started another knitting project- socks!! I cast on using this simple sock pattern from Cascade yarns (which we are adding to our shop) and a skein of their Heritage sock yarn.  

I am knitting them using size 2 double pointed needles. They feel small compared to the sweater I just finished but I am excited to be on this knitting journey to a new wearable! And double pointed needles are so manageable to use!! Stay tuned!

What are you working on?

Make time to make something!

  • I have always wanted to make a crazy quilt, with all of the lace, beading, and stitching embellishments, but I’ve found it a challenge to collect the traditional fabrics I’ve seen in crazy quilts. Your concept eliminates that challenge. I am inspired once again!
