Show & Tell Tuesday

Hi Crafty Friends!

I’m so excited to share with you the first of a weekly post about the crafty things that members of our staff have whipped up. Every Tuesday, I’ll share with you some of our own personal crafty endeavors from the previous week, and we’d love to hear about what you’ve been up to, too!

Please leave us a comment to tell us what you’ve been working on, and maybe we can all help inspire each other. And don’t forget you can share photos of your works-in-progress on our Flickr page!

  1. I posted photos on the FlickR site of things I knit and sewed for grandchildren.

    I love these projects! I especially enjoy the tutorials and links to the books. I am really happy to find I already purchased a featured book!

    I am completing another Heirloom Baby Blanket. I have some stitching holidays to sew before trimming the seam allowance and washing and drying it. This one is white Swiss Flannel with barely Ecru Cluney Lace Edging. Hem stitch is sewn using pale pink silk thread that is slightly thicker than the 80 wt cotton used in the first stitching to attach lace to the fabric. This is for a new niece.

    I have pink and blue blankets cut out and heavily starched in readiness for the next blankets. I recently edged a blue one with bias quilt binding in a light blue plaid. It is not as soft on the edges than when using the lighter weight lace, but it was appropriate for the baby boy who had a Macho Motocross theme for his baby shower.

    I am knitting my first Fair Isle sweater for my husband. I have the book and DVD, but wish I’d taken a class. I will go to my local yarn shop for some help.

    • It sounds like you’ve been super busy! I can’t wait to check out the photos you’ve posted on Flickr! And I’m looking forward to seeing pictures of that sweater! 🙂
