Knitting along…and a Sewing Bee…
So, before that I share my knitting along progress, I wanted to feel you all out about something.
I have really been enjoying Ginny’s yarn-along and it has inspired me so fully in keeping up with my needlecrafting. And while I do adore knitting, I have found myself neglecting my poor sewing machine in favor of fiber crafts. So, I am making a conscious effort to split my crafting time more equally between sewing and knitting/crochet. In an attempt to keep myself on track I have decided that I am going to make a special post each week sharing what it is that I am sewing at the moment.
To inspire myself to keep stitching and also to collect a number of posts here in my new space that focus on my sewing.
I have also been thinking about how there are so many of us in this community that do both knitting/crochet in addition to sewing ( or just sewing alone) and I wanted to see if there is an interest by any of my friends to join me in a bit of a Sewing Bee. I have already spoken to Ginny regarding the similarities, and although it would be similar to the yarn along in terms of sharing projects between friends and a Flickr group, there won’t be any reading involved. The gist will be to simply write a post on your blog (linking to the Sewing Bee) of what it is that you are currently working on in your sewing space with a photo… whether it be hand or machine stitching.
Unfortunately, I am unable to use Mr Linky on WordPress so anyone participating will just simply leave their links in the comments for each weekly Sewing Bee. I will attempt to keep a list of participants in a link on my sidebar and update it weekly.
The day of the week will most likely be Thursdays and I would love any feedback from any one regarding something to add, or something that they would love to see.
Like minded chicas…the sharing of patterns and progress of sewing.
What could be better than that?
Aside from yarn and needles, that is.
The Forgotten Garden. This book is entirely enthraling and enchanting all at once. It had me with the hedge maze and the hidden cottage. It is a big book, but with the amount of baths I am taking this time of year, there is plenty of time to escape to a mysterious country side.
Oh yes, there is.
On the needles~
That little baby I started last week. He sits patiently waiting for me to attach his arms and torso to that monsterous head. And YES, I did make the body a bit short, but this time it was on purpose .
I encourage you all to visit the lovely Ginny of Small Things over in her space to participate in the weekly Yarn Along.
And if you are interested in joining in on the Sewing Bee….
